I Am Phantom (Book 1) by Sean Fletcher

Standard

My Thoughts: I was up til 4am reading this book!

10/10 Stars for the opening paragraph! I loved the main character, Drake Sinclair’s, humour and attitude, the first two sentences had me completely hooked. I have to quote them…. ‘My day really began the moment the men shot at me. To set the record straight, it wasn’t my usual idea of fun.’ (From Chapter One: In Which I Screw Up)

I Am Phantom is a fast-paced, well-written, action-packed sci-fi and fantasy, with a good dose of humour. Written in the first person, the reader joins Drake at the beginning of this story in his relatively calm and peaceful family life at home just before he finishes school, and where his only worries are asking girls to prom, the school bullies, oh, and the freaky super powers he obtained during puberty. Drake Sinclair knows he isn’t normal, jumping ridiculously high, super speed, strength and healing abilities are not normal, however he has done a good job at dealing with and hiding his abnormalities so far…. That is before a mysterious figure shows up and turns the school prom into a disaster.

Drake Sinclair then receives a strange admission letter from a college out of state, one with a letter that promises to give him answers about his powers. Desperate for answers Drake accepts, but little does he know, the answers are more complicated and more disturbing than he had ever imagined. Drake is forced to choose how he will use his powers, and whether or not he will use them for good or bad. Continue reading

Message Bearer (The Auran Chronicles Book 1) by M.S. Dobing

Standard

My Thoughts:

Great and lovable characters, fantastic world building and written well, Dobing has excelled in combining multiple mythologies with a little bit of science, creating a unique and intriguing world for urban fantasy lovers everywhere. Message Bearer is an action packed, epic, fantasy adventure.

The story centers around a young man called Seb, who has unfortunately wound up living on the streets. He doesn’t seem to mind this too much though, however, he has noticed that he is drawn to certain places and for some reason he favours the nighttime hours over the day (at first I thought he was a vampire, haha, i was wrong. – C.L).

Seb is settling down for the night (or early morning in his case) near an abandoned church, when he suddenly hears a terrified scream. Moments later an injured woman appears running straight for him, followed by a nightmarish creature. Continue reading
