Supernatural empathy isn't a gift, it's a curse. Anywhere she goes, Jade's emotions are replaced by those of the people around her.
Jade grew up in a suburb of Colorado Springs, protected from other people by her parents. Now she faces college--and the world--with nothing to shield her from unwanted feelings.
When Cam, a classmate with a major crush on her, unintentionally hijacks her emotions, Jade struggles to keep from being carried away in feelings of attraction. When Ethan, a psychopath with a thirst for fear, fixates on her, the emotional impact could be lethal.
Caught in a deadly trap, Jade must untangle the emotions and find a way to use her empathic curse to overcome this killer or be overcome by him.
Great start to the series! The author really brought out the feels in this one when it came to Jade and how she felt while dealing with sifting through other's emotions when she was being bombarded. I would personally feel trapped in my own body if it were me. And to a degree Jade is because she can't control the way she catches each and every person's mood that comes close enough. She has a hard time controlling it and no one except her parents and Professor Logan shield around her. I enjoyed the read and was surprised at the ending. The light horror added to the story by the serial killer rounded out the story well.
4 out of 5 stars!
