Nicole Williams is determined to figure out how to Channel her magical abilities properly. In order to do so, she must travel to Moses Lake, WA, to work under the tutelage of Albert, an elderly man who owns a creepy manor and a cello that actually works for her.
While visiting Albert, Nicole learns that a meteor has struck somewhere on his property, spreading a poison that infects the minds of anyone nearby, especially the family that lives closest to it.
Hoping for answers, Nicole decides to read the possessed leather book that has called to her for several months. Through reading, she discovers that the meteor is not as random as once thought, and that her purpose for being at Moses Lake is much higher than just learning to Channel with the proper cello.
Will Nicole be able to help the family and successfully complete the mission set out for her in the journal? Or will the poison destroy them all, including Nicole and her friends?
Perceive by Andrea Pearson (Mosaic Chronicles, #3)
Whoa! Answers are coming in spades! A mysterious book that calls to Nicole, a mysterious woman who tells her impossible things and finally, Nicole is getting a handle on her magic, sort of. Meanwhile, it seems that somewhere between the pages, Nicole and Austin are becoming an item, that is, if he can let go of his past girlfriend completely.
Now for the really big news: a meteor that has landed in a remote area, on the property of the very man who has helped Nicole with her magical abilities, coincidence or fate? Are Nicole’s powers connected to that meteor? Are the answers in the old book that has haunted her so long?
Andrea Pearson has nailed an incredible plot that borders on the corner of horror, science fiction and fantasy! Amazing twists, incredible revelations and edge-of-your-seat moments. Five stars for this plot idea for sure.
I was disappointed in the character development, these college age kids seem to be reverting back to ninth grade at times, and those moments came up like “that commercial” that interrupts right at a crucial moment. It created some big potholes in an otherwise fantastic road.
Incredible moments, big revelations, as well as some big reveals that fell flat. I liked PERCEIVE but couldn’t love it like I wanted to.
