The Supernaturalist by Eoin Colfer
Review Written by Guest Blogger Jonathan
In the future, in a place called Satelite City, fourteen-year-old Cosmo Hill enters the world, unwanted by his parents. He’s sent to the Clarissa Frayne Institute for Parentally Challenged Boys, Freight class. At Clarissa Frayne, the boys are put to work by the state, testing highly dangerous products. At the end of most days, they are covered with burns, bruises, and sores. Cosmo realizes that if he doesn’t escape, he will die at this so-called orphanage. When the moment finally comes, Cosmo takes his chances and breaks out with the help of the Supernaturalists, a crew of kids who all have the same special ability as Cosmo-they can see supernatural Parasites, creatures that feed on the life force of humans. The Supernaturalists patrol the city at night, hunting the Parasites in hopes of saving what’s left of humanity in Satellite City. Or so they think. The Supernaturalist soon find themselves caught in a web far more complicated than they’d imagined, when they discover a horrifying secret that will force them to question everything they believe in.

What Jonathan Thought of The Supernaturalist
I thought the book was really intriguing and was really good. I really wished that Eoin Colfer would’ve written a second book. It has a lot of action parts and mystery as well. Not as much talking, so you would never want to stop reading.
What I love the most is that the book doesn’t have as much talking as some of the “Harry Potter” books. It always has action. This made me want to continue reading, even though my eyes started to hurt. In the book, my favorite part is when Cosmo and Mona (She is part of the crew) are about to kiss. It just was very descriptive and was a cute part of the book.
