Luck is the story of Daniel – a man born with the gift of being able to influence others. He learns that he can both charm as well as destroy. As his ability grows, so does his craving for acceptance.

My Review
Luck is one of those books that sucks you in and holds you hostage until the ve
ry end. It's an intriguing novel that will have you wondering just what exactly might happen next. And as a fan of Chris Coppel's books, I have to say, this was yet another one that didn't disappoint.
Luck tells the sto
ry of a man named Daniel. But Daniel isn't quite a man when the story starts. No, Daniel is a newborn. His parents died in a car accident, but he was able to be saved. And now he's being raised by his mother's sister and her husband. 
But Daniel isn't like othe
r kids. Daniel has the ability to influence people. At first, he doesn't understand his ability. All Daniel knows is that he can make bad things happen to people he doesn't like while keeping the people he does like close to him, manipulating them however he wants. And as he gets older, his power gets stronger. And when Daniel gets involved in politics, that's when all hell breaks loose. 
really liked this story. It was a fun read that reminded me a little bit of Carrie in a way. But where Carrie was meek and mild (until the prom, at least), Daniel is bold and brash right from the very start. The world is his stage. The people are his puppets, and he's the puppet master. 
Daniel is easily one of the most unlikeable (and cocky) cha
racters I've read in a while. And his adoptive parents are a bit too...useless, I wanna say. They'd rather turn a blind eye and bury their heads in the sand (at least at first) than acknowledge that there's something wrong with Daniel. Although, to be fair to them, he's pretty good at manipulating them as well. So there's that.
The plot is easy to get into, and you'll find you
rself turning the pages eagerly, wanting to know what havoc Daniel might wreak next. Will anyone be able to stop him before it's too late?
Definitely give this one a 
read if you're looking for a dark, engaging thrill ride that will keep you on your toes.
