A bordering psychopath must face the monster inside him before it tears him apart.
Born with the power to control minds, hypnotize others, and read thoughts, Ren Lewis is certain of one thing: God made a mistake. No one should be born with so much power. A monster awoke in him the same year he received his gifts. At 10 years old. A prepubescent boy with the ability to control others might merely abuse his powers, but Ren allowed it to corrupt him. And since he can have and do anything he wants, Ren should be happy. However, his journey teaches him that harboring so much power doesn't bring happiness; it steals it. Once this realization sets in, Ren makes up his mind to do the one thing that can bring his tortured soul some peace. He must kill the monster.

this series has a great amount of character development. The main character Ren begins his story at an early age and alludes to other stories in this authors repertoire. many of us have followed him through the other stories. We were all dying to hear where he came from, why he did what he did, and why he is who he is. And now we know. We see the evolutionary development of a character who is the most natural and Human of all the characters I've ever read. He is irritated, he doesn't care about things but yet he still puts his life on the line everyday to help the world as a whole. He doesn't care for people but will save Humanity. I, personally, absolutely adore his utter snark throughout every scene he has ever been it.
this man is an British a**, and it's brilliantly perfect. delightfully sarcastic with a twist of arrogance that by about half way through the 2nd book you'll be thinking about what ren would be saying every time someone irritates you. I love the way his mind works lol. I read the Lucidite series 1st and it fills out some of the details that are hinted at in the 1st book as a bit of it runs along the same time frame. there is lots of cussing, some violence, and some sexual content. I highly recommend this book for anyone who doesn't offend easily and is looking for something blunt with a bit of unusual humor.
Librarian with chronic migraines which cuts into reading a LOT so I listen and it is awesome for me keeps me in the blogging/reviewing game.
Ren Lewis likes his life the way he likes it, no changes, no surprises. But in this book he gets both in a big way. In this world of dangers for dream travelers, this is really a big distraction for Ren to get used to and it just gets worse from there.
If you read or listened to the first Ren Book: Ren Man Behind the Monster you will love this one. Narrator Tim Campbell is back with the audio version. If you are new to the series, well I don't often say this, but this is one series you really should listen too. Tim Campbell makes the most awesome Ren Lewis, think Stewie from Family Guy all grown up. Snarky, narcissistic, funny, genius and awesome.
Wow the voice actor for Ren was exactly how I imagined him to sound. He was stolen right out of my head! I love being able 2 listen to the three stories all consecutively.
Anyone familiar with Sarah Noffke's book universe knows who Ren is. He's mischievous, powerful, and kind of an a**. But man, what a character! He's the sort of guy you love to hate. Charming and ultimately good, but also selfish and flawed. Truly one of the better character pieces out there.
Read this series if you're tired of the Disney storybook endings and bland archetypes. This one is better than that.
I'm just a girl who loves stories!
Ren of course!
He's so real ... sarcastic, honest, dark and yet he has softer moments
He was fabulous!
I wasn't sure how I'd feel about him since I got to learn about Ren in The Lucidites and Reverian series read by Elizabeth Klett but Tim Cambell really brought REN to life
I smiled a lot ... I just love Ren and Sarah writes him in a way that is so real ... you can't help but fall for him and all his rough edges
An immature attempt at writing with so many mistakes and contradictions that I wonder if it was ever actually edited. DON'T get this for your teenage daughters. Don't read it yourself!!! Worse than the bad writing, is the promotion of the main character who is a serial rapist. Yes - if you use your 'mind powers' to make women sleep with you... that is rape. I worry that so many of the previous reviews are dismissive or minimize the main characters use and abuse of all around him. When did we become so accepting of this behavior? A TRULY TRASH NOVEL!
