Review ~ Insight by Jamie Magee

TITLE: Insight
AUTHOR: Jamie Magee
COPYRIGHT: 7/10/2010
PAGES: 314
TYPE: fantasy
SERIES:  yes book 1


Accidently read book 1 first and couldn’t make heads or tails of it so decided to move on to the first one LOL

SUMMARY (from Goodreads):

Before that fateful summer night, Willow had balanced the insight of emotion, and the vivid images. That night, the figure in her nightmare marked her wrist with a star, giving her father no choice but to tell Willow a family secret that would abruptly change life, as she knew it, forever. Before Willow had time to absorb the shock of her father's secret, her soul mate that had shared every stunning dream with her, found her, and darkness captured her closest friends. In order to save them, she must weave through broken myths and the undeniable power of the Zodiac. In the end, Willow discovers that at the moment of our birth we are all given a divine gift


Okay memo from me read this book first then move on to the second otherwise you are lost and you will miss out on a fantastic series. The world building is wonderful; the characters had room to grow. There were parts I found a little tiring like we are so powerful and what not over and over and well honestly it was refreshing to find out that they weren’t all big and powerful LOL.

The whole soul mate thing was handled in such a way that I actually appreciated it. I liked how the heroine and hero were unable to protect everyone they loved it is refreshing that they had to experience real pain and loss and yet were able to maintain their individuality through it and still have me sympathizing with them. I liked how Willow was introduced to her new world and the anger she felt towards her family was real and understandable not an overreaction from a teenager that doesn’t know how to deal. Again if I had to pick one negative thing about this book it would be the whole we are powerful and all power and everyone is in total AWE of us and our powers LOL then the whole thing at the end with the little sister was a little off for me but helps with the next book.
