      ~2.5 stars~The blurb on this book sounded quite intriguing so I decided I would give it a try. Here is my breakdown:The pros:* It was generously offered as a freebie* I loved the idea of a mind/thought reading heroine - this is something that hasn’t been overdone in the fantasy/paranormal genre* the cover looks goodThe cons:* This book had a very vanilla/juvenile feel to it - the characters felt much younger than they were supposed to be - definitely YA (no sex, etc)* I never, at any point car [...]

      I was given this book in exchange for an honest review.First, I really, thoroughly enjoyed the book. The characters felt very authentic and real. Heroes, by nature, are different than everyone else and are marked as such. Mac is no different in that aspect. She is different, however, in the fact that her difference doesn’t create a “broken” character. She is a fully functional adult who is educated and independent. I love this about her.Mac’s love interest was also refreshing. Owen is no [...]

      I don't know where to start. I loved the whole concept. I am not kidding when I say that the author had me at hello. Seriously, from the first page I was captivated. I had to keep reading "just 1 more page" and before I knew it there were no more. You can't ask for more than that!!

    4. Heaven is a bookstore says:

      Stephanie Erickson kept me in the book hangover with The Unseen. Mac has always been odd because when she was a little girl she realized she could read others thoughts. A doctor provided her with iLs. Mac wears this device on her ears. It plays music and drowns out the thoughts of others allowing her to concentrate. Ever since she was little, she has always wondered why she has this ability and if she is as alone as she feels. One day she sees a man watching her and from there, things change. Sh [...]

    5. Stefania says:

      Including in less than 300 pages three of the things I hate the most in books? Mission accomplished!1) I'm a Barbie girlDon't let the synopsis fool you, there's no dynamic, determined nor admirable heroine. Mac is the kind of girl who's convinced of being better then other people just because she's got a gift and then immediately pouts when she discovers others like her. The annoying "prodigy" who can do everything and anything and without equals.The intolerable, always whining and shouting girl [...]

    6. Hanna says:

      I'm not sure how to rate this book. On the hand, I really liked the idea of having mind readers around and Mac's story how she made it through life so far was extremely interesting and I liked the role music played. On the other hand, some things really bothered me.Mac has made it through life without ever encountering other mind readers or being found by them (view spoiler)[the evil ones, at least (hide spoiler)] or finding out by accident how to do any of the cool things mind readers can do. I [...]

    7. Simone says:

      I received a free copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review.Mackenzie lived in her own world filled with music; you could say it helps keep her sane. Mac can hear other people's thoughts and sometimes it can be overwhelming, so she uses an iLs, an Integrated Listening System to block out the voices and help her focus at hand. Because this was her savior, she majored in music therapy. A chance meeting with a mysterious and extremely handsome man, whose thoughts she cannot hear, sparks h [...]

      2 starsWell, I didn't DNF, So I will bump this up to 2 stars. The plot was predictable, especially the parts that were meant to be surprising. The heroine is 25, and I'm not sure how old the hero was, but they acted like they were 12 year olds. The first half of the book, for lack of a better word, was preachy. We learned all about a learning disability, and how it's treated, when we all know she doesn't even have that disability. We learn all about musical therapy, and how passionate she is abo [...]

    9. Kayce Dowdy says:

      This book reads like a chaste version of Dark Light. I found Mackenzie unlikeable and the other characters flat and undeveloped. The author makes a lot of "girls are like/boys are like" statements, which strike me as sexist and unappealing. And just like Dark Light there's a whole lot of mooning and not much about main character's ability. Unfortunately, Unseen has no hilariously over-the-top sex scenes to make it fun. My biggest gripe is how Mac decided to drop her dream of becoming a music the [...]

    10. Jenna says:

      I loved the cover and I thought this would be a great read, but I was wrong.Mackenzie is a mind reader she can hear everyone’s thoughts but she can’t turn them off and it makes living very difficult.Now the unseen have found her and want to her to join the group but why don’t the answer all her questions? Mackenzie has finished college to I’m thinking she’s about 21 but her mind is very naive and frankly dumb. The love building was instant.Mackenzie could have trained herself or event [...]

    11. Cissa says:

      Mind reading is tricky to handle in fiction- either the the mind-reader Knows All, or is a basket case because of too much input.Erickson handled this really well. She dealt with what it would actually mean to read minds, and how difficult that would be until and unless one develops ways to control it.And if there were mind readers, there would definitely be various schools of them, mostly at odds.I think this was more novella length than novel length, but it was a fast, suspenseful and engaging [...]

    12. Megan says:

      Ok best book out of my week of reading. (Sorry that isn't much of a compliment, but its mean't like one)I was abit dubious about this book. She was too poor me, and then suddenly super duper. I was getting a bit sick of it. However I am curious about her story. It did hook me on the first book, as much as I hate cliff hangers, I do like this one. It isn't a massive cliffhanger but this book is cool.I like the fact she is gifted, I just wish she wasn't so gifted. That could be toned down a little [...]

    13. The Literary Connoisseur says:

      Wow. This bookwow. I couldn't stop thinking about it all day, and now that I've actually finished it, I feel as if I have to reread it immediately just to keep it fresh in my brain longer. It hooked me from the very beginning, and now I am hopelessly lost without it. Stephanie, I need book two.

    15. Chaos; says:

      Just because I was debating whether I should give this book 1 or 2 stars I'll say that my actual rate would be 1.5 stars. First of all, I just hate giving books less than two stars but I also didn't feel like it deserved two stars at all.My first opinion about this book was that it's short and therefore would be easy to read. It really is unless you're kind of picky on the whole story and everything like me and in that case you might find it hard to finish it (just like I did). Don't get me wron [...]

    16. Grace says:

      This book was such a quick read! Not just due to the length, but it was the perfect amount of fluff and serious-plot (Say, what is the opposite of fluff? Nonfluff? Someone needs to invent a word for it), which was just what I was looking to read next. There isn't anything profound about Erickson's writing. It's pretty good. The reason I gave it 4 stars was because, although I really enjoyed it, there were a lot of little issues I had that took away from my experience. But first, let me list the [...]

      0.5⭐️ what the hell did I just read. Let me paint this picture.I have a best friend, the only friend I’ve known for all my life. She doesn’t know I have a 6th toe. I keep it from her, but who cares. She’s the best friend in the whole wide world. On day, this guy saves my life. Then he brings a friend, the friend is so hot. I fall in love after we exchanged a total of 50 words in 3 days. He knows about my 6th toe, and he said I can get it fixed but I have to leave my things behind. My b [...]

    18. Pam says:

      Great read.I like the characters in this book. They are relatable and you seem to see clearly through the eyes of the characters. The plot and story line moves at a good pace and an great ending and lead into book two.

    19. Kit Vogler says:

      fantastic narration for a more than great story. i would tell you about what made me ugly cry, what made me laugh, and the parts that made me smile and swoon, but that would just being giving it all away. :)

    20. Megan says:

      So many mixed feelings.

    21. Gloria says:

      So this book was definitely something. Honestly, I'm not sure of what to say. This book seemed intriguing at first, but it went down a cliché path very fast. The plot twists were very predictable and the foreshadowing was not so much as foreshadowing - it felt more like someone putting a sign right in front of my face saying THIS IS WHAT WILL HAPPEN NEXT.Not to mention the characters. Mac has been logical and goal driven from the start of the book, but when it came to making important decisions [...]

    22. Sam says:

      I actually have the The Unseen Trilogy edition, but I'm reviewing them as separates.I have some mixed feelings about this one. On the one hand, it's an intriguing premise that's handled fairly well. The proofreading/editing is impeccable—I didn't spot a single error, which is rare—and I love the cover. The writing is good, and readable, and the story kept me gripped sufficiently that I whipped through it in a few days. On the other hand, I have some gripes.(view spoiler)[First gripe: althoug [...]

      it was amazing eazy reading and the last few chapters were amazing can't wait to start next one

    24. Cindy says:

      Book Review: Unseen7%- A music student that also reads mindsBff Maddie is humorous and keeps Mackenzie's style/appearance in check. 10%- flashbacks and conversations were easily distinguished. 40%- through good conversations, humor and exaggeration and smart lipped chats, there's words of wisdoms, life lessons. Not sure if it's a goal of the author but maybe an unintentional tip here and there through a maybe relatable glitch in life. 45%- ok, I feel like I just got gipped/robbed of something or [...]

      Mackenzie “Mac” Day must choose between a career in music therapy and finding out a secret about herself she’s wanted to know all her life. She discovered music when she was five and, ever since, it has helped her cope with the inundation of voices in her head. She doesn’t have Sensory Processing Disorder like she was diagnosed with at such a young age, but the power to read minds, or at least to be overwhelmed by everyone else’s thoughts. That is, until she meets members from the Unse [...]

    26. Tiffany Smith says:

      Mackenzie is like none other--she can read minds. But great power never comes without a price and she struggles to silence the voices inside her head. She knows about everybody's intentions; their secret inner turmoils of life--until she meets someone whom she can't read. After this encounter, she quickly is thrown headfirst into the life of the Unseen, a secret organization that she could have never dreamed existed. They're all like her and for once in her life, she no longer has to be an outca [...]

    27. Stephanie says:

      Mackenzie Day finally feels like she has her life in order when she graduates with a degree in music therapy. Music has saved Mac's life. Mackenzie's parents both died when she was young and her aunt, who saw Mackenzie as a burden, raised her. On top of that, Mac has always been different, she is able to read other's thoughts. This talent became too overwhelming for her when she started kindergarten and Mac was given an Integrated Listening Systems to help her tune out everyone else's thoughts, [...]

    28. Jaide says:

      Stephanie Erickson's book one, Unseen, of The Unseen Trilogy, is one I picked up for free, but started reading quickly because it piqued my interest. The book begins with Mackenzie, a lonely, orphaned young woman in the process of completing her thesis in music therapy, who is looking forward to launching her career in her chosen field. Music has helped her to shut out the voices of those around her, especially with the use of an iLs device (integrated learning system), which she has used since [...]

      I read some other books by this author, which I liked. But this book wasn't really for me. There some things that didn't go down well with meLike for example(This isn't really a spoiler cos it happens like in the 3 chapter, but still, don't read this if you haven't read the book just in case).So like, Mackenzie goes on a date with this guy that tries to rape her and she acts like nothing happneed? i mean, okay, it didn't actually get physical but when she goes home the only thing she does is thi [...]
