It is evident Ms. Campbell is a talented writer. Her style is subtle, descriptive, and direct. She doesn't ramble on with useless words yet her style is smooth with solid bare bones grabbing your attention. Remove the paranormal factor the writing and plot can hold its own. I commend Ms. Campbell for writing a story NOT containing profanity, sexual content or graphic blood and gore details and it worked well. Subtle references to God were made only enhancing the story and characters.
The characters were well developed especially since they varied in age and occupation. My only criticism is too many "gifts" were bestowed among the characters, just my opinion.
The plot was extremely original, another reflection of Ms. Campbell's talent. The story line had just the right content of paranormal to tantalize without going overboard.
The writing, characters and plot married well making Empath a good read. I have no doubt Empath with be a hit with YA and adult fans of paranormal thrillers. Ms. Campbell has a bright future ahead, not lacking originality and solid writing skills.
Luckily for Jade her parents made sure to keep her as isolated as possible growing up as a child; but at the same time they unfortunately they didn’t do anything in preparing her for the time she might leave the nest to go to college. There, she now needs to learn how to set up some sort of protective barrier from the emotions and feeling those around have. Instead of merely feeling other people’s emotions these emotions are ruling her as she becomes their emotions.
Once Jade started going to class the multitude of emotions from her classmates: nervousness, excitement, rage, fear and frustration made her relatively helpless since she hadn’t developed any sort of barrier to shield herself. Luckily she was able to gather some classmates to help her gather the knowledge she needed to begin to protect herself.
All is comparatively fine, fine that is until a psychopath, named Ethan, develops a fascination for Jade and the feeling of fear she’s constantly emitting because of the lack of control over that emotion. You wind up with a showdown, either Ethan will possess Jade or Jade must use the empathic curse she was born with to overcome him.
This book is full of emotions and is a captivating, fast paced read due to the practically flawless writing of the author for which I given the author 5 STARS.
I really had to debate with myself over how many stars to give Empath by Becca J. Campbell. It wasn’t easy to settle on three stars, so try to keep an open mind when I explain why—this was not a light decision.
Technically speaking, the story was well-written. There were very few noticeable typos, the narrative was easy-to-read and flowed well, and the dialog seemed natural. All good things. My only gripe about the technical aspect of the story is that the structure didn’t work for me and wouldn’t have worked in any other way at the same time. Let me explain:
The POVs in this book switched between that of the main character, Jade, to some of the lesser characters (like Cam and Logan), but at the end of every chapter also switched to Ethan. Here’s the problem: Ethan is a psychopath. It wasn’t fun to see the timeline from his point of view. He was creepy (as well he should be) but I wasn’t able to sympathize with him or understand him. His particular motives for being a serial killer weren’t clear, nor was his obsession with Kelsey. Frankly, I didn’t like reading his POV, but the story wouldn’t have carried on had his POV been absent.
Other than one mention where Jade felt Ethan close by in a parking lot, she didn’t interact with him until the very end of the story. From her POV, it didn’t feel like she was being stalked. There was no threat. Had Ethan’s POV been left out, the story would have completely fallen apart. For me, the structure didn’t work. I felt like I should have been fascinated or in some way compelled to read Ethan’s POV.Read more ›
