Freeks by Amanda Hocking


TJ Burns — February 20, 2017


Freeks was exciting and enjoyable! It starts out colorful and mysterious, and then takes a dark turn.

The story moved along so fast — the action pulled me in and wouldn’t let me get a breath in! I had fun guessing and speculating throughout. I predicted a lot of things correctly, but there were still enough surprises to keep my interest — and I don’t mind predicting correctly if the clues are subtle enough… makes me feel smart!

The insta-flirt turned into insta-love, but I didn’t mind. There was genuine chemistry between Gabe and Mara that superseded a superficial (looks-based) insta-love connection.

It was also predictable that Mara should be the one to save the day, but I didn’t mind that either — Mara, the fighter of evil! Cool!

All in all, a very enjoyable, exciting read!



I received a copy of this book from St. Martin’s Press via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Published January 3rd 2017 by St. Martin’s Griffin.
