Embraced by mature readers as well as the young adult community, The Urban Boys has been called “The Hardy Boys for this generation,” and “By far the best YA paranormal I have read in a long time,” by bloggers, teachers, reviewers, and everyday readers. It offers a rich, lyrical read, unlike many YA novels seen today, and stretches the imagination of those seeking a deeper reading experience. Established in the Young Adult and Adult Action-Adventure categories alike, The Urban Boys is an action-adventure/paranormal story about five teen boys who are mysteriously exposed to a foreign energy source that gives them extremely heightened senses. Sight, sound, touch, taste, and smell become hypersensitive gifts that forever change the world. The story exposes the testing of their deep bonds as the boys face furious battles while on a special journey, but they must find a way to embrace their fate. A lurking, dark stranger seems to know their plight, and a strikingly beautiful yet fearless girl lends way to heightened confusion. Shocking details about these two characters, and Druth, the evil antagonist, twist and grind the story even further. "The Urban Boys hits the ground running and never looks back. Author K.N. Smith uses her mastery of the written word to weave an entrancing, yet powerful tale of bonding, loyalty, and adventure that keeps you turning pages in an unquenchable desire to find out what happens next. The author’s matchless prose details cinematic fight sequences and fully developed characterizations especially in a final, stupendous scene that will take your breath away and leave you limp with spent emotions. 5 stars for this imaginative and inspiring story!" said Don Sloan of Publishers Daily Reviews. In addition to the launch of the audiobook version, the e-book version of The Urban Boys: Discovery of the Five Senses, available at,, the Apple iBookstore and other e-book outlets, goes on sale today for $0.99 for a limited time. The saga continues with the next book in the series available in the spring of 2017. For media inquiries, please contact K.N. Smith at (916) 288-8466, via email to, or visit
