Review - Supernatural Freak

 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.
My review:
This was a very entertaining book that had me hooked right away.  Robyn is an interesting character.  She gets thrown into a job trying to find a lost child that ends up being the key to opening a portal.  Of course this has to be stopped and she has literary everything thrown at her along the way.  But its so well done you dont even notice.  You just keep reading to see what happens next and how it is solved.
The characters from Robyn, her uncle, the ghost who lives in her house, her roommates and even her dog are so well constructed with multiple aspects to them that they are a great group to read about.   She is lucky enough to even have resourceful and loyal friends.  

You have to read the book to find out what all makes Robyn special in this supernatural world and of course to find out if she finds the boy and keeps the portal from opening.  But if you love paranormal stories you should not miss this one.  I am looking forward to what happens next.  And I hope it contains an advancement between Robyn and a certain unconventional wizard.   You will have to read the story to find out more!
