At the risk of sounding cliché, one awesome read! This speculative thriller is full of action, intrigue and a touch of science fiction. The plot twists and turns as we follow the lives of fraternal twins – a brother and sister, each of whom has an unexplainable, seemingly supernatural, ‘gift’. Adopted separately as infants, neither knows of the other’s existence until fate brings them together to combat a complex web of deceit and subterfuge..."

Split Sense's characters had depth which made them believable, and the surprising elements of the unfolding story kept suspense high. The drama nuanced as more was revealed about the characters, and this kept my interest strong. Some science fiction is 'roll your eyes' far-fetched or is overly technical in explaining how it could REALLY be possible. Split Sense was neither. Instead I was easily roped in to its believable premise and then enjoyed the unfolding story of the interesting people involved. Great read!

Split Sense was so good! It was so exciting and suspenseful that I couldn't put it down. It had me guessing the whole way through but the ending had so many surprises! I hope she writes another one like this.

I quite enjoyed this book; it was exciting and held my attention all the way through. I enjoyed getting to know the characters and was surprised by a couple of twists I didn't see coming. I would probably have given it five stars except for a couple of very minor inconsistencies and the need for a more thorough edit (occasional errors in punctuation, capitalization, and grammar detracted from the reading experience). Overall, though, I would definitely recommend this fast-paced novel to anyone who likes an exciting read.

This book was spectacular! I recommend it to anyone who likes suspenseful page turners. A bad drug company is experimenting on children, what could be more tense than that? Excellent writing style, dramatic, interesting. Very brief bad language, which was disappointing to me when I was expecting a 100% clean Christian book. Very good overall, though, and I enjoyed it a lot!

Split Sense by Barbara Ellen Brink is, at the risk of sounding cliché, a real page turner. It is very well written; full of action, twists and turns, intrigue and a well thought out though complex story line. The book begins in 1995 with a frightened schizophrenic woman being chased and killed, but not before her twin babies are taken alive. Thus begins a complex web of deceit and subterfuge that centers around a pharmaceutical company that has been experimenting on pregnant women. The hope is to find a cure for mental illness, but instead, a deeper and deeper web of lies forms. The infants that are saved are separated and a company employee takes one to raise as his own son. The girl twin was presumed dead by the company, but through some undercover work of her own, the attending doctor saves the girl and places her with another family, unbeknown to anyone. We progress through the years, visiting both twins as they grow and mature. Each one seems to have a special ‘gift’. The boy can sense other people’s feelings and even begins to read minds. The girl has an unexplainable gift for healing through music. Meanwhile, the pharmaceutical company has continued its experiments on another set of twins, with frightening results. Zander, the twin boy, begins looking for answers, but then those who know the truth begin to die, either through freak accidents or other means. The tension just keeps building. In the end, the story comes to happy and satisfying conclusion, but not before we are left with another surprise twist right at the end. I highly recommend this book to those who love a fast paced story with lots of twists and intrigue.
