Review: Wyatt Watkins and the Adder Stones

Wyatt Watkins and the Adder Stones (Wyatt Watkins #1)
by Jacob Tate & Kate Callahan
Genre: YA Fantasy
Release Date: May 28th 2015

Summary from Goodreads:

Wyatt Watkins is like most young boys his age. He’s an excited daydreamer, always eager to make friends – and he always keeps an eye out for his next adventure. 

Life in New York City has always been simple and pleasant for Wyatt and his siblings, Josh and Rose. Wyatt works hard in school, gets good grades, and enjoys a reliable and fun circle of friends. But when tragedy strikes the Watkins family, they are forced to relocate from the city to Upstate New York and the rural, forgotten town of Cloverbrook. 

A seemingly harmless, small town of roughly 3,000 people, nestled at the base of the Adirondack Mountains, Cloverbrook welcomes the family quickly as it prepares for its 72nd Annual Pumpkin Smash and Harvest Festival. Wyatt finds the massive forests, blanketed in a sea of orange, red and yellow leaves, the perfect playground to adjust to his new life, while the family struggles to cope with their loss. 

But deep in the dark forests that surround the town, a hidden evil lurks…waiting…watching. And while the evil forces in the forest continue to grow, Wyatt uncovers an artifact with untold power that will thrust the entire family into the middle of an ancient struggle between good and evil.

I received an ecopy from YA Bound Book Tours and the author in exchange for my honest, unbiased review.

Review: A fun and exciting read! While I felt this one started out a little slow, once it picked up, I couldn't put it down! In the small town of Cloverbrook, all is not as it seems. Dangers haunt the forest, and quickly set their eyes on Wyatt and his family! While it started slow, that helped build suspense, and lead up to an intense last half!

My one disappointment was that it uses God focused swearing a lot, especially toward the end. I felt it could have been just as exciting with out that, and it didn't add anything to the story, just made it vulgarer to read. Other than that, I enjoyed it, and an interested to see what happens to Wyatt in the next book!
