The Urban Boys: Discovery of the Five Senses is an action-adventure story about five teen boys who are mysteriously exposed to a foreign energy source that gives them extremely heightened senses. Sight, sound, touch, taste, and smell become hypersensitive gifts that forever change the world. The story offers young and mature readers central themes of loyalty, responsibility, honesty, fear, and triumph, which become artfully integrated with cinematic-level action and high drama. The story twists, turns, and grinds through elements of paranormal and action-adventure in a diverse, exciting, edge-of-your-seat narrative.
Overview: The story’s small town of Danville Heights, a carefully crafted universe, contrasts with the dark, gloomy town of Sandry Lake, where evil abounds. Upon the boys’ mysterious incident with the energy source, they’re instinctively called to Sandry Lake to root out evil. Their senses guide them each time. However, secrecy about their mission, furious battles with evil thugs, extreme fatigue, and stress and pressure soon overwhelm the boys, but they must find a way to embrace their fate. A lurking, Dark Stranger seems to know their plight, and a strikingly beautiful, fearless girl lends way to heightened confusion. Shocking details about these two characters, and the evil antagonist, the dreaded Druth, twist and grind the story even further. Despite tension and fierce battles, will the boys hold it together long enough to fulfill their destiny? Intriguing, intelligent, and full of action, The Urban Boys: Discovery of the Five Senses offers a memorable, emotion-packed, thrilling ride for young and mature readers alike!

In an Oyster Shell – A unique paranormal teenage read that has an almost fable-like feel.

The Pearls – This book had an interesting premise that was executed satisfactorily. The setting was nice. I thought there was appropriate symbolism between the setting of the two cities. The story had great parallels.

It’s always a tricky thing to juggle multiple points of view. I feel like the author pulled it off. There was so much diversity in the different points of view. It added to the distinctiveness of this read.

Overall, the book had a morality that seems to be lost in most modern day storytelling. After I finished reading the book I had a distinguished feeling of hope.

The Sand –  The books tone was flat all the way through though consistent, made the book less than enjoyable.

3 Pearls!
