Author: K.r. Conway

Publication Date: October 1, 2013

MY Rating: 5/5 stars (A)
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.
I received Undertow from Patchwork Press via netgalley in exchange with an honest review.
Just when I thought that there could not be anymore original and interesting Supernatural YA Novels, K.R. Conway seemed to prove me wrong with UnderTow, a great start of a mind blowing series.
First thing First, I googled the meaning of UNDERTOW which is : A Strong Current
After finishing the book, I think that the title pretty much describes the series very well because , what does the strong current do? chaos, disasters,loss, then eventually becoming stronger and perhaps recovery.
The Prologue is very captivating, you only need to read a few pages to get hooked.
Although after the prologue the intensity slowed down a bit, I was not able to stop reading due to the anticipation of wanting to know what happens next and falling in love with all of the characters
I could almost relate to all of the main characters. There were a lot of, OMG this is exactly how I feel moments !

The Book is packed with adventure,danger, along with the elements of sacrifice,love,friendship, and betrayal. Yet, I ended it needing more, hence the main issue has not been resolved yet.
This is definitely going to be added to my favorite series list , and I can't wait to read the next one.
I give this book 5/5 stars and an A according to my own rating scale !
