Book Review: Dark Visions by Jonas Saul

Dark Visions by Jonas Saul
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Picked this up as a free Kindle eBook back in November 2011, but don’t remember if it a recommendation, or if it just looked interesting when I was searching for free books to read on my new Kindle Touch. The summary looked interesting and it was free, so I ordered it.
When I started reading the book, I felt drawn into it immediately from the first sentence:
“Life and death was the difference of a choice, a moment of indecision, an expensive thought that cast a silky web around her. The snare was always set, gripping and pulling, but would she be strong enough when the time came? Would she be able to save whomever it is she was supposed to save?”.
Captivating, intriguing, exploration of psychic ability, kidnapping.
A little choppy in sections. A lot of unnecessary, in my opinion, characters.
I liked Sarah’s flaws, rather than her being a well-adjusted teen. Her character was a quick thinker, but inexperienced with her abilities, and sometimes confused. All this makes her all the better.
This was my first Jonas Saul book, but definitely not my last.
