Review: Fearless (King #1) by Tawdra Kandle

Book Blurb

Every gift has consequences . . .

From USA Today bestselling author Tawdra Kandle comes the first book in an intriguing series filled with magic and suspense. Readers of the Twilight books and the Black Mage series will fall in love with the secrets of this small town and its mystical inhabitants . . .

Tasmyn Vaughn didn't expect much when her dad's job moved them to a small town in Florida; it was just another new school. But King is a town founded by magic and steeped in mystery, and soon Tasmyn's ability to hear others' thoughts is the least of her worries.

There's Ms. Lacusta, the science teacher who just might be teaching more than chemistry, and then there's Nell Massler, the ultimate mean girl whose extracurricular activities include blood rituals. And she wants Tasmyn's blood next.

Entangled in a web of first love, quirky and secretive townsfolk, magic and blood spells, she discovers the town's secrets aren't just bizarre, they're deadly.

Save Tomorrow is a series of paranormal romances that begins in the small town of King, Florida, winds through the Serendipity and Recipe for Death books, and finally culminates in Age of Aquarius, the inevitable showdown that ties all the characters together in a fight to stop the ultimate evil.

Toot's Review by Stacy Sabala

Tasmyn is starting a new school.  She isn’t thrilled to hear what her new classmates think about her.  She can hear the thoughts of those around her.  She has always had this gift.  Her parents have taught her to protect herself and keep her gift a secret.  They fear her safety if someone learns about what she can do.
Unfortunately she makes an enemy her first day in chemistry class.  A girl named Nell shows open hostility toward her and two other girls, Casey and Liza, follow suit.  In fact Nell gets in her face after class where Tasmyn is saved just in time by a boy named Michael.
Michael has grown up in this area.  He is also a senior.  He takes one look at Tasmyn and feels an instant connection.  He invites her to sit at his table during lunch.  He introduces he to his friends and offers her a ride home.  They become fast friends and even more.
Tasmyn, on the other hand, is picking up some evil thoughts.  Something is going on in the school.  Her chemistry teacher, Ms. Lacusta gives her the creeps and Nell seems to be up to something.  When Tasmyn learns what it really is, she is shocked.  She gets thrown into a dangerous world of witchcraft.
I liked this book.  It kept you guessing what was really going on.  The reader learns as Tasmyn does.  Her gift is fascinating.  You can see how lonely she is because of it.  Her parents are extremely overprotective.  So when Michael enters the picture, it throws her world into a tailspin.  He is interested in her but doesn’t want to come on too strong.  She hears his thoughts and learns his motivations.  I liked watching their relationship grow.  It was truly sweet.  Tasmyn can’t believe her life has changed.  She is truly happy for the first time.

It’s sad how her parents keep her contained for her protection.  It is understandable but it is hurting her.  She hides her feelings for Michael and what she has truly done.  Nell, on the other hand, is a horrible girl.  She is the classic definition of a mean girl.  She begins her assault early and doesn’t let up until someone makes her.  The ending is quite surprising as everything comes to a climax.  It was great read.  I can’t wait to see what happens next.  I give it a 4 out of 5.
