Editorial Reviews


"This was an exciting read, full of fast paced thrills, chills, and bittersweet love." ~ YA2Bok Reviews

From the Author

Fear makes Empaths fast. Anger makes them strong. Lust gives them control. When emotions grant superpowers, what does love mean?

Livvy has always been good at reading the emotions of people around her. When disaster strikes and she has to fight to survive, she learns her powers are so much more. She is an Empath.

Livvy meets others of her kind and is swept into a world that is everything she ever wanted. Or so she first thinks... When Livvy meets the Empaths' opposite, one with the ability to stop their powers from functioning, Livvy is caught up in a supernatural battle and must fight to save the life of the boy she loves. 

A quick, clean read full of non-stop action
Emotionally Charged is a paranormal romance for young adults and anyone who enjoys young adult fiction. It is a novella of 26,000 words, or 120 pages, about a third the length of a normal novel, plus also includes a bonus 5000 word short story about one of the characters!
Excerpt >>>
"So, what will I be doing?" I tried to sound brave.
Jake nodded to the other guys before coming back to my question. "Just watching. The fire fighters are working hard to get the fire under control before it spreads. There's some serious adrenaline and emotion involved in that, so just feel out the situation and see what you can use."
We were still a building or two away and I already felt warmth. I wondered if it was from the fire or the emotions of those fighting it. We ducked through a hole in a chain link fence to get close and observe from somewhere hidden so the officials wouldn't send us away.
"What would you guys normally be doing, if I weren't learning?"
"For a fire? Not really a lot we can do. If someone was inside I'd rush in for the save, but Empath powers don't really make us more effective at putting out flames." Jake smiled and winked. I wondered if I could rush into a burning building to save someone. Mouthing off at punks seemed altogether different. But I wanted to be someone who would do that.
The two story warehouse glowed like a jack-o'-lantern. I stared in awe at such destructive, beautiful power. Flames painted the walls and the heat scorched and dried my unprotected skin even from this distance. The smell was off, like bad eggs and car burn outs. Fortunately, most of the smoke blew the other way.
We watched the fire fighters doing their thing, calling orders back and forth, dragging hoses, working pumps on the truck. All knew their roles. They worked as a team. I'd be part of a team like that soon, but even better. I looked sidelong at Jake, his hair and skin glowing golden in the fire light. Part of his team.
Excess emotions flowed off the fire fighters and I made myself a magnet, letting power soak in through my pores.
Jake bumped my shoulder with his. "How are you feeling? Got the mojo yet?"
"Yeah, feeling good. Awesome even."
Jake held up his palm flat in front of me. "Give me your best shot."
Jake rolled his eyes. "And don't be holding back. We don't take wimps."
I raised an eyebrow and lifted my fist to the challenge. I could feel muscles tense and coil. The sensation and awareness, the pure power, made me feel drunk. I smacked my fist into his palm.
Jake whistled, dramatically shaking off the hurt. "Nice, some real potential there. How about a race?"
My imagination went on its own race into the future, Jake and me running through the deserted warehouses, giggling, speeding after each other, tumbling into a heap, our lips so close and then...
Something caught my eye over at the fire. My sight had improved as well, the way it had the night after I volunteered. A sheet of corrugated iron peeled itself off the roof, lifting under the hot gusts from the fire like a strange kite. It lingered in the air then fell in a deadly dive bomb straight at one of the fire fighters.
I didn't have to question anymore if I'd run to save someone. I just ran.

I have to say that I really liked the premise of Emotionally Charged. You have Livvy who seems like your typical teenager but with one exception, she can tell what people around her are feeling. She's never told anyone about that fact because she just wants to fit in but at the same time she's bored with her life. She craves romance, excitement, danger. Really she wants to be a hero and be appreciated. When an earthquake hits, her adventure begins.

Livvy unexpectedly meets a group of people just like her and she desperately wants to be apart of their group because she believes that with them she will finally have the life she's wanted. But all isn't as she expected.

Now I really enjoyed Selina's take on what being an empath meant and I liked the character of Livvy and how, despite how badly she wanted an exciting life, there were limits to what she would do to achieve it. Though there was a moment when she allowed herself to do something that she'd never under normal circumstances do, she quickly realized that if that is what it takes to get what she wants, it's not worth it.

Livvy meets Dean, whom I liked, and an unlikely friendship is formed. It was nice to finally see Dean open up to Livvy about his life, his past, and his feelings, which he hid from everyone including Livvy.

Now although I did like the story it felt like it started off slow to me but it did pick up. And the end ... well, it seemed to end in the middle of a conversation. I turned the page and there was no more story. I honestly wondered if what I was reading was a finished version or not but I got it from Smashwords and there was nothing there that stated it wasn't a complete work. So I was disappointed about that. I really felt like there could, and should, have been more.

Started reading this and didn't want to put it down. At first I was annoyed with the main character for just dropping everything and running away with strangers because that's stupid. Too many Young Adult books have a main female character who do that without questioning the other characters motives. Plus that projects an unsafe example to young people reading the book. It's not ok to run away with someone you just met! They could be crazy or violent or just creepy. Then as the story went on it became apparent that there was a reason for her running away with them that was beyond her control and she seeks to rectify that. So in the end I thoroughly enjoyed the book and wished it was longer. I liked the whole "Empath" thing because it was a different take on the whole supernatural young adult romance thing that is so popular. The book is fairly short and fast to read so it's easy to read in one sitting. So I highly recommend reading this.

A young girl finds she is an empath when a group of young people convince her to come with them and join their elite group, making her feel special, wanted, 'alive.' This group appears to be living the perfect life and they draw her in blindly. By the time she discovers they are not as they seem, she feels trapped and alone except for a boy she met who is a 'blocker'...I absolutely loved the idea for the story. The execution fell short with too many unrealistic 'leaps of faith' on the part of Livvy. This short story needs to be fleshed out with more attention to detail and flow. That said, there is a huge potential for this story, but it just didn't reach it.

While I liked the premise of the story, I felt that the characters were very hollow and the storyline, rushed. Where two pages may be spent developing a shopping trip's purchases, a major plot point would only get a paragraph if that, and it made the story seem all bark and no bite to be found, which is unfortunate. With as many excellent options as the story began with for further development, it petered out quickly and the multiple "deus ex machina" moments leaves the reader scoffing even at this reach of fiction.

I had high hopes, but there just wasn't enough development to what could have been a great read.

I really liked the concept of these super-powered teens. The whole realm of empaths and "blockers" really drew me in, but I wish the book was longer so the author could have really explored all of the ideas presented here. I was slightly disappointed because the story felt rushed, and there wasn't much explanation for the origin of their abilities. Since this is part of the Empath Chronicles, I hope that more of the back story will be explained in future publications.

Selina Fenech has definitely got the imagination and the writing ability that combines to make a good book.
While not as intense as her first novel 'Memory's Wake', Emotionally Charged is a great quick read with the undercurrent of a moral lesson.
A great way to fill in travel time on the train or plane.

I'm a huge fan of Selina's work - both her painting and her writing. I was really drawn in by Memory's Wake. And as an aspiring fantasy artist, her work is inspirational, to put it really simply.

So it wasn't really a question of if I would read Emotionally Charged, but when. And I'm really glad I did!

I don't think I'm biased, honestly! I know what I appreciate in my reading, and what bugs me. So I think I'd pick up if there were any stand-out elements I'd have come constructive criticism for.

The premise isn't one that's unfamiliar - girl called Livvy dreams of a life of adventure. When an earthquake hits her town, she's thrown into the almost electric excitement of danger and the chance to help people. But it's not all that it seems.

Livvy is a great character. She's human, has a nice quotient of flaws and features to her personality, but remains somewhat of an anchor for the whole storyline. Just when you think she'll get way out of control, there's a snap back to some kind of reality. That's what I think I really enjoyed about this novella. It was that I was getting anxious, wondering how far into `crazy' the situation was going to get. I was swept up with it. And that's always a sign of a good read!

The supporting list of characters works to make that reality, almost panicky tilt, and dump Livvy into the middle of it. The premise of the Empaths, stunningly beautiful creatures with the ability to take human emotion and channel it into physical strength and energy, is something I find refreshing and new. There's a note on that: I'm reasonably well read in the fantasy genre, so if it's been done before, I just simply don't know about it, hehe.
