Five teens, the best of friends, find that they are not only friends, but they have a mission in life. They are Spirit Warriors - they can move their own spirit to share the body of an animal, then back to their own body. What a trick to learn when you are 15! Spirit Warriors follows these five friends as they are brought to a time when they are needed to use their powers to defeat an evil. They have trained and looked for the evil for a while now, but when they are finally confronted with it, they are surprised. It came in a disguise that no one would have expected and almost leads them into trouble.

Spirit Warriors by D.E.L. Connor is well written and entertaining, and with the main characters all being in the middle teens, they bring in a world of issues from that same teen life. This makes the story good for the teen and young adult market, while keeping the topics of abuse and homosexuality, which are mentioned, in a brighter light. Nothing of the actual abuse is described but more alluded to, and so I find that the way the kids work through finding out these things to be beneficial to readers. Some will say this is the perfect book for girls, and while there are three girl teens in the main cast, there are also three boys throughout the book. I find it has a mix that girls will enjoy, and yet there is still enough action and adventure to interest boys as well. It is a coming-of-age novel that deals with the harsh realities of life, and at the same time, it entertains you with the spirits.
