I still hope that Ben and Camelia end up together. 7. Go away Adam. Lastly 8. Camelia, maybe those voices you hear aren't for your ability. Maybe you're just schizophrenic. I don't know, just a theory.

    Just a warning, there will be spoilers below. So I really loved this book, up until the last page. I was all set to give a 5 star rating and then the last page ticked me off. Hence only 4 stars. First off, I do not like that Camelia chose Adam. I like his character, but I feel like they are not right together. Something about them doesn't seem to fit, in my opinion anyway. Ben, while he has his trust issues, just seems like he belongs with Camelia. He has also saved her numerous times and the las Just a warning, there will be spoilers below.

Ben, while he has his trust issues, just seems like he belongs with Camelia. He has also saved her numerous times and the last time doesn't even take the credit. He needs to cut himself some slack and stop thinking he doesn't deserve to be happy, becase that is clearly the case. While he may think Camelia doesn't deserve him, he never stops to take into account what she wants. Also, his pulling away clearly shows how much he loves Camelia, whereas I just get a very friend zone vibe from Adam. This is where my problems are. I feel like the author could have made the relationship between Camelia and Adam seem less platonic (at least on Camelias part), then maybe I would not have been so mad at the ending. I just felt like it was wrong somehow. Now to impatiently await the final book and hope that either Adam and Camelia's relationship becomes more believable or that Camelia kicks Adams butt to the curb for Ben. On another note, poor Ben has now lost two girls to the same guy. That has got to hurt. Also, we all know that Adam initially came to town with the express purpose of stealing Camelia from Ben. It seems to me, that despite his "change of heart", he has succeeded in his initial plan. The more I think about it, the more I'm not buying it.

    Camelia

    OK, this book doesn't come out until December 6th, but I still can't wait to read it. Before I read this, I went to the author's website, and she wasn't telling who the other girl Ben was seeing was, so I thought, "Oh no, is it Rena Maruso? Because now they're chemistry partners, so what if?" I'm happy to know it isn't her, but I still hate the fact that Ben is torturing Camelia, even if he doesn't fully mean to. And, what the hell kind of a name is that? It's pretty, but Ben and Alejandra just OK, this book doesn't come out until December 6th, but I still can't wait to read it.

And, what the hell kind of a name is that? It's pretty, but Ben and Alejandra just doesn't sound...right like Ben and Camelia did, ya know? So, to be honest, I'll bet the person in danger is Alejandra, and when Camelia tries to tell Ben, he isn't talking to her, or he gets all beligerent over what she's suggesting. God she just needs to get over Adam, get down on her hands and knees and ask beg Ben to forgive her. That's what I would do, especially if the I was the actual Camelia, because trust me when I say that the bond netween them can't be broken. I have the feeling that they need each other more than they can comprehend. I still can't wait to read this book!!!!!!! AAAAHHHH!!!!!!!! Added Feb. 1st, after reading: OMG! I knew it! I mean, Adam, really? (this is about the ending, which I thought wasn't (view spoiler)[given credit for saving her this time! I mean, he has saved her life five times now, and he still doen't think he deserves her. Oh, and I thik Alejandra is a bit beothcy. From a fan, I pray to God she ends up with Ben, not Adam. (hide spoiler)] Ben, you need to get over yourself (you too, Camelia) and and stop all of your nonsense. (Though Mz.Stolarz portrays it fairly well).

    This book is the fourth in the Touch series and it starts out with Camelia hearing voices that call her worthless and tell her to die. She thinks she might end up like her aunt, so she gets help (finally) from a therapist who specializes in what's going on with her.

As it turns out Camelia is having premonitions about a girl in trouble and she wants to help her. I really liked this book even though I didn't like the ending because I like Ben way better than Adam. I think that Camelia should just forget about Adam because she obviously has a connection with Ben that she can never have with Adam. I loved the letters that Jack and "Jill" wrote to the each other especially the last letter "Jill" wrote about how she was saved. It made me cry because it was so...sweet. The Ben part not the Jack & "Jill" parts. This book was really interesting especially when you didn't know whether something was really happening or if it was a hallucination. I also found out that I like Adam but only as Camelia's friend. I felt bad for Wes and Kimmie because of how hard their lives seem to be, at least Camelia tries to be a good friend. I really liked this book and could barely put it down once I was a few pages into the story! The only reason it got four stars was because there wasn't enough Ben for me, he was there but it was like he was in the background or there only when needed and Adam was still ruining things for Camelia and Ben.

Without making this spoiler-ish, I will hint at the fact that this plot is very believable and yet it's about a familiar (for the series) predicament -- someone's stalking a student at Camille's high school. But this time, Camille's voices get louder and her premonitions become actual visions that rip her from reality and into a future scenario. Laurie's descriptions of these disturbing moments are so vivid that, at times, I actually shuddered a little. These parts of the plot also balance out other points where the plot becomes a little predictable. As for Ben being in the picture, well, he is and he isn't. He has an excuse to be away for a few days just as the plot builds. No worries, however, because Adam, ever patient, is there to help. The big climactic scene is one that is filled with whoa, whoa, whoa and the plot twists just enough to make you want to keep reading. For Ben fans, like myself, there is also a sweet moment (unfortunately it's not one that Camille witnesses but it's one readers are allowed to see) and that moment is worth the read. This series is one that I keep saying should be a TV series, and there, I've said it again. Someone please make it one, so I can tune in each week and get my fix of characters I've grown to like -- a lot.

    I love this series! This book had just the right amount of mystery and suspense in it. And I'm glad they added the DM explanation in. I LOVE KIMMIE AND WES!!! They were my favorite in this book. This Deadly Little Voices was good... but I have a problem. Throughout the entire book I was pissed with Ben. He didn't have very many parts, but when he did I felt like clawing my eyes out so I couldn't read it... BUT something happens at the end that caused me to reconsider him. ****SPOILER ALERT****** I love this series! This book had just the right amount of mystery and suspense in it.

    I'd forgotten how much I loved these books. I've been reading the authors book series 'Blue is for nightmares' and I must say it doesn't hold a candle to the Touch series. Both have to deal with crazies and stalkers, but there's just something about this series that is way interesting. Either way, it's nice to see that this author's writing has improved over time. Overall, the plotline is the same— another stalker scenario, but I don't care because I live for that kind of stuff haha. Wow..where I'd forgotten how much I loved these books.

Overall, the plotline is the same— another stalker scenario, but I don't care because I live for that kind of stuff haha. Wow..where do I start with Camelia? I felt for her in the last book. Ben was being a douche. He was always keeping secrets and being distant. This time around though the person I hated was Camelia herself. Well, I didn't really HATE her. It was more like I liked her as a character, but there were certain moments where I wanted to bitchslap her for her actions. I actually liked how she realized that Ben wasn't good for her, or more clearly, that their relationship wasn't very healthy. I also commend Ben for admitting that Camelia didn't deserve to date a guy like him. I liked how he legit was thinking of what was best for her. It wasn't a constant 'I can't be with you! ... BUT I CAN'T STAY AWAY!!'. I really don't like Ben for Camelia, but in this book, he wasn't that bad. The times where I didn't like Camelia all had to do with Adam. I must say that I like Camelia and Adam together better than Camelia and Ben. I feel like I'm in the minority because all reviews I've seen were like, 'C+B 4EVER'! I loved Adam. I could tell that he's a different person from the second book. It's easy to see that he honestly likes Camelia. However, Camelia is such a bitch to him. Oh my god, she made me soo angry! Since Ben and her broke up in the last book, she's been hanging with Adam more often. Actually, not really 'hanging out'. More like, Camelia uses him for rides to places and dumps him once she has no more use for him. Scenarios like this happened multiple times. She calls him to drive her somewhere and when he tries to talk to her, she's just like, 'I need to be alone right now...'. She was just rude and it seemed like she was using him with no regard to his feelings. Also, Adam was trying to be a good friend to her even though, she didn't want to date him, and he was cool with that. He tries to cheer her up when she's sad and attempts to get her to open up to her feelings. This was one of my biggest problems with Camelia. Poor Adam is trying so hard to talk to her, but all she does is push him away and refuse to confide in him. Adam was so sweet to her and she just crapped all over his feelings. She kept mentioning that she was treating Adam like how Ben treated her when they were dating, all secrets and no trust, but she continues to act that way towards him even though she knows she's hurting him. The plot itself was creepy and I loved it, especially the Jack and Jill letters (freaky!). I must say that I was confused a bit by the twist and I felt like I should have been dumbfounded, but I was just like, 'ok then'. Camelia's fight with Kimmie was stupid as hell. I still can't understand why exactly they were fighting because the reason I thought wasn't that big of a deal. I was really excited to read about Aunt Alexia and I'll say that this book didn't disappoint. I loved reading about her, even though she was cryptic and a bit kooky. While I had a bit to complain about, mostly involving Adam haha, I really did like this book. I can't wait to read the next one. Hopefully, Camelia decides to (view spoiler)[stay broken up with Ben (hide spoiler)] because I was mega happy when (view spoiler)[she got with Adam at the end (hide spoiler)] . I remember shouting hell yes when I got to that part. I've read that number five might be the last one, so I'm interested to see how things get wrapped up...

    This is a quick review of the fourth book in the Touch Series. Not reading the series? Maybe don't read the review. I try to keep these spoiler free, but ya just never know. I am a huge fan of Ms. Stolarz skillz of a writer. I love her fast-paced, quirky style filled with wit and mystery with a side of paranormal wth?.

I try to keep these spoiler free, but ya just never know. I am a huge fan of Ms. Stolarz skillz of a writer. I love her fast-paced, quirky style filled with wit and mystery with a side of paranormal wth?. With very little she is able to not only set a scene but give us a sense of character and setting. Deadly Little Voices (the fourth book in her Touch Series) delivers all this and more. However... There were a few things I had a hard time suspending belief over. And, in the interest of keeping this short (but sweet, of course) review as spoiler free as possible, I will only say this much: a. If a person (young or old) were to go to a trained professional and say "hey, I hear voices that tell me I'm a loser and should end my life" I'm not sure they would immediately jump to the conclusion said voice hearing person had a paranormal ability. Even if said voice hearing person assured them that they did so in fact have supernatural abilities... ya know what I'm sayin'? b. It is hard for a reader to go from thinking a character is a not-so-nice-person (i.e. douche-bag who tries to destroy lives) to a viable love interest. When said douche-bag is also claiming to be a non-secret-keeper yet is a liar-liar-pants-on-fire, well... it makes it even harder. c. There is a limit to emo-retard-i-love-you-but-i'm-not-good-enough-for-you for any story and the Touch Series is standing on the edge of a cliff about to jump off into no mans land. I beg of the author to simmer down on this emo insanity and help the characters in this series to lighten up and learn to talk to others. In conclusion: The mystery in the novel was nice and creepy, if not a tad predictable. I love me some Ben and Camelia even when I want to slap some sense into them. And I'm holding out my overall verdict for this series whilst we await the final novel, which will be out at in December. *sighs*

Camilia learns all through the series that she has this special powers that help her tell the future throuh her sculpting.

Now you might be thinking "Oh,that might not be so bad. The guy saves her they kiss and live happily ever after." but nooooooo. That never really hsppens. You know why. Because Ben accidentally killed his last girlfriend(she fell off a cliff) and he can't really trust someone with all his secrets, bot even Camilia. SO in this particular book, Camilia is supposed to be without Ben for a few days when thedangerous moment happens. When she sneaks into a house and starts fighting the psyschotic bad guy(the bad guy is always psychotic)and I;m like. 'you go girl. That's right girl power.' Then she gets knocked out and I;m like not again because I her Ben is fighting the bad guy. But when she wakes up Ben tells Camilia that it was Adam, Ben's ex-best friend because Ben's dead ex-girl friend was cheating on her with him and Adam has feelings for Camilia, who rescued her. In the end, Adam never tells Camilia about how Ben really fought the bad guy even though he vowed no more secrets. UUUUUUUUUGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Anyway, can't wait for Deadly Little Lessons!!!

    I really need to stop putting off reading some of these sequels to series I had started liking then started losing interest. I would like to finish the series. With this I had started, then stopped then continued where I left off then put it aside again. Until I was like, you know what, I remembered liking some things about it and so finally picked it up again. For the first half its a 3, since well, its good and all but the love triangle ish I guess you can call it, sort of, was just awkward and I really need to stop putting off reading some of these sequels to series I had started liking then started losing interest.

And the second half its a 4. What I like about this author and her books, is she can write suspense, atmosphere and tension. And she does it really well of course in this one. Like her other books in this series and the Blue is for Nightmares books. Plus Kimmie and Wes are awesome in this. Not that they weren't before. And of course the creepiness went up a notch. I like how the story has in between whether diary entries that somehow connect with the story going on now and that it will lead up to something near the climax. And it does. Another really good sequel. And I'm curious what will happen in the final one and how will it end of course.

    Since I'd already read the first three books in this series, I decided to take on the fourth installment when it showed up at my local library. Though Stolarz's writing continues to be easy and quick to read, the story lacks any real substance or originality. Not surprisingly, the plot involves Camelia's touch powers and yet another stalker out to hurt someone in her town.

The love triangle between Ben (mysterious and brooding) and Adam (sweet, hot, and understanding) persists, and the side-kick characters of Wes and Kimmie continue to say ridiculous things at inappropriate times. With nothing really new added to the story or Stolarz's stock plot line, I found it difficult to care about any of the characters, their relationships, or the dangers that might be following them. I'll probably read the final book, Deadly Little Lessons, when it comes out just to see how things end, but I'm not excited about it.

    I love this series!!! Every book is more intense and suspenseful than the next. With every book I can never figure out who the bad guy is and I'm always on the edge of my seat. This one is no exception, I could not put it down and read it in one day, Deadly Little Voices is my favorite so far in the series with Deadly Little Secret a close seceond.

Her friends Wes and Kimmie are so sweet and supportive and care for her so much they're willing to do anything for her. Ben and Adam are sweet boys too and I hope she picks Ben in the end. He is so caring and attentive I just want to wrap him up and put him in my pocket. And I like the twist this one had, refering to a character in a previous book in the series, very clever working that little piece of info in there Stolarz very very clever.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Stolarz is talented, the way she twisted in all 4 plots of the first 4 books together, shows that all the books are related to each other and that there is some sort of connection between each book that further explains the other and fills in some missing gaps that were purposely put there. I am IN LOVE with Ben! Even though I don't quite understand him, did he want to be with Camelia or not? If he really did love her then why was he treating her that way? Why didn't he try harder for her?

    This book is way better than the first 3. By far. I did find it to be predictable but in a better way. I enjoyed the interactions of the Aunt. I like where the next story seems to be going.

    A positive is that I was shocked once more on who was the victim in this story. However, the recaps were yet again on my nerves. It's pretty much the same story over and over with Ben and Adam and Adam pushing her away and all that crap. I have a really bad feeling about Adam. The stalkerish part of the book wasn't nearly as interesting or thrilling as the others. A positive is that I was shocked once more on who was the victim in this story.

    I guess I've come in full circle with this series. I know it's not over yet, but when I first started this it was the day before Christmas Eve, I think. It was somewhere around Christmas. My family and I were in Phoenix to visit my brother, and wanted to go to the mall in Scottsdale. Well, they had a Borders that would be closing soon, so of course I had to investigate. It was nearly impossible, though, because there was stacks of books everywhere, covering books that were already on the shelves I guess I've come in full circle with this series.

It was nearly impossible, though, because there was stacks of books everywhere, covering books that were already on the shelves. I did find a cool photography book about abandoned insane asylums, and some cello CDs by Bach (yeah, I still listen to CDs). I was browsing the teen section, in the area where they have books about girls in prestigious schools with rich parents, when I spotted Deadly Little Lies. At the time, I didn't know it was the second of a series. But I really like reading about psychic powers, which doesn't seem to be a popular genre in YA anymore. So I bought it and read it at our hotel after my brother and I watched Ghost (ironic, yes?). It didn't take me long to realize it was the second book (who was Matt?! Had he really recently kidnapped this girl?), but I decided to read it anyways, since the author explained everything. I really liked it, and ended up buying the first one on my iPod, because the other Borders by the Cheesecake Factory was closing down as well, but didn't have it. It, arguably, wasn't as great as the second. But I read the third, and when I just happened to see this fourth one sticking out in my neighborly Barnes and Noble, which is also closing. OKAY, back to the actual book, Voices. I did like this book. I liked seeing Wes and Kimmie again, and her mom's vegan tendencies and her really cool dad. But there was something missing...maybe Camilia's brain? There is one girl she suspects might be in danger, and even to the end she is still positive it's her, even when all the signs obviously say it's not. It was during these moments in the book that I just wanted to smack her or shake her. That's not exactly bad, because it means I actually care about the characters and what happens to them. I was up late last night, determined to finish the last 13 chapters or so. Which I did, around midnight. Now it's Christmas Eve, and I woke up today realizing I started the series around this time. So much has changed in a year, not just in the books but in my life. Most of the changes are good...really good, in my opinion. I have to say two more things... 1. OMFG THE ENDING. It made me so mad, not at the author but the characters. I mean, really dude? That's a great way to start a relationship! 2. WHY is every book store in the state closing down?!

    Unfortunately, I'm getting the feeling that this series has taken a turn downhill for me. The first one was great. The whole psychometry theme is unique, and I appreciate that for what it is. But... Can that drama really happen to the same girl that many times? What's wrong with this town that people keep getting kidnapped and almost killed in each story? And the strange thing? It's always the same thing! Someone gets kidnapped or abducted. Sure, the details change, but it's the same basic story.

It's always the same thing! Someone gets kidnapped or abducted. Sure, the details change, but it's the same basic story. The characters bugged me, too. There's nothing about Camelia that really makes me want to like her all that much. Ben is frustrating because he's so closed off, and there wasn't enough of him in this story to make me really care if he ever DOES come around. Adam is a decent guy, but again, he's just okay. It's not very realistic. So, I've already mentioned that everyone in this town gets kidnapped or stalked or attacked, but that's not all that's unbelievable. Everything just seems a little to easy for Camelia. She finds the house a little too easily. People accept her abilities a little too easily. Even the fight scene is unbelievable. And how does the father NOT know or care about what's going on under his roof? CREEPY! I also don't understand the bullying. Why are they taking out their prejudices against someone barely even related to the issue? It felt like a cheap trick to try and throw the reader off the trail, but it really just got annoying. The "there are two" comment kind of trashed that whole attempt. It was a little predictable. There were also a few scenes that were just unnecessary and did nothing to progress the plot. 1) The sketch class. Seriously? What was the point? Other than to have a cute/awkward/uncomfortable way to reintroduce Adam to the story? I could think of better ways. 2) The labyrinth scene. Other than providing the setting for an impromptu confusing make-out session, I didn't really see that much of a point to it. 3) The whole locker room/glass/Candies scene. Again, was this just an attempt to throw the reader off the trail? It had nothing to do with anything! I'm confused as to where to go from here. I've already invested the time and money into purchasing and reading all the other books in the series, but I really can't see that I'm invested in the story enough to continue with the series.

    I really really love this series, though I must admit that I had my doubts initially for the second and third books because the plot didn't seem to be going anywhere, other than Camelia having premonitions of something bad happening or being stalked by someone. But in this book, Camelia's Aunt Alexia comes to live with her and yes Camelia is still having premonitions, but they seem to become worse and she thinks she is hearing voices like her aunt. My favourite part of this book is where Camelia I really really love this series, though I must admit that I had my doubts initially for the second and third books because the plot didn't seem to be going anywhere, other than Camelia having premonitions of something bad happening or being stalked by someone. But in this book, Camelia's Aunt Alexia comes to live with her and yes Camelia is still having premonitions, but they seem to become worse and she thinks she is hearing voices like her aunt. My favourite part of this book is where Camelia seeks professional help for her psychometry, trying to make sense of her condition and whether she will end up like Aunt Alexia. And what she gets out of the sessions is the fact that she has a choice. Her powers are similar to Aunt Alexia's, but she is different from her aunt in that she still has a choice- to let the powers control her sanity or to embrace them. This, I find, is very empowering. Ben, in this book, breaks my heart really badly. You know he wants to be with Camelia, but he has trust issues, he has his own secrets and he is unwilling to open up to people, even if he knows they are in danger. And the most heartbreaking thing of all is that he admits to Camelia that he is not right for her at this point in time, yet he is still watching over her through Adam and evidently still loves her. And Adam, he has changed since the second book and you can tell he truly cares for Camelia and is willing to accept her and her powers. So yes, I'm as torn between these two boys as Camelia is. The conflict in this book is one which scared the crap out of me. It is a stalker, stalking someone Camelia thinks she knows and the letters/excerpts which Stolarz writes in between Camelia's narrative shed light on the obsessiveness of the stalker and how oblivious the victim is to the weird obsession, thinking that the guy is being nice to her. This time, it was difficult to guess who the victim was and like Camelia, I assumed wrongly as well. Kudos to Stolarz for a brilliant plotline. Overall, I felt this book has upped the stakes quite a bit and I'm anxious to know what will happen in the final book, how Camelia's powers will develop and affect the people around her and most of all, who Camelia will finally choose.

    I love the Touch series. Contemporary horrors/thrillers are just my thing. BUT… being the fourth book in this series, I expected Deadly Little Voices to give me a little bit more satisfaction than it did. This isn’t to say that it’s unsatisfying, because it is. It’s just that I’ve come to expect a bit more action, rather than stalling, from this series. The plot is always chilling and exciting, keeping me hooked and guessing from page one.

But the whole situation between Camelia and Ben and Adam just makes me want to rip my hair out. I can’t even begin to explain how frustrating yet lackluster it is. You can tell there’s tension – in fact, it’s all up in your face. And so you wait. And you wait. And you wait. And then the tension explodes! ….And then two seconds later it dissipates. I think this is supposed to be some sort of love triangle, but I’ve honestly got no clue now. I could go on and on about that horrific ending. Okay, I’m exaggerating. But it really worked me up. You’ll know what I mean when you get to it. As far as other characters are concerned, I was so happy to see Aunt Alexia’s involvement grow! Kimmie and Wes open up a bit more as well. Yet, there’s still more to them that we’re not quite getting, and again, it’s just making me frustrated. When I’m four books into a series, I want information. Progression. Interest. The constant pulling from all sides of the involved parties is waning. Something’s gotta give, and it’s not me. Hopefully everything will come together in Deadly Little Lessons.

    I absolutely love these books! This book is the 4th book in the series, and its just as good as the last 3, if not better! This series reminds me a little of the Body Finder series, so if you like that series, you will like this! This book was full of suspense, just the way I like it! I could not put it down, I started it last night at about 5:00, took a break around 6:30 for supper, then went back to reading until I finished!

There is also a lot of love angst--Camelia's first love, Ben, is trying to get some distance from her. Camelia is really not all right with that, but she's trying to cope. It reminds me a little of New Moon, only she's not nearly as depressed as Bella was. But of course, there is a guy waiting in the wings for Camelia, Ben's former best friend, Adam. Camelia deals with a lot in this book: Ben, Adam, her aunt who has the same ability as Camelia, but has gone mentally unstable, and Camelia's best friend, Kimmie. Camelia and Kimmie also have some issues in this story, which is rotten timing for Camelia, as she's dealing with horrible nightmares, crazy visions that make her black out, and worry over her aunt. I really loved all the drama, and was able to really connect with Camelia through all of it. She is an amazing character! Overall, this book is just amazing, and I can't find really any negative criticism to give at all! 5 stars!

    Spoilers below: I loved the book! Except for the ending, well it was good, but not the way I'd hoped things would turn out. I like Adam, and how he's all about having no secrets, but I seriously love Ben! He is my favorite and always will be! I hope something else happens with Camelia and Ben in the last book. I wish That Camelia would of chosen Ben! But also I think that Adam should of confessed that I wasn't him who saved her.

When I read "Jill's" letter I cried, when she was talking about how the person came in and untied her and then went to Camelia and said how he was sorry, and how she deserved someone better than him. Then when the letter said that the guy told her his name was Ben I was just like so happy it was him. But he didn't take the credit for saving Camelia! Which I was upset about. Still there's hope on the last book. I also really liked how it showed how Camelia and her aunt were more connected with their powers. Like how similar they are in so many ways. With Camelia's premonitions and her aunt Alexia's paintings. I'm glad that it's out there in her family that they now know about her premonitions.

    Let me begin by saying I am completely pissed with this book. I read reviews before reading it, so I was completely aware that Camelia was going to end up with Adam in the end. But boy oh boy did I not read anything about how it was actually Ben who saved her life and Adam is just taking credit. As soon as I read that the 'boy-hero' was wearing gloves I was instantly pissed. Because we all know that that would mean it was Ben who saved the day. He needs to get over himself and just be with Camel Let me begin by saying I am completely pissed with this book.

He needs to get over himself and just be with Camelia and learn to work their shit out together. And I am completely done with Adam. I could stand him for basically the whole book because he's nice and good to her but honestly? Its really annoying that he didn't tell Camelia that Ben saved her. Like she's going to find out. What then? I was also annoyed with how long it seemed for everything to happen in this book. This was by far my least favorite of the series. TEAM BEN.

    I can't believe Laurie has let us hanging like this! The next freaking book comes out until December! Seriously, writers shouldn't publish anything until they have the whole thing done! They love to make us suffer. I know I'm just blabbering but Deadly Little Lessons is too far away! I want Ben back! I mean Adam might be sweet and everything but I find it hard to trust him fully after the stunt he pulled in the second book! Plus, it's pretty obvious Ben and Camelia are meant to be together!

He has a chameleon tattoo on his thigh for God's sake (Oddly enough, I find that extremely sexy haha)! The thing is that I'm angry. I devoured the whole series in a day. The books are definitely easy to read but the plots of each are pretty good.. Laurie always manages to take you by surprise even when you think you have everything solved. If you are giving a second thoughts to the series, don't! You won't regret it.

    These books are becoming so repetitive. I've really been reading them only to keep up with the relationship (or lack of) between Ben and Camelia which is, sadly, is almost nonexistent until the end. And then BOOM! huge (relationship) cliffhanger in the end. Sometimes i hate dramatic irony. In this case, it's the only thing keeping me reading the next book. i bet you my right hand someone has a crazy stalker in the last installment of this series.

Switching up who has a psycho following them in each book does not make it more interesting if the details are barely changed each time. These books used to leave me with chills, regretting reading them so late at night, and debating to sleep with the light on. They aren't the same anymore. Actual Rating is 3.5 stars.

    Sometimes an author needs to know when to end a series. This is the case with the Touch series. "Deadly Little Voices" is just a revised version of the previous three books. Girl likes boy, boy is distant, new boy shows up, old boy talks to new girl, girl#1 is having issues and is danger,and boy #1 disappears. Blah, Blah, Blah..... "DLV," is depressing and has too few moments of lighthearted humor. Cammie whines incessantly throughout the book and quite frankly, I am just tired and bored with the Sometimes an author needs to know when to end a series. This is the case with the Touch series.

There is one book left, "Deadly Little Lesson," so I will probably buy and read it to complete the series. However, I feel like this series should have ended at book 3.

    I guess this is really more like 2 1/2 stars. I've read the whole series and I'm glad there's only one more book. I'm tempted to skip it...but stopping a series isn't something I usually do. The thing is, this main character...she's really irritating. Situations like: I should tell, I won't tell, I should tell, I won't tell, will you tell?, I won't tell, I should've told, I wish I'd told, tell now, no I won't...on and on and on and on in every single book!

And it's not just her, most of the characters are the same way, the indecisive stupidity of them is ridiculous. I'm going to finish the last one. And I have a feeling I'll be relieved that it is actually, the last one.

    "Silencing your artistic impulses only makes the voices louder. This sickness always finds it's way in...even if it has to invade your dreams." Wow, a surprising turn in this series. Things are not always as they seem and for the firs time, I was completely absorbed in this book. Each turn was something new and I was left guessing up until the last few chapters. I thought I knew, I changed my theory. I know a lot of reviews are saying this is a formulaic series, but I find something new in every "Silencing your artistic impulses only makes the voices louder.
