Killer Instinct by Jennifer Lynn Barnes

Seventeen-year-old Cassie Hobbes has a gift for profiling people. Her talent has landed her a spot in an elite FBI program for teens with innate crime-solving abilities, and into some harrowing situations. After barely escaping a confrontation with an unbalanced killer obsessed with her mother’s murder, Cassie hopes she and the rest of the team can stick to solving cold cases from a distance.

But when victims of a brutal new serial killer start turning up, the Naturals are pulled into an active case that strikes too close to home: the killer is a perfect copycat of Dean’s incarcerated father—a man he’d do anything to forget. Forced deeper into a murderer’s psyche than ever before, will the Naturals be able to outsmart the enigmatic killer’s brutal mind games before this copycat twists them into his web for good?

With her trademark wit, brilliant plotting, and twists that no one will see coming, Jennifer Lynn Barnes will keep readers on the edge of their seats (and looking over their shoulders) as they race through the pages of this thrilling novel.”

~Synopsis from Goodreads

So I started reading this book on Tuesday and finished it on Thursday night. It was better than the first and I was not expecting that. Usually the second book in a series isn’t so great. But this one had me on the edge of my bed and made me want to stay up to finish it. I honestly wasn’t expecting to like it, but I love it!

So this book is about 5 teenagers that have natural talents that the FBI wants to use including profiling, lie detecting, emotions, and numbers. In this book they have a case where this is a serial killer that is copying a well known serial killer that had been caught. The Naturals got involved even though they weren’t supposed to.

The plot twist at the end was the best thing ever and it had me so confused and scared at the same time. Also, the author does a really good job at keeping the romance realistic and not the most important thing in the book. The most important thing is Cassie the main character and the case they’re working on.

I give this book 5 out of 5 stars! I would recommend it to middle school age because it’s not mature, but it isn’t for little kids. It’s so good and anyone can read it!

Until Next Time!
