The Supernaturalist.

In complex emotions, people can easily make decisions/assumptions that can ultimately have unintended consequences.
This book pulled me in with the idea of doing an unknown good versus an unknown enemy and I can appreciate the nearly devestating truth.

A boy in a tragic accident witnesses supernatural animals that feed off the life force of those mortally injured.  Now given this new perception on death and pain, he joins up with a small gang of kids, determined to fight this unknown and invisible enemy.

I read this in high school, and despite the elementary reading level, I still enjoyed the basic concepts.

The Supernaturalist? I'm not really sure. Perhaps it was the fact that it was Science Fiction that I didn't really like it. I wasn't bored the whole time, no. Yet, I also wasn't thrilled the whole time. The beginning is boring, the end is exciting. It's pretty balanced. However, because it was Science Fiction, it did have many unexpected ideas I would have never imagined. This however, was, in my opinion, an average book.

The Supernaturalist is a very interesting futuristic story from a great author. Cosmo Hill lives in the Clarissa Frayne Institute for Parentally Challenged Boys, which basically means hes an orphan. The living conditions are brutal. The boys are forced to have products tested on them, which can result in sores and sicknesses. They are practically not treated like humans.

Somehow, Cosmo escapes, only to nearly die and have his life partially sucked away by strange blue creatures called Parasites. He is saved by a small group or people, who call themselves Supernaturalists, and starts to work with them. They make it their job to destroy the Parasites because they believe the Parasites suck the life and energy out of people.

But in order to destroy them from where they come from, Cosmo has to go back to the Clarissa Frayne Institute for Parentally Challenged Boys. He and his new friends are captured, and their enemies provide a new perspective on the Parasites that changes everything.

I thought this book was only okay. I really enjoyed the Artemis Fowl series, and since this was by the same author, I expected something more. The story was unique, but it didnt keep me interested for a long time. If there were a sequel to come out, I would not go rushing out to buy it.
