What would you do if you stumbled into an underground city while on vacation? That is just part of the challenge Will and Natalie Duncan face when they go on a family vacation inNorway.
The Secret Power Of Beneath is the story of a young man and his discovery and stay in an underground city located in the mountains inNorwaycalled Bergsland.
Bergsland is a city filled with advancements and technology never seen on the outside. It is also home to the secret of a new method of powering that technology. The city is ruled by a counsel and president that's primary focus is keeping the secret of that power source.
My favorite character in The Secret Power of Beneath is definitely Anna. She is a resident of Bergsland, but she bonds very quickly with Will and Natalie. What really impressed me about this young woman is her loyalty to her friends and her strength even through sever diversity.
I really enjoyed The Secret Power of Beneath. The characters are well developed and the story moves along at a great pace. The scenes are well described and vivid.
I am definitely looking forward to more from Frank Acland.
Unfortunately the book was badly laid out making it appear very amateurish and the poor proofreading made it look as though it was done by computer translation from another language. I would have awarded the book 5* but deducted one for the formatting and one for the poor proofreading and added one for no sex and swearing. I recently read an e-book called "Format your Print Book with Createspace" which made me go to my bookshelf and look at books with a different understanding of how they were put together. If the author reads a similar book he could put a professional polish onto his work and by better proofreading make it into a 5* publication that it deserves to be.
I really enjoyed the characters of Will and Natalie. Their defiance of a world they never knew existed, and never wanted to be captive in, is great. I imagine my reactions would be similar to those of the teens as everything they ever knew is taken from them. The rules and regulations of the new world were really interesting to read about, but I couldn't help but feel for Will and Natalie as the restrictions put upon them were quite ridiculous--for a nation so advanced, their thought process was a little backwards, and Acland superbly shows how extreme paranoia and backward thinking can very quickly turn into a dictatorship.
This would be a five star novel, in my opinion, except for the amount of grammatical errors within the novel. I really enjoyed the storyline and I was drawn into it from the very beginning, but the excessive grammatical errors really bogged me down as I read. The story is there, and it is awesome--I think this would even make a really cool movie--but the book needs to be edited so that it flows non-stop. With more editing and a release of a second edition, this novel will be gold. Four stars.
The ending too is anything but disappointing.
I really recommend it! Especially if English is not your mother tongue and you would practise the language, you will easily find yourself immerse in this parallel world and will flow to the end without effort!
