All Saints Day reading

Yep there are even books that take place the day after Halloween. Well one that I know of for sure.

X-Man All Saints Day: This might not be a book to read if the X-Men history--or more specifically the Summers family--give you a headache. It stars Nate Grey, who's basically an alternate universe teenaged version of Cable. Nate was built as a weapon but he wasn't built to last. He's dying from his powers and not really sure what to do about it. On Halloween night he meets a kid that he can sense is dying too. Not long after he decides to follow up on some rumors of a doctor that preforms miracles. I suppose it's a little cliché when he arrives at what's basically a set up for a horror flick with superpowers. But there's some pretty tragic twists and at the end Nate has to decide how far he's willing to go to save the kid and his own life or if they should just accept their fate. Not ground breaking but I enjoyed it nonetheless.
