Review: Deadly Little Games

Deadly Little Games
Laurie Faria Stolarz
Publisher: Hyperion Book CH
Released: December 28, 2010

Camelia and Ben have discovered a powerful bond: They both possess the power of psychometry, the ability to sense things through touch. For Ben, the gift is a frightening liability. When he senses a strong threat or betrayal, he risks losing control and hurting people. Camelia's gift is more mysterious. When she works with clay, her hands sculpt messages her mind doesn't yet comprehend.

Before either teen has a chance to fully grasp these abilities, an unresolved family tragedy resurfaces in Camelia's life, irrevocably changing everything she cares about...

This is an interesting series. I'm not the hugest fan of it, but it keeps me intersted enough to keep reading it.

I like the whole psychomtetry part of this. I've never read anything like it. This probably what keeps me interested.

Camelia and Ben's relationship is not a good one. They are always fighting and keeping secrets from each other. I want them to be happy together but they are just not stable.

I did enjoy the mystery. It wasn't totally surprising, but I liked the elements to it.

Camelia is very sweet. I didn't agree with everything she does, but I know she means well.

Deadly Little Games isn't my favorite in this series. I will probably keep reading this series, though. They're not my favorite but I enjoy reading them

  1. I enjoy this series, but haven't picked up this third installment yet. I think the first book was the strongest one, but I will be getting this one sooner or later.

    Nice review! I'm hoping Ben and Camelia either work out their issues or call it quits because fighting and lies are not really what keeps me entertained.
