For years Cameron has hidden behind a facade of normalcy, warned that there are those who would do her harm. When gorgeous and mysterious Lewis Douglas arrives he destroys everything Cameron has ever believed and tempts her with possibilities of freedom. Determined to embrace her hidden talents, Cameron heads to a secret haven with Lewis; a place where she meets others like her, Mind Readers.
But as Cameron soon finds out some things are too good to be true. When the Mind Readers realize the extent of Cameron’s abilities, they want to use her powers for their own needs. Cameron suddenly finds herself involved in a war in which her idea of what is right and wrong is greatly tested. In the end she’ll be forced to make a choice that will not only threaten her relationship with Lewis, but her very life.
Bee on Books:
That’s sweet: Young adult romance is not what I usually read. But I do love a good paranormal story and this one has all the components of good entertainment: A troubled teenage girl with a special talent that she does not know how to use yet. A gorgeous looking stranger coming in when a murder happened and then both of them run of into unexpected adventures. But it really does not end how you expect it. I love books that give me a surprise in the end and even though I do not feel it is an amazing book I am looking forward to reading the second part “The Mind Thieves”.
That stings: I found the characters not quite convincing. Lori Brighton does not exactly use cliches in her characters, but there are parts that just do not add up. I could not quite figure out what it was though.
And the honey of it all?
It’s not an amazing book, but good entertainment something you want to read in your lunch break or after a long day at school or uni or after a hard days work. And expect to be surprised which I think is always a good thing.
Dear Butterfly-O-Meter readers!
Nice to meet you. I feel honoured to be part of the Butterfly-O-Meter team and can’t wait to bring you more reviews of some interesting books. However, this is the first, and I think it might be a good idea to explain my set-up of my reviews.
As my nickname is Bee, I have decided to stay with the theme and do bee-things here: You will find a short sentence how I found the book at the beginning that is called “In a buzz”. Good aspects of books will be in a section called “That’s sweet” but if there are aspects of the book I do not like they will be found in “That stings”. In the end will be a summary that I have called “And the honey of it all?”.
So here is the first and I hope you enjoy it.
