Cameron has to struggle with her beliefs of right and wrong. She contends with her Grandmother's wishes to keep who & what they are a secret as well. In the beginning of this book, I found Cameron to be a little bit annoying. She had a tendency to be whiny while only using her gift to be friends with the most popular kids in school. Finally, in the middle of the book, Cameron starts showing some back bone and begins to stand up for herself. I love the way the author keeps you guessing throughout the entire book.
Cameron grows up so much from the beginning to the end of this book. She finally realizes the kind of person that she wants to be. I found myself heart broken along with Cameron when she finally makes a decision concerning Lewis. The author does a great job of making you feel the emotions of Cameron. I liked that more than just the main character is complex.
Lets talk a little bit about the other characters in this great book. Lewis is very surprising to me. He has such amazing depths to his character. Maddox had my attention from the first minute that he was introduced in this book.Read more ›
When I was in the fourth grade my teacher posed a very interesting question. "Think about this long and hard" she said to us while scribbling the question across the chalkboard. "Because...no matter your answer, there are always repercussions."
The question was: "If you could have ANY super-power, what would it be and why?"
Not such difficult a question right? Wrong. See, the tricky part comes in the second part of her statement, not necessarily the question itself. "There are always repercussions."
Now, being in the fourth grade I didn't really concern myself with the inevitable repercussions Ms. Keister was referring to. I picked "Stop Time" because I wanted to check out (very stealthily) the really cute boy in the front of the class, but as I got older I finally started to understand the meaning of the original question, and why she worded it the way that she did. It was to teach a lesson; that regardless of how invincible we think we are, not matter our strength, our abilities or our beauty...everything you do or say will cause and action an a re-action.
The reason I bring this up (besides it being a very convenient tie-in) is because Cameron from "The Mind Readers" (by Lori Brighton) had to learn this the hard way. She was given a gift, and if used incorrectly, this gift had very horrifying repercussions.
Cameron Winters is a freak. Fortunately, no one but her family knows the truth ...that Cameron can read minds. For years Cameron has hidden behind a facade of normalcy, warned that there are those who would do her harm. When gorgeous and mysterious Lewis Douglas arrives he destroys everything Cameron has ever believed and tempts her with possibilities of freedom.Read more ›
First sentence: "The man sitting across from me at the cafe was thinking about murdering his wife."
Favorite sentence: "Butterflies fluttered in my stomach, sighing with oppressed lust, those little sluts."
Funny sentence: "Sure enough, there were two of Aaron's guards with guns pointed at Maddox's gorgeous head. Surprise, Surprise."
Last sentence: "Whether you believe me or not, Sweetheart, I'm pretty much the only thing standing between you and death."
Honestly, I liked the first half of this book and loved the rest of it. I wasn't the hugest fan of Cameron's love interest in the beginning, so when option 2 entered the picture, things finally started to head in the right direction. The ending of this book was a total mind explosion and I loved how she left me hanging.
Overall, Lori Brighton, has an exquisite talent when it comes to writing paranormal. All of the sections dealing with mind reading were such an adventure to comprehend. Her descriptions were intense and well-thought out for something that technically doesn't exist. I felt that my attachment to the characters, with the exception of Maddox, fell a little short, but her storyline & ending made-up for that.
I wholeheartedly look forward to DEVOURING book #2 and I have a funny feeling the whole shebang will just get better. I would definitely recommend reading this and even though I got it for free, it's worth paying for.
