Spirit-speaker. Death Seer.
To preserve her sanity, Jemma lives her lie—that she is normal. As a child, her psychic gifts cost her everything. So when she foresees a woman’s murder, she does nothing to prevent it and unwittingly helps a serial killer get away with another murder.
Guilt-ridden, she reports the crime only to find herself thrown into a world she didn’t know existed. Coerced into working with the police, battling to keep herself alive and dealing with newfound emotions, Jemma is forced to use the gifts she sees as a curse, to save the lives of others.
No. No. No.
Okay listen, I like psychic books as much as the next person but this book was just, you guessed it, no.
It’s about a woman who can see when people will die if she touches them and if they are close to dying. She can also see ghosts.
Okay, so far you are like,
“What’s the problem Snow, this sounds cool?”
Wait! I’m not done.
Jemma is basically recruited by a Psychic CIA and she is forced to relive horrific images of people being murdered by a bossy pants detective.Why?
BECAUSE HE SAYS SO!
In hope that it would help them save some lives. When in honesty her suffering was useless and had no effect what so ever to her strengths and capabilities. It was just mental torture with the hope that the main character would seem strong. Instead, she complained. Complained about everything. I mean being tortured does suck, I’ll admit, but you know what sucks more? Me having to read for pages and pages how much you are suffering. I get it. It’s bad.
Snow is already reading that you are being tortured and the suffering you are going through is emphasized through the entire book you don’t have to tell Snow again how bad it really is, Snow gets it. It’s bad.
It was like watching one of those plays where all the actors are trying too hard. The romance scene is screaming at you to feel the romance. The depressing scenes are yelling at you to cry.
Honestly, it was over dramatic and just confusing. I’m still not sure if it had a sad ending or a happy ending.
I am changing it up. I am not giving reasons why I liked it or did not like it. I’m a rebel now.
