Review: "Storm of Visions" by Christina Dodd

Storm of Visions is the first in Christina Dodd's new series, "The Chosen Ones". It's a paranormal romantic suspense novel about a group of people with ESP (called the Chosen Ones) who battle a group called The Others (who carry out the work of the devil). This first book introduces us to the psychic of the group, Jacqueline. Jacqueline is (literally) dragged back by her former lover, Caleb (her adoptive mother's bodyguard), to the group of six newly appointed Chosen Ones just before an explosion wipes out all the previous Chosen Ones. This new group has the duty of trying to work together, fight the Others, and figuring out who among them is a traitor.

The first few chapters were a bit confusing until you realize that Jacqueline actually knows the man who shows up in her house. It was also a bit slow going through the first half of the book, but I consider that a given since this is the first book of a new series. The author has a lot of world building to lay down while not giving away too much of future storylines. The next book in this series looks intriguing (it's the story of the mind controller of the group), and I look forward to seeing how this series plays out. My take:
