Review: Prowl by Amber Garza

Prowl (Prowl Trilogy #1)

Prowl (Prowl Trilogy #1) by Amber Garza

Seventeen-year-old Mackenzie Smith is sent away to spend a boring summer at her grandma’s. But then she meets Wesley. He tells her exactly what she wants to hear and has information about her past that no one else knows. It’s almost like he can read her mind.
Only Wesley isn’t who he seems.
By the time Mackenzie discovers his true identity it may be too late. She’s in too deep and he won’t let her go. Now Mackenzie must call on the strongest power of all in order to save her life.


A loud monotonous chanting awakened me. I sat upright in bed, glanced around. The room was pitch-black. I wondered how come the bright streetlight wasn’t shining in my window like always and then I remembered I wasn’t home. The chanting quieted to barely above a whisper. I listened intently, honing in on the sound. The hairs on the back of my neck stood on end. I felt someone in my room. I heard someone breathing.

Sweat snaked down my back, my heart thumped in my chest. I froze, held my breath. As my eyes adjusted to the darkness I could make out shapes. I gasped when I saw the figure of a man. He was standing at the foot of my bed, looming over me.


Even if you are not a Christian I would still recommend that you read Prowl. It is a wonderfully written story about teenage girl who is lonely and troubled. It isn’t until later on do you come to see that something evil is now after her.

No one knows that Kenzie is a cutter and feels abandoned by her mom. With only her best friend to talk to (and she doesn’t tell her everything) Kenzie is shipped off to stay with her Grandma for the summer. Kenzie soon meets her grandma’s neighbors. On one side there is Rhiannon who reads auras and uses an Ouija board to talk to spirits. On the other side is Isaac who like Kenzie’s grandmother is a Christian.

Kenzie becomes aware that she has an evil spirit named Wesley after her and he won’t let go without a fight…

If you like YA Paranormal Romance there is no doubt that you will like Prowl by Amber Garza.
