alwaysreadingAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Outstanding!February 10, 2014alwaysreadingAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 5Teenagers Becka and Scott Williams have spent most of their lives with their missionary parents in the jungles of Brazil. When their father suddenly dies, their mother packs them up and moves them back to the United States, to a small town called Crescent Bay California. But they soon find that all is not good in this seemingly peaceful town. As they try to figure out what is supernatural and what has a logical explanation, they find that they find they have a strange ally, the mysterious Z who seems to know all about them.
Dark Power is split into three separate stories;
The society, a group of high school kids that thrives on the occult, and they let Becka and Scott know that they will not tolerate their interference as the group experiments with a Quija board.
The Decieved tell the story of a charismatic speaker who tries to draw Becka in the world of reincarnation.
The Spell focuses on a group of teenagers dabbling in witchcraft, trying to get revenge on Becka for her meddling in their activities.
I loved this book. It isn't often that you come across a book for kids where the hero and heroine are pretty strong Christians. Although they make mistakes, and rightly so, they learn from them before moving on. I like that the author made them such strong role models, yet vulnerable at the same time. I think that a lot of kids could relate to them.
Although this is labeled as teen fiction which is usually the age group of 12 to 17 I would caution parents with kids on the younger side. You would probably want to read it first or at least with them.

The Dark Powers Collection is the first book in the set.
Becka and her brother Scott move to a new town. Having grown up on the mission field, it's their first time living in a regular USA place. Right away they stumble onto things that remind them of the witch doctors from South America, who worship demons. But when Scott meets up with members of The Society and their Ouija board, he needs to dig down deep into his faith to know how to face them.
Great story. I instantly liked Becka and Scott. They're fun, realistic Christian teens, who know just enough about their faith to get themselves into trouble. I enjoyed watching their struggle as they volleyed between keeping their mouths shut to make friends and speaking up for their faith. This is a fun story and one that will keep you thinking long after.
Maxwell Hunter, a hypnotist, comes to town and convinces Becka that she was a powerful person in a former life. Scott doesn't like the guy at all, but their mother is quite taken with him, so much that she goes out on a date with the guy! Scott is furious, and tries to figure out how to get his mom and sister to see that there is something wrong about this guy. But can he convince them before it's too late?
This story intrigued me. Just the idea how people can so easily convince themselves that something they know is wrong is okay. That even Christians will feed their pride rather than face the truth. It makes me wonder what in my life I might be feeding for my own pride. This was a scary one, so buckle your seatbelts!
The Society has had it with Becka and her brother Scott, so they place a spell on Becka, tying to shut her up for good. Becka finds creepy messages and dead animals in her path. She knows The Society is messing with her, and she knows they have no real power, but she's terrified of what they might do next! Scott, on the other hand, is completely distracted by a very pretty face.
This one might have been my favorite so far. I really like how it shows ways that Christians can be used and taken advantage of when they give into fear or temptation and forget who to trust. I think I read this one the fastest. These are GREAT books. All Christian teens must read! Can't wait for the next volume!
