Review: Supernatural Freak by Louisa Klein

Supernatural Freak by Louisa Klein
*mild language, some innuendo (no sex)
Supernatural freakWhen paranormal expert Robyn Wise is offered an outrageous sum of money to cure a boy who is turning into a dead tree, she’s very sceptical. A politician ready to pay that much to make his son stop growing branches instead of hair? Come on! She’s more likely to be abducted by aliens. This is a trap. Or much worse. And, of course, it’s much worse.
The child is turning into a dark portal, created by a powerful entity determined to absorb Fairyland’s power. This means that not only queen Titania and her court are in danger, but the very balance of the magic fluxes.
She’d rather stick a pencil in her own eye, but to learn how to destroy the portal, she has to sneak into the Wizardry Council, a place full of wizards who are hiding something—though it’s certainly not their dislike of Robyn.
There, she discovers a secret that could help to overthrow Fairyland’s enemies for good, a secret that puts her in the midst of an ancient and deadly war, and not as a bystander, but as the main target.
An action-packed yet romantic urban fantasy where Harry Potter meets Nancy Drew meets The Dresden Files, meets Darkest Powers meets Buffy The Vampire Slayer!

My review:  Supernatural Freak by Louisa Klein 
3 1/2 Stars 
Interesting story!  I had no idea where the story was going to go next.  Starts out strong right into action with a werewolf chase of Robyn the main character. The book moves pretty fast paced with more chases, fights, magic. 
There is ghosts, wizards, demons, shamon, evil monsters, fairies are just some of the characters you will find in the story.
There is swearing in the book.  I am tired of reading F bombs.
The names bothered me. Too much general names. For example the uncle almost always calls her niece. Robin's roommates are the geeks. ghost.
Robyn Wise is a paranormal with some unique skills.  She is asked to help a boy who is turning into a tree.  She thinks it is a joke or a trap because someone is trying to kill her.
I could see this book being the start to a new series because she has only found a few of the good guys there are more out there she needs to find.  If she does I would like to read the book.
I was offered this book free in exchange for a honest review of Supernatural Freak.
