ANother wonder for my collection

Being that I have recently become one of L.J Smiths fans. I have found it VERY difficult to get her books. But this one I was lucky enough to reach before the "Out of print" label reached it first. At first I was skeptical because of the cover and everything. You really have to be an anti "judge a book by the cover" reader, to get this book. Which also goes for the Secret circle..... Anywhoo This book was really captivating...A group of five special psycic teens from all over the U.S are bribed (to put it mildly) into going to a home in California. Where they could start a new life and get PAID for it! All needed of them were to do some harmless tesing on their psycic powers on a regular basis(or so they thought). Soon Kaitlyn is sent clues that Mr.Zetes is up to no-good with his researching, she starts getting suspicious. And it doesnt help that the messenger is put into a mysterious coma soon after. It was THEN that she decided to find out about Mr.Zetes and what he really wants from them. She and the others decide to search for the truth and they find a secret...(nope cant tell you that)well files that...(Nope cant tell you that either)Sorry. Well what I CAN tell, is that on their mission for the truth Gabriel makes a mistake and links them all into a stable psycic link. Which makes them read into each other's thoughts. They keep their secrets from Mr.Zetes scared of what he might do if he found out what they "knew". But then Kaitlyn and Gabe are caught into a bad situation, they are trapped with Mr.Zetes with no power to hold against him....LISTEN Im not much of a storyteller so do yourself a favor and get the book! Its much better when you read it. Youll be suprised with what happens and be happy that you got it! As a matter of fact get the whole trilogy!

I've read this book five times!

This is a great book. Along with the Secret Circle Trilogy it's my favorite by her. The Dark Visions trilogy is wonderul. I love the characters. They stick with you, especially Gabriel. He's a wonderfully well developed character. It's strange because he's not the main character but somehow you walk away with more of an understanding of him than you do any of the other characters. It's amazing! Not that the other characters aren't good. Kait is very interesting and I just love Lewis. Anna was cool. Even Rob was nice although he's the one character I think could have stood to be developed a little more. Not that you would notice if it weren't in such contrast with Gabriels character. Hey, I'd buy the book just for the timeless sarcastic remarks made.

Very very good!

I love this book and the rest of the series so much. It was my first LJS book, and I fell in love with it from page 1. Who doesn't fall in love with Gabriel at the end of the series? I mean, Rob is nice and everything, but he seems kinda boring. Anyway, the story is great and the plot just hooks you right away. I seriously couldn't put it down. I'll leave with these final parting words... GABRIEL IS HOT! OH YEAH!

I LOVE these books!!!!!!!!!!

I'm a Senior in High School and I still think LJ Smith's books are wonderful. The only problem I have with them is they are too short! I want MORE! For all of you who thought the plot was boring all I can say is it's a whole lot more interesting than most of those so called "Adult" Books out there. Oh, yeah, and Gabrel's REALY HOT!!!!! But let's not go into that or I'll go over the word limet. :)

It's one of the best books I HAVE READ.

I loved the Dark Visions Trilogy.It had me reading it all night.L.J Smith is such a great writer.I seriously think that this story should be made into a movie.I think this story is just screaming to be made into a movie.I can't wait till L.J Smith comes out with a new novel. *Hint. Hint.*Those vampire stories are really good. Do all the vampire soulmates and wild powers get together another novel?
