Blurb from Goodreads: All she wanted was to disappear…
Claire Martin is an empath. She’s lived her entire life as a slave to a constant barrage of emotions that weren't hers. Off to college she hopes simply to blend with the crowd where she can best hide her curse. Within her first few weeks at school Claire meets Stephen Andrews, a small, fragile looking boy who changes her life forever.
Stephen, a boy with a secret of his own, instantly recognizes Claire for what she is. It is through Stephen's aid that Claire meets James, a vampire with a talent of his own. As soon as they touch, their abilities connect in a way that has not occurred in over three hundred years forming a bond that cannot be broken.
Review: Empath is a good book that actually realistically explores what it would be like to be a teen empath. Claire faced so many difficulties being an empath that I'm amazed she was even able to stay sane. I loved how she attempted to have a normal life and didn't just mope around and complain for days on end. She really was a strong heroine.Stephan... I LOVE this guy. He is the first friend that Claire makes and he is the reason she started to learn to control her abilities. If she never met him she would never have met James( the love interest.) Oh and I was so happy that there was no love triangle here( I really can't stand those.) Stephan was just a friend and that's all he wanted to be. It really was a breath of fresh air.
James was amazing. I think he was perfect for Claire. He was mature... and well that makes sense since he is a vampire and has been around for quite some time. He really is caring and protective and just awesome towards Claire.
The plot itself is amazing with different twists and turns and you really grow to love Claire and you become genuinely happy for her as she learns to control her powers and gains a level of normalcy in her life.
I wouldn't miss this book if you are into paranormal romance and I love the take on vampires. I kind of hate to compare this to Twilight but I feel like Empath is Twilight's older, smarter, and hotter cousin.
So this book gets...
