#Review of The War Against the Assholes by Sam Munson

The novel is set in a Manhattan “shrouded in mystery” and follows a 17-year-old Catholic high school student who begins to acquire supernatural powers after being introduced to a book called The Calendar of Sleights by a strange classmate. The protagonist is then pulled into a long-running war among rival factions of magicians.

So I wasn't so sure about this one.  Having a word like asshole as part of a title is well a little much.  But I really liked the cover and what the book was about.  Im all for the magic.  This reminded me of the movie/book The Ganges of New York but with a magic twist.  

Although the characters were great in this one that author leaves the reader to figure out what was going on and well after a lot of this going on I just didnt know what to do.  This book in many places was very confusing and hard to follow.
