I have something people want. I have something they cannot take or steal. I have something they’d kill for.
The something I have, isn’t a possession, it’s more.
Much, much more.
It’s a gift.
It’s part of me.
REVIEW #3 stars out of 5 READ MY REVIEW HERE:
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
REVIEW #3 stars out of 5 – Enjoyable but I would describe it as a suspense YA book with a hint of Paranormal. – But Readers of Margaret McHeyzer books will love it I am sure.
So I finished this book Thursday, and I took a day to reflect on how I was going to review this book.
But this book did not hook me in like those two books.
So I will start with the GOOD
My favourite line was the one where Lexi mentions one of my favourite shows Star Trek…
“Did I just open Pandora’s box? Should I ask Scotty to beam me up?”
The writing is good, the story flows and I LOVE the cover.
The Character age gap:
This book has two main characters ‘Lexi’ 16, and ‘Jude’ 25 – Jude’s profession and he is definitely the mean heartless persona that his profession is known for. Now due to the VAGUE Blurb, and me not giving Spoiler Reviews, I can’t really say much more… But this is the one area that I was uncomfortable with.
The Genre choice:
When Margaret said that she was writing a paranormal book, I was excited to see what she would bring, but for me personally, I felt this was not a paranormal book. I know that it is correctly classified as Paranormal, don’t get me wrong as I have googled to see what classed as this genre before I wrote this review. but the only thing that is paranormal is the ‘GIFT’ part, if you took this away and replaced it with say a ‘bargaining chip’ that would make Lexi worth something, and Jude wanted you would still have a great story, but it would be straight YA.
SO I am mentioning this so other #ParanormalJunkies realise up front this
I have already signed up to review the second part of this duo-logy and I look forward to seeing how the author ties up Lexi’s story, and I will see if the ‘Paranormal’ takes off in book 2.
*** I voluntarily reviewed this book, I gained no monetary incentives nor was I specifically requested to review the book, these are my honest ramblings and I hope you enjoy ***

#2 The Curse – Releasing August 20, 2017
NEW YORK TIMES BEST SELLER OF UGLY AND MISTRUST
**Write something worth reading**
I’m Margaret and I’m a self-published author.
Recently I was fortunate in obtaining New York Times best selling status on my YA/NA book – Ugly, and my YA book – Mistrust.
My last three books have been YA and I’m completely in love with the genre. I love being able to communicate with people through my words and stories.
My writing genres all differ, but the one thing I keep consistent is my heroines. All my female lead characters are strong, gutsy and not the ‘perfect’ woman. While my books all have romantic elements in them, they aren’t just about the romance. They’re about finding strength, acceptance and making life long connections.
I hope you enjoy my stories as much as I have while writing them.
