The Four by M.D. Allen begins with the author revealing a little more about Kari, Lainey, and Kaine before they came to the Inner Realm. The eight teenagers have been in the Inner Realm for several months now, learning to control their individual abilities. Matilda and Ethan face many new trials from evil forces, namely four brothers. The four brothers look exactly alike, but each brother has a wicked skill that can control or kill the teenagers. The Watchers have their hands full keeping track of the Chosen, especially when Matilda takes off and Ethan attempts to rescue her. Will they learn to trust the Watchers to guide them and prevent the evil that surrounds them from controlling them?
M.D. Allen packs The Four with adventure, drama, and suspense. The Chosen teenagers go from one danger to facing unknown assailants. The teens have little time to adjust from one trial before training for the next. The author keeps the reader guessing as to whether the Chosen are ready for the next task they are about to face. Some questions about Matilda and Ethan’s past and future are answered, but at the end of the novel the author throws a curveball you did not see coming. Overall, I loved reading the development of the Chosen teenagers. The author created a bewitching storyline that will mesmerize readers. The novel ends in a cliffhanger that will keep you hungry for the next one. This is an author you will want to watch as her novels are well-written and contain unique plots and characters.
