Weaver (The Weaver Saga) by John Abramowitz

Demons, secret societies, and unlawful genetic manipulation join forces to change how you think about paranormal thrillers in this book!

Weaver is 1 part science fiction, 1 part paranormal fantasy, and a whole lot of fun!

Alex is a normal teenage girl with good friends, a doting father, and a nice (if a little overbearing) mother. Then, one nightmare the night before the first day of her 10th grade year turns everything inside out.

John Abramowitz has crafted a wonderful story that is truly a page turner. Each page presents a new part of the puzzle. Just what is the Wells Society? Who are the Runaways and whose side are they on? How far will Agents McBain and Hall of the FBI go to help Alex?

Weaver is obviously meant to be the first book in a new series. While many Book Ones tend to meander as new characters are introduced, Mr. Abramowitz has done an excellent job of pacing both story and character development so that the two are intertwined. There is no extra fluff in Weaver, each and every page advances the story and our relationship with the characters. I hope that subsequent titles can keep up the pace!

Other than a few curse words, I would have no problem with recommending this book to young adults. At the same time, there is enough action to keep paranormal thriller fans engaged as well.

Over all a great first title in what I hope will be an excellent series!

Fifteen-year old Alex Cronlord just met the boy of her dreams. Literally. Unfortunately, the dream involved him killing her. When she encounters him at her school the next morning, Alex understandably freaks out – and her mother’s bizarre behavior only makes it worse. What Alex doesn’t realize is that she can see the future – which will get her into a whole lot of trouble.

Across town, FBI Agent Moira McBain and her partner Andy Hall investigate a series of house burnings in Dallas, Texas. When a clue leads them to the Cronlords, Moira discovers a disturbing link between Alex’s family and her own – which opens an old wound Moira has spent years trying to ignore.

Something is rotten in Dallas, Texas – something involving a secret society, children with extraordinary powers, and human-looking creatures who might literally be out of this world ….

Welcome to a different kind of world-wide web.
