I would like to welcome Jamie Magee to Books R Us. She is virtually touring the blogosphere with NURTURE Virtual BOOK Tourz™

Insight (A Young Adult Paranormal Romance) (Insight series)Some say that dreams are the doorway to the soul. Willow Haywood is no stranger to that doorway. Each night she shares a blissful, silent dream with a stunning blue-eyed boy. With each new moon she is haunted by a painful nightmare shared with a different boy, who’s always hidden by the shadows.
In her waking hours she must battle her sixth sense. The one that allows her to feel others emotions as if they were her own. This insight is exhausting and frustrating causing her to draw inward, only trusting her family and few close friends. Oddly, this sense also attracts ghostly images that seem to appear out of nowhere.  With a touch, they take her to wherever they may be, allowing her to change their emotion. This alone would cause most to go insane, but Willow filters her aggression by painting, capturing the emotion she changed.
One August night a nightmare came days after the new moon. In this dream the shadowed boy marked her wrist with star, leaving her father no choice but to share a family secret that would tie all of the odd attributes of Willow’s life together. Now, she has no choice but to outrun the fate that is closing in around her.
 In an attempt to lure her, the shadowed figure captures her closest friends.  In order to save them, she must weave through broken myths, half truths, and the undeniable power of the Zodiac. With each step she takes Willow comes to realize that she has lived before, her path is one that she chose, and this trial is simply the beginning.

About the Author-

Jamie Magee has always believed that each of us have a defining gift that sets us apart from the rest of the world, she has always envied those who have known from their first breath what their gift was. Not knowing hers, she began a career in the fast paced world of business. Raising a young family, and competing to rise higher in that field would drive some to the point of insanity, but she always found a moment of escape in a passing daydream. Her imagination would take her to places she’d never been, introduce her to people she’s never known. Insight, her debuting novel, is a result of that powerful imagination. Today, she is grateful that not knowing what defined her, led her on a path of discovery that would always be a part of her.

My Thoughts-

I have always been a fan of fantasy and I really enjoyed Ms. Magees's debut novel. She has a wonderful writing style that is able to bring the reader into a world of magic, danger, astrology, adventure and love.  The use of soul mates and alternate dimensions made the novel intriguing and I was hooked from page one. Her scene descriptions made me feel that I was right there interacting with the characters. There were quite a few characters that I had to keep track of but it did not take away from the story. I really liked Willow and Landen and the way they interacted together. Although there were some minor editing errors, I had no difficulty reading the book. I recommend this book and I look forward to reading the next book in the series Embody. Would you like to win a digital copy of the book? Enter my contest below.
