My rating: ♥ ♥ ❥
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…

Okay, okay! It's been a few days now since I've finished this book. I've been racking my brains on a nice way to phrase this review. But there is no easy way, so here goes:
I DID NOT LIKE THIS AT ALL!
The main character gave me a headache. I tortured myself trying to finish it just because I hate to quit on a book. The whole time I was talking myself into finding some good in it, like I do every book that falls a little short on my expectations, because I hate to give low rating. But at last I just can't.
Granted, I didn't read the first couple of books in this series, so I figure they have to be worth something if the author made it to book #4. I'll give you one star for that.
The last ten pages was where I felt the whole story should have been progress wise. I'll give you another star for that.
Lastly, I really really wanted to like Lindsey, but I so could not relate. The half rating goes to the fact that the Mystyx characters all have had cool powers.
Since there's no half rating scale here, I'll give the other half in good faith.
This book just didn't do it for me. Sorry.
