Dark Vsions- L.J Smith
Kaitlyn Fairchild has always felt like an outsider in her small hometown. Her haunting eyes and prophetic drawings have earned her a reputation as a witch. But Kait's not a witch: She's a psychic. Tired of being shunned, Kait accepts an invitation to attend the Zetes Institute, where she can have a fresh start and study with other psychic teens.
Learning to hone her abilities with four other gifted students, Kait discovers the intensity of her power -- and the joy of having true friends. But those friendships quickly become complicated when Kait finds herself torn between two irresistible guys. Rob is kind and athletic, and heals people with his good energy. Gabriel is aggressive and mysterious, a telepath concealing his true nature as a psychic vampire, feeding off of others' life energy. Together, Rob and Gabriel's opposing forces threaten the group's stability.
Then one of the experiments traps the five teens in a psychic link. A link that threatens their sanity and their lives. And Kaitlyn must decide whom to trust...and whom to love.
I picked this book out when I was put shopping with my mom. I knew the author, having read some of her other work, and knew I like her style of writing. So I bought this and read it that night, after I had done all my chores and I had the night to myself. And it's a good thing I did only read it after for if I had begun reading it reading this before I had started my chores none of them would have been done that day.
The first sentence had me hooked and wanting more and I couldn't put the book down, I felt as if I were Kaitlyn, as if I were the one nobody wanted to invite to a party because they thought I was a freak, as if I were the one torn between two really great guys. I feel in love with Kaitlyn and everybody else in the book.
There were some weaker parts in the middle that I didn't like as much as the others, but other then that this book was definitely a great book. This is defiantly a book you could read over and over again and never get bored with. Over all I give this book from 1, I couldn't finish it to 10, unputdownable, I rank this book a 9.
