Pandora's Daughter by Iris Johansen

For as long as she can remember, successful young physician Megan Blair has tried to silence the voices in her head—voices that bring her to the edge of madness and terror. Megan possesses psychic powers that have been dormant for years, hidden deep in the past she's tried so desperately to forget. But now everything has come to a boiling point—someone is trying to kill her, and others are trying to use her, including the deadly and seductive Neal Grady. Shocking secrets about her life and her mother's death bombard her as she fights to take control of her heritage and save herself and everything she believes in. Grady holds the key to understanding her future, a future in which Megan's life will never be the same.

If she survives to have a future.

The e-book is hard to read due to the misspellings, words that are hyphenated that shouldn't be and typos on every page (yes - every page). Additionally it's missing punctuation or has alpha characters in place of punctuation. I can't get through this book since it appears to have been typed up by a 5 year old. Its very distracting. Publisher - please fix your typos and provide an update to download.

This is the worst written novel that I have read by the author. I kept waiting for it to get better, but it was not to be. I had to force myself to finish it.

Megan Blair always heard the voices whisper inside her head that she assumed were her friends although some of the things they told her frightened her. However, they failed to save her mom Sarah from a killer so when she became orphaned following the death of her beloved mother she shut down the voices.================= A dozen years later, someone tries to kill Megan. Although she is not sure why, she believes the culprit killed her mother, who shared the rare skill of the voices with her, but hid the truth that they are both descendants of Pandora from her daughter. This unknown adversary wants Megan and all her blood relatives dead. If murdering her extended family is needed so be it as collateral damage occurs in war. Megan must reactivate the voices if she is to protect her family and herself from a brilliant maniac even if she succeeds in tapping into the voices she muted, Megan knows the probability of failure against her anonymous enemy remains slim.================== Iris Johansen will be on top of the bestsellers lists again with this exciting paranormal thriller that grips the audience from the moment Sarah tells her beloved Megan to run just before dying and never slows down until the final confrontation. The story line is fast-paced and loaded with action although a romantic subplot seems unnecessary. Fans will appreciate Megan as her ¿normal¿ life as a doctor is destroyed by a maniac whose one reason for living is killing all the potential Pandoras.----= Harriet Klausner

A very disappointing novel. Pandora's Daughter had the makings of a great story but instead it was dry with undeveloped characters. It lacked emotion and good character detail. The plot was slow and spotty. Difficult to read. I felt Iris Johansen painfully strained herself writing this story. I had to force myself to finish with the hope that the ending would be worth the torture. It wasn't.

I don't see what anyone sees in Iris Johansen. Her writing is just too adolescent. Her technical data so inaccurate. I've never known anyone to have been pinned to their seat by an airbag. Disjointed, too much angst, anxiety. Characters just aren't believeable, their dialogue and behaviors are too weird. She needs to repeat her English class and perhaps a creative writing course or two, if anything could help. I'm not a fourth of the way through this clinker and I'm ready to throw in the towel. There are too many good writers out there these days to even give this one a second look. I can't figure out how she's made it this far.

This book could have been fantastic but the characters were poorly developed. This is not to say I didn't enjoy it, I just feel she could have really hit this out of the park instead of bunting. I was a fan of Iris Johansen at first but after several books, realized almost every plot (with exception of this one) is pretty much identical to the last. I would certainly suggest this book to others but it's not epic by any means.

This is actually one of my favorites for Ms. Johansen. I enjoyed the characters & the story. My only "complaint" would be that I wish Megan was as strong throughout the book as she was in the beginning.

Once again, Iris Johansen took a potentially good story idea and messed it up with bad character development. They seem so lifeless that I kept getting the image of Joe Friday from the old TV series 'Dragnet'. The only way I was able to get through the book was by skimming the last 100 pages.
