    Undertow contains majority of the things I hated in Paranormal Novel Predictable plot instalove hot transfer guy common evil cheerleader suad a couple of slut shaming and a Mary Sue character I shouldn't be able to like this book by defaultBut damn I had a blast I like that the story doesn't just center around the very special rare MC Eila and her issues and drama The side characters exists not just to make the MC good in the readers eyes they had their own story and own spotlight which led the way to the best couple in this book for me Ana and Kian Ana reminds me so much of JO from the Soul Eaters Series and my favorite character MJ My eyes grew wide “Are you kidding me? Is that what grabbed me? Some sort of what? Zombie?” I sat there unable to move cemented by a newfound fear of the world around me “Thanks a lot MJ” hissed Ana coldly “Way to give the girl a heart attack”“I’m sorry alright but I mean what did she think grabbed her?” pleaded MJ desperate for a bit of forgiveness “The Little Mermaid? You have no idea how much I laughed out loud in this book That's why I think the blurb is kind of misleading this isn't in any way scary If anything I think this is a light fast paced urban paranormal read Nothing really creepy or scary not even the soul sucking demons Mortis There was also an attempt for mystery and thrill which is a fail for me since I was mostly able to predict what would happen after the first 12 of the book it did surprise me on some parts but not in an awesome blew me away way? But it was alright since I've never been a fan of big secret plot deviceAll of the factors I usually hate in my paranormal read that Undertow had was overshadowed by the hilarious MC awesome side characters intriguing creatures and swoon worthy romanceThank the Gods there aren't any love triangle here despite the instalove that kept me laughing and engaged the whole time And as long as the book kept my attention from the very first page without trying too hard I'm good I can't confidently recommend this book to my friends who has low tolerance on common cliche in a paranormal genre because I bet you'll end up hating it and hunt me lol But seriously though Undertow is than worth a try I'm definitely looking forward for the seuel I received a copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review thank you

    I should preface this by saying I am the author And normally I don't ever review my books or rate them but I saw other authors doing it and though What the heck?Undertow is the first novel I ever wrote though far from the first thing I've ever written I've been a professional writer for a long long time and honestly UNDERTOW was never meant to be than one or two scenesBasically the book was born because of some followers on Facebook who knew I was a journalist I can remember posting two scenes The opening prologue and the bonfire sceneI wrote them out of boredom As a journalist I'd never written fiction let alone dreamed up an entire story line characters world etc uite frankly it's HARDOnce those two scenes were up however I began getting constant reuests to finish the storyThe rest is history I hope you enjoy it

    Thanks to Netgalley for a copy of this novel in return for an honest review For reviews visit thisisjustabookblogtumblrcom If you've seen my updates while reading this novel I'm sure you won't be surprised to hear that I didn't enjoy this book It just wasn't very well written at all The narrative voice was irritating and the writing was just all wrong It wasn't like it was littered with grammatical errors or something though there were a few typos but it just didn't sound very good at all Not only that but there were a couple of times that the author cheated at narration If you're going to write in first person you can't just then give other people's reasonings for doing things which the narrator just has no way of knowing It's frustrating Also and this is of a style thing the author capitalised words to show emphasis This just looks really amateurish in comparison to italics in my opinion The actual mythology behind the paranormal aspect of the book was original and interesting but it wasn't very well explained I still haven't got a clue what a Lunaterra is or what they can do But at least it was creative I suppose However it wasn't until about half way through that this was actually revealed so I felt like the first half of the book was just too long Not much happens apart from a petty feud with a cheerleader for no apparent reason Which brings me on to my next problem; there were so many YA cliches that it made my head hurt Why are cheerleaders always depicted as pretty and popular and thin and bitchy? I just don't understand it Nikki was a stereotype pure and simple and that's just lazy and uncreative Not to mention that Nikki hated her for no reason at all and that just doesn't happen It's just childish More YA cliches you ask? Well how about irritating instalove? Check I'm sorry but you've had three conversations and suddenly he's your best friend and then suddenly your kissing and he's declaring his intention to die for you if need be? No reasons for their love was given; I'm not even sure if Raef has a personality If your main character falls in love with someone over the course of the novel then please please make it so I do to or at least can see why Otherwise it's unbelievable Next on our YA cliche list is the overprotective boyfriend Yuck Please please stop it Just please Why don't you empower your female characters instead? Why don't you make it a normal level of overprotectiveness instead of a creepy level? Speaking of creepy why did he get an extra seat put on his motorcycle for her the first day that they met? That's just weird That and the standing outside her window at night thing And now we get to YA cliches As similar to Twilight as you could possibly be without being fanfic? Check Claims social awkwardness but is actually liked by everyone and is proven to be outgoing and wonderful? Check Beautiful characters left right and centre? Check Tortured hero? Check Conveniently disappearing parentsparental figure? Check Stupid reason why the main characters can't have sexbe togetheretc? Check I could go on And on And on What I'm trying to say is that I'm tired of YA fiction that makes me want to rip off my skin as I'm reading it I'm tired of unhealthy relationships and whiny main characters and references to Twilight within the novel if you're going to base your novel off of the style of someone else's at least don't mention them within the novel Okay I'm sorry I'm done I apologise about how horrible this review is It's not an attack on this particular author but just a result of my frustration with this genre and this novel happens to have pushed me over the edge It's actually got a lot of good reviews so far on goodreads so maybe I'm just strange?

    What an amazing and absorbing read The details and descriptions from KR Conway blew me away and I was sucked into this book in no time It's a really great beginning to a series It has that classic paranormal romance feel without seeming like all of the other books Undertow definitely stands out in the sea of YA paranormals I really connected with these characters They seemed authentic and I could relate to different parts of all of them Characters are always a big deal for me so that was a relief There are different layers to the characters and I loved getting to know and about them as the story progressed It definitely kept my attention I had no idea what to expect whenever I started Undertow It can always be hit or miss with me and YA paranormal romance But wow This author absolutely blew me away If you're a YA paranormal fan you simply have to read UndertowI received this book for free in exchange for an honest review with no compensation


  6. Aly Aly says:

    I loved the concept for this book The creatures weren't anything I've seen before and I enjoyed learning about them and all the different kinds of magic that exist in this world Eila is a cute character she's a good friend and tries to stand up for others She can be a bit impulsive and make rash decisions but she's young and it's fun to watch her figure things out I loved the friendships in this especially MJ He's adorable and would do anything for anyone I loved the twists in this and I'm really looking forward to reading the rest of the series Thank you to NetGalley and Wicked Whale Publishing for the copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion

    I love this cover The simplicity is perfect yet it still does a good job of giving us the feel of the book kind of mysterious with a little spunk This is the story of a girl Eila who inherits a mansion on the coast She moves before her senior year of high school and finds a lot of interesting friends who help her as she begins to unearth dangerous family secrets Raef is new to the school too and seems to be watching out for her but Eila is eual parts afraid of and drawn to himEila is analright character I never connected strongly with her At first she seemed like an old soul to me too smart to get caught up in the drama of high school and content to be alone While not a leader she seemed pretty confident in herself As the story goes on she talks about forcing herself to be confident to step up Maybe she needed a push to become a leader but I don't think she was ever the timid flower she seemed to see herself as and tried to convince us she was It seemed she was someone who never cared what people thought until this group came along that she wanted to help to impress to be a part of I loved watching her step up and commit to whatever needed to be done and how she never apologized for how she felt There were plenty of moments she redeemed herself and in the end I liked her but never loved herRaef really was the best character in this book He was a perfect blend of vulnerability and strength He never came off as creepy but he was definitely watching over Eila from the start He also trusted Eila and never pushed her into any kind of danger but would willingly follow when she made necessary risks He was a great YA male lead the kind girls should swoon overThe premise of this story is really interesting with Eila being a person gifted with ability to kill fallen angels who live off of the souls of humans We also have shape shifters and a character who can read and influence emotions It was a lot to take in I'm torn between wishing we could have learned about the soul feeders and the feud that has developed between the two races and interest in the other paranormal beings Since this is book one in the series I suppose I'll be getting of bothThe writing here is great with nice flow varying sentence lengths and structures strong dialogue and interesting subplots If you like the paranormal and sensitive yet powerful guys this is a winner The prologue kind of throws you right into everything so just hang in there it will all make sense eventually For another Raef fix I'll soon be reading book two ;Also reviewed

    35 stars I have mixed feelings about this book For the most part I found that I really liked it However there were some things that I came across particularly around the halfway point that entirely ruined the way I saw itThe good notes I think the concept was really interesting I liked that this book wasn't about your typical vampire or werewolves or witches and I really enjoyed reading as Eila found out about who she is and how she came to be I thought the book flowed well and I liked that the book kept us in enough suspense but not dragged out to where it'll was irritating And I liked that it wasn't too predictable but it wasn't too far fetched that you were left thinking where the heck did that come fromThe flip side First of all I just have to say I was really irked when I got halfway through the book and Raef starting explaining what he was One of the things I liked about this book was it had a uniue concept But then I started finding out what Raef's powers and limitations were and that just ruined the entire book for me Why go through the trouble of creating a uniue create and establish a whole elaborate plot on what they are only to have the cliche side effects of THAT creature From the animals which doesn't even make sense view spoilerThey're soul stealers not blood suckers Wouldn't they need souls to sustain themselves so reuiring blood doesn't really fit into it And then animal blood you'd have to go through the whole concept of whether they have souls I don't buy it hide spoiler
