Review of Savannah Grey by Cliff McNish

15 year old Savannah Grey has never felt she's belonged. She keeps her distance, so she's surprised by her attraction to the new boy Reece. Then strange things begin to happen: nature, it seems, is exerting an overpowering force on the world. Birds behave strangely; gusts of wind blow leaves so fiercely they seem to lure people away. And Savannah learns she has supernatural powers. Nature has a purpose for Savannah and her friends. For they are on course to meet the vile and evil Orcrassa, who wants to destroy the world by corrupting nature. And it wants Savannah Grey to help realise its savage intent.

The story is certainly one of the most unique ones I have ever read. I put off reading this for so long after I requested it, not really knowing why. The Ocrassa was certainly the most interesting character and I read it's story eagerly, albeit slowly because the pages were black which scared Adobe. Must buy an eReader.

Savannah's character is that of a typical YA heroine, so there's a feeling of familiarity there while you try and make sense of all the oddness that is happening.

Plot twists! I guess them all! Except this one... I just wasn't expecting it. I love the plot twist though, it really adds to the story and kept me reading more and more... and I would have read more but the story ended. Rather abruptly. Which was really annoying. Wouldn't have killed Cliff to add an extra chapter or two. Heck, a one page epilogue! So that's why this story gets one star knocked off. I hate abrupt/rushed endings.

4/5
