This book starts with a bang and does not let up until the very end. The story is centered around a group of five high school boys that have known each other almost their entire lives. These boys all feel like brothers, even though they are not. But, they have such close ties to each other, they are more like family, than just friends. These boys come into contact with a mysterious energy source at the edge of a forest and their lives are forever changed. After coming into contact with this mysterious energy, each of the boys gained a different superhero type of sense. It turns out the that it was a good thing they received these gifts, because they would need them for the battles they were about to be up against. They soon came into contact with a group of evil thugs in the town next to theirs. These evil doers were destroying the town. The town's name was Sandry Lake, and their police department was almost non-exist-ant. So, the boys felt it was their job to get these evil doers under control.
Through the guidance of a dark stranger and a beautiful, great fighting girl named Alina, the boys became protectors of Sandry Lake and the surrounding area. They would keep their visits to the area from their family and friends, and all of the secrecy created a lot of stress and tension. The fights were always brutal and left the boys exhausted, and it became more and more difficult to keep their secret to themselves,
K.N. Smith has proven herself to be a great writer with this debut novel. She grabs your attention on the first page and keeps it until the very last page. She brings depth to the characters and the scenery that feels genuine, and makes the reader feel like they are part of the story. I recommend this book for any person wanting to read a great, action packed story. The target population might be for young adults, but I loved it, and I have not been considered a young adult for several years. Having done such a wonderful job on her debut novel, I can't wait to read her future books! I received this book from K.N. Smith in exchange for my honest review, and I am truly glad I was able to read it!
Here is a short excerpt from the book to give an example of the kind of writing you can expect:
"And it took only a few steps for their senses to flare as they saw numerous thugs running behind them. Practically tripping over one another to get to the boys, they advanced with Olympic level speed, and swarmed like ants upon the group. Loc 2169 of 2480 or 80%
