Synopsis (provided by the author website):
Winner of the 2011 Forward National Literature Award
She reads minds.
He controls minds.
Together, they might get out alive.
Sam thinks she’s months away from freedom. After spending her life in a secret school, rented out to the rich and powerful as a paranormal spy, she is ready to head to college like any normal eighteen-year-old.
Only Sam isn’t normal. She reads minds. And just before her big going-away party, she links to the mind of a young man who changes everything.
Drake wasn’t raised as a ‘Rent-A-Kid.’ He was kidnapped and taken there by force. But his exceptional physical strength and powers of mind control make him very dangerous, especially to Sam.
When they meet, Sam is forced to face the truth of her situation, and to acknowledge that not all is as it seems in her picture-perfect world. For what awaits her on her eighteenth birthday isn’t a trip to college, but an unexpected nightmare from which she may not be able to escape.
To survive, they must work together.
But will their powers be enough to save them before it’s too late?
First thought: A fast paced paranormal thriller that kept me hanging on every word and dying for the next book!
The break-neck pace made it hard to put down, and I finished it in a day. I easily sympathized with the characters and their paranormal powers were intriguing. I have to admit, that the author threw me for a loop with what I considered a HUGE twist. I was like, “Whoa! Did she really just go there?!” But after that brief reaction I realized it totally fit with the story she was telling.
I was captivated by Sam, the main character who can read minds, but the clincher was the mental connection between her and Drake. The feats they accomplish together are amazing and creepy at the same time. I mean, mind reading and control? CREEPY! But I loved it! If you like paranormal thrillers you’ll enjoy this one.
And good news! It’s going to be a series! Forbidden Fire is coming soon! I absolutely can’t wait!
