Imagine picking up on all the emotions of those around you with no filter. Lust, fear, hate, love, confusion, or fear. Jade was born with the ability of empathy. After a traumatic experience as a young child in a classroom, Jade was kept at home and secluded from the general population. Now an adult, Jade has moved out and is attending college. Overwhelmed in her first college class with the collage of emotions Jade meets the campy and energetic Cam. As Cam and Jade become friends-sort-of-dating-friends, Jade is introduced to a relatively normal life. Along the way she meets the attractive young professor Jake and is wrapped in a mini love triangle while she dissects her feelings. Surprisingly, others may have abilities akin to her own.

While Jade is sorting through her love life and trying to overcome the burden of her abilities to live a different life, she has sparked the interest of a damaged mad man. Ethan is a disturbing serial killer who has serious mommy issues and a special hatred for women. There is a race of life and death as Ethan steadily closes in on Jade.

The author’s style of writing is easy to follow and the characters a typical bunch you would find in any college  or young adult novel. The author doesn’t include any cursing, sexy times, or otherwise more “adult” themes in this book, so I would say it’s more aimed at a younger adult audience. Empath is a simple and easy read with no hardcore elements or huge depth of plots to muggle your way through. If you want a casual young adult novel with a touch of supernatural, you have your afternoon read here.
