Insight (1)

Insight (Shadows #1)

by Jolene Perry 

Release Date: 09/03/12

Paperback/e-book

367 pages

 

Summary from Goodreads:

Micah hates her ability to “see” things when she touches people. She’s terrified of relationships, holds on to guilt over the death of her classmate, Lacey, and has no idea what to do with a vision from Landon, a boy from her school. She feels him falling for her, but Micah doesn’t do friends, much less relationships.

Enter a spooky history project about a tragedy from three hundred years ago, and voodoo dolls that Micah somehow feels has to do with her gift. Suddenly she’s sure the shadows in the woods are following her every move—without Landon’s relaxed attitude about what’s happening in her life, Micah would be sure she’s going crazy.

With no ideas on timing or specifics, the visions of both herself and the people she cares about are turning dark—and it appears the shadows around her house do move on their own. But as Micah and Landon try to prevent Micah’s visions of the future, the shadows close in, and they’re now afraid they’ve become the cause…

Micah’s story is the first of three girls, with unique talents, who are part of a 300 year old tragedy that follows them in the shadows.

Manipulation (Shadows #2)

by Jolene Perry 

Release Date: January 2013

Paperback/e-book

 

Summary from Goodreads:

Addison Prince has almost always gotten what she wants.
Dean Courser only wants to find his brother, but it’s the one thing he’s failed at… Even with his unusual ability.

Dean and Addison share the gift of Manipulation—a brief touch that forces others to do what they wish. But when they meet and realize their connection, they find more questions than answers. Suddenly Dean is seeing shadows move on their own, and Addison is learning her father’s mysterious group may know more about her abilities than he’s ever let on.

As Dean and Addison second-guess every decision about who they are and why they’re wanted, time is running out. With shadows following their every move, they’re losing hope they’ll ever get to safety—if such a thing exists.

What did I think?

You had me at Indy YA Paranormal!!

Jolene Perry knows how to write character-driven stories that pull you in. The writing was just so smooth, that I couldn’t help but finish this story in one sitting! I mean, special powers and shadows? All of this amped up the tension and made me want more! Will I be reading the next book, Seeker? Absolutely!

jolene perryAbout the Author

Jolene kissed a boy on her high school graduation night. One she’d wanted to kiss for a long time. They got married two years later, have built two homes together, survived military deployments, law school, student loan debt, and two children.

 

Jolene plays the guitar, takes pictures, and loves to hike. She doesn’t like rivers, but loves the ocean. She loves to fly, but gets motion sick. Her ultimate vacation would be to sail through the deserted islands in The Bahamas. Two years ago, she got that wish when her parents retired on a sailboat.

 

She taught high school French when she was only a few years older than her students, and then taught middle school math with her degree in political science and French.

She spends grocery money on designer fabric, shoes, and books.

 

Jolene cannot express how many times she wished she could write a whole novel. And now she has. Several times. Life is good.
