The Buried Covenant by Shawn Keenan

Being hardheaded is a common character flaw, but most teenagers can’t crack a concrete curb with their skull. And while a skilled skateboarder appears to defy gravity, he can’t keep water from pouring out of an upturned cup. Unintentionally tapping into latent powers has brought Jayke Wolff to the attention of the Aduro, an ancient society plotting an apocalyptic new world order. He’s now their number one draft pick, and they’ve dispatched their most seductive member to close the deal. It shouldn’t take much convincing a hormonal teenage boy to turn his back on a cryptic covenant for a future of self-indulgence and unchecked power. But if Jayke can’t be tempted by pleasures of the flesh, the flesh can be influenced in less pleasant ways as well. Armageddon can’t wait forever. Killing Jayke will also work.
Not remembering your past and not believing in your future can make it hard to choose who you’re going to be. Jayke has to decide how much of his teenage life he’s willing to sacrifice for a greater good. After all, you’re only young once.

My Review  ☺☺☺☺☺

Wow! This was a completely amazing book! The first few pages had me hooked.  I was intrigued by the mystery surrounding the main character, Jayke Wolff, through the first part of the book. Then finding out the truth about his particular abilities and memory loss was simply amazing! This is a great mixture of awkward teenage boy & amazing supernatural adventures. This book is very different from any other paranormal book I've read - a completely unique story! I can't wait to find out what happens next!
