Search for Senna

Search for Senna by K. A. Applegate is the first book in the Ever World series. It is intended for older teens. 17 year old David falls for a girl named Senna. Senna is a little bit different and has the ability to be prescient. She senses that something awful is going to happen and asks David to save her. The next day Senna is captured by a wolf like creature in a space bending vortex, or something. David and three of his friends are a witness to the event.

I can't say what happens after that because I just didn't care for the story. It had way too much teen soap opera stuff. It's like watching Secret Life of the American Teenager with a sci-fi twist. While I like sci-fi, this was just not for me.  Seeing as how there are about 12 books in the series it must be doing well and has positive reviews at Amazon. The book has violence and teen romance in the first few chapters.

Book Rating: 1.5 stars, for what I did read.

The books I select for review are books which I personally select from my local library. I do not receive any reimbursement from authors or publishers or free books. I do provide links to Amazon as a convenience to the readers of this blog. I do earn a small referral pittance which is not even enough to buy a soda.

The first book in the Everworld series is probably the weakest, IMO. I didn't really care for it the first time I read it either.

However, I was hooked from the second book and on, so I suggest giving the series another try. There's a great mix of mythologies in there to make things interesting (For that reason, I especially recommend this series to people who enjoyed the Percy Jackson series).
