Review by: Andrew Kuligowski on Oct. 06, 2013 :
It's tough to be graduating high school. To be crossing over that threshold from teenager to adult, from High School to college and/or the work force, to … to be haunted by dreams, to have some sort of electrical discharge that can short circuit small appliances and devices, to believe a mermaid-like creature has tried to drown you … OK, so Endora Lee Andrews, also known as “Eel” as both a play on her name AND for her electrical oddity, may be facing more issues than your typical graduating teenager.

Pawn is the second of Sophie Davis' books that I've read this year. I liked our protagonist, Endora, but I was suspicious of all of her friends and of the adults in this book. SOMETHING felt wrong … if this was the sensation that Ms. Davis was aiming for, it worked. However, I never shook the sense of paranoia that anyone, any time, could turn out to not be what they seemed. It's tougher to enjoy a book when you're constantly looking over your shoulder and that of the heroine.

RATING: 4 stars.
DISCLOSURE: To be honest, I don't recall if I got this for free or if I paid a nominal fee for it. Either way, I DID promise the author I would give it an honest review upon completion.

Review by: Linda Terrutty on Sep. 22, 2013 :
I love books about mythology and this was definitely a different take from any I have read before. Unlike others I have read, I actually liked most of the characters as well.

Almost from the beginning, I was intrigued and as the story progressed, the surprises just kept coming. It starts with Eel almost drowning on her 18th birthday, and meeting Kannon. Of course, nothing about that event was as simple as that. From there, Eel will learn she is not only different, she isn't the only one and there is more to it than her "quirk" of shorting out electronics over time.

Kannon is the first person like her that she meets. He not only saves her life, but is the first one to explain to her what she is and the fact that there are others. However, unlike Kannon, she is still different. With the help of Devon, her best friend and the only friend who knows everything and is willing to help, and her father's friend, Mr. Wentworth, she begins to unravel the confusion that surrounds her, including her missing father, how she became an watcher (not going to try to spell it!), and the truth about why Kannon scares her at times.

I really liked Devon and Eel. There interactions and how they looked out for each other. They had each others back, and would do anything for the other. The one thing I did find odd is how easy and often they spent the night at each others houses. My parents were never that free with my siblings and I, but that is not to say that other parents are not.

Book 2 is definitely on my list to read.

This book surprised me. I absolutely loved it. I love Devon, Eel & Kannon. I cannot wait to read more about them and others in the book. Pawn was an extremely interesting read, creepy at times, I am so excited to read book two as soon as it comes out.

Pawn is a story that makes you sit and wonder why. There were twists to the story right up to the end - it is truly amazing. I thought that I had it figured out, but no was I wrong. Endora or Eel as her friends call her is a likable person and the way the author writes the story you feel like you are right there with her, figuring it out at her speed. I hope that the rest of the trilogy continues along the same lines as this book and that they are released soon! Would I recommend this book to others - yes I would definitely

Review by: Jacquie Talento on May 29, 2013 :
I received a copy from the author for an honest review. What if everything you believed in life about yourself turned out to be a lie? Had déjà vu moments that really were going play out in the future as if you had already experienced them? Endora or Eel as her friends call her has those experiences. She also seems to cause electronics to stop working. But on her 18th birthday, things start to happen and change around her. Her best friend Devon is about the only person she can trust. She misses her dad but when he doesn’t meet her for the appointment they have planned together, Eel gets an odd call that changes things. Once Kannon saves her from a near death experience, the connection is strong between them and undeniable. But is he safe to be around and is he someone she can trust? What secrets will Eel learn about who she really is? This is the beginning of another pull you in story from Ms. Davis you will want to pick up and read.
