D. L. Richardson’s Feedback feels almost like two novels in one. First is the tragedy of teens awaiting transplants, forced to view life through a narrow focus of physical tests competing with education, and short-term survival competing with future plans. The author’s teens feel very real, variously angry and depressed, or even suicida - so much so that the introduction of a CIA agent feels almost intrusive after getting to know them. But the novel changes as the agent's story advances, and soon these youngsters are facing a threat far more immediate than gradual decline, and a danger that could destroy all they know and love (or hate).

The segues from dejected teen fiction to spy thriller are a little uncomfortable, but it’s fascinating to see these wounded characters coming back to life and hope. The reader is invited into each of their heads, to see life from their different points of view. And the story has much to tell about cruelty, rejection, and belonging to the group. Scientific aspects have a nicely lowkey superhero feel, and I’d love to read more stories starring these teens.

Disclosure: I was given an ecopy and I offer my honest review. ( )

This was a fast-paced thriller with a little bit of a supernatural element. Ethan, Florida and Jake are all teens who are recipients of organs from Dylan Black, a CIA agent who was working to deactivate some bombs when he is killed in an accident. After receiving the organs, the teens start to catch glimpses of someone and eventually start hearing a voice - Dylan's voice. Dylan's organs have cellular memory (or Feedback) that allow them access to Dylan's memory and allow him to speak to them. Now, he needs their help to finish disarming the bombs before millions of people are affected.

The book really felt to me like it was two different but related books. The first half focused on each of the teens and their individual stories - how they deal with their illness, their feelings about receiving a donor organ, their families. The book is told from the alternating viewpoints of each of the three main characters and it's done well. They each have a unique voice even though they are living with similar circumstances.

The second half of the book reads more like a James Bond thriller. There's kidnapping, fighting, escape, an evil super-villain bent on world domination, and, of course, a thrilling attempt to save the world that comes down to the last second. None of these things are original. Some of these things are cliche. There were a lot of coincidences and things that seem to go right at just the right moment. But, isn't that always the way with a spy thriller? Despite a lack of originality, it was still entertaining and the added idea of feedback kept me interested until the end.

I don't know if this is a planned series but the ending is left open for a sequel. If there is one I would be interested in seeing where the series goes. I would recommend this to fans of thrillers that are looking for something with a little bit of a twist.

Note: I received a copy of this book for free from the author through FMB Blog Tours in exchange for my review. All opinions are 100% honest and my own. ( )

I received a complimentary copy of this book as a part of a book tour in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Told in first person from the viewpoint of several of the main characters, D.L. Richardson's Feedback is a captivating thriller. While originally written for the YA crowd, I found this to be as exciting as an adult thriller with non-stop action, well developed characters and a fast paced plot. Taking place in a fictional suburban setting, Ms. Richardson's story could take place in any modern metropolitan area.

High school students Jake Ethan, Florida Bowman and Jake Inala are all on the organ recipient's list waiting to be matched up to an available organ. All three teenagers realize that in order for them to get what they desperately need, someone else will need to die. While they all hate that someone has to die, all three of them want the chance to live a normal life and get on with their dreams; Jake Ethan needs a new kidney if he ever hopes to play hockey again (he'd been his team's star player until he got sick), Florida dreams of being able to dance ballet again (her bad kidney forced her to give up practicing) and Jake Inala needs a new liver if he's ever going to achieve his dream of joining the marines. All three get the call that a matching donor organ has just become available.

An undercover agent for the CIA, Dylan Black is on a terrorist assignment at a local pharmaceutical company. Discovering the CEO of the company really is a terrorist is not as surprising as discovering the secret stash of explosives. Believing he's safe behind his cover, Dylan borrows the company Ferrari to dispose of the bombs. Being followed by the company's head of security was not a part of his plan. Neither was being burned by the CIA.

When a roadside accident leads to Dylan's death, and his organs become available, all three teenagers get a second chance at life. Dylan's ghost gets a chance to make things right with the help of his organ recipients. Ms. Richardson did an excellent job letting us get to know each of the teenagers and Dylan on his last day. While I thought it would be confusing to be told the story in all of their viewpoints, I quickly caught onto Ms. Richardson's writing style and found myself captivated by her story. It actually made the story that much more attention grabbing.

What will happen when all three teenagers begin hearing the voice of Dylan Black and what he wants them to do? Will they be able to stop the terrorist's plans? And what will become of the teens when the CIA realizes they could be valuable assets? You'll have to read Feedback to find out. I really enjoyed it and can't wait to read more of Ms. Richardson's work ( )
