Book #1 Read in 2013
The Diviners by Libba Bray
This is the first book in a new young adult fantasy series. Evie has a talent--she can hold an object and tell secrets about the person who owns that object. This "talent" can lead her into trouble and she ends up sent to her uncle in New York City after using her power at a party and causing problems. Her uncle is working with the police to try to find a killer who is murdering people with a supernatural bent. Evie begins to assist him with solving the case. She also realizes that there are more people with unique talents like she has and she doesn't know if this is a good thing or a bad thing.
I enjoyed this book. I liked Evie, even though at times she was a bit selfish. Her friends, especially Jericho and Sam, were interesting. This book had decent action to it and had a good mystery plot line. I am curious to see what the next book in the series covers.
