After succumbing to the sudden and terrifying urge to rip people’s eyes out of their sockets, 16-year-old Lysandra Blake finds herself tied down in a psych ward, convinced she’s crazy. The doctors have no answers, and Lys is ready to give up when the mysterious Jeremiah Mason appears, telling Lys that she’s not insane—she’s addicted to a rare and deadly drug that she has no recollection of using. Mr. Mason offers to take her to his facility where he can treat her. Desperate yet suspicious, Lys agrees to go with Mr. Mason to his facility where she meets with a fellow addict, the tall and handsome Kamau. Together they discover that Mr. Mason may not have told them the truth about their condition—they’re thrown headfirst into a world of daunting powers that are not only unbelievable, they are dangerous.
Very interesting story that had me intrigued throughout. The author does a great job of planting seeds of interest that kept me reading to find answers. At first, the whole "ripping out eyes" thing had me worried as to how the rest of the story would go, but luckily that wasn't the main focus of the story. I don't want to give anything away, because the why and how of the "Need" doesn't get revealed until later, but what I did find were characters and situations that were enjoyable and the twists and tangles in the book kept me thinking where is this story going to go next? Who can Lys trust? There is a bit of language, but nothing that was offensive to me.
