The title of this book is very fitting. That is exactly what it is about, a supernatural freak. The main character is Robyn. She has abilities that no human has, and abilities that many people that do have supernatural abilities don’t have, and that makes her a target.
Many strange things happen around her that she has no explanation for, so she enlists the help of her wizard and witch friends, and also the ghost that conveniently lives in her attic.
This book is packed with action, but is also packed with tons of humor and wit, with a dash of romance... just a dash!
I find books a lot more enjoyable to read when there are good characters. That was the case with this one. I enjoyed all of the characters. They all had their own unique personalities, and they meshed well together to make this book exciting to read. You never knew what was going to come out of their mouths next.
Also, I wish I had an awesome ghost that lived in my attic.
5/5 This was thoroughly enjoyable. It was hilarious, it was suspenseful, and it was full of action! AND the characters were awesome!

The end of this book is TERRIBL…….Y SUSPENSEFUL!
My jaw dropped as I read the last line.
If you like cliff hangers, don’t even read the rest of this review, just go directly to the link and purchase this book! I promise, you won’t regret it!
But I shall continue this… even though the top part should convince you right away to get it.
This book is geared toward young adults and features romance, family drama (that can be very relatable to some), and….. aliens again? Common theme here in February I see!
Actually, this book was fun to read after the last one I had read because they were both so DIFFERENT! It was kinda cool to compare the way the “others” were portrayed.
Anyways, the main character is Capella Maggie Hart. She meets the new kid in town, Alex, and there is a bond between them right away. One that neither of them could have possibly predicted the outcome of.
Maggie’s best friend has instant interest and is lusting over Alex. But he wants nothing from her. He is more interested in Maggie, quite to her surprise.
As they grow closer, the truth about who Alex really is comes out, and the rest of the book is a wild adventure involving Hunters, Pods, and strange guns.
5/5 stars The character development was great. I grew super attached to them, and the story was just as good!

This novel by Darren Rogers has a little bit of everything. Romance, violence, drama, and …… aliens?
When I began this novel the first thing I noticed was how long it was! But, once I began reading on, that was the furthest thing from my mind.
Alien Tears is centered (for the most part) around an individual named Mark. Mark seems like a typical teenage boy and starts falling heavily for a young lady named Tonya.
There is more to Mark than what you may think.
- - -
The aliens begin taking over Earth after one of their own is killed off by the government.
No one knows how to react, the president resigns, and people are dying by the bunches. The whole world is in chaos.
Would you know how to survive an alien invasion?
All they wanted was to make society better, but society rebelled and brought destruction upon themselves.
This novel reminded me almost of a modern day War of the Worlds.
It was an intense journey. One of happiness, sadness, and some… intimate moments as well.
4/5 stars There were a few grammatical errors that were distracting at times, but if you look past that (there may be a revised version out now), the story is great and will keep you hanging on until the end!
Read ahead for spoilers
