Review ~ Vivid by Andrea Murray

Her entire life she has feared her power and its connection to her mother’s murder.

When Vivian Cartwright was five years old, she witnessed her mother’s death. Now, sixteen-year-old Vivian only wants a normal life, hard to accomplish when you possess the power to control energy. She has kept her ability a secret from everyone except her guardian, Charlotte, who has hidden Vivian from the man responsible for her mother’s murder.

Her secret is safe until Vivian defends herself at school using her power. After this first use of her gift in many years, Vivian’s power seems to take on a mind of its own, increasing in strength and demanding to be used. This increase in power also brings dreams of her mother’s death and the mysterious man associated with it. In her desire to unlock her past, Vivian is forced to use her supernatural gift over and over. With each use, Vivian fears she is losing control and discovers her powers are growing—maybe too much—bringing her unknowingly closer to the man who murdered her mother.

My Thoughts:

Vivid was exciting, adrenaline spiking, suspenseful and consuming. I was hooked from the beginning and I am eager to read the next book.

Vivien lost her mother at a young age and can't remember much about the last time her mother was with her. She has powers that she can't explain and she works hard to seem normal.

One day she loses control and things spin out of control after that.

All I'll say is this is a thrill ride of agendas, surprises, and mystery.

I thought it was fantastic! I received an ecopy in exchange for my honest opinion.
