When paranormal expert Robyn Wise is offered an outrageous sum of money to cure a boy who is turning into a dead tree, she's very sceptical. A politician ready to pay that much to make his son stop growing branches instead of hair? Come on! She's more likely to be abducted by aliens. This is a trap. Or much worse. And, of course, it's much worse.
The child is turning into a dark portal, created by a powerful entity determined to absorb Fairyland's power. This means that not only queen Titania and her court are in danger, but the very balance of the magic fluxes.
Robyn'd rather stick a pencil in her own eye but, to learn how to destroy the portal, she has to sneak into the Wizardry Council, a place full of wizards who are hiding something—though it’s certainly not their dislike of her.
There, she discovers a terrible secret that could help to overthrow Fairyland's enemies for good, but puts her in the midst of an ancient and deadly war, and not as a bystander, but as the main target.
Supernatural Freak is an amazing story!
Robyn has always been different, she has abilities that she can't explain, and these abilities could get her hurt. With no way to know just why she is different she has done her best in life to surround herself with only a select few of trusted friends and segregate herself from the world.
One day while out on a job, she finds that she can't catch a break and something is definitely "off". When Robyn learns just why she is different she is forced to do the unthinkable to protect those she loves.
I was a little thrown off by the jumping at first, but once you get into the story you are truly immersed!
I would have loved to have a little more consistency in the story line, I felt that the front was a tad disjunct. I found that I did have to re-read a few parts in order to grasp everything that happened. The story is complex and a little more lead in would take you on an epic journey.
The theme and plot are already epic! I loved the concept, it was a fresh take on many ideas that are already out there and it was amazing to read something different. Overall, I really liked the book!
There is violence in the book, so I do suggest this for a more mature audience.
