Mientologene is a norwegian book by Tom Kristensen. (The additional title is: World of spycraft).
The story revolves around Eric and Live. We mostly follow Eric’s side of the story, and it all takes place in Oslo (the capitol of Norway for those who didn’t know). In a place called Maridalen there is a house, that in many ways look abandoned. Except one day Live goes by, there are chanting and moaning. The next times she is around the house she has brought Eric with her.
It’s safe to say that something is not right in the house. Lucky for our main characters, Eric’s father owns a stor that sells spy-equipment, that really comes in handy. With some spying they are starting to figure out some things. Problems however arises when Live seems to disappear.
This book was a fairly quick read for me. The chapters are short, and the pace of the story is moving along quite nicely. Teenagers that disappears, mixed with some version of a sect, makes for both a good story, but also some creepiness (if that’s a word). What adults are willing and capable of doing even when kids are involved, probably shouldn’t surprise me any more, but it still does.
There was one thing I didn’t liked that much about the book, the ending. Not because it was a bad ending, but it was rather abrupt. The book was released earlier this year, but considering the abrupt ending and the additional title, I can’t help but wonder if this is going to be a serie… And if it is (which I’m hoping for), I’ so going to read the next book! 🙂
