Imagine if the oh so sweet looking and decent appearances boy band One Direction was really a bunch of vicious, blood-sucking vampires? Sherry Wood has imagined something just like that. In her novel. Bad Direction is a boy band from Britian. They are living it up and living it large their last night in London before going on an American Tour which includes a Cruise Ship stop. They are on the verge however of losing control as their behavior turns more dangerous and rebellious.
On the other side of the story is Ashley, who is sixteen and has won tickets to the ‘Jammy Party’ on the cruise ship and her mother Leslie,who is crazy busy with her work, a dead person, and trying to cope with the end of her marriage.

Relentless by Karen Lynch
I connected immediately with the protagonist Sara Grey. The author wrote a vivid, realistic character in a fantasy/paranormal. She done an exceptional job.
With her father’s murder haunting her, always wondering who or what killed him, her world is opened to the realms most choose to ignore. She has supernatural power of healing and befriends many among other ‘races’ but it soon leads her to trouble.

Sara is a strong lead character with many flaws. This is what I loved about her. She is headstrong, refuses to be a weak little girl who lets everyone else solve her problems for her. She wants to protect those she loves but she also does so sometimes putting them and herself in risk. A very humane thing! Continue reading
