Aversion by Kenichi Udungu


*I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review*  

Aversion (The Mentalist Series, #1)Aversion is a YA paranormal which follows int he eyes of sixteen year old Gemma Green.
This book is certainly a page turner. The only reason I put it down was because I have to deal with responsibilities and life.

There was barely a moment I didn't want to know what happened next right from the get go. It progressed perfectly right up to the dramatic ending when Gemma obtains a glimpse of what she is really capable of. It is followed by a clear intention of a sequel, which I was quite pleased about because I would like to read more of this series.

The only real criticism I had was that the novel was too short. I got through it quickly because it's closer to a novella size, but I want to know more! The idea of aversion in this book is intriguing. I want to see Gemma grow and blossom and use her aversion skills to kick some ass!

 I recommend this book to anyone who any YA and paranormal fan. Aversion failed to disappoint. It's a page turner and a great story.

 Kenechi kindly answered some THIS OR THAT questions for me. So check them out and see what kind of things she likes :D

1.       Night or Day: Night. For some weird reason, I feel more energised when the sun goes down. No, I am not a vampire. I’ve checked and I don’t sparkle. Or hate garlic.  
2.       Summer or winter: Summer. Winter = cold. Enough said. 
3.       Beach or exploration: Beach, but I’d still like to explore a little. Just not for an entire holiday. 
4.       Games or movies: Urgh, can I go for both? I’m a bit of a games freak and a self-confessed telly addict. Please, don’t make me chose. 
5.       Self-published or traditional published: As a self-published author, I’ve started to read a lot more indie books and have been lucky to find a few gems over the years. I’ve also met a number of indie writers online who have shared their struggles with me and have become good friends. I’d never bash traditionally published books though. A good book is a good book, irrespective of the way it’s published. 
6.       Laptop or desktop: I love my desktop. It’s so much more reliable than any laptop I’ve ever owned. 
7.       Camping or 5 star resort: 5 star resort, or anywhere with solid walls around my bed. I’ve never understood the appeal of sleeping outside with bugs. 
8.       Car or bike: Most definitely car! I’m ashamed to say I still don’t know how to ride a bike.  
9.       Coke or Pepsi: Coke. Is there even any comparison? 
10.   Classical music or heavy metal: Leaning towards heavy metal for this one. I occasionally listen to classical music but I can sit for hours and submerge myself in rock music.
