The Nano Review
Awesome, Awesome, Awesome
The Plot Balancer by Patrick Wong starts off fast and exciting and doesn’t let up. Two best friends Nicole and Amy are on a camping trip that also doubles as the backdrop for their latest YouTube video while also serving as an excuse for Amy to ‘accidentally’ bump into her crush. Things suddenly take a dangerous turn when a freak wildfire breaks out and the two girls are forced to run for their lives. Along the way they save the life of another girl.
Later they learn that the girl has made a miraculous recovery from seemingly fatal injuries. Something is strange with Nicole as well and she soon discovers that she has the power to give and take life. It’s a gift that grants her extraordinary healing powers but at great cost. It’s a power that’s beginning to get her noticed and when mysterious agents come knocking Nicole is going to have to figure out just who she can trust.
I absolutely loved Balancer by Patrick Wong. It was awesome, amazing, spectacular as well as loads of other synonyms. The story was really interesting and unique and though Balancer was told primarily from Nicole’s perspective both girls seemed really cool and fun. I loved the plot which is a refreshing addition to the paranormal genre and Wong’s writing clips along smoothly and well.
I totally can’t wait for the next book in the Final Deity series and I’d recommend it to anyone who likes paranormal stories filled with cool female characters, shifty secret agents, an engaging mystery, laughter and a few tears (warning: keep some tissues handy).
Read it, make your friends read it, and cross your fingers for a movie.
