Dormant (The Dormant Series, #1) Reviews
I read the short story first and couldn't wait to read the book. It totally lived up to my expectations and then some!I don't read a ton of fantasy -- I tend to lean toward realistic fiction. The great thing about Dormant is that Olivia's feet-dragging return to her deceased mother's extended family, and the distance her secret ability creates from her regular life, has all the elements I look for in good realistic fiction. The addition of mind reading, traveling in stealth mode, and a Mongolian Death Worm lurking in the tunnels underneath the city doesn't take away from that. It adds to it.I love a book that helps me read outside my usual genre, and Dormant is one of the best examples of this that I can think of. My only complaint is that I have to wait for Book 2 to find out what happens to Olivia, her cousins, and Ben Holloway.
Fans of the TV show Heroes, the X-men comics and young readers new t the genre will delight in this fresh take on a "super-normal" (love that phrase McLennan coined!) teen coming to terms with her powers while also facing many of the typical teen situations. Lots of fun!
Even though Olivia wants to reject her supernormal heritage, you won't be able to resist the urge to fall in love with this story. Dormant is a captivating adventure sure to entertain YA Urban Fantasy and Superhero fans.
Dormant is a story with an interesting beginning. A bank robbery goes very wrong and Olivia learns something about herself that she wished she’d kept buried in the past. It’s a great fantasy read, fast and furious. If you like your super heroes a little reluctant, you’ll love this book. I did.
started the book. didnt finish. set in portland which was great but the storyline was not so great.
A good YA book with 2 more books yet to come in the trilogy. Both boys and girls that like action will like it. I expect my 11 year old son will like it as it's a little along the lines of an Avenger type movie.
Love it! Great coming of age story. Makes me realize how We're each designed with "super" powers. We have the power to summons the best life if we dare to believe!
