Title: Deadly Little Games
Author: Laurie Faria Stolarz
Description: Camelia and Ben have discovered a powerful bond: They both possess the power of psychometry, the ability to sense things through touch. For Ben, the gift is a frightening liability. When he senses a strong threat or betrayal, he risks losing control and hurting people. Camelia's gift is more mysterious. When she works with clay, her hands sculpt messages her mind doesn't yet comprehend.
Before either teen has a chance to fully grasp these abilities, an unresolved family tragedy resurfaces in Camelia's life, irrevocably changing everything she cares about...
I found this series earlier this year and fell madly in love with it. I couldn't be happier with the third installment. I still love Ben. Dear, dear Ben. He pisses me off sometimes because, well, let's face it; he's a boy, and they can be idiots sometimes. Ben is stubborn and has too much pride at times, but he still makes me swoon! :)
I am so intrigued by Camelia's gift. The idea of psychometry is so interesting and I would love to know more about this subject. I haven't ever read a series quite like this one. It's original, romantic, scary, and thrilling.
I liked that Adam appeared more in this book, but he just doesn't do it for me. He sounds incredibly good looking, but I don't think he is a threat for Ben. There is so much mystery in this book that I'm fearful I'll give something important away without meaning too. I will say that in between chapters there are awesome crossword puzzles that I tried to figure out! I figured out most the words, but not all. Although, you'll know the answers at the end.
I can't wait for the next book. I know it will be as thrilling as the previous. I recommend this series for anyone who is looking for something interesting and new!
