The Abnormals Underground Box Set [Books 1-5][A Teen Urban Fantasy Collection]
The writing reads like my fifth grade gifted and talented class stories. I've written research papers less stilted than this book is. Then the characters are not good. The story begins from a 2 year old childs point of view. Her car seat was awkward. What 2 year old says awkward? Or acts like that? Its ridiculous. Then fast forward until shes in high school. Some weird steorotypical mage talks to her. Some weird guys in suits come after her at home so she takes a katana to try to stab four people? While she's injured? Then the mage binds her and tells her just after she finds her dad missing and she is all "ok cool. I cant be mad about that."? Huh? The dialogue is weird. Her behavior is weird. The descriptions are weird and pulled from fairy tales. It's just not good. The about this book pop up said it takes 6 hours to read this book. I cannot waste 6 hours of my life reading this book aimed at third graders.
Here are my book by book reviews -
Blood Magic (Abnormals Underground #1)
This is a fun book with an actual original take on vampires that makes much more sense than the traditional explanations. The lead is a strong kick-a** heroine in the making. The supporting characters are excellent. The world-building is superb and the plot full of just the right amount of action, adventure and romance in the making. This is just a well written and fun novel, and definitely recommended.
Fire Magic (Abnormals Underground #2)
Fire Magic is a wonderful crazy wild ride of reading pleasure and a sure sign that this is going to end up being a set of books that I will be regularly re-reading. Wonderful chemistry between the lead character and her boyfriend is but one of the asodcts that make Holly Hook's characters really grab her readers. Added together with a plot full of adventure, thrills and laughter, all set in a wonderfully well developed world built by the author, and the result is really special book indeed. Highly recommended.
Death Magic (Abnormals Underground #3)
This is a wonderful book. It's been a blast following Alyssa as she moves more and more away from her desired "Normal" life and becomes so very much more. That continues in this book, with master manipulator Thoreau continuing to do whatever is needed to turn Alyssa so that ultimately he'll get what's needed to enslave the world. In the meantime Alyssa has to deal with Xavier and then shadow sickness that is tearing him up along with everything else that the incredible world Holly Hook created, with is vampires, shifters, mages, demons and other creatures, can throw at her and her friends. Luckily now that she's a vampire and capable of fire magic, she's already a darn powerful kick-a** heroine by the time of this book. She also has some awesome friends to support her, so little things Shadow Wraiths? Pshaw, just another nuisance to deal with. And dealing with all of this is something Alyssa and company does perfectly.
Bottom line: Simply a great addition ti the series. Great plot. Great characters. Great world-building. Great writing. Highly recommended.
Vile Magic (Abnormals Underground #4)
This is a really fun series, and Vile Magic is a great addition to it. Alyssa is growing in power ... and it's a bit scary where she seems to be heading. Meanwhile, as much as they're resisting it, Alyssa and Xavier are growing closer ... now if only they can hold back that whole round-up-and-enslave all abnormals things. Full of thrills, dealing with fears and irrational hatreds, growth and loss, and with a wonderful characters and really great - and well written - plot, this is a powerful book that's also loads of fun. Highly recommended.
Demon Magic (Abnormals Underground #5)
Ok, I've got a problem here, the kindle blurb is too good. It gives both everything you need to know without spoiling things and, in just two words ("as if"), gives you a real feeling for the heroine's snarky humor. Oh phooey. I'm going to simply skip all of that stuff and go to the bottom line. That bottom line is that this had been an absolutely superb series, filled with 5 star books, and this finally sadly (I say sadly as "finale" presumably means no more seeing these wonderful characters in action) is really the perfect ending. This book has everything you'd want, and more. Perfectly crafted, complex, layered characters and a wonderfully written plot that addresses everything I wanted to address. So goodbye Alyssa and Xavier, I will miss you. Goodbye too Thoreau, you fiend, I will sorta miss you too as you were a great evil character nemesis for our leads to deal with.
If you've been reading this series all along then I guarantee you will love this book. If you're new to this series then you're in for a real treat - but really start with book one and read book by book (they're all excellent, as mentioned) building up before turning to this one. The impact will be so much more powerful then.
"Highly recommended" is a weak shadow of how strongly I recommend this book and series.
The main character, who is a vampire, becomes engrossed in a war that has been going on for centuries; for mythical being like witches, vampires, werewolves, ect are quite known and are frowned upon. She soon teams up with someone, unbeknownst that she is bonded, whom she battles her affection for because he is very wishy washy in his feelings and actions. There is a greater plan than all of them and she must team up with others all the while not growing stronger, even though she must become stronger to overcome in the end. Filled with challenges and turmoil, the books have a great ending. Overall, well written.
