See was an amazing read that I found myself captivated in right on the
very first page. I could not put this read down, Jamie has written a
novel that will catch your attention and then keep you until the very
last page! I must say I totally fell in love with this novel, the
paranormal aspect of this novel is all new, I loved the idea of people
that help the living and the dead be at peace. I also loved that thrown
in with those people are demons too, this read was completely something
new altogether for the YA genre! Although I loved this novel there is
one thing that bothered me, I felt I was confused for far too much of
the novel. Each time I thought I got what was going on, something would
happen and I would be confused again, and although I eventually pieced
everything together and it all made sense towards the end, ending this
novel I ended on a confused note! I am still stuck on if a certain
somebody is evil or not, I am hoping that See is going to be a series so
I can see what happens, but as far as I know right now See is a stand
alone, which leaves me confused and angry! So fingers crossed this turn
into a series! My favorite part of this novel was Jamie’s writing,
hands down. I have not read Jamie’s well known ‘Insight’ series, but
after reading ‘See’ I can honestly say I am deff going to be picking up
Insight soon! Her writing was incredible, I for one am big on writing
that flows, when I pick up a novel I want to be captivated by the
authors words and just flow through the pages until I have finished it,
and with Jamie’s writing, I did just that! I never once found a spot
where I thought ‘hey I should probably take a break here and continue
later’ NO! I couldn’t do it, I sat in my room for hours until I finished
See, and once I finished all I wanted was more, and also I could not
believe I had read the book in one sitting! Jamie’s writing is one that
will for sure captivate her readers! My second favorite part of See was
easily the romance, and although I know I should be going on about
Draven…I just can’t! Is it wrong of me to like the ‘might be’ bad guy?
If it is then I am guilty! I don’t know what it was about Britain, but I
could not help, but lean more towards him than Draven. When I think
about Britain I just think mysterious, and over protective..which for
some reason made me find him attractive? He had that whole stalker-ness
to him, and still I enjoyed him more than the romantic love interest
Draven. Don’t get me wrong, I loved Draven, I really did, but something
dark and twisted inside of me makes me like Britain more, maybe I just
like the crazy obsessive guys, who knows! I do want to make this clear
though, there is NOT a love triangle in this novel! Which I loved, there
was never one instance where Charlie wondered who she loved, or who she
wanted to be with. Which was great, most YA books would make a love
triangle out of Charlie, Britain, and Draven, but instead we finally
have a heroine who knows what (and who) she wants! Besides the point
of Jamie being an amazing writer and the romance being totally twisted
yet amazing, there were many other things about See that readers are
going to love, this is a novel about standing up for yourself and who
you love, a novel that has hate, darkness and light, action, and
everything someone looks for in an amazing read. I recommend this to
anyone looking for an amazing and unique YA read! Copy provided by

I absolutely loved Jamie Magee's first series. This series NEEDS to be read with the Insight series as they will combine together or somethin glike that in January. Because I was absolutely smittem with Insight I found this one slightly lacking, but only because I felt this was only a story to help supposrt the Insight series. This one focused a lot on music, which I loved. My biggest complaint was that I didn't feel like Draven was to Charlie as Landen was to Willow. I had fun trying to figure out how the two series coinsided, but I just read it for the infor,ation, not the story and that made me feel a little disappointed but I still had fun reading this side of Jamie's worldWas this review helpful?

This book was an addictive and alluring book with a flowing melodic undertone that hums as you read...
The book starts dark, as a reader you feel Charlie. You’re as confused and bewildered as she is ... As you read, it all starts to connect and as I neared the end it's started to clear up to me just like it did for Charlie.
I found the characters easy to relate to, they were all unique and easy to fall in love with as well as cheer for them. Each character was an individual that brought something extra and important to the story with their gift.
Jamie is an amazing and gifted writer. I felt all the emotion in the perfect places at the perfect time with the perfect pitch. I felt the love, anguish, darkness, light, sorrow, beauty that I was meant to as the reader.
I love the use of music the author infused in the book. I love how it feels like a living breathing thing that helps to guide the characters. I wish I could see the music and hear what they (the characters) wrote...but I guess that's the magic of a book...the reader gets to find their own song.
My personal favorite was the outstanding message of hope and light through darkness.
I personally can't wait for book 2, I’m curious to see what lies ahead and how this cast of characters is going to conquer the darkness…
