“Ashlyn Greenfield has always known when bad things are going to happen. Each time that familiar tingling at the back of her neck begins, she knows what’s to come a trance. She’s pulled in, blindsided, an unwilling witness to a horrible upcoming event. But she’s never been able to stop it not even when the vision was of her mother’s fatal car accident. When soulful Jake enters Ashlyn’s life, she begins having trances about another car accident. And as her trances escalate, one thing becomes clear; it’s up to her to save Jake from near-certain death.”
Trance is one book that captivated me. Ashyln’s character not only seemed real but one that you can relate with right away. Ashlyn’s life has been tough. After a bad car accident, her family is torn apart. Left with dealing with her powers on her own, she must overcome the guilt and fear she has in order to save someone she loves.
Ashlyn has been though so much after the accident. She tries to be strong and move on, but the guilt of the night that happen plays into her mind over and over again. She does anything and everything to get her mind off it. She is alone. I hated that she is alone. She needed someone. Even though they blamed her for the accident, Ashyln needed guidance as well. I was upset that her father didn’t take more care for than what he did.
The way the love part played out with her visions was perfect. I loved how it all tied in with the car accident. That I did not see coming at all. I was totally shocked and just awed. When you read the story, you only her Ashyln’s POV. After reading the ending and how it truly panned out I understood. The love between Jake and Ashyln is real and true. I like how she did not allow the car accident affect how she felt about Jake. She loved him no matter what happen. True love. It always fixes everything.
I give it 4 BITES!
