Empath
Empath by Becca J. Campbell
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Disclosure: I was given this book by the author for an honest review.

This was quite the fun, exciting story about three possibly four people who considered themselves flawed. The one I related to most was the empath who couldn’t get around crowds of people without feeling everyone else’s emotions. I find I can get around crowds for the same reason I am overly sensitive to everybody’s emotions I can’t seem to zero in on one at a time. But I’ve come to rely on it is a good way to know the people who were around me. I find it’s missing when I’m talking on the phone, which makes me avoid the phone.

The young college students are fun to read about Becca Campbell makes you feel like you are there with them as they go wall climbing, repelling and rafting. All the characters are believable even the bad guy, unfortunately.

The book is amazing! From the minute you start reading this book you are into it. It keeps you in suspense and wondering how the characters are going to solve their problems.

I understood that this was an ARC, so I’m not going to complain about the little errors along the way. The story kept me going anyway. I doubt that I would’ve noticed. What did stop me in my tracks, was the use of Scripture. It felt out of place. Just as it would if you were reading Santa Claus Is Coming to Town ,and there was a Scripture about a child wrapped in swaddling clothing. It isn’t that I think it was the wrong Scripture it just felt out of place in a fantasy. Maybe an * near the prayer that the main character prays, referring to that Scripture, would keep the story flowing a little bit better.

Regardless, I love this book and can’t wait to read the rest of the series. Thank you, Becca for letting me read your great bookthe mission
