The Girl in the Box series is a successful novel series written by a prominent American author named Robert J. Crane. This series is based on the young adult and urban fantasy genres. It consists of 10 books in total, which were released between the years 2012 and 2014. All the books of this series follow the life events of the central character named Sienna Nealon. At the start of the series, Sienna is introduced as a young girl, who is locked in her own house by her mom and is made to stay inside for more than 10 years. In all these years, Sienna Nealon’s contact from the outside world is withdrawn. She does not have any knowledge about what happens outside. The only form of entertainment that Sienna Nealon has inside her is in the form of her television set. And that too, she is not allowed to touch it or watch anything on it without the permission of her mother. After being inside for around 12 years Sienna’s mother suddenly vanishes. Soon after, a couple of men arrive at Sienna’s house and seeing no one else in the house they try to take advantage of her. However, they experience a great surprise when they see that Sienna Nealon has great fighting skills and super strength. She kicks and overcomes the men and manages to escape. However, shortly after coming out of her house Sienna discovers that she has landed in a much bigger problem. She comes to know that there is a psychotic beast known as Wolfe, who is hunting her. Wolfe seems so desperate to catch Sienna Nealon that he will go to any length to bring her under his control. In each of the books of the urban fantasy series, Sienna is seen dealing with some kind of super-powered or paranormal threat. In addition to this, a shadowy organization called Omega is trying to hunt her down and it is being assisted by some allies who are called by the name, the Directorate.

As the novel series moves ahead, the relationship of Sienna Nealon with all these organizations keeps on changing. Each and every book appears to move the things in the forward direction in some or the other way. The answers to the questions related to the overarching story that runs throughout the series is also given later in the plots. As far as the character sketch of Sienna Nealon is considered, she is shown to be having an edge because of whatever she has experienced in her life. But, with the later books, she appears to have softened as compared to what she was at the series’ beginning. Sienna Nealon is still quite young even when the series is about to come to its end. However, her maturity level increases effectively. All the things that happen in her life teach her a lesson or two about the way of living her life, and thus she become mature enough to differentiate between what is right for her and what is not. Sienna Nealon even commits certain mistakes and learns from them. She becomes wiser and emotionally mature than what she was initially. The world in which Sienna lives is just a normal one like the real world. People go through their everyday activities, their jobs, return home, enjoy TV, and exist in a normal life. But, there are certain people, who have special powers, which cannot be explained by the normal of the scientific knowledge possessed by humans. Such people are described by author Robert Crane as having been around for more than several thousand years. They have been involved with the with the development of humanity at various levels. According to author Crane, this series’ books fit into the urban fantasy or paranormal fantasy genre in a better way. However, he has added a few other elements that make the depict the aspect of the thriller genre is some novels of this series. The overall series appears to be very episodic. Therefore, it will be a good idea to begin the series from its first book and then continue further in the ascending order. The books fit best to appeal to all those readers, who like vampire stories, but look for some twists in the plot. Author Crane has mentioned several mystical creatures as well as people who have much more power than the humans. This adds a definite paranormal touch to this series.

An initial book written by Robert Crane in this well known series is entitled ‘Omega’. It was released by the Reikonos Press in the year 2013. At the start of the story of this book, author Crane has described a secret organization called Omega, which is similar to the power of the metahuman world. This organization has been hunting Sienna since the first day she came out of her house. The agents of this deadly organization have killed numerous operatives and agents of the Direcorate. Now, the organization has unveiled its greatest plot known as the Operation Stanchion. These words were spoken in the ears of Sienna Nealon by an operative of Omega, who was very much scared to speak them loudly. This makes Sienna chase down the pieces that the Omega has set in motion. She goes on a journey to the upper mid-west in order for confronting the forces which have plagued her from the day she entered into the world of metahumans. While on the way, Sienna Nealon realizes that she must race against time and find out what the Omega is planning before the organization lands its final stroke and destroys the Directorate completely.

Another exciting book of the Girl in the Box novel series is called ‘Legacy’. The Reikonos publication released this book too in 2013.
