Five teenagers who've recently discovered they have magical powers and are living in the Seattle underground feel it's their responsibility to protect unsuspecting humans from otherworldly foes. Things are going well until Johnathan, their unofficial leader and the boy sixteen year old Paige is in love with, is bitten by a changeling - the venomous saliva causing him to metamorphose into a ravening beast with each full moon. Paige vows that, no matter the cost, she will find a way to cure Johnathan of the evil that has embedded itself in his soul. Johnathan's monthly transformation and daily personality roller coaster isn't the only problem they have to deal with. The Five are also gearing up to face their toughest and most dangerous enemy yet-a powerful and ruthless Warlock who will go to any means, including high school, to build his Dark Army.

Our customer reviews

Five teenagers develop magical powers and are drawn together, living in the Seattle underground. With this ability, they can see supernatural creatures which they vanquish in order to help the human race. Paige is a terrific heroin. Her parents let her down when they discover her new abilities. They accuse her of being evil. She leaves her home making her way to Seattle. Despite that traumatic experience, she endures and follows the path she is meant to travel. She is constantly growing and attempting to do the right thing. Johnathan is a natural leader. He struggles when he transformed into a lycanthrope. His reaction definitely makes his character seem very believable. Feeling responsible for Johnathanâ??s transformation Paige vows to discover a way to heal him. As a reader, it was easy to feel sympathy for the characters and what they withstand. I love that most of this story takes place in the Seattle Underground. I have gone on the underground tour a number of times. It is such a fascinating part of Seattleâ??s history and terrific setting for this book. I could totally picture every scene. It is such a creative idea using this as the backdrop. Five - Out of the Dark, is an original and exciting read. The characters are likeable; the setting is ingenious, and the plot is entertaining. I look forward to the next book, Five Out of the Pit. Complimentary copy provided by publisher in exchange for an honest more
