Mesmerize by Artist Arthur

Mesmerize (Mystyx, #4)

You can’t move forward until you deal with the past…

Starting over is nothing new to diplomat’s daughter Lindsey Yi. She’s grown up changing schools the way other girls change clothes. Still, moving to Lincoln, Connecticut, is different. Although she’s still reeling from the loss of her parents in an accident, Lindsey is finally in a place that feels like home. Because here, Lindsey’s ability to read other people’s thoughts doesn’t make her weird. It makes her one of the Mystyx.

When Dylan Murphy—hot, popular and a senior—starts to notice her, things get serious, fast. But even as she’s figuring out how she really feels, the Mystyx realize that they’re not the only supernaturals in town. There are other gifted teens who have different motives. And they are hoping to get close enough to the Mystyx to convert them—and the world—to Darkness…

My Review

Thank you to Netgalley for allowing me to read this ARC.WOW this is the first book I have read in this series. I know I did it backwards but this book cover called me so much I just had to read it and I am so glad I did.

Lindsey Yi is still mourning the death of her parents in a horrible train wreck a year ago. She has moved to a small town of Lincoln, Connecticut. She is living with her guardian and attending yet another new school. The only thing good about moving here is that she has found a home where she has friends and no longer considers herself a freak because of her gift. Here she has met others who have gifts and are not afraid to use them for good.

As the school year is winding down Lindsey and her friends feel like something big is going to happen to the town. There are strange things lurking about and the weather is changing constantly. Then Lindsey comes face to face with evil and the only way to destroy this evil is to confront her past and let go of the pain of losing her parents. This task is a lot harder than it seems because everytime she closes her eyes she can see her parents die over and over again. Will she be able to look past her pain and stand up for good or will evil prevail?

What will lindsey do? Will her friends be there for her? Will she find answers to her questions in order to let go and come to turns with reality? Come along for a great fast paced adventure and read this book because you will not be able to put it down. I am going to go read the first three because I LOVED this books o much so I have to see how the other three friends came into their powers and what is in store for them on the fifth book which comes out this August 2012.

Looks like an appropriate read for teens. And I like the term Mystyx, so unique and angsty.
