"Connor" by Dormaine G. is a quirky but also dark fun read for young adults and those still young at hearts. Connor is a long suffering and somewhat cynical teenager with a good sense of dark humour and with guts. As middle child she might feel left out but she has a special gift and soon finds others who share her supernatural talents.During her supernatural adventures she remains herself, a student, a daughter, a sister and a regular girl, which is what I loved most about this book. The advent [...]

Debut Author! TEN Winners!  Click on Banner to Enter!Two pages in and I’m laughing at the dialogue and snark of Connor, a teen with attitude, no real fashion sense and that feeling like she just doesn’t fit in. Sounds kind of normal, awkward and I’m completely connected to Connor, who wants to just disappear after a particularly bad incident at school. The difference is that she DID disappear! Connor by Dormaine G. is refreshing, fast, fun, and full of the adventures of a group of young p [...]

(Disclaimer)I was given this free ebook in exchange for an honest reviewFirst of all I am a sucker for anything paranormal. Then when you throw in a bit of romance and that Love/Hate relationship with it (sighs).you have me all the way. I have a soft spot for the hurt/bad guys. The plot was really thought out and the characters were beautifully written. It starts out when Conner first discover her abilities(super powers). She then meets Antony aka Tony and group of friends who share the same typ [...]

Connor is Dormaine G's debut novel, and I must say that I am pleased with this author's work. She did an awesome job in opening up her main character to readers. The author takes a seemingly regular teenager and makes the possibilities endless for her. As Connor comes into her own and discovers some fascinating "things" about herself and deals with regular issues that we've faced as teenagers ourselves, I could actually imagine myself as her. And it's an exciting journey to see how a regular tee [...]

Okay, to start out with, I was very attracted to the characters. Connor is a fun person, and I LOVED when she and Tony clicked. The action was fast-paced and kept coming at you. There is definitely something to be said for this booke action never stops. Between Connor and her new 'team', they have so much friction that it is loveable, and I enjoyed their banter. The book starts when Connor, a fifteen-yr old girl, discovers that she has extreme super-powers. She falls in with a group of other kid [...]

I don’t think I can begin to say how much I love Connor! This was such a fun, fun read that I’m pretty sure I’ll reread it in the future.I think what I love the most about this book was Connor’s sense of humor! I kept on grinning, laughing out loud while reading this book. And also that it was equal parts funny and dramatic and action-packed.I love Connor’s family, too! Especially her mom (ah, what I would give to have some of that good cooking mama style). Some characters surprised me [...]

I'm not a big sci fi reader but love a book with a great story that grasps my attention. It reminds me of The Kindred by Octavia Butler with it's ability to bring me.a non-science fiction reader, into its story and make we want more. I hear she is writing the second novel on Coonnor and I cannot wait until I can find out more about Connor as she grows up.

Connor!!!This book takes a reader in from the start and keeps them interested to the very end!! Connor knew she was different from her family but always kept it in denial until she met others like her. Looking forward to reading book 2!!

This book was not readable. The formatting (for kindle; purchased via amazon) shoved all the text to the left side. I made it through 3 pages and gave up.

This is one of those times when I wish I could give a ½ star because I would give this book 3-½ stars. Since I don't have that option, I'm rounding up to 4.This was an enjoyable book with an intriguing plot, not entirely original, but told well. I particularly enjoyed Connor's POV, that of a self-aware 15 year old girl with a sense of humor about herself and others.There were a couple of typos, nothing major, but what bothered me were the occasional lapses in subject/verb agreement, and the mo [...]

First, allow me to begin by saying that I'm not truly into YA novels. Because of this, the beginning wasn't too appealing to me, but then again it's targeted for the younger generation and I fell out of that category some time ago. It was just a little too elementary for this grandmother. However, once I got past the opening, the story opened up into something I considered a delightful read. Connor is not your typical teen. She's different and she knows it! Deep down she senses her differences i [...]

Connor is a fifteen year old American girl, with a flair for the funny and the sarcastic. She discovers she has special powers, which she finds quite cool seeing as everything else about her seems to be below average and unremarkable. Soon after finding out that she is different, Connor meets Tony, who also has abilities. The two team up, and quickly become friends. Tony introduces her to others of their kind, and the small group embarks upon a mission to get some answers.The story is told from [...]

I want to love this - I really really do. It is such an intriguing concept and such an intriguing story. And Connor is an amazing character! She is so feisty and sarcastic. She has such wit and humor. As many of the other reviewers have pointed out this isn’t like a lot of other supernatural books that have come out recently - there is a real dark humor to this that is wonderful to see. It doesn’t take itself too seriously - everything is not life or death even when we are dealing with life [...]

Connor is an entertaining book, filled with teenage angst and interesting characters. I'd call it a SciFi/Fantasy coming-of-age story. For creativity, I give it 4-stars. The technical rating comes in at 2-stars. Overall, 3-stars.There are two distinct parts to the book. The first part, where we get to know Connor, her friends and her outlook on life is well done. The second part, where we learn about Connor's abilities and what it all means, throws a lot at both the characters and the reader wit [...]

Boy, the author can write adolescent angst just as well as Judy Blume, if not more contemporary, since it is decades later now. I loved the first half of the story, when the main character, Connor, navigates adolescence with her pesky younger brother, approval-seeking sister, and her conventional and understanding parents. I loved her laments at how "different" she is and how she did not fit in, but has a relentlessly optimistic outlook. If this author ever chooses to go the path of young adult [...]

Sasha Esquibel, aka Connor, is a fifteen-year-old high school student with a secret. Not your usual teen secret – Connor has a special power. And, she is not alone. There are others like her. Some are her friends and allies, and some her mortal enemies. As if this is not challenging enough, she is blessed with boringly normal parents (who are not her actual parents), a popular older sister, and a bratty little brother.Dormaine G’s Connor is a science fiction story for young adult readers tha [...]

'Connor' was an enticing read that started off slowly but ended with a bang. Completely ordinary but feisty black girl, Connor, believes she has a mundane life with run of the mill parents and typically annoying siblings. Her life seems anything but extraordinary. That is until an incident at school reveals an incredible ability she has and this sudden knowledge opens her up to a world around her that she never knew existed. Suddenly Connor's ordinary existence is far from what she could ever ha [...]

This is a high 3 star rating (don't you wish they'd at least let you put in a half star mark as well sometimes!) for a good paranormal YA romp with wise-cracking, head-banging Connor, who discovers she has superpowers and, more disturbingly, that she isn't who she thinks she is, or rather her family aren't her family.This is a pacey, punchy story with plenty of action, laced through with teen wit and awkwardness that rings true for any fifteen year old (or is she?) girl growing up fast and furio [...]

Connor starts off a bit slow, but the pace accelerates to light speed by the end. Getting into the mind of this young woman wrestling with typical teen angst and some very unusual circumstances is a joy. She is having a tough time dealing with the normal issues all teens face, but comes face to face with the bizarre truth that she is not a normal teen at all.The plot leads Connor from her school, family and friends into a reality with inhuman powers and beasts from deep within the author's imagi [...]

A fun, teen read with a feisty heroineThe story was a fun and quick read with a heroine, Connor, who I cheered along as she discovered why she was different. I liked that she liked what was happening to her even though it was a little scary. Her interactions with her family were truly believable with great characterisations. The teen group she meets were also a good mix of characters.Quite a few more characters are introduced in the second half, and while some might find that confusing, I was ha [...]

This is an EXCELLENT YA Paranormal novel. I tend to stay away from first persons since I’ve found them to be lacking in getting you involved. However, with Dormaine endeavor here, I not only got sucked into the story; I got sucked into the psyche of Connor, the story’s main character and at times feeling I’ve become the character Dormaine has created. It felt weird discovering that only I, but five of my best friends as well had all been adopted at about the same time and from the same pla [...]

We sci-fi/fantasy authors can take our selves too seriously sometimes, what with the saving the world typical of our genre and all that. In Dormaine's book, a fifteen-year old girl discovers she has super powers - and I can hear some of you yawn already. Yet, you shouldn't, for this is not your usual YA yarn. Dormaine writes in a witty, engaging way, breathing new life into the genre with her sarcastic heroine that doesn't take herself too seriously. Peppered with descriptions like "more people [...]

Recently I have been reading more Young Adult books, more to see what my kids are reading and to see if perhaps I will find another author I will enjoy myself.Conner captures the attention from the very beginning with snappy and snarky observations from our heroine Conner. I enjoy humor and sarcasm, especially when I can appreciate the fear and insecurity behind the "brave" words.There were a few grammatical errors and typos, mostly in the second half of the book, and while Conner has unusual he [...]

This was my first introduction to YA Fantasy and I loved the fundamental idea of a teenager's first love and being part of a group of peers with the same supernatural powers. The insights to their respective families and backgrounds also brought empathy . There were many excellent descriptive scenarios as well; in the sinister scenes and in those with Tony. I also liked the protagonist, Conner, although I felt that her dialogue occasionally didn't fit the malevolent, dark scenes (a little too fl [...]

I was inspired to write this book because ever since childhood I have always had a love for science fiction. I was considered the weird one in the house because I loved star wars, star trek and any superhero show or book. Unfortunately, growing up there weren't that many characters out there that looked like me on television, in movies or in books. It still did not deter me from continuing to love what was not considered the norm back then. I continued to read fiction and realized as I got older [...]
