Jay Walker has two wishes: to perform the play of his dreams alongside his best friend at Wellington’s Tory Street Theatre, and to meet that special someone. Someone he’d go to the ends of the earth for. Someone who might only exist in fairy tales.
When Jay meets accordion busker Lethe Cross, it’s like living a dream come true. Lethe’s music captivates Jay, and he resolves to meet the man who plays so beautifully. But then he discovers Lethe’s life is more like a nightmare. The phrase “down on his luck” can’t begin to cover it. Determined to help, Jay does some snooping for answers—and winds up on the wrong end of a centuries-old curse. The good news is there’s a way to break it. The bad news is it might cost Jay his life.
Unmasked was an excellent book filled with many emotional parts both happy and sad. I cried in some parts of the book, but it was really good. Jay and his best friend Gristle have a dream to perform at Wellington’s Tory Street Theater, but when Jay asked the manager for a chance to perform there, he was rejected. As a result he hid the truth from his best friend but never did he imagine that things were going to take a turn for the worst. During Jay’s outings he meets a musician by the name of Lethe playing a soul tearing song. Moved, Jay looks for the man again and as a result starts meeting each other. They both hit off really well and Jay starts hanging out less and less with Gristle. As the story unravels, many events occur and now Jay must make a choice to continue the way he is living or take his own path, the path with the one he loves. Read to find out!!
