    Great book!

    I'm super excited about this series. This series I have been following from the very beginning and have love it. While I enjoyed this book, I felt like there is something missing. I think its cause I wasn't able to really connect to Lindsey as well as I could with the other mystyx group. Still, the book is good. If you haven't read the series I suggest you do. Ms. Arthur writes about teens with a real life, with a hint of something paranormal.

    In this book, the reader meet Lindsey. After moving again, Lindsey is immediately thrown in a world of chaos. I liked Lindsey. She wasn't stuck up or mean. She really just wanted some stability. I don't think I connected well with this character cause I couldn't grasp her connection with the other mystyx characters. It was like she was just thrown in the mix. It took a few chapters before I could find myself understanding Lindsey and where she came from. Lindsey is fierce and strong. She catches on fast and becomes one of the group before you know it. I really like how Ms. Arthur brought some interesting characters from the first book I thought were gone! I gasp once the secret was out and thought "WOAH!"

    This story doesn't only cover Lindsey's story but also covers what is going on with the other mystyx characters. I miss my other books friends and it was good to see them fighting against evil all together. Once again, more questions were raised as others were answered. You can tell in this book that the enemy is getting stronger and ready to attack. Not just a small attack but a full on final battle. Each character has face their demon and the final showdown is coming! I can't wait to read how it is all going to end!!!

    Mesmeriz is a good book! Filled with lots of battles, death, and adding a new mystyx to the group, the group is getting stronger. With the forces combine and done with the petty fighting, the mystyx group is ready! EEEEP!

    Mesmerize is Fantastic!!!

    Mesmerize is book four in the Mystyx series. I love this series. Artist Arthur is a fantastic writer and I love her characters. Four teens have been given supernatural gifts to fight Charon of the underworld by the Greek goddess Fatima. Each one of these teens have to be tested before they come together to stand against Charon, and this time it’s Lindsey turn. Artist Arthur also tackles different race issues along with other issues of being poor, rich, loners,death and romance—all what teens face today with plenty of action and romance.

    Lindsey is Asian and almost seventeen. She’s also telepathic and an empath. She lost her parents a year ago and now lives with her guardian Aurora Hampton, who has a few secrets of her own. Krystal, Sasha, and Jake have gone through their test and now it’ Lindsey who will face her weakness to become stronger or lose her power. But little did Lindsey know her test was going to come in a tall, muscular, cute guy with deep blue sapphire eyes. Dylan will be Lindsey's test. A test between her heart and her destiny as a Mystyx and Dylan have a few more secrets that the rest of the Mystyx has been trying to figure out this past year. Along with heart-break for her friend, Krystal. These heart-breaks will bring a bond between Lindsey and Krystal.

    Mesmerize is Lindsey’s story of a teenage girl who has been given supernatural powers to fight the underworld, she lives in guilt, and who's trying to survive the death of her parents and the lost her true love. Mesmerize is full of heart-breaking drama, action and romance. I recommend Mesmerize as a fantastic read.

    Good read!

    I didn't figure out that this was part of a series until I began reading. There were some things that Lindsey kept mentioning that I was like.. Um? Is there something I was missing. With that in mind, I still really liked this book. It kept my attention and it explained almost everything so I could keep up.

    Cover: The cover is really pretty! I like how it shows her mark on her ankle, which I know understand. Plus the cover keeps it quite ominous and it was true to the book! Plus it has purple, I love purple! :)

    Plot: The plot was a little confusing. Granted that this is the fourth book in the Mystyx series and a lot had happened in those three other books. For the most part it kept me interested, but there were some grammatical mistakes and sentence errors that I hope are corrected.

    Characters:
    So, first there's Lindsey. She is still the new girl, newly inducted cheerleader, and mind reader. Yes, you read that right, mind reader. She is a very interesting character from the beginning and yet, she's has the same thoughts and emotions we all have. She is strong and brave, but also a teenager who wants a relationship, which it was nice to be able to connect to her on that level.

    The there's Dylan. I didn't really like Dylan. To me he was sketchy and evasive, never divulging any personal information about himself. Which I didn't like. If some random guy, even if he was the most popular and hottest guy in school, started paying attention to me I would be wondering what's up with that. Which is exactly what Dylan did. Sure, he had some very sweet moments and was nice at times, but I didn't like him.

    All in all: It didn't make me want to read the other books to get the full story, but it was a good story on its own! I give it 31 out of 51 tacos!
