Overview

Forgetting who you are, your ambitions, your love is crippling....but remembering – embracing your purpose with a new sense of determination is more than empowering....its life altering.

Charlie Myers is on a life altering path that will cause the damned to humble in silence...

One night...just a few friends how could it go so wrong? That was the question seventeen year old Charlie Myers was asking when she found herself in the ER. Outwardly nothing was wrong with Charlie, she was a vision of perfect heath, internally she was battling a raging headache...one the doctor told her she would overcome shortly, but Charlie knew something else was wrong ...very wrong.

Part of her had been stolen....she was missing memories. Those memories were sacred. They held the key to her sanity. They told her that the sinister whispers, the shadows that came to life before her were not as ominous as she felt they were. They held the bond with her late father, a famed musician. They caused her to forget the one talent that allowed her to face the darkness that haunted her every waking hour. They also masked a much deeper bond, the face of the one that had stolen her heart, long before the age of seventeen.
Sitting in the ER with her angry mother she couldn't figure out what she missing – or even how. Her thoughts told her that she needed to protect Britain, a friend of hers, but that didn't make any sense – Britain didn't need to be protected from anyone, he was strong, young, and absurdly wealthy. Charlie also knew that even though her friend Bianca called Charlie her best friend that she didn't trust her ....she was almost sure she despised her, but she couldn't figure out why – or understand how random thoughts were telling her that she adored both Britain and Bianca – that they were her saviors – that they brought silence to the unstoppable whispers....but the silence scared Charlie. In her mind anyone or anything that could bring silence to something that dark could not be good.

Charlie wanted to stay in NY, figure out what she was missing, why, and who was behind it all, but her mother had other plans. Against her will, Charlie was sent to Salem to live with her sister....within that small town Charlie found her memories....and so much more.

Her story begins now.

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 author in exchange for honest review.

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…

I freakin' LOVE this book!! I mean, seriously LOVE it!! This was definitely one of those stay-up-all-night-to-finish-it books and it was worth every second of lost sleep! The mystery and tension had me hooked from the very beginning. Charlie had lost a good part of her memory so she didn't have a clue what was going on: the reader gets to live that right along with her. But even though I had no clue what was going on, I was fully absorbed and loving it! There are so many anxiety-filled moments where she is just right on the verge of remembering something that it almost drove me insane waiting for it to all come together! But through all that heartbreaking suspense there was this wonderful distraction named Draven. Just reading about him gives me goosebumps - he is perfect beyond words. I love their interaction as she tries to remember if she knew him before and if she should get to know him now. I will definitely have no problem remembering him - I can't get him outta my head!

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 world

See is the first book in the See series by Jamie Magee. It's also the first book I've read by this author. I loved the concept behind this story, but for me, the pacing was too slow. Once the book got to the half way point, Charlie finally started getting some of her memories back. Up until that point, I really wasn't given much detail as to what was going on. By themselves, I enjoyed each character. I liked their personalities and the connection they all seen to have (even though I don't really understand it yet). By the end, I still don't feel like I have near enough information from the plot to know what's going on. I know this book is also a part of another series, so maybe I should have read those books to have more of a grasp of the situation, but since this was book 1 in this series, I felt safe.

It's a little slow but I liked the concept of how they "see" and how music is involved.
