Undertow Series by K.R. Conway

Undertow by K.R. Conway
Undertow #1

Undertow is a great addition to the paranormal genre and a solid start to the Undertow series.  With a unique plot, concrete characters and a twist on the paranormal YA

books out there Undertow is a front runner in the highly completive genre. Great twist and turn will have readers sucked in and quickly turning pages. 

This book was really good.  I loved the characters, plot, and writing style of the author.  The plot lines were one of a kind making me like this book so much more than all the rest of this redundant genre.  This book started a little slow, but quickly picked up the pace.  With the hint of mystery, this book will be on my “must follow this series” list.  Before I knew it the book was over; leaving me wanting more.  I can’t wait for book two in this series. 


Luckless Eila is unknowingly the last of her kind: Rare. Gifted. Breakable. Stunning Raef is her kind's historic enemy: Soulless. Lethal. Lost. A legendary death 160 years before would set their lives to collide, forcing a beautiful killer to become a savior, a simple wallflower to become a warrior, and ruthless destiny to become a death sentence.

Eila Walker knows luck is not a friend, so she is downright shocked to inherit a million-dollar Cape Cod home. And yeah, her new town isn't perfect: the cheerleaders are heinous clones, the local undertow can kill ya, and her Great Grams was supposedly fried by lightning in the harbor square. Still, Eila is hopeful her luckless days are in the past . . . until history decides to repeat itself.

When drool-worthy Raef O’Reilly becomes her friendly, yet weirdly protective shadow, Eila thinks life is pretty darn perfect – until she is hauled beneath the waves by an unnatural undertow. Revealing coal-black eyes and iron-like strength as he rescues her, Raef can no longer hide what he is . . . or what she can do. Eila, last of her kind, can supposedly channel the power of human souls, while Raef is more adept at stealing them. Even worse, the legend about her ancestor isn't such a myth, since Eila’s grandmother was one kick-butt warrior until her lightning-like power backfired. A power that is written all over Eila's DNA.

Determined to stay one step ahead of a dangerous clan that is hunting her, Raef, along with three unlikely allies, will do all they can to protect her. But as hidden pieces of their brutal histories unravel, Eila begins to understand just what went down in the harbor square. She soon realizes that following in her grandmother’s fearless footsteps may be the only way to save those she loves . . . including Raef.

BOOK 1 in the UNDERTOW Series.

BOOK 2 (STORM FRONT) will be out early summer 2014.
