The more I read the more sophisticated my taste in books becomes. Personally it’s not the story, or the plot, but what really propels a book from average to great is the author’s voice. Spice that with witty, charming characters—I’m hooked.
Mrs. Marissa Carmel had me at hello. From the first page of iFeel, her debut novel, I was impressed with her voice and exquisite style. What Amazon allowed through the “look inside” feature wasn’t enough for me; I had to have the book.

First, I’d like to give applause to the cover of iFeel. It easily piqued my interest and it truly resembles what the book is all about. Great cover!

Unlike the other reviewers, I received my copy with little or no error almost, so I have nothing against the grammar thing.

Ifeel is a rather fast-read I think, I didn’t realize I was at the end of the book, until I felt that there’s only 5 or more pages finished this in one sitting…

So I have to say, I've never actually read or watched any of the works iFeel is compared to in the synopsis, so I'm not really sure how it compares, but I can say that it is an enjoyable read. Carmel starts off really strong, and throws the reader right into some action. The book is fairly fast paced, and I didn't feel like I was having to wade through a bunch of extra stuff just to get to the plot.

The main character Liv is nicely developed and I thought Carmel did a good job of creating a chara

I truly enjoyed this book, I want to give the author props for keeping the story upbeat and fast paced. Meaning that not one moment was I bored or uninterested with the story. Liv is a fun and free spirited character, who unfortunately thinks she's on the verge of a mental crack. Her witticisms and erratic emotional breakdowns keep the POV fun and on edge, always waiting for the next twist to come along.

Liv has spent her whole life in hiding, feeding herself with isolation and pills. She always thought that she was insane and did not like going out so much and seeing anyone.

This book is indeed a different kind of writing. I enjoyed the story very much. Extreme beings combust with contact. One that hides from all public life simply to keep from feeling every emotion from every one around her. Destined to spend her life in lock up inside her own apartment. The other one an angel sent to protect all that is good and to keep evil from harming this "feeler". Seraphs and empaths ignite and paint the town in flames in this story.

I love the paranormal genre and I especially love how Marissa has taken it in her own direction with iFeel. It's not your typical vampire romance or werewolf family. It takes paranormal in a whole new direction. Liv is an amazing character that you can't help but feel for the entire novel. It's almost eerie how much I can relate to this fictional character with supernatural powers. This novel held me captive from beginning to end and I can't wait for the next book in the series.

Review originally posted on Romancing the Dark Side:

A fun and romantic debut with a paranormal twist!

Liv Christianni is a young woman who's lived a somewhat lonely and isolated life due to her empathic abilities which she's always seen as a mental illness. When she crosses paths with a Spirit Stalker who's trying to steal her soul, Liv is rescued by the handsome Justice and learns she comes from a rare line of supernatural royalty which must be protected.

My Rating: 3.5 out of 5 Stars!

What a great start to the Vis Vires Trilogy! Marissa Carmel has created a new world filled with Spirit Stalkers, Seraphs, and the mystical Vis Vires that has you turning every page in suspense! With a new spin on the reality that we live in, Carmel has taken the ordinary and turned it into the extraordinary!

My favorite part about this novel has got to be its rich characters. From the main character, Liv, to the Seraphs, and even to the supporting characters that onl

Alivyanna Christianni is one of those people with too much emotion and too little control. As she slides between one near-breakdown to the next, fate throws a new wrench into her otherwise isolated and lonely life. As though she needs a new problem. Liv is being hunted by a spirit walker, a big-old-nasty thing that enjoys sucking souls out of people for food and fun. After a terrifyingly near-death attack, she meets her savior and protector, Justinian, or Justice. As Justice tries to get Liv to ...more

It is about an earthly woman who is about to face her destiny and meet her soul-mate. Except this soul-mate is not a human, he is a supernatural creature, a cross between an angel and a devil. He was sent to her earthly realm to protect her against foes who are hunting for her, she too is not just human, she is an emipath. A very powerful one with a purple aura and is in serious trouble.

This book is like nothing I have ever read before. It brings you to a word filled with Spirit Stalkers, Seraphs and Vis Vires. It makes you feel like when you get the chills or think you see something out of the corner of your eye it may not just be nothing.

Marissa Carmel drew me into this book from the prologue. And the bit of suspense it holds grabbed my attention. I loved the way the characters were introduced and how they developed through the story. The prologue and the first chapter were a

This is unique and intriguing paranormal romance, about a couple with a connection so heated, it “burns” the pages It is a story about love, redemption, and second chances.

Have you ever had the little hairs on the back of your neck stand up, or out of the corner of your eye you think you see something but nothings there, or you cross your arms and rub them because you had a chill and yet you’re not cold? What do you do, dismiss it? Don’t.

There are spirits around us all the time; some make us feel good others will suck the soul out of you.

Honestly, the writing is five-star. I love the suspenseful way Ms Carmel has managed to draw me in with. The prologue and the first chapter were amazing, but then it started to go downhill. The dialogue seemed forced and the plot seemed to be going on forever. I liked the ending; it was adorable, but it doesn't really suit the dark-ish theme of the book. But then again, who WOULDN'T want to be Liv when all those wonderful things are said to her? (I'm not going to reveal the name of the person sh

She meets Justice in a club when he saves her life and she discovers that she is in fact an empath which means she can read peoples emotions. Empaths are rare so Justice protects her, they also have an connection but they can't physically be together.

The story line was creative and intriguing and had me sucked in from the beginning to end. I love the way the author depicts the different supernaturals.

Vis Vires Trilogy #1

This book was addictive, I really didn’t want to put it down and read it on and off throughout a day until I finished it. Liv feels like she’s going mad, and has spent her life taking countless pills and seeing psychiatrists. Being able to feel everyone’s emotions is too much, and she has shut herself away in order to survive. When Justice catches her one day when she is overcome, her life takes a turn and will never be the same.

I really enjoyed this book. It was a fun fast paced read that kept me interested the whole way through. I thought that the chapter titles were clever, and I definitely enjoyed the authors sense of humor. I even laughed out loud a few times and I wasn't expecting that. There was only one really minor thing that I didn't like about this book and that was some of the names of her characters. Some of the male names like Justinian and Kerri sounded overly feminine when in fact they are males. That bu ...more

It's a good thing that the story is so good and that you get sucked in quickly otherwise I would have never finished this ebook. This could have been a 5 star book if it weren't for the spelling errors and ebook set up, the two combined make this book atrocious to try and read. Reading the ebook version is like reading a really long poem, every paragraph is only 3 lines long and most of them split in middle of sentences. Every word that should have a double L in it is missing the second L as wel ...more

Liv is bombarded daily with the emotions of everyone around her. She thinks she is crazy and has isolated herself from the outside world, except from her BFF Nikee. Soon, she finds out she's not crazy, but magical and that she is being hunted by an extreme evil being.
I really enjoyed this book. The characters are easy to like. There are magical beings of all kinds in this book. Some of which, I'm not sure what they are. This book will keep you turning the pages. And it ends with a great cliff ha

I enjoyed this book, but I'm giving it 4 stars because it had such a massive amount of grammatical and spelling errors sometimes it was difficult to pay attention to the story. Normally I'm not a fan of series books because I hate waiting for the next one to come out once I've finished one; but this book ended nicely enough for me not to be antsy for the next book, but on the flip side I'm not sure if I'm terribly interested in reading another one if it's going to have as many errors as this one ...more

I really enjoyed iFeel. Some parts of it were a little confusing, and I would have liked to have been able to picture what the Stalker looked like better. This being said, I gave the book five stars, because the plot was creative, and there were many times when she used her words so beautifully to describe pain that I was very impressed.

I don't know how to describe this book, the beginning made you not want to stop reading, but then after awhile, nothing really happens. I thought there could have been a bit more action with the powers they had, but the whole book was just mainly about the romance between Justinian and Liv. The end at least had some action to it =]. I definitely enjoyed reading this though. Although, this book would have been better with some more editing =P

“I want to feel you.” “You feel me every day,” he pulls my hand to his lips and kisses the inside of my palm. “No, I want to feel you my way,” I say uneasily. He stares down at me with mesmerizing eyes. They are so lustrous they even seem to glow in the darkness. He is contemplating my request.
He takes my hand from his lips and carefully moves it towards his chest; I can’t explain the fear I have from just that small gesture. The anticipation of what I will find excites me and terrifies me all at once. The last time - the only time - I felt Justice, he literally lit me on fire. As I apprehensively touch his skin, it washes over me. The tender warmth he holds inside, like I’m being wrapped in warm blankets on a cold autumn morning. “Feel what you were looking for?” he asks. “Yes,” I say, as I spread my fingers over him. The sensation is glorious. “Good,” he leans down and kisses me, his lips holding the same warmth as my insides. Without even thinking, I wrap my arms around his neck and jerk him in closer.”
