Micah hates her ability to “see” things when she touches people. She’s terrified of relationships, holds on to guilt over the death of her classmate, Lacey, and has no idea what to do with a vision from Landon, a boy from her school. She feels him falling for her, but Micah doesn’t do friends, much less relationships.

Enter a spooky history project about a tragedy from three hundred years ago, and voodoo dolls that Micah somehow feels has to do with her gift. Suddenly she’s sure the shadows in the woods are following her every move—without Landon’s relaxed attitude about what’s happening in her life, Micah would be sure she’s going crazy.

With no ideas on timing or specifics, the visions of both herself and the people she cares about are turning dark—and it appears the shadows around her house do move on their own. But as Micah and Landon try to prevent Micah’s visions of the future, the shadows close in, and they’re now afraid they’ve become the cause…

Micah's story is the first of three girls, with unique talents, who are part of a 300 year old tragedy that follows them in the shadows.

Not once did I want to put this phenomenal story down. Jolene Perry created a world of mystery and intrigue that kept me reading until I was about to pass out.

Micha has seen pictures, flashes, and small blips of people's lives from touch for as long as she can remember. No one knows. But what happens when she becomes the main focus in a negative way and she starts getting watched by shadows?

I adored Micha. She is such a strong person considering all she's been through with no help form anyone else. Her relationship with her mom, the pictures and feelings she gets from her, has always grounded her. Landon, the son of a senator, has a privileged life, but he isn't snobby or stuck up like one would assume.

Insight was an amazing read. It kept me focused with the unknown and the excitement of some situations. I loved that the characters, or the main characters at least, had depth and a back story that made their choice and actions make sense. It was descriptive and vivid to the point where I was able to get a clear picture of each event that took place.

Overall, Insight left me with one big question that will hopefully be explained by the end of the series, but didn't leave me on the edge of a cliff. If you want a book with a very sweet romance and some paranormal tendencies, you've found your book!

Do you have a question you would like me to answer about myself, books, blogging or anything else bookish? Send me your questions by filling out this form and I'll fill you guys in every Monday!

I love the concept of this. It would be absolutely awful seeing part of someone's life every time you touched them. Plus the cover is amazing!
