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.

This Book is: Paranormal/Urban Fantasy Thriller
This book contains: Murder, Violence, Abuse and Romantic situations.

I want to thank Becca Campbell for giving me the opportunity to read and review Empath.

My Thoughts:

I really enjoyed Campbell’s writing style even though, I was not a fan of exploring the mind of a serial killer.  I did however really enjoy the twists and turns through out this book.  I for one really liked one of the characters until I found out that this person was not who I thought they were.  Jade are main protagonist was a little to wimpy and looks at her gift as a disability which I could totally sympathize with her because of her up bringing.  Although, I would have liked her a little more fierce.

There were times that I thought that the book was slow and lacked some explanation.  I did however enjoy the way Campbell wrote in alternating points of view.   This helped the story stay interesting even when it dragged a little.

Overall I really enjoyed this story even though I am not a fan of thrillers.  I loved the paranormal aspect and felt it really made this story fresh.  I am really looking forward to more books.
