Hello there, if you guys know anything about me, you got to know that I´m a huge fan of H.D. Gordon´s Alexa Montgomery Saga. When I heard that she had a book coming out soon, I wantedto know everything about it; you see, H.D. has this thing with cliffhangers that make me crazy for more.
anyway as the master stalker I´m becoming (snort) I started gathering all the info I could on this secret new title, that had nothing to do with her Alexa Saga. so I ended up being one of the first people to actually read it and I have to say i´ve never read something like this in my life.
Joe is seemingly an ordinary college student. She works, studies and reads. But in between these activities Joe has a gift that promises to add a dose of color to her life at any given moment. Joe sees things before they happen. Bad things, and the worst thing she has ever faced is just around the corner. Someone is planning a massacre at the college university that Joe attends, and the only person with a hope of stopping the pyschopath is her.
Oh, the beauty of foresight. More like a curse. Joe has four days to figure out the mystery, make plans to take down the pyscho, and save the lives of people. People like you and me. Ordinary people
To say that this book is something else, is an understatement.
Thrilling, Phenomenal, something never before seen;
yeah that´s more like it
When we meet Joe all we know of her is that, she experieced some things that changed her and for those first lines I couldn´t help but to wonder what was behind the sadness she poured on the pages of her diary.
You see Joe is different and im not talking a bout the fact that she stutters, Joe can see glimpses of bad things that will take place on the future and she makes it her mission to try and stop those thing form happening.
The most incredible thing about this book is that you get to meet several characters, you are inside their heads, inside their hearts, you get to know them as a person and really connect. They are normal people like you and me. Mothers, Fathers, sons, friends that have nothing in common other than the fact that they live and feel like we do and that they are about to experience something that would change them forever.
Since the first few pages when we start getting glimpses of the Decider´s mind ( he´s the bad guy) I got trapped it was like reading Hitchcook´s "The Lodger" or taking a dive at all the emotions that John Grisham´s " A time to Kill" inspired in me.
The Decider´s perspective is so strong comfident and evil, that I got chills every time, I could hear his voice in my head and I prayed. I prayed for all the people I´ve meet in this book to survive at the end and I prayed for everyone i know, that they would never encounter someone like him.
You see that´s the thing with this book, it´s so real that even though is a story, a magnificent story; you know that ´somewhere out there is someone as crazy as he is, you´ve heard stories about people like him and it´s well... plain scary if you ask me.
Guys this book is full of adrenaline, gritty, fast paced, it builds anticipation and has your emotions running at 100000 per hour. The suspense drived me to the edge time and time again.
I´ve got to be a honest here, I cried like a baby, I sobbed and hurt all over from the intensity of the emotions this book brought up witthin me.
This aint a good read this is The Read of 2012
