The Cure by JG Faherty [4.5 stars]

From the Description:

She was born with the power to cure. Now she’s developed the power to kill.

Leah DeGarmo has the power to cure with just a touch. But with her gift comes a dark side: Whatever she takes in she has to pass on, or suffer it herself. Now a sadistic criminal has discovered what she can do and he’ll stop at nothing to control her. He makes a mistake, though, when he kills the man she loves, triggering a rage inside her that releases a new power she didn’t know she had: the ability to kill. Transformed into a demon of retribution, Leah resurrects her lover and embarks on a mission to destroy her enemies. The only question is, does she control her power or does it control her?

I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. This is in no way reflected in my opinion of this novel.

What would you chose to do if you had the power to heal? Leah DeGarmo choses to help animals and their owners. As a pet owner/lover I totally get that. It also makes parts of this story hard to read through the tears. Leah is a believable and sympathetic main character. I found myself rooting for her and John to get away from the evil men chasing them. And cheering when she got her revenge. JG Faherty is a master of pulse pounding action. The Cure grabbed me from the first sentence and wouldn't let go, I had to know what was going to happen next. The storyline is filled with more twists and turns than a mountain road and you won't see the end coming. An exciting 4.5 star read.
