Trance Review

Summary:begins with a subtle vibration, a tingling.There is time to take only one breath.The trance begins.When it is through, Ashlyn is certain of two things:Someone she knows is about to die.And she is powerless to stop it.

My Feelings: Trance is Suspense filled and exhilarating. Ashlyn is still trying to cope fill her guilty feelings surrounding her mother death and it's even harder when her sister moves out her without saying goodbye all that is left of her is a few boxes of junk and the note she left between there mirror saying I'm sorry. It will be be better this way. she is only relived about this because she believes the traces she had since pre -school end but when they come back she finds her self having to face the truth. Ashlyn then meets Jake when she working in a photo studio hes sweet and understanding because he can relate with her guilt.The romance that evolves between Ashlyn and Jake is pure and heartwarming they both need each other to release the hurt that they both ignored and bottled up.Trance had me anxiously turning pages and biting my nails trying to figure out what was going to happen next and Gerber did deliver with some answers I love how Gerber does not overwrite she had just another detail and imagery. The way the story wraps up is surprising and a great way to tell the reader that there will indeed be a next book.

Overall: Trance is a puzzle that reveals itself page by page and in the next book I hope that we get to know why Ashlyn and Kara have these Trances.
