The Urban Boys: Discovery of the Five Senses by K.N. Smith
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
"The Urban Boys: Discovery of Five Senses” by K.N. Smith is a well written young adult paranormal novel. I have to say I liked that the boys did not get some sort of amazing, but too out there super power. Instead they each got heightened senses; I personally found this aspect interesting as it kept the book somewhat realistic and almost theoretically possible. I found the prologue to be confusing as it took place 20 years previously and it took a while for the prologue to make any sense to me. I liked how the author worked to develop all of the characters equally there was never a point where I felt like on some of the characters were fleshed out; I really could not pick a favorite character I liked Jordan, Rhee, Kinsu, Chase, and Alex all equally. I greatly enjoyed the action oriented story line and the fast pace that came with it. At the beginning I was concerned that this was going to be one of those slow paced books the describe everything in way too much detail, but the author moved the story line along at a fast and steady pace which kept me interesting in both the plot and the characters. The book truly exemplifies a battle between good and evil.
