#Review: The Abducted by J.T. Lewis #YA #paranormalmystery
It was just a party.
There were six of them, three guys and three girls enjoying the cool fall evening. Good friends, they had been drawn together in high school like pieces of steel to a magnet. Considered nerds by many in their school, all of them were near the top of their class and seemed destined for big things.
But something in the sky that night changed their lives forever!
Based on actual events...maybe...
This book is a short YA story meant to be a prequel for a series I have not read. This makes no difference to me because I was hooked from the very first words in the book.
To me alien abduction is a fascinating subject, one that certainly would not be discussed among the masses but maybe in close friendship with someone. In this book, several close friends are just barely in high school and encounter a strange event that makes them not only lose time but gets them in a whole lot of trouble. It also gives them strange powers.
The premise of this story runs the gamut of well-known cheezy abduction stories to possibilities of something out there. The author even includes the characteristics of the aliens as long bodies, big heads, and large black eyes. Yes, I have heard that before but I had to smile when I read it.
I like how the author also weaved a budding romance and strong friendships that have lasted in the tests of time and abduction. What a way to have a friendship! He also introduced scientific studies that seemingly come out of the latest sci-fi movie. I love it!
This story is directed at young adults but I feel that adults would like it too. I did! It is a mere 40 pages and worth the read if nothing more than to put a smile on your face and wonder, "Are We Alone?"
Now I have to read the series. I give this 4 alien stars!
