Mind's Eye (Mind Eye #1) by Rebecca A. Rogers ~ Promo + Review!

Title: Mind’s Eye

Author: Rebecca Rogers

Release date: January 1st, 2014

Genre: Young Adult, Paranormal

Book Description:

Seventeen-year-old Kearly Ashling can travel anywhere her mind takes her—literally. Becoming Empress of the planet Cyeor and battling monstrous, otherworldly creatures isn’t a problem. Living among the elves on the Plains of Glasslyn has yet to be an issue, as well. Even touring normal places like Paris, London, Tokyo, and the Amazon Rainforest isn’t difficult.

But traveling through her imagination isn’t just fun and games—it has consequences. Following a battle on the planet Cyeor, she’s visited by a guy who’s unimagined. He warns her to stop using her gift or they will find her. Kearly doesn’t heed the messenger’s advice and soon wishes she had. When the messenger finds her again, he transports her to the M.I.N.D., a corporation which specializes in “healing the psyche.” Once she’s inside the M.I.N.D.’s doors, however, Kearly realizes escaping is nearly impossible.
Now, she must figure out the M.I.N.D.’s true intent, try not to fall for the irritating-yet-handsome messenger, and find a way to outsmart the organization before they stop her from ever imagining again.

My Review:

*3.5 Stars!*

Mind's Eye is a very unique read. I was impressed by the amount of thought and imagination that the author put into the writing of this book.

Kearly is an average high schooler with a not so average ability. Kearly can travel anywhere in the world. And anywhere not in the world. The sky is the limit. Or rather, her imagination is the limit. If she can think it, she can go there. Unfortunately there is a secret agency called M.I.N.D whose mission is to stop people like Kearly from using their ability. When Kearly fails to heed their warning she is forced to go on the run. Her only allies are the boyfriend of the girl who hates her the most and one of M.I.N.D's own agents. Who does Kearly trust?

In the beginning stages of Mind's Eye, I had a little bit of a hard time connecting to the story. The characters and dialogue seemed a little forced or off somehow. But about halfway through the story really hit it's stride and I admit that I was hooked. I soon became really interested in what was going to happen next. Rebecca Rogers did a great job of grabbing my interest and holding on. I had no idea who to trust and who not to. I didn't envy Kearly's predicament one bit! And that ending...ugh! I have so many questions that I NEED answered now. Namely, is Cassandra a friend or foe?

I sincerely cannot wait to read the next book in this series! While it took me a bit to warm up to this first book, I have high hopes for this series as a whole!

About the Author:

Rebecca expressed her creative side at an early age and hasn’t stopped since. She won’t hesitate to tell you that she lives inside her imagination, and it’s better than reality.
In short: I’d insert something here along the lines of living in the Northeast or Europe with my wonderful husband and our dogs, but these things haven’t happened yet. Instead, I’ll tell you I’m an avid gamer, chocoholic, coffee addict, animal lover, and own way too many books and shoes.
