I started and finished Trance by Linda Gerber on the plane ride home from Denver today for a We Love YA! tour.
It begins with a subtle vibration, a tingling.
There is time to take only one breath.
The trance begins.
When it is through, Ashlyn is certain of two things:
Someone she knows is about to die.
And she is powerless to stop it.
This was an engaging story. I pretty much engulfed it in a little over an hour on the plane. The premise isn't really new but I still enjoyed it all the same. I felt so bad for Ashlyn. I could feel her pain and her guilt. And I loved Jake! He was such a great male character and so there for Ashlyn.
I get the feeling that this might be a beginning to a series, or there at least might be a sequel. The ending was definitely left on a cliffhanger and I want to know what Ashlyn sees in her last trance!
I gave this book a rating of 3.5/5.
Trance will be released on October 14, 2010.
