Review-Collide by Christine Fonseca

The most dangerous secrets are the ones that kill.

When a surprising mental breakdown draws too much attention from a secret government group call the Order, 17-year-old Dakota discovers that her so-called boring life isn’t so boring after all. Between the lies, secrets and assassins out to kill her family, Dakota discovers there’s more to paranormal activity than ghosts and cheap mind tricks. Now she must uncover the truth before a new breed of terrorism takes everything away – including her life.

Collide caught my eye when I read the synopsis. It looked intriguing and just up my alley. I enjoyed the story very much but it took me awhile to get into it. The book started picking up around the halfway mark and by then I was glad I stuck with it.

The story follows more than one POV which I found cool. The main character, Dakota, comes to find that she has powers she never knew she had. Most of her life she's been in hiding with her family and for good reason. Someone wants her and several others like her back.

Throughout the story we meet lots of characters as well as learn a bunch of secrets. Towards the end the book really had me turning the pages and then bam it ended. I have so many questions I need answered!

Overall, I loved the concept of the book but I felt it was missing the passion that keeps me reading. If you're looking for an action packed with some mystery thrown in there, then I recommend you pick this one up!
