In High: The Way of an Eagle by Charlene Quiram, Verona Lamberti is in a battle that ranges from the supernatural world where demons manipulate humans to commit horrible acts of violence to a new high school that is extremely different from the one she was used to in New York. Her battles in the physical world are those which a typical sixteen-year-old teen would face, while trying to be accepted in a new school and community after her parents’ divorce and her relocation to Jamestown, Virginia. Her supernatural battles are against dark forces from a realm that no one seems to understand. She is able to see events that are about to happen, whenever she suddenly has an out of body experience in which she takes on the form of an eagle. What makes her experiences even worse is when the two worlds cross over and those things which are a part of the mystical world become a part of the real world. Does she have what it takes to deal with both worlds without losing herself or those she holds most dear?
High: The Way of an Eagle is a mixture of sensations that will leave the reader breathless. The detail of characterization brings a reality even to the mystical side of Verona’s experiences and makes the entire story believable. The plot keeps the reader turning pages in order to discover what surprise is waiting around the next corner. The humor is an excellent touch to a story that sometimes needs a little comic relief as the reader is taken on a wild ride into dark places and situations that would raise the hair on the back of any normal teen’s neck.
Suspenseful, realistic, and well written, the author will drag the reader deeply into the story and not disappoint. Excellent read for those who enjoy a thrilling suspense novel with a twist.
