Stuck in a reading rut? Why not try out a new teen series? Maybe you are already a fan...Good News!! New books in The Unraveling series by Elizabeth Norris and the Sweet Trilogy by Wendy Higgins recently came out, and were reviewed by Agincourt Branch YAG member Mariya:
Unbreakable by Elizabeth NorrisThe book Unbreakable was amazing. The first book Unraveling was a good book, but when compared to Unbreakable there was no competition. Unbreakable was filled with action, romance, suspense, and science fiction. Ben and Janelle in the first book are separated after they save 2 colliding universes/worlds. When Ben is accused of trafficking humans and selling them on different earths and someone Janelle cares about is taken, Janelle decides to track down the source of the problem. While reading the book i became so enthralled by book that it made me start to feel what the characters were feeling. I felt their sadness, happiness, joy, and anguish. It was hard to put the book down. While reading this book, it will feel like watching a movie because the author describes the situations in so much detail. The romance between Janelle and Ben was the best part of the story. They were so in love with each other and they fight every time to get back together when they become separated.
Sweet Peril by Wendy Higgins
This book is great. In this book you can't help but fall in love with characters. This book is also buzzing with romance. Anna and Kaidan are in love but its hard to be together when their lives can be at stake. When Anna gets the prophecy from an angel saying that the nephilium's(kids of the demons) can be their own person and they can be free, Anna has to secretly get allies that will help her with the huge battle that is to come. In this book, friendship and bonds between are made. I love how this book portrays the nephilium as "evil", when really they are just trying to be on the good graces of their demon parents. Sweet Peril shows a great deal about temptation and this is what most teens can relate to. Anna is the daughter of the devil substance abuse, so she has to fight off the temptation of drinking and especially drugs. All in all i think this book was worth the read.
