YA Paranormal Review – Touched

Touched by Corrine Jackson

Review by Kelsey O.


Remy O’Malley’s life isn’t easy. Her mother is married to an abusive man who only wants the child support check that her father sends every month. On top of that she has a mysterious power to heal people with touch. The side-effect to that is for every injury she cures it becomes hers. She has healed her mother over and over again and has even had to endure pain without healing to hide her abilities. After the worst beating of her life, Remy is sent to live with her estranged father and meets a boy just as strange as her, Asher Blackwell, only to find out that they are enemies. Asher is a Protector and immortal and his kind hunt down her kind.


I was instantly grabbed from page one. Right away I felt for Remy and knew that her journey was going to be tough. Being abused and being different without knowing why leads to some very deep scarring. This was about Remy’s turn to be healed. Even though I felt that Asher was not a original described character, I still enjoyed his story. He compliments Remy well and their growing attraction leads to some tense moments.


The intertwining of fantasy and reality was effortlessly done. The story managed to deal with real issues but added the fantasy element that makes for intriguing reading. All the characters interact well together and support the main characters. Perfect read for the lovers of YA paranormal.
