Poor Camelia. Ever since Ben has come into her life things have gone on a downward spiral. First there was the whole situation with Matt, then Debbie Marcus, and now this.

Discovering she had a psychometric ability was hard enough to deal with. But then she begins sculpting Adam's body parts - his eyes, his lips - for reasons she doesn't understand. All she knows is that her sculptures must mean something, but what?

Is it because their almost-kiss is her regret? Or could it be something else - a premonition that Adam is in danger? Even if it means losing Ben, her soul-mate, the only person who can truly understand her abilities, is she willing to put Adam's life at risk?

***

Deadly Little Games is the third book in the Touch series by author Laurie Faria Stolarz. This book is another nail-biting mystery in a series whose main character, Camelia, has the psychometric ability to discern certain future events through her art - sculpting, in specific.

As the series has progressed, we learn more about Camelia's ability, where it has originated, and just how accurate it truly is. Her ability has been both a gift and a curse. While it has gotten her into these situations, it has also enabled her to solve them.

Each book in the series is fast-paced and exciting, with twists and turns that leave you guessing until the very end. Deadly Little Games is no exception. Somewhere between the hidden meaning behind her sculptures and the mysterious crossword clues, lies the answer to the deadly little game that only Camelia, Kimmie and Wes seem willing to play.

For fans of this series, this installment will not disappoint. As the puzzle continues to grow, so does the tension between Camelia and Ben over her involvement with Adam.

This book, as the other reviewers claimed, was very good and somewhat frustrating all in one. It was refreshing to watch Camelia grow up a bit as a person, as well in regards to her powers. Many of the other characters inlcuding Wes and Kimmie were finally getting the development that they truly deserved.

I was surprised first of all that the book takes place so close after the last; however, I found it refreshing that Adam came back and did not simply dissappear. Some of the book such as the transcripts and some of the crossword puzzles were extremely obvious but still enjoyable. I loved the developement of Aunt Alexia and am looking forward to how Stolarz addresses her in the next book.

I found Ben somewhat frustrating since his character was not particularly dynamic or interesting until the very end. There was very little about him included besides for his "bad feeling" that he sensed. I did enjoy some of the scenes that he was in otherwise. The ending of course was frustrating and I hope that Ben becomes more dynamic again in the next book and I hope that him in Camelia get things worked out. I find their attitude about their relationship frustrating, but it wouldn't be a good book if Stolarz made everything perfect for them and didn't frustrate the reader just a little....

I have been a fan of Stolarz's for some years now and have found this book to fall right in line with what I loved about her BIFN series and the other two books in this series. This book by far did NOT dissappoint and I am extremely excited for the release of Deadly Little Voices in November 2011. The plot change was great as was the character development and the perfectly frustrating ending (Ben and Cam), Stolarz just keeps adding to my expectations! This book is a must read for any fan of any of her books.

I really enjoyed the first books of the series and was a little disappointed by how predictable this book was. There was little suspense involved and the book should have focused more on Camelia's Aunt to really get the reader engaged. The usual pattern of Camelia lying to her parents and hiding things just makes the book feel like a repeat of the previous books instead of something fresh.

Discovering her new psychometric abilities has been hard for our poor little Chameleon. (Her nickname, which I love!) Not only does she not understand her abilities or when she sculpts "premonitions" from the future, but she also fears that she will not be able to handle it and will end up crazy because of it like her Aunt Alexia.

Camelia and Ben are back to sort of dating again (not really clear to me) even though he is STILL keeping secrets. Soon Camelia starts sculpting thing about Ben's ex-best friend Adam, (and Camelia's almost ex-boyfriend) like his eyes and lips. Even worse is the fact that when Ben touches her, he can sense that Camelia has been thinking a lot about Adam and he starts pulling away again.

Turns out that through her sculptures, Camelia can sense that Adam is in danger. But will she help him and risk her relationship with Ben? Ben agrees that helping Adam is right thing to do, but he doesn't want to get involved. As Camelia and Adam spend more time together as she tries to find clues as to who might want to hurt him, she and Ben start drifting further apart. Will she be able to save Adam in time? And how much is she willing to risk doing so?

A big problem I have with this series it that even though Camelia and Ben have some great moments, there aren't that many and their relationship never seemed that serious. I still find more chemistry between Camelia and Adam and I'm sort of leaning on Adam's side.

The story was great because for once Camelia wasn't the one in danger so it wasn't a repeat of the last two books. The book is a quick read and the mystery and suspense are great. Even better are the crossword puzzles in between chapters that are left for Adam. They are ridiculously easy (that's the point).
