The Empath by Jody Klaire

Fantastic way to start a series!

What was the book about?:
Aeron, a woman with a gift and a troubled past, returns home from a correctional facility to find herself judged, and exiled. She finds herself embroiled in a crime for which the town immediately point the finger at her for blame, but is she just being set up?

Featured Tropes: Mysterious woman

Book Strengths:
I absolutely loved this story. It was heart-felt, deep with emotion and feeling, and fed my curiosity. There is nothing better than people with mystery, and Aeron has lots of it. Her story is unique, and I am so glad this is a series because I adore her, and can’t wait to find out more about her. Jody Klaire brilliant used Aeron’s gift as an Empath to create this uncertainty, but never letting enough doubt creep in for you to misjudge Aeron. You saw a kind, compassionate woman, who faced many challenges, but was always noble, trusting, and forgiving. 

The story was a thrill! Paranormal, mystery, and tons of intrigue building quite the complex and intricate crime thriller. As a reader I was encapsulated by the events going on in town, and invested in working out if they were all connected and whether I should doubt Aeron. Using both first person, and third person points of view really helped add to the confusion and distortion, in deceiving the reader to create such uncertainty in this thriller. 

I never could have guessed how intense this story was going to be, nor did I realise how emotional it was going to be until I started reading, but the journey was amazing, thought-provoking, and for me just a wonderful start to a series that is really going to keep me entertained, but also challenge me mentally. 

Book weaknesses:
Really every second of this story was amazing, and there was anything I didn’t like. 

Character Chemistry:
Aeron has to be one the most unique characters I have ever encountered. Everything she embodies is the ultimate reminder that no matter what, we are all human, we all have feelings, and we will be judged. Good or bad, you decide when it comes to Aeron, but I know I wouldn’t be frightened of her no matter what her capabilities, or her past. Aeron’s actions, thoughts, and feelings, were so well put to me in the first person narrative that I definitely felt a connection to her, and she is one of my all-time favourite characters. Nothing better than a misunderstood, misfit, with unique paranormal skills. Love Aeron. 

The ultimate reminder to never judge a book (person) by its cover!!! You will be surprised.

Star Rating: 5 Stars
