Supernatural Freak - Louisa Klein
Release Date - August 9th 2012
Age Group - Young Adult
Overall - 4.5/5

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.

If you love books with tons of supernatural creatures, this is the book for you. I was instantly pulled in within the first few pages of this book with action. Robyn has ties to all kinds of supernatural beings, so I can see how they decided on the title Supernatural Freak. Werewolves, Ghosts, Genies, Faries, and that's just within the first few chapters!

Supernatural Freak is so well written that it keeps you hanging on every second. I found myself wanting to know what was going to happen next because there was so much suspense in the plot that I needed to keep reading. Robyn gets herself into to all kinds of sticky situations and seeing how she gets herself out of them is quite entertaining. Thanks to the help of her friends, I'm sure Robyn would be able to work through anything.

Supernatural Freak definitely gets my recommendation to any reader looking for a good supernatural book to read. A supernatural packed book that keeps you hooked from page one, if you haven't already checked this book out, it is available on amazon and I say give it a read.
