I'm not quite done yet, but let's see...
This girl moves with her dad to this new tiny town. She meets a boy who seems to be intrigued by her immediately. He lives with his siblings, is insanely rich, and is a little mysterious with a reputation to never stick with one girl.
Then when we learn more about him and his powers, we learn that Remy lets him feel again, which is something that he craves--dangerously so--and that him and hi...more
I did it too at the beginning.
Just so you know, except a love-story it has nothing in common with Twilight.
Remy is a Healer. She heals the wounds of the people, or rather absorbs them until the wounds appear on her own body.
Her mother is afraid of Remy's skill and she ignores it while Remy just tries to hide it as good as she can.
It is not that easy because the lover of Remy's mother, Dean, is a violent douchebag. He is beating Remy and...more
But many compare touched with twilight and I have to agree there's similarities but it's so different at the same time
The biggest difference it that Remy is a warrior, not damsel in distress! she can take care of herself, I loved Remy and I really wish I have half her strength
Don't get me wrong I'm twilight fan and I see nothing wrong in being damsel in distress every once...more
Yeah. That's what this is. No doubt about it.
This was.. An interesting, pathetic attempt at copying Twilight. First, the characters:
Remy:First thing I thought of when I heard this name: Renesme. Don't you think so? Remy. Renesme. MMm-hmm. That's what I thought. Next, Jackson tries to make her such a "strong" character. She's always like I'm SO brave. No. You're not. Trust me, she is weak. Heck, she's weaker than Bella. Ugh. She makes me sick. I mean, she's getting A
Color me awesome!!! Touched completely blew me away and totally exceeded my expectations!!
Remy comes from an abused home, taken away from her father by her mother when she was born she has lived with her mother and step-father and endured his abuse alongside her mother for many years. But Remy is no normal girl, for she has the ability to heal others and herself, the catch, any injury she heals she absorbs herself and then must use her own energy to heal it. If thats not en...more
When I saw the early summary for this book, the first thing that came to mind was that the girl had the same ability as the protagonist in Touch of Power, a book I had just finished recently back then. Plus the titles are rather similar too. But then I came across this interview and thought it why not? It sounds interesting.
Then the early reviews came in and mentioned the similarities to Twilight but I still read this because I was curious. For the early part of the book it was really goo...more
I think the problem might be that I have read some really great books lately, with either intense romance, original story lines or just great plots and this book, sadly had neither.
To be totally honest it all felt like I had read it before or like maybe the author had found a step by step formula to writing Young Adult Paranormal and wasn't stra...more
Remy goes to live with her dad after her abusive stepfather goes too far, and hospitalizes her, which usually, wouldn't be a big deal for her, because she has this uncanny ability to heal people and herself, with just a tou...more

The best part about this book is the plot. I loved that it started off hard and raw, leading the reader down a painful road. Then it let up, allowing the reader to stand up, brush off our shoulder, and step into a whole new world. The author did an amazing job in creating a great back round history. I love a...more
Remy O’Malley heals people with touch—but every injury she cures becomes her own. Living in a household with an abusive stepfather, she has healed untold numbers of broken bones, burns,and bruises. And then one night her stepfather goes too far....more

Remy is just wow. There are no words for the struggles she has gone through in this book. You want to reach through the pages and just hold her, she is strong, and she is a survivor. She has the power to heal others and their injuries become her own. When things go to far and she gets taken to her dads home, she is happy but scared. She finally feels safe, add in Asher and that safety is threatened but only a l...more
"Touched - Der Preis der Unsterblichkeit" handelt von Remy, einem Mädchen, das unter widrigsten Umständen großgeworden ist. Ihr Leben ist geprägt von Gewalt - denn ihr Stiefvater Dean misshandelt nicht nur ihre Mutter, sondern auch sie. Allerdings hat Remy eine Gabe: sie ist nämlich eine Heilerin.
Dadurch ist sie in dem Glauben großgeworden, dass sie die Menschen in ihrem Umfeld beschützen muss und dass Tränen nicht angemessen sind. Dies ändert sich als ihr Vater sie zu sich nach Blackwell...more

Goodness. First of all the story was slow and the plot painful to consider when I felt Twilight beat throughout the pages.
I mean. I was/is a Twilight fan but this was just too much like it I felt I was going to puke.
If just to mention some scenes that were not rather obvious but which stuck with me after finishing Twilight.
Let's see. The scene where he 'steals' Remy from her friends' table, buys her a ton o...more

Die gebundene Ausgabe ist bereits am 21.Februar 2012 erschienen.
419 Seiten umfasst die Taschenbuchversion.
Zusammen mit ihrer Mutter lebt Remy bei ihrem brutalen Stiefvater.
Bereits als Kind bemerkt sie, dass sie anders ist – die kann Verletzungen heilen.
Diese nimmt sie dann jedoch selbst auf und durchleidet den gleichen Schmerz, wie zuvor vom ihr geheilten Person.
Das alles kostet ihr ziemlich viel Kraft und lau...more
While reading this, I couldn't help but compare it to "Twilight." There are many, many elements that are the same - girl moves to new town and finds gorgeous, wealthy boy who turns out to be an immortal paranormal type. They can't touch without serious concentration. He is dangerous to her kind.
So, yeah - I see "Twilight" in "Touched."
BUT there are big deviations. The first - Remy has paranormal power of her own. She also has a spine and spunk, something Bella had...more
Warning: The main character is repeatedly abused by her stepfather, so if you are sensitive to stories with abuse this may not be for you.
This story is about a girl, with the ability to heal. Her mother and her...more

This book is not just inspired by, it's an actual read-alike. You can see Twilight's bones straight through the thin skin of Touched: a young woman who goes to live with her father, a hot, rich, supernatural love interest who's dangerous to the girl and whose good intentions are challenged by the girl, a trumped up reason touching is dangerous, a sister who hates the girl, a brawny brother who maybe hates her maybe likes her, a dangerous pair of friends who ar...more
Touched scored higher with me than its nearly carbon-copied counterpart only because Remy is leaps and bounds more acceptable than Bella Swan. Although all that fire and steel in her backbone is moot point when it's still up to lover boy to come riding to the rescue, catch her when she trips (why do all YA heroines have to trip over EVERYTHING?), and tell her what's best for her because she couldn't possibly know that her...more
Remy O’Malley has a special gift. The seventeen year old can heal people’s injuries with her magical touch. But even though she has this uncanny ability, her own life is broken and flawed from years of abuse at the hands of her stepfather, who beats Remy’s mother on a regular basis. After one particular beating aimed at Remy, the teen’s father comes to her reluctant rescue, forcing her to live with him and his new family. With the seed of hope in...more
Yeah. Like I said, nothing new here in trope-ville.
Yet....I read it in one gulp. Remy's been protecting her mother from abuse for a long time. She does this by healing her with a touch. Only, when Remy "heals" another person, she takes that injury...more
