Review: Unleashed by Jennifer Hartz

Unleashed (Heroes of the Horde #1)Unleashed by Jennifer Hartz

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


Unleashed

Six mismatched students at Deacon Proprietary are about to discover the demonic legend of their school’s origin is actually true. Not only have they obtained amazing powers, but they’ve also unleashed the demonic Horde. Now it’s up to these six high school freshmen to stop the Horde before its evil spreads throughout the school and beyond.
(Blurb from Goodreads)

Unleashed was an interesting book about kids who acquired super powers with which to fight demons.

Characters

The characters were pretty good. I liked that they were all unique, and not exactly the same. Unfortunately, they were not very round characters.

Plot

The plot did not flow well. Each chapter was from a different character’s perspective (in first person, which I found jarring), and even within the chapter the plot jumped.

Overall thoughts

The dating. Ugh. I mean really, in ninth grade? Also, it was riddled with typos. Other than that, it was ok.

Would I recommend it? No
Would I let my kids read it? I would let them, if they wanted to, once they were in high school
Would I read the other books in the series? Maybe

Overall Rating: 3 out of 5 stars

I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for my honest review.
