Just when I thought that there could not be any original and interesting Supernatural YA Novels, K.
R Conway seemed to prove me wrong with UnderTow, a great start of a mind blowing series.
First thing First, I googled the meaning of UNDERTOW which is A Strong CurrentAfter finishing the book, I think that the title pretty much describes the series very well because , what does the strong current do chaos, disasters,loss, then eventually becoming stronger and perhaps recovery.
The Prologue is very captivating, you only need to read a few pages to get hooked Although after the prologue the intensity slowed down a bit, I was not able to stop reading due to the anticipation of wanting to know what happens next and fallin What an amazing and absorbing read The details and descriptions from K.
R Conway blew me away and I was sucked into this book in no time It s a really great beginning to a series It has that classic paranormal romance feel without seeming like all of the other books Undertow definitely stands out in the sea of YA paranormals I really connected with these characters They seemed authentic, and I could relate to different parts of all of them Characters are always a big deal for me, so that was a relief There are different layers to the characters, and I loved getting to knowandabout them as the story progressed It definitely kept my attention I had no idea what to expect whenever I started Undertow It can always be hit or miss with me and YA paranormal romance But wow This author absolutely blew me away If you re a YA Luckless Eila Is Unknowingly The Last Of Her Kind Rare Gifted Breakable Stunning Raef Is Her Kind S Historic Enemy Soulless Lethal Lost A Legendary DeathYears Before Would Set Their Lives To Collide, Forcing A Beautiful Killer To Become A Savior, A Simple Wallflower To Become A Warrior, And Ruthless Destiny To Become A Death SentenceMMARY Eila Walker Knows Luck Is Not A Friend, So She Is Downright Shocked To Inherit A Million Dollar Cape Cod Home And Yeah, Her New Town Isn T Perfect The Cheerleaders Are Heinous Clones, The Local Undertow Can Kill Ya, And Her Great Grams Was Supposedly Fried By Lightning In The Harbor Square Still, Eila Is Hopeful Her Luckless Days Are In The Past Until History Decides To Repeat ItselfWhen Drool Worthy Raef O Reilly Becomes Her Friendly, Yet Weirdly Protective Shadow, Eila Thinks Life Is Pretty Darn Perfect Until She Is Hauled Beneath The Waves By An Unnatural Undertow Revealing Coal Black Eyes And Iron Like Strength As He Rescues Her, Raef Can No Longer Hide What He Is Or What She Can Do Eila, Last Of Her Kind, Can Supposedly Channel The Power Of Human Souls, While Raef Is Adept At Stealing Them Even Worse, The Legend About Her Ancestor Isn T Such A Myth, Since Eila S Grandmother Was One Kick Butt Warrior Until Her Lightning Like Power Backfired A Power That Is Written All Over Eila S DNADetermined To Stay One Step Ahead Of A Dangerous Clan That Is Hunting Her, Raef, Along With Three Unlikely Allies, Will Do All They Can To Protect Her But As Hidden Pieces Of Their Brutal Histories Unravel, Eila Begins To Understand Just What Went Down In The Harbor Square She Soon Realizes That Following In Her Grandmother S Fearless Footsteps May Be The Only Way To Save Those She Loves Including Raef I wanted answers instantly.
Come to think of it, answers would have been helpful before I moved to this cursed strip of sand.
Why couldn t Mr Talbot have said, Oh yes, the home is lovely There are some sea monsters with hands like Schwarzenegger and your eyeballs may start to glow in the dark, but other than that, the place is greatSweet dreamor a waking nightmare For Eila Walker, inheriting a million dollar Cape Cod home is a dream come true Her and her legal guardian Mae can have a fresh start putting behind them the hardships of the past Mean cheerleaders weird neighbours aside, the whole thing seems too good to be true.
That is, until Eila realises she s inheritedthan a house She s also inherited a deadly legacy The present and the past collide.
Finding out her great grandmother was a kind of magical warrior is the least of Eila s worries Because the evil that I love this cover The simplicity is perfect, yet it still does a good job of giving us the feel of the book kind of mysterious with a little spunk This is the story of a girl Eila who inherits a mansion on the coast She moves before her senior year of high school and finds a lot of interesting friends who help her as she begins to unearth dangerous family secrets Raef is new to the school too and seems to be watching out for her, but Eila is equal parts afraid of and drawn to him.
Eila is analright character I never connected strongly with her At first she seemed like an old soul to me, too smart to get caught up in the drama of high school and content to be alone While not a leader, she seemed pretty confident in herself As the story goes on, she talks about forcing herself to be confident, to step up Maybe she needed a push to become a leader, but I don t think she was eve Thanks to Netgalley for a copy of this novel in return for an honest review Forreviews, visit thisisjustabookblog.
com If you ve seen my updates while reading this novel, I m sure you won t be surprised to hear that I didn t enjoy this book It just wasn t very well written, at all The narrative voice was irritating, and the writing was just all wrong It wasn t like it was littered with grammatical errors or something though there were a few typos , but it just didn t sound very good at all Not only that, but there were a couple of times that the author cheated at narration If you re going to write in first person, you can t just then give other people s reasonings for doing things, which the narrator just has no way of knowing It s frustrating Also, and this isof a style thing, the author capitalised words to show emphasis This just looks really amateurish in comparison to italics 3.
5 stars I have mixed feelings about this book For the most part, I found that I really liked it However, there were some things that I came across, particularly around the halfway point, that entirely ruined the way I saw it.
The good notes I think the concept was really interesting I liked that this book wasn t about your typical vampire or werewolves or witches, and I really enjoyed reading as Eila found out about who she is and how she came to be I thought the book flowed well, and I liked that the book kept us in enough suspense, but not dragged out to where it ll was irritating And I liked that it wasn t too predictable, but it wasn t too far fetched that you were left thinking where the heck did tha
I received a free digital copy for review.
OK, so apparently I m going to be THAT person reviewing opposite from everyone else this time.
I felt like a pendulum while reading this book Sometimes I loved the story idea and writing style, and then several pages later I didn t I seemed to enjoy the beginning of the book, but then it was boring in the middle I becameinterested toward the end Perhaps if it was cut down some and combined with the next book I would have liked the series better Upon reflection, I was probablyenad with the supporting characters of MJ and Ana than the main characters.
Other books in a similar genre girl loves immortal has enough of an intricate story that I forget about the ick factor of some 200 year old man in a sizzling hot, never aging body is in love with a girl in HIGH SCHOOL I kept thinking about that throughout the Undertow contains majority of the things I hated in Paranormal Novel Predictable plot, instalove, hot transfer guy, common evil cheerleader squad, a couple of slut shaming and a Mary Sue character, I shouldn t be able to like this book by default.
But damn, I had a blast I like that the story doesn t just center around the very special, rare MC Eila and her issues and drama The side characters exists not just to make the MC good in the readers eyes, they had their own story and own spotlight, which led the way to the best couple in this book for me Ana and Kian,Ana reminds me so much of JO from the Soul Eaters Seriesand my favorite character MJMy eyes grew wide, Are you kidding me Is that what grabbed me Some sort of, what Zombie I sat there, unable to move, cemented by a newfo
Basically the book was born because of some followers on Facebook who knew I was a journalist I can remember posting two scenes The opening prologue and the bonfire scene.
I wrote them out of boredom As a journalist I d never written fiction, let alone dreamed up an entire story line, characters, world, etc Quite frankly, it s HARD Once those two scenes were up, however, I began getting constant reque
