Storm of Visions
Christina Dodd
Signet, Aug 2009, $7.99
ISBN 9780451227638

Jacqueline Vargha rejects the idea that she is one of the magnificent seven Chosen Ones; instead she insists she has no paranormal skills. However, her her adoptive mother psychic Zusane knows better and forces a reluctant Jacqueline to join with the other six special Chosen.

The team is shocked when their selected mentors die in a bombing. The reluctant untrained Chosen One and Zusane's bodyguard Caleb, who was once Jacqueline's lover, accompanied by two unskilled elderly assistants with no extrasensory skills hunt the assassin while dodging their natural enemies the Others and struggling with an attraction neither want but both desire.

STORM OF VISIONS is an action-packed paranormal romantic suspense that sets the stage for what looks like will be a terrific series, but also insures the opening act contains a strong story line. Caleb is an interesting male lead, but Jacqueline is the more fascinating protagonist as she prefers to pretend she has no paranormal abilities just like she prefers to ignore her feelings for the bodyguard. Although the romance is more like a light switch being turned on and off throughout the plot, fans of Christina Dodd will enjoy her suspense laden paranormal thriller.

The only thing I loved was the beginning

This was my first C. Dodd novel and it will probably be the last. It had a wonderful beginning, the bodyguard/ex-boyfriend who caught up to his charge who was hiding hundreds of miles from her home and responsiblity. He took her back to her family kicking and screaming...
This was my first C. Dodd novel and it will probably be the last. It had a wonderful beginning, the bodyguard/ex-boyfriend who caught up to his charge who was hiding hundreds of miles from her home and responsiblity. He took her back to her family kicking and screaming. She stepped in the circle acknowledging her part as a Chosen One... And then everything went south from there.

Eventhough the background behind The Chosen Ones and the Others seemed fascinating it took way too long to get the story moving. The Chosen Ones were a clueless bunch of misfits who haphazardly pulled their talent together and the plot was weaker than the coffee I just got from Chic-fil-a.

    A great first book in a new series for lovely Diva Christine Dodd

    In her new series The Chosen Ones Christina gives us a group of misfits who have a few things in common one being they were all abandoned at birth and two they all have "special gifts". This book is the story of the new realm of The Chosen Ones and specifically of Jacqueline the current seers daughter and Caleb the bodyguard.

    As you would expect Ms. Dodd throws us right into the storm in her new paranormal thriller Storm of Visions. She gives us eclectic new characters who run the gamut from really weird to almost normal and they are all memorable to the point of excitement knowing they will be starring in their own special tales as The Chosen. Her story line is unique in a world of many good vs evil tales and her writing style is dramatic and keeps you on the edge of your seat from the time you open the book until you read the last page. Her love scenes are super sexy and as I like them on the Sizzle Burner, but with tender sensuality. Her dialogue is witty and exciting and so full of detail that you can visualize the catastrophes she describes on the page.
    This is a must summer read not only for lovers of paranormal tales but those of us who love a great romance, wonderful characters and love scenes that sizzle.
