I just posted my review of Portals of the Grave by the talented Lander Allen:
Truly engrossing. The character description is fantastic. They jump right off the page. Lander Allen’s writing style is similar to Brandon Mull with his Fablehaven Series. Portals of the Grave is truly a treat for lovers of the Sci-Fi genre. I really loved this story. This deserves a full 5 stars! You really laugh and cry along with the characters every step of the way. Amazingly realistic descriptions. Allen painted a vibrant picture. I love the use of magic in this story. Spoiler Alert: The Tetrapath monsters in this story are terrifying – especially when you learn who they really are! The technology fused with magic really transcends this story to a whole new level! I’ve picked up book 2, “Mists of Affliction”, and I’m excited to see what happens next!

Here’s the Blurb:
What if someone buried a secret inside you?
Scott, Miranda, and Dixon have no idea where they came from. At the age of seven, they fell through a portal onto the planet Cova. Their bodies were marked with mysterious surgical scars. Doctors and scientists watched them grow, always looking for answers. Were they aliens? Bio-engineered? Children from the future?
On the eve of their adulthood, answers finally arrive. A scattered and tattered people from the other side of the world seem to know the truth about the portal. However, these new people hold subtle, unexplained powers. Can they be trusted? Whatever their intentions, they are a threat to Cova.
Scott, Miranda, and Dixon are now in a race to find out who they really are. As they battle to save Cova from the threat of this new civilization, they must answer the most important question: are they the very weapons that could destroy humanity?
