The Urbanboys Discovery of the Five Senses by K.N. Smith


Book Description:

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!

My Thoughts:

This was a really cool book to read!  This is the first book I've read by this author, but it won't be the last. I really liked the small town described in this book (I'm a small town girl myself).  Getting the powers the way the boys did wasn't anything surprising, but almost a expected thing if you read this type of book.

I think descriptions is one of the best things this author does.  When a scene or person was described, I could see them in my mind without issue.  I was happy that the main characters here were boys because there aren't enough like this that I can share with my boys and know they will enjoy it.  I am happy to share this one with family and friends while I wait for the next book.

Three Simple Steps to Wizarding Domination by

Book Description:

Three Simple Steps to Wizarding Domination

Step One: Find the books stolen from the magical library
Step Two: Steal back the books and bring them to New York
Step Three: Declare wizarding domination

I feel like this is a pretty solid plan.

I'm probably wrong...

My Thoughts:

We are completely loving this series.  This one was a really good one.  From Bryant thinking Elizabeth and he are done to her being caught in the middle of more issues that the three guys are determined to help her out of to finding the books.  I just love how these four keep getting themselves into one thing after another.

I'm really ready for the last book and to see what happens next.  There are lots of questions I have that need answered!  I enjoyed how much more Bryant's parents were getting involved in things even if his dad totally isn't ok with it.  There is just so much to love and enjoy about this series!
