Summary: The Jinx is the story of Stephen Grayson, a 13-year old whose run of bad luck gets so bad he worries he is endangering his family. Fearing he is cursed, he flees home to protect his family, only to find that he is in the middle of a tug-of war between a cult obsessed with order and misshapen monsters known as “Chaons” who seem bent on hunting him down.

Thoughts: The Jinx was quite an entertaining read, it’s also short so it only took me a couple of hours to get through.
One thing I really liked about The Jinx was that it talked a bit about probabilities and what’s possible and what isn’t. It was really intriguing how probability worked; or didn’t in some cases; within the novel.
The story itself was interesting and I thought it was quite a unique concept. I found it to be quite entertaining and the pacing was really good. There were never any incredibly slow moments and never any that were too fast.
I really enjoyed The Jinx as it was a nice story to just sit down and read in one sitting.
