Jamie Magee - SEE blog Tour, Giveaway & Review







SEE - by Jamie Magee (back cover summary)
Forgetting who you are, your ambitions, your love is crippling….but remembering – embracing your purpose with a new sense of determination is more than empowering….its life altering. Charlie Myers is on a life altering path that will cause the damned to humble in silence…


One night…just a few friends how could it go so wrong? That was the question seventeen year old Charlie Myers was asking when she found herself in the ER. Outwardly nothing was wrong with Charlie, she was a vision of perfect heath, internally she was battling a raging headache…one the doctor told her she would overcome shortly, but Charlie knew something else was wrong …very wrong.

Part of her had been stolen….she was missing memories. Those memories were sacred. They held the key to her sanity. They told her that the sinister whispers, the shadows that came to life before her were not as ominous as she felt they were. They held the bond with her late father, a famed musician. They caused her to forget the one talent that allowed her to face the darkness that haunted her every waking hour. They also masked a much deeper bond, the face of the one that had stolen her heart, long before the age of seventeen.

Sitting in the ER with her angry mother she couldn’t figure out what she missing – or even how. Her thoughts told her that she needed to protect Britain, a friend of hers, but that didn’t make any sense – Britain didn’t need to be protected from anyone, he was strong, young, and absurdly wealthy. Charlie also knew that even though her friend Bianca called Charlie her best friend that she didn’t trust her ….she was almost sure she despised her, but she couldn’t figure out why – or understand how random thoughts were telling her that she adored both Britain and Bianca – that they were her saviors – that they brought silence to the unstoppable whispers….but the silence scared Charlie. In her mind anyone or anything that could bring silence to something that dark could not be good.

Charlie wanted to stay in NY, figure out what she was missing, why, and who was behind it all, but her mother had other plans. Against her will, Charlie was sent to Salem to live with her sister….within that small town Charlie found her memories….and so much more...



MY THOUGHTS.

Jamie has started See off , having us all in wander as to what has happened to Charlie and why she cant remember.  We know she has been given something that has affected her memory, what she must do now is remember.. She is sent home to Salem to live with her sister and regain her memories.

Jamie has Given the reader dribs and drabs into what  is happening. Unsure - Charlie goes home to a life she is unsure about - whom she can trust - and talk to and her memories are almost non existant from that night. 

 Jamie has us hooked from the very first page, wandering in which direction she will go - the storyline and the characters also giving the reader qulams about whom we can really trust.. and whom does she really know.. No really answers are truly put forth for Charlie she is certainly on a road of discovery. She is sent back home to help her recovery... But what will Charlie find out and is there more than meets the eye ?

Here she meets Draven- for some reason she knows she can trust him. He tells her she must @See ... he is compassionate and forth coming, and someone whom Charlie can easily let into her life. Jamie has put forth all emotions well between the pair = to  give us that chemistry we all love to see ;)  Draven was such a sweety <3

Music is Charlies saviour - it keeps  away the whispers... This alone had me intrigued throughout... Who are they - why do they follow her and the music seems to qwell the noise.  Jamie has certainly created a unique and fascinating storyline with this story and Im sure the reader will enjoy this alone. Its always great to pick up a story we have not read before - that involves something different ;)


See comes across as dark storyline from the beginning, the whispers and the not knowing is the hard part for Charlie as well as me being the reader, we truly don’t know what is really happening till towards the end of this book, as things start to fall in place and the end of the tunnel brings a certain light, but also a fog that has not quiet lifted.

The characters where easily likeable, hotties for us to swoon over  ** Draven ** he was charming -  mysterioulsy hot !!!! and also intriguing.  As the story progress so does the mystery unravel, including the parts the characters play in this story.

Many emotions are portrayed within in See, Jamie grasps this well and puts forth a storyline that will not only pique your interest but have you curious as to where book two and Charlie is now headed.

Music played an important role throughout **SEE** - giving Charlie that calm she needed at the best of times, ties in her past , and also her future ??

I look forward to book two to see where Jamie takes us next ~` 

4 /5 stars ;)
