The last four books in the much-adored Penn Friends series: The Rage of Penny, The Joy of Penny, The Darkness In Penny and The Penny Black. Welcome to the world of Penny Black! She is no ordinary girl. "People told me that what I could do was a gift–my special secret–but you know what? It was a curse." You are about to enter a world like no other, from a seasoned novelist writing a new series under a new pen name. In this second Boxset, we conclude Season One of the adventures of Penny and her incredible powers. Each book asks its own question. This edition asks: Is doing the right thing always a victim action? How does it feel to be truly known? How does it feel to be truly broken? Have you thought about death? Penny, as well as the readers, learns more and more about who she is, where she comes from and why she has powers––and maybe the biggest question of them all; is she alone? As Season One comes to a shocking conclusion, two worlds collide. Who and what will be able to walk away from the resulting chaos? Love for the series so far: Interesting read from the very start as the author takes you down the path of Penny’s inner thoughts. Lays bare the human nature very well and in an unusual read. Not my normal genre but found it to be a great read.

TH Paul through the voice of Penny herself and the narrator take us deep into the mind of an adolescent girl awakening to a power that is a true double-edged sword--a gift and a curse. The author paints clear pictures of her, her life, and those around her.

At one moment we emphasize with her and the next we are appalled at her behaviour. The story arc covers a number of years. It is complete and gives closure, but still, leaves you wanting to know more about Penny Black. I found this very entertaining and starting reading the second volume in the series as soon as it was available. The book is quite different from previous ones by the same author (under the real name). In some respects, it is like reading a different author except for the ability to paint a vivid picture with the written word. This is a great novella. Once I started I had to keep on going until the end. I adore Penny Black. She is so completely flawed that she becomes extremely endearing, despite having a dark side. Loved the way that Nothing goes as planned too. Some interesting moral dilemmas and a challenging look at the issue of revenge. The inconclusive end means I have to read the next one ... soon! T H Paul continues the sage of Penny and her powers.

While the premise is about the powers that Penny has it is really exploring the thoughts and actions of this teenage girl as she works through the typical issues that confront teens. With her powers, she comes up with some atypical solutions. Good fast read!I recommend that you read all the books in order so you can fully understand all that is happening in the story. The saga of Penny Black continues...even better than before - still limited by Amazon to only 5 Stars but obviously a best buy!
