CORRINE JACKSON TOUCHED PDF

This was.. An interesting, pathetic attempt at copying Twilight. Don't you think so? That's what I thought.

Good suspense, imaginative premise; perhaps a bit too much exposition. A star-crossed romance highlights this series opener about a girl who has paranormal powers to heal and the boy who should be her enemy.

Remy lives with her mother and her abusive stepfather, Dean, until he finally beats Remy severely enough to send her to the hospital. There, she meets her real father, Ben, who takes her to live with his family in Maine.

Finally finding a happy home life with Ben, she meets the devastatingly handsome, wealthy and mysterious Asher. It transpires that Asher is a Protector, a member of a paranormal group intent on killing all healers.

Naturally, the two find themselves irresistibly attracted to each other. Like other Protectors, Asher has become immortal, a condition he regards as a curse, and lacks the senses of touch, smell or taste—both of which Remy may be able to cure. Jackson writes suspense skillfully, but the romance sections get a bit muddled due to the paranormal complexity that requires frequent expository dialogue. However, when a threat emerges toward the end of the book, the narrative springs to life again.

Skip this uninspired entry into the world of medieval love and court intrigue. The independent teenager makes Jameson laugh, but she lacks the education and demeanor people expect in a queen. Her friend Delia Grace has more knowledge of history and languages but is shunned due to her illegitimate birth.

Hollis gets caught up in a whirl of social activity, especially following an Isolten royal visit. There has been bad blood between the two countries, not fully explained here, and when an exiled Isolten family also comes to court, Jameson generously allows them to stay.

Hollis relies on the family to teach her about Isolten customs and secretly falls in love with Silas, the oldest son, even though a relationship with him would mean relinquishing Jameson and the throne. When Hollis learns of political machinations that will affect her future in ways that she abhors, she faces a difficult decision. Romance readers will enjoy the usual descriptions of dresses, jewelry, young love, and discreet kisses, although many characters remain cardboard figures.

While the violent climax may be upsetting, the book ends on a hopeful note. There are prejudicial references to Romani people, and whiteness is situated as the norm. Not much forward momentum but a tasty array of chills, thrills, and chortles.

Along the way he encounters a semilawless patchwork of peculiar gangs, syndicates, and isolated small communities—many at loggerheads, some in the midst of negotiating a tentative alliance with the Ymbryne Council, but all threatened by the shadowy Organization. A fresh set of found snapshots serves, as before, to add an eldritch atmosphere to each set of incidents. The cast defaults to white but includes several people of color with active roles.
