Description

The media has a nickname for Marnie Baranuik, though she'd rather they didn't; they call her the Great White Shark, a rare dual-talented forensic psychic. Twice-Touched by the Blue Sense - which gives her the ability to feel the emotions of others, and read impressions left behind on objects - Marnie also has a doctorate in preternatural biology and a working knowledge of the dark arts. She is considered without peer in the psychic community.

Then her first big FBI case ended with a bullet in one shoulder and a chip on the other, a queasy heart and a serial killer in the wind, leaving her a public flop and a private wreck. When the FBI's preternatural crimes unit tracks her down at a remote mountain lodge for her insight on a local case, her quiet retirement is promptly besieged by a stab-happy starlet, a rampaging ghoul, and a vampire-hunting jackass in tight Wranglers. Marnie figures the only real mystery is which one will kill her first.

Too mean to die young, backed up by friends in cold places, and running with a mouth as demure as a cannon's blast, Marnie Baranuik is about to discover that there's no such thing as quitting time when you're Touched.

Hilarious, Sexy, Snarky, and Absolutely Unique!

What did you love best about Touched? I absolutely LOVE the snark, humor, and action. But mostly it's so nice to actually have a book with a real story line, plot, character development, it's non stop entertainment. Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How? never ending action or witty banter. What does Amy McFadden bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book? I read this book and was delighted when they added it to audible, although I was nervous ( I am the ultimate narrator snob) Amy was a perfect choice, she is amazing at holding character, accents, and different voices without sounding like an idiot. I would listen to her again in a heartbeat If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be? So amazeballs we had to make it into a Movie!!! well, okay, so I"ll never make a career in marketing. But I would watch this movie, for realsies. Any additional comments? if you like books like the Kate Daniels series, Charlie Davidson, Iron druid, or Mercy Thompson this book is absolutely for you!

Great Story, if a Gross One

I really enjoyed this book. The main character is a hoot, if foul mouthed. She's painfully human, meaning she's not perfect. However, there are times when she says and does things that are ingenious. There are parts that made me laugh out loud and others that made me cringe. There is a LOT of grossness in here, given what the story is about, so it's not unexpected. I highly recommend this book. As for the narration, Amy McFadden is a delightful discovery! She brings Marnie and her world to vivid life. I am eager to read and listen to the next book!

False advertising

I am not vampire fan - the only good vampire is a dead vampire. The romanticizing of vampires is exasperating. The description did not mention vampires, If it had I would not have purchased it. The wining and gnashing of teeth further detracted from any enjoyment.

Amazingly well read and we'll written

The story is totally original, quite a feat in the paranormal field. The narrator is incredible. The combination of excellent urban fantasy plus excellent narration is a rare listening gem. Don't miss this one.

Something pleasantly different

This is not just another cut and paste paranormal book and is fast paced enough to keep you wanting more. The story line is well defined and easy to follow with some surprising twists and unexpected moments. Just as you think you know what’s going to happen next,your pleasantly surprised. I really enjoyed the dynamics of the main love interests and the whole story was well written.#magicalsystems,#vampires,#urbanfantasy,#provocative,#magical,#tagsgiving,#sweepstakes

So Bad!

The main protagonist is boring and whiny, I had to give up by chapter 17.

Disappointing.

In all honesty the dialogues are icredebly 'witty' as one commenter says, but the story overall is badly overshadowed by the inadequate heroine. I could have loved this book if someone had plucked out Marty and exchanged her with someone else. I kept trying to find something to like about her and it just wasn't happening. She is moody, unreasonable, and woefully egotistical in my opinion. the author kept trying to portrait her as some 'darling can do no wrong' type, but the result is an annoying Mary sue know it all trying inafectually to stomp her desire for Mark the FBI agent but is still bitter that her vampire (oh excuse me) revenant 'partner' won't take her for a romp in the sheet. At this point I don't think even she know what she want. Made it almost halfway trough chapter 33 before giving up. Also the mystery is a little interesting but not so much as to be compared to Sherlock and Moriarty's incredible rivalry, I assume that is where the author was going with the sherlock and Marty names. Again the dialogues are quite injoable, as the story is quite lengthy (which I like in a book) you get a lot of that. I expecially like Harry and his infinite and creative pet names. but not enough for me to endure the protagonist.

why

All of the characters in this book are constantly and unbelievably horny, like they can't go five minutes without thinking or talking about how much they want to bone the main character and how she wants to bone everyone else. There's also a minor subplot about vampires and magic or something.

bad

I can't imagine being stupid enough to give this more than one star. Just a horrible story.
