BOOK SPOTLIGHT: The Urban Boys by K.N. Smith

Hi guys and gals!
Welcome back to Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers.

Today, we're playing the part of devil's advocate and bringing you not one but TWO posts...aka potential titles to be added to your wish/reading list.  You're welcome.  *devilish grin*  Now, this post is the close out spotlight for a tour that's been circling the blogosphere all month long.  It stars a Young Adult Paranormal title that's sure to garner an audience both within the target range and beyond...after all, one is not limited by age to a certain genre, just the power of our imaginations.  Seeing how mine is rather active, I invite you in to take a peek at iRead Book Tours latest find...



The Urban Boys:
Discovery of the Five Senses
by
K.N. Smith

About the book...
...an action-adventure story about five teen boys who are mysteriously exposed to a foreign energy source that gives them extremely heightened senses. Sight, sound, touch, taste, and smell become hypersensitive gifts that forever change the world!

The story chronicles their effortless interrelations and later exposes the testing of their deep bonds, and introduces the reader to an array of supporting characters who alter the boys’ lives forever. The Urban Boys offers young and mature readers central themes of loyalty, responsibility, honesty, fear, and triumph, which become artfully integrated with cinematic-level action and high drama.

We wonder, will they pass the test of fate, and will each of us pass the test of our very own lives? Intriguing, intelligent, and full of action, The Urban Boys offers a memorable, emotion-packed, thrilling ride for traditional and digital readers of all ages! (first in a series)

What people are saying....

"An energetic YA adventure debut with stellar action sequences. Smith's writing is intelligent and often lyrical. Her exuberant prose never fails to dazzle."- Kirkus Media
"Author K.N. Smith uses her mastery of the written word to weave an entrancing, yet powerful tale of adventure that keeps you turning pages in an unquenchable desire to find out what happens next. The author's matchless prose details cinematic fight sequences and fully developed characterizations especially in a final, stupendous scene that will take your breath away and leave you limp with spent emotions. Five stars for this imaginative and inspiring story, sure to be as appealing to general audiences as it will be to the YA crowd!" 5-stars - Publishers Daily Reviews
"I LOVE to read, but live a hugely busy life. It gets more complicated upon that rare occasion when a book is so captivating, so enthralling, that it is impossible to walk away. With only definitive hours in a day, something has to give. For me, that was sleep! And it was worth every sacrificed minute. “The Urban Boys” was the grand slam home run and exceeded my wildest expectations and I would bet, maybe yours, as well. Totally new concepts and a rich crew of characters – good, bad and ugly… and suspenseful twists that keep you guessing, and such beautiful, strong writing! A must read for fans of YA action/adventure/fantasy!!" 5-stars - Indie Book Reviewers

It sounds as if The Urban Boys features many of those things I know my friends teenage boys look for in a book. I shall be sure to mention it to them.
