Abstrus (Planet Abstrus Series #1 by TK Rayford

When 17 year old Lexi Lee's mother disappeared six months ago, her world was turned upside down. Just when she is coming to terms with her new, motherless life, she meets Farah, Ferdinand, and Liza, a strange group of teenagers. She quickly finds out that they are not at all what they seem.

Lexi finds that although she is human, that is only one part of what she is and people are after her for it. She has to figure out who she can trust... and fast. She learns that her mother has known the truth all along, but disappeared before she could explain things to her. She believesthat she has no hope of survival if she doesn't find her mother, and trusting the wrong person to help her could prove fatal.

This book was great! I def recommend it. I can't wait for book 2 to find out what happens to Lexi and Liza and where her mother is.

The author really placed me in this world with her decriptive writing style. I truly felt like a fly on the wall that could read minds as I read this book. I am so glad to learn this is a series! Can not wait until book 2!

...was tempted to stop reading halfway thru...but pushed on hoping it would go somewhere. Characters are shallow & undeveloped...plot is dull...& Lexi's self pity and continual whining is enough to make you want to run screaming from this book. A few parts that were written in the second person were a bit more interesting...but then we always had to go back to first person & listen to Lexi whine & repeat herself over & over & over & over again & again & again, while the plot continued to go nowhere. By the time the main character finally acted even a little caring about other people, it was too late...hated her too much to care...

Very good book. I am looking forward to the next book. The author left this book open for a sequel.

Are you interested in reading about aliens living on Earth? That is the overall theme of this story. When I first read the description of this book, I didn't think aliens. I saw paranormal and immediately thought supernatural, i.e. witches, vampires, werewolves, etc. I am perhaps ruining a little of the story by telling you that it is about aliens, but it was something that I was surprised to find out since I don't read these types of stories. That being said, it was a really good story. It's not one of my favorites. The main character Lexi has a rather whiny internal monologue. You know from the description that Lexi's mother disappeared six months before this story is taking place, but you don't really learn anything about why or how until chapter five. That means you have four chapters of wondering, "Did she die? Did she run away? Where did she go if she ran way? Did she just abandon her family to be with a lover?" Questions like these filled my head until I got more information in chapter five and that wasn't much. You don't REALLY learn what happened until about two-thirds of the way through the book. Not that that is a problem. The issue I had was listening to Lexi complain about the raw deal she has been given. She doesn't verbally sound whiny to other people in the story. She is actually very strong in appearance to the other characters in the story. TK Rayford actually does a great job in showing how what someone shows to others may not actually be how they feel on the inside. I felt like I could connect to Lexi in that since I have to be strong on the outside to everyone around me, but on the inside I am normally tearing myself apart emotionally. That personal conflict is wonderfully demonstrated. It is well written and a good story. Well worth reading even if you don't like to read about aliens.
