    Fluttering Thoughts:

    Worldbuilding: I loved the round-the-world trip Killfile took me on. It was a fun mix of spooks, businesspeople, and diverse environments.
    Characters: John Smith is a very interesting character. I mean, for one thing, he reads minds. You can’t beat the awesomeness of that. I know what you’re thinking, but he can influence minds too! So, so fun xDD He’s got a fitting superiority complex, but come on, the man can do stuff the rest of us mortals can only dream about, lol. He has a great snarky sense of humor, a passionate side, and despite his attempts to seem otherwise, also has a soft side. And I loved watching him go about his business, lol.
    I really liked him around Kelsey too, I won’t lie. There’s not a real romance there, I mean it’s not a romanticized getting together story, but they do get together and it’s kinna cute in places, especially toward the end there when feels xDDDD
    Plot: The good mix of suspense and mystery is pretty thrilling, no doubt. There’s action, adventure, some feels, and all with a paranormal twist that makes everything all the better, ofc. The story was fun and eventful without becoming dizzying, and I had a great time reading it.
    Writing: First person, present&past tense narrative. The current train of events is present, past events/flashbacks are past. I’m not a huge fan of mixing them up, but it wasn’t annoying.
    Curb Appeal: Cool cover, hooking blurb – thriller craving impulsive buy material.

    I recommend Killfile to fans of thrillers with a supernatural (mind reading/influencing) twist, and to fans of snarky ex-military MCs who kick ass. Killfile is current politically, fun, and exciting. I say read it!
