Review by: Elizabeth Barbarick on Jan. 02, 2014 :
What is the book about?

Miki is a sixteen year old artist who has made it famous. Not only is she talented as an artist, she is also a psychic who can feel people's emotional and physical pain.

It's when she accidentally feels the murder of a NYU student, who has an interesting job on the side. Now she draws attention to herself and now the killer if after her! She must hunt down this killer in order to stop the threats on her and her family.

What did I think of the book?

Miki is in search of answers and she will get them even if it means lying with false ID's and alias's. She is clearly a character that can take care of herself since she's basically been on her own for so long, a curse to having con-artists for parents. She's still a kid though, passing out drunk on the street because no one is there for her as a parent, she finds herself in quite a few sticky situations.

I found myself quite frustrated while reading this book since it seemed like Miki was making all the wrong decisions. She really needs parents or some guidance in her life. She made life way harder than it had to be, in order to save herself from the killer, without the help from detectives. That's either one really brave or really stupid girl.
I give this book

Review by: Madame Diotte on Sep. 15, 2012 :
I believe that this novel could use a bit more proofing, but I did enjoy the plot. Of course, it does get quite dark and there is a lot of profanity, but you can't help but want to read it to the end to discover if your initial suspicions were correct. I especially love how the writer maintains suspense all the way to the end.

An interesting read, especially good for a first in series. There are lots of questions to be answered and more to learn about the main character. Well written and enjoyable.

3 STARS I liked the story idea, the characters but hated all the profanity. So I would rate a lot higher except for that. Miki Radicci is a 16 year old living with her grandfather and friend. She is an artist makes a lot of money. She drinks way to much. She was made an adult from the state. She is psychic and feels the violence around her. She is on the street when she felt someone stabbed to death. The police questions her about the death. Miki wants to find and stop the man who killed Kathaleen and herself in that dark alley. The killer knows who she is and sends email to her. Miki meets a rich collage student after the funeral for Kathaleen. Christopher and the next day he shows up at her art showing. The story has a few surprises that I did not see. I like it that way. I was given this ebook by author in exchange for honest review.

Action packed and worth the read. This would be a great beach or pool read. Kept my interest and I read it in a day. Loved all of the characters. Wish it would have gone more into the background of why she drinks though.

This was such a great book. More of a YA novel, but as a middle-aged woman, I still really enjoyed it! Great plot, great characters, action, suspense and a bit of fantasy are all part of this book. I would definitely recommend this to anyone!
