I don't want to write too much as I don't want to spoil anything, but if you like YA and Fantasy/Sci-fi I think you'll really appreciate this book. It is hard to believe it is the author's debut novel! I hope she does come out with another soon. Happy reading!!
A phenomenal debut I feel grateful to have read. Extra|Ordinary had me hooked from the beginning, with a mysterious opening that lead you to believe the story was heading one way, before it completely turned everything around. Continuous twists kept me on my toes and knowing that the author was one step ahead any theory I had. It’s safe to say that Danielle K. Girl is a wonderfully talented writer.
The characters had me invested in their story very early on, with Ryder being a strong-willed but still anxious girl who was looking for reasons as to what made her different. When the answer threw her into a different world, I enjoyed seeing her confidence grow as she quickly adjusted and learned her place in it. The sci-fi elements were done well, in that they weren’t so ‘out there’ a new reader of it, like me, would feel out of their depth. Yet they were also detailed enough to be immersive.
In the end, I have to recommend Extra|Ordinary and hope that others enjoy the book as much as I have! Meanwhile, I’ll be eagerly waiting for the sequel.
Ryder Carlsson has always suspected that she was different. Strange voices and ghostly images have haunted her for most of her Life. In order to prove that the things that haunt her are real and not something much scarier, like losing her sanity, Ryder and her two best friends, Sophie and Christian, set-up camp at Clarendon House to do some ghost hunting. Immediately the three teens are met with someone that’s not from our world and are thrust into an adventure of life and death in order to help save this oddly charming alien and her world.
The world that the author has created is unique and gripping. With metallic-like armor that liquefies to enable super powers of strength and the ability to fly, hideously terrifying villains that morph from human form to skeletal monsters and can kill with a single stroke of their venomous talons, giant flying beats, and of course a super cool space ship. Oh, and did I mention the “out of this world” function to syphon auras from every living thing around?
There’s also the inner-dynamics and hierarchy of the alien universe and how it pertains to humans, but more importantly how it personally relates to Ryder and the secrets that the people who she has trusted and considered to be family have kept from her, her entire life.
Sci-fi isn’t usually my go-to genre, but Danielle K. Girl is able to mash sci-fi with enough humanity to make it enjoyable for even the non sci-fi fan. Ryder and her friends are so well written that you are able to feel their everyday teenage angst amidst the alien adventure that they're thrown into. Ryder has anxiety about her own sanity as well as being a lonely teenager with absentee parents. Thankfully Sophie is always there to pick up her bestie with her sometimes goofy but always welcomed “words of wisdom” and never wavers in her belief of Ryder. Christian, on the other hand, is more skeptical and seems to be dealing with a lot of his own questions about life.
I definitely plan to follow this author and this series. A great read for teens and adults alike.
