I'm trying to find a book I read as a young boy mid 90's to very early 2000's, I believe. It featured a team of teen humans who had the ability to transform into various supernatural creatures.

I believe the setting was based in the United States or at least North America.

I remember vividly two characters:

  1. There was a lycanthrope , I remember a name... which is either Kodiak or Kody/Cody. I believe this character also had a love interest within the team.

  2. There was a character who was stereotype alien-like (thin with large head), but I believe was a ghoul or demon of some sorts that is noted to cause accidents in North America. I cannot quite remember if this was a creature in the fictional universe or one of the teens could transform into it. I believe it might be the Dover Demon.

I also remember that the cover, the first few or last pages or so had a list of the creatures and short profiles.

  • have you had any luck? ive been trying to think of the same book i think but cant find it!

There's two posibilities I know of:

  • Animorphs. A team of human teens (and one alien) able to shapeshift into different animals, battling an alien invasion. Not supernatural entities, but it does take place in the USA.
  • Switchers. Human teens able to shapeshift into supernatural characters. Takes place in Ireland, though.

No Kodiak/Kody/Cody, though, I'm afraid.

  • Thanks Dr McCoy, It wasn't the animorphs and it doesn't seem to be switchers either.

Might be the Mind Warp series, the first book was called Alien Terror.

  • Not the Mind warp series. Thanks however for a potential good read.

This sounds like the Strange Forces series, which was a spin-off of the Strange Matter series. Hope this is what you're looking for!

    Can you provide any sources or links to your story? Or any bits of text that show its similarities.
