Review: Connor

Connor by Dormaine G

Rave Reviews Book Club Featured Selection for April 2014
Genre: Young Adult Urban Fantasy Reviewed by Anita Cross

Connor is the first book from Dormaine G, as well as the first book in the series. Written in the first person, this coming-of-age story is about a typical teenage girl who discovers she’s not so typical after all.

The first part of the book, where we meet Connor, her family and her friends is well done. Connor’s sarcastic outlook on the world around her is highly entertaining. The second part of the book deals with the teens’ unusual abilities, and throws them into dangerous situations. They are given a lot of information and, before they have time to absorb it, find themselves battling evil forces.

After the big climactic scene, the book ends rather abruptly. It felt like there should have been a bit more.

Like many other first books of self-published authors, this book had technical issues that a good editor would have caught. In spite of that, I enjoyed this book for the most part. I look forward to seeing how this talented author grows in her craft.
