Throughout history man has long believed that inside each and every one of us there is an animal.

But what if there was more?

What if a few gifted teenagers could learn to harness the power of their animal?

Enter a journey of discovery, meet those who can fight like bears, swim like fish, jump like frogs and fly like eagles.

These are ordinary people with extraordinary powers.

ANIMAL is a well paced, action laced young adult adventure that builds an interesting fantasy on top of the recognisable world. We are presented with a teenage protagonist that has to deal with physical and emotional awakenings, both wanted and unwanted. Unsure of herself and damaged by two extremely traumatic experiences (that give a sharp edge to the background story) we see her find her strength when she realizes she has to take responsibility and deal with the issues (destiny… ?) she has put off/hid from and is now forced to be part of. I’m not a traditional young adult reader so it was interesting for me to see parallels the story offered I normally read in other genres: how young people deal with immigration, developing sexuality, pressures of friendship/fitting in, depression, rebellion, and the more common anxieties – shoes and clothes 😉 – we face growing up. I enjoyed finding that the theme of transformation went deeper than a purely abstract fantasy and it offers lots of scope for further works and letting us see how the characters mature (while still enjoying the fun of Banks’ fantasy world). There is a good build up of plot, and suspenseful reveals of the mysteries the author teases the reader with from early on. There is plenty of action, and satisfaction from seeing the story expand (not giving away any secrets here…) setting up the series well.

Loved it!!

I really really enjoyed this story, it is a great read. It has a great plot and a good pace. It has so many elements that come together perfectly to make a really engrossing read. I feel like the premise of people manifesting certain animal powers is awesome and I loved being in that universe. Certain parts were sad, some thrilling and others quite touching. I can’t wait for the second instalment!!

Fun, fast paced adventure.

I really enjoyed this fun book. It’s a very fast paced, easy to read adventure with plenty of action and an exciting climax. The characters are easy to relate to, although a couple of times I did almost strain a muscle rolling my eyes at them. I certainly enjoyed the book’s take on how real teenagers deal with trying to be heroes, even if it is a bit reluctantly for some. It’s a great journey into the colourful and vivid world of the Anitars (I hope we get to see more of it in the next book,) plus the satisfyingly shady lair of their very very evil enemies. If you like YA why not give it a try!

When first starting the book I was unsure about Nina, as she didn’t seem that strong as a character. Then my teenage self was revived and I was drawn into this world of the Anitars, eager to find out what was going to happen next. The writing brings you in and Nina shows the side you were wanting to see, and storylines come together in a clever way. It took me back to being a Teenager and I am keen to read the next in the series.

Good read

Four stars as it was good but not great not as captivating as some books of read in this type of storyline.. Hopefully with the next book it will be more about skill sets evolving whilst training etc. Would recommend to anyone who enjoys this genre. Can’t wait for more developments in books to follow
