Overview

Willow Haywood has always been trapped between the worlds of the Light and the Dark. Her waking hours are plagued by her ability to feel the emotions of those around her. No matter how inward she draws, she cannot shut out the feelings of others. Sometimes she will see images - echoes of other people and places - that she can enter to influence the emotions of people she has never met.
By night, Willow experiences her only escape from this terrible insight - entering into the world of dreams. Most of these dreams are shared in blissful silence with a stunning blue-eyed boy. But every new moon she lives through something much darker: a horrific nightmare shared by another mysterious boy who is always shrouded by shadows.
One night, this shadowy figure invades her dreams outside of his appointed time. In this new nightmare, Willow is marked; a mark which follows her into the waking world and sets her on a momentous path through light and darkness, through fragmented myth and half-truths, through past lives and disturbing family secrets, all in the face of the ever-dominant Zodiac. What she finds will endanger the lives of those closest to her and will force her to make a decision that will change her world forever.

Meet the Author

Jamie Magee has always believed that each of us have a defining gift that sets us apart from the rest of the world, she has always envied those who have known from their first breath what their gift was. Not knowing hers, she began a career in the fast paced world of business. Raising a young family, and competing to rise higher in that field would drive some to the point of insanity, but she always found a moment of escape in a passing daydream. Her imagination would take her to places she’d never been, introduce her to people she’s never known. Insight, her debuting novel, is a result of that powerful imagination. Today, she is grateful that not knowing what defined her, led her on a path of discovery that would always be a part of her.

I could not put it down!! Definately a page turner, the author keeps you wanting to know what happens next. The details and bonds between the characters in the book become alive and I found myself bonding with them. A wonderful love story, and the way that she incorporated the zodiac and the details of the different dimensions made this a true masterpiece by this new up and coming author. I was thrilled with this read and have recommended it to everyone. Thank you author Jamie Magee for this wonderful book, and I look forward to future books from you.

After a series of tortuous nightmares, Willow eventually learns the truth of her existence: not only does she possess wondrous mystical powers, she's also the true love of a devoted soul mate who has traversed the natural boundaries of time and space to be with her. Before she has the chance to fully immerse herself in her new reality, though, a dark, sinister force threatens to destroy not only her life, but also the lives of her family and friends - forcing Willow into a climactic showdown with the manifestation of her greatest fears, with everything she holds dear on the line... Superbly crafted, Insight is a richly compelling fantasy tale. In her gripping debut offering, author Jamie Magee envelops the reader in a magical world rife with mystery, danger, action, and adventure, simultaneously treating them to an endearing story about the unyielding power of true love. What results is a powerful account of good vs. evil that doubles as a tender tale of undying devotion. Combining such diverse elements into a holistic whole is no easy task, but Magee pulls off the feat in impressive fashion, most notably through solid character development, realistic dialogue, and a strong central plotline with more than its fair share of surprising twists and turns. A solid debut from a promising new literary talent, Insight is sure to become a favorite of true fans of fantasy fiction. An engaging read. Chelsea Perry Apex Reviews

Loved this book. Willow has been gifted her whole life and finds out she belongs to a whole different dimension. Book keeps your interest the entire way throught it and would be fine for young teens to read. I'm REALLY hoping the author writes a continuing storyline. The book does have an ending but opens the possibilty of 7 more trials for Willow and Landen so hopefully we get another book soon. Hint hint Jamie.

PROs: Interesting ideas, likable characters. CONs: Poorly edited, lots of typos. Really too many characters, some unclear dialogue, and conflicting information. Could have used more editing, review, and rewriting before publishing. Not bad, given the price.

I really liked these books! They had a really unique plot to them, and they were just really interesting! Especially the powers! I really liked them! Willow and Landen's relationship was really strong, and I really liked that, and it was prettty quick coming into being (about however long it took for them to see each other) I wish there was a bit more with their communication, because it was private, personal, and more fun then regular talking, but oh, well. I felt pretty sad about the deaths that happened, but they had a reason, for most of them, from accidents to too rough a throw. But they added to the story, to the strenght of the plot, and of the characters!

I found this book interesting. The beginning seemed a little slow at first and I was not sure where the story was headed, but after the first few chapters I did not want to put it down. I was pulled into the character's lives and found myself laughing at times or worrying about what was going to happen. Would recommend to anyone of any age. Don't pass this one up.

Awesome read! Needs some work on the grammar and editing and that stuff, but it's a great book, especially considering the price!!!!

I loved this book, it was one of the good free stories. Nothing inappropiate and not too many grammar mistakes. The plot was great, and i can't wait to read the rest of the story. The book is really cool and entertaining, but can be a little slow at times. A must read.

I really enjoyed the first book it was a great read! I was a little disappointed with how short the second book was with it only being 200 pages and kind of slow in parts. Hopefully the third book is as good as the first. :)

I only have 3 books so far on my Favs list and this is number 1 on the list now. So well done, I really enjoyed being in the magical world the author created.

Far fetched but fabulous. There were quite a few characters to keep track of but they each played a very important part of the story. I could not put it down. Thank you Jamie Magee. I there will be a sequal.

This was a great read, flowed and unfolded very nicely. The opportunity for several other books to follow was implied. I am eagerly awaiting them. I wish there was some indication as to how long we will be waiting for the next one....

Really enjoyed this book. It kept moving along at a good pace, the mystery slowly coming to light, and it left options for future books. If more in this series comes out, I will be sure to read them!

I cried at the ending because it was such a good book. Now, is it really necessary to saying rude things about this book? No! If you have a mean comment, keep it to your self! Now I think that you should definetely read it! Be prepared for this books awesomeness!
