Review: First Visions by Heather Topham Wood


"Two years ago, 21-year-old Kate Edwards became deathly ill and slipped into a coma. While unconscious, she crept into the mind of a missing boy and awoke with the knowledge of his location. Friends and family were skeptical and wary of her new ability to see into the minds of others. Their fears prompted Kate to keep her psychic powers a secret. Feeling alienated, she dropped out of college and spent most of her days holed up at her mother's home.


Now another child has been abducted. Police detective Jared Corbett seeks out Kate for her help in solving the case. Reluctantly, Kate agrees and they must work together to bring 8-year-old Cori Preston home to her family. Although attracted to one another, Jared has a girlfriend with ties to the abduction case and Kate is sarcastic and guarded since her coma. With visions she can't control and an uncontrollable attraction to the detective, she wonders if she can leave the past behind and finally stop hiding from the world. Otherwise, Cori may be lost forever."

After a rather unexpected illness, Kate wakes up with a new ability: she has visions. Not just ordinary visions, either. She now has the ability to see into the memories of people around her in her dreams. Unfortunately, she has no control over whose memories she looks into or when these visions come to her and she isn’t able to see the future – only the past. This new ability of hers comes in handy when a little girl goes missing and the police have no clue where to look for her. First Visions has a story that will grab you from the very beginning and won’t let you go until the last page. 
 
I rate this book: 

This book was a refreshing change for me, after reading so many books with a multitude of mythical creatures and monsters. It was nice to read a story about a normal girl trying to deal with something paranormal like having a psychic ability. I also really enjoyed that, as the reader, you are able to see things from the main character’s point of view in this book. I like books that do this because it makes it easier for me to step into the character’s shoes, allowing me to relate to that particular character easily. This type of writing makes it really easy to get into the story and First Visions didn't disappoint in this aspect at all. If you’re looking for an engrossing, quick, and interesting read, you should definitely pick up First Visions
