What a great surprise to read a refreshingly fun novel that fits in a variety of genres! The first few pages had me afraid Ted and friends were going to go from decent people into whiney or spoiled teenagers – like normal teenagers. Full of anxiety, anger, “me” or the variety of moods teenagers go through until they figure out themselves. I found just the opposite in this book. I grew to like the nerdy geeks, the princesses, the over-achievers. I started rooting for the teens as they not only fought the enemy, but tried to figure out life, love and where they fit in the world. The story left so many cliff-hangers I’m actually watching for book 2 to come out. Bryan Cohen has produced a wonderfully fun story that grabbed me, kept me guessing and hating to see the last page appear. I enjoyed the fresh take on possession, light and dark beings, and teens in general. There was no expected outcomes, good people were lost and a few of the baddies remain to visit again. While this is a book that did not keep me up at night, I couldn’t wait to grab the kindle first thing the next morning to keep reading. I can see this book appealing to so many readers – young adult, paranormal, romance, suspense, etc. There is humor as well as some sole searching, some sadness and much joy. Lots of action and fighting, some gentle romance, and some really great writing. There was no noticeable grammar mistakes or errors which says so much about how much effort Mr. Cohen put into his novel. Many books at this price leave me wanting to find a pen and start correcting it, or are quickly written and not thought out. Mr. Cohen has created something that I can recommend and eagerly look forward to more.

Ted’s the unlikely hero: the awkward schoolkid granted super-powers without warning, and confronted with a cafe robbery that has more than a hint of alien interference.

When an old-flame, previously missing, whereabouts unknown, comes back from the dead and equipped with her own set of unique powers, the stage is set for an exciting – and funny – race to save the world.

Lots of excellent characters and a fast-paced storyline make Ted Saves The World a great read. Bring on the series*!

* This book is totally readable as a standalone. I thought I’d mention that, as so many ‘first in a series’ books end in a giant cliffhanger with no story resolution. The story in Ted is resolved, but the series is clearly just beginning and it will be interesting to see what this crazy group of characters get up to.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Read! August 17, 2014

Ted isn’t the guy that is picked first for the dodge ball game, but is totally the guy I would pick to be a hero. He is kind and generous and willing to do anything for those he loves. He has a good group of quirky friends that would also do anything for him. I mean let’s be honest. A super hero is only as good as the people he calls friend.
I really enjoyed this book. When I first read the synopsis I wasn’t sure about it. When I started reading that quickly changed. It was a really fun read. There is humor, super powers, suspense, action and even a little romance. I look forward to reading more of Ted’s adventures.
I definitely recommend this to anyone who is a fan of paranormal/YA sci-fi/fantasy. Although this is the first in a series, it can be read as a stand alone book. The author leaves it open at the end for the possibility but everything is resolved and your not left going “What!?!?!”I received this book free for my honest review.
