Outview - Brandt Legg
Outview is the first novel in the Inner Movement series. This book is free for the kindle. If you want a total overdose of new-age mumbo jumbo, with a side of teenage angst, this is your book! Nate is just 16 years old. Nate's father died four years ago, and two years ago his brother Dustin was committed to a mental institution. Nate thinks he's going insane. He's having visions he calls outviews. He seems to be seeing his own death, but in past lives. Once Nate understands that he's just awakening to his true powers, his mission is to free his brother. But Nate and his friends have to stay alive before they can rescue anyone. The government is hunting Nate because he knows something they're willing to kill for. This story is engaging, it's suspenseful, and it's totally unbelievable. I'm a fiction junkie, but I can't suspend my disbelief long enough to take this book seriously. And then the ending is a total cliff hanger to make you read the second book. Not me. If you're into astral projection, past lives, spirit guides, reincarnation, and karma you'll probably love this book. It's got all those and more. It also has a hero who's 16, a smart ass, and totally conflicted when it comes to girls. If you can deal with that, then I recommend this book.
