Rating: 4 out of 5.


It felt kind of like Enid Blyton’s The Famous Five – it brings back the memories of reading good YA books. I have never read any books with the main characters having their senses heightened and that was something totally new to me.

It is a story of five friends; five different characters who decided to take a stroll into a forest they were told never to go to by their parents. As they explore the forest, they come across super natural incidents of exploding balls of light, where their senses were heightened. Each one of them has a different sense heightened. With this newfound ability, the boys also take on the responsibility to fight crimes that happen in the vicinity of their town. What follows is a series of suspense and thriller as the boys combat evil and the challenges that come their way.

The story is a little long-winded and flowery, for me but the storyline is not that easy to figure out, which makes the story interesting. There are also descriptive writings in the book, which may not interest some readers, especially the young ones. However, over all it is an enjoyable read and the heightened senses were quite compelling.
