By Mara Gan
Genre: YA/NA Sci-fi Romance
Release Date: September 12th 2017
All I ever wanted to do was read my books, play my sports, and help people. Life and prophecy had other things in mind.
Helping people is what I do; as an empath and semi-frequent telepath, I can easily sense and understand people’s needs and emotions. Sometimes even before they do. Being able to read everyone’s thoughts and feelings all the time can drive me crazy with anxiety, but that moment when I can finally make someone’s life better makes everything worth it.
Unfortunately, I’m also the next in line to rule the galaxy, I’m the only diplomat most planets will listen to, assassins try to kill me on an annoyingly regular basis, and a much-vaunted Prophecy has decreed that I’m going to die. Oh, and someone blew up my home planet.
Kind of a lot to deal with, right?
Too bad I just got another problem: a big, irritating, overbearing bodyguard with serious anger management issues.
And I think I’m falling for him.
I really enjoyed the premise and creative blocks that went into Joined. I haven’t read a lot of books that involved telepaths and empaths and was instantly drawn in when I read the summary. There was plenty action that pushed this story forward. Especially since it is longer than average and could sometimes get a bit jumbled at points. While it followed some of the more typical YA novel movements, I found the characters to be engaging and likable. I’m interested to see more growth to Meda’s personality and how she will face challenges in the future.
