4 out of 5 stars
Empath is the story of Jade. A college student with the ability to feel the emotions of others. Jade's ability is much more than just knowing what others feel she is actually able to feel their emotions. This causes her a great deal of distress in social situations - particularly in a college classroom. As Jade learns to deal with her ability she finds herself in a relationship with two very different men. One an easy-going college student, and the other a mysterious TA. In the midst of all this Jade is stalked by a madman with an ability of his own.
Empath is well set up story with an interesting twist to abilities. Each character's ability is both their greatest strength and their biggest weakness. The characters are likeable and the story enjoyable.
At times the story seemed to drag a bit for me with some unnecessary scenes. However, overall I found Empath to be an enjoyable read.
