We're so happy that the world didn't end yesterday and we get to be part of this tour!
When paranormal expert Robyn Wise is offered an outrageous sum of money to cure a boy who is turning into a dead tree, she's very sceptical. A politician ready to pay that much to make his son stop growing branches instead of hair? Come on! She's more likely to be abducted by aliens. This is a trap. Or much worse. And, of course, it's much worse.
The child is turning into a dark portal, created by a powerful entity determined to absorb Fairyland's power. This means that not only queen Titania and her court are in danger, but the very balance of the magic fluxes.
Robyn'd rather stick a pencil in her own eye but. to learn how to destroy the portal, she has to sneak into the Wizardry Council, a place full of wizards who are hiding something—though it’s certainly not their dislike of her.
There, she discovers a terrible secret that could help to overthrow Fairyland's enemies for good, but puts her in the midst of an ancient and deadly war, and not as a bystander, but as the main target
*Thanks to the author for the e-copy to review*
If we are being honest, it was hard to get into the book at first, not because it has a slow beginning, actually it starts in the middle of a big problem... what best way to start your night than with a werewolf trying to eat you, right?
But because (and I'm not sure this is the way the book is formatted or my computer was being a pain) the book is just one bog block of text... I just feel like some parts or sentences would have been delivered with more impact if they were, lets say... in a different paragraph or at least have more distance between each paragraph... it was hard to keep track of which line I was when everything was the same.
Another little thing was the language, which is not a problem really, it's just that I'm not used to it and the book is set in England, the author is British... yeah you get the picture...
Robyn is a great main character. She lives with her uncle, 2 geeks, a dog and a ghost.
You get how full of different elements this book is, right? From werewolf to computer geeks, ghost to shamans... It has it all, so if you love paranormal books, you'll probably enjoy the variety in Supernatural Freak.
Will, the ghost, is also a good character... some kind of father to her in many ways. He always takes care of Robyn and helps her clean up after her jobs. I love that Louise give him magic... he's not your typical ghost that can only throw stuff around and walk through walls... He can do much more like make a super comfy bed out of nowhere!
The book has many twist and turns that will keep you entertained.
It's full of mystery and paanormal elements, so I'd enjoy that very much
I wish there was more romance into it, but as part of a series, maybe I'll have to wait a bit more for it...
All in all, it was a great read and I'd love to see how it continues!
