Never AloneNever Alone by Linn B. Halton

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Book Description from Amazon

Life is all about the choices we make….

 Holly is the envy of all her friends; she has lived with the gorgeous Will for five years. She supported him whilst his IT company grew and a life split between homes in the UK and Los Angeles beckons, offering them a glamorous and exciting lifestyle.
A series of terrifying encounters unleash an inherited psychic sensitivity within Holly and she begins to wonder whether the path she’s on is the one she’s destined to take. The thought of hurting the people she loves the most causes her to bury her emotions, until fate takes a hand. Suddenly her perfect life begins to unravel…
“It’s a gift to be shown something that allows you to make a difference and alter the outcome of someone else’s life. However, the weight of the responsibility that goes along with that is huge and what about the ethics? The thing I have to ask myself is how did my actions change the future?”  –Holly Elizabeth Atherton
What I thought of it

For anyone whose psychic abilities are awakening, the new experiences and sensitivities can be scary and unsettling. Linn Halton deals with Holly’s increasing psychic awareness with empathy and compassion, whilst also keeping the storyline interesting and moving along at a fast pace.

I found Holly, Matt and Celia very likeable. It can be difficult for some people to deal with burgeoning spirituality and/or psychic awareness, and I was glad that Holly had people around her who could offer her unconditional support as her perceptions and interests changed.

As with Linn Halton’s other books, the characters in Never Alone are well-rounded and believable. The book holds plenty of tension and pushed me to keep reading so that I finished it within two days.

I’m honestly not sure how I feel about the ending – all I will say is that Never Alone was a genuinely enjoyable read, and earns a solid 4 stars from me. I’m looking forward to starting the author’s ‘Angels Among Us’ series soon.
