Terribly awesome? Awesomely terrible?

I don't really know what to think.

The writing is very consistent. Professional grade in most aspects. No proof reading flaws to mention. The plot is...umm.

It's a strange moisture of magic and tech in a rebuilt post apocalyptic world. Not deserts and wastelands apocalypse, but magic storms and some kind of virus. Neither of which are problems for the characters.

Most of the action takes place at an asylum for the magically gifted. A cyborg dog plays a role, as

This is going to be a hard book for me to review because I've seen it in its previous form. Yes, this is another book by someone from WriteOn.

Backstory/How I came to know about Wild Thing. Since I'm on a writing site, I do try to give feedback. Normally, though, I give feedback for the first chapter, but if the book is really good, I continue. I don't continue reading most books that I read. But, Wild Thing was one of them, even though I never really finished it. I did read a fair bit before th

This book had me wanting more. I love the world the author created and the character of Sara. Institute for Paranormal Dysfunction was a great idea. I like the name as well. :) This book kept me interested and wanting more. I was very excited to read this book. It had many things I love about my books Paranormal, mages, action, adventure, and much more. * I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review*

A very enjoyable read.

I enjoyed the original spin on magic meets an industrial; technological society. I tend to favor a story with strong but not perfect and unbeatable characters and this novel filled that bill. The adept, strong but seriously flawed characters were truly enjoyable.

Keeps upping the ante.

This book is excellent at keeping the reader's interest in what will happen next. You are also kept wondering what the characters will do next, as the story is rife with morally ambiguous motivations. Looking forward to reading what happens next.

A series to watch
If you are looking for something new and a little different to read then Wild Thing by Australian author L.J. Kendall might be worth a try. The novel is multi-dimensional with its genres blending elements of urban, paranormal and fantasy and offering some interesting insight into a world where magic and technology rule but at the cost of what matters most in life.

World-building has been very cleverly and imaginatively created. It is well-thought out making it easier to suspend

Bizarrely excellent and amazing

The main character begins this adventure as a child with whom we can all empathise and feel empathy. The rape of her mind, by her adopted father does not keep us, the readers, from wanting her to succeed. Viewed from another perspective, she is being manipulated into not only a sociopath, but perhaps the most dangerous one in history. Yet, those in power not only do nothing to help her, but continue her teaching on a path to destruction for their own goals. None th
