Add to Goodreads

Young Adult, Paranormal, Romance

Jasmin is a 17-year-old shape shifter whose whole world has been turned upside down over the last six months. Her pack has been scattered, she's nearly died more times than she can count, and the boy she cares about more than anyone else in the entire world is in a vampire-caused coma that has every sign of being terminal. Geoffrey has spent untold decades, or possibly even centuries, as a slave to others of his kind, vampires who were stronger and more ruthless than him. Escaping New York cost Geoffrey everything and the holes inside of his memory mean that he doesn't even really understand what it is he lost in his efforts to get away from his former master Imastious. Vampires and shape shifters are natural enemies, but these two are going to have to find a way to work together. There's more at stake than just their own lives, and forces neither of them fully understand are gathering to make sure that neither of them survive the week. Publisher's Note: For the first time, characters from Dean Murray's Reflections novels will be meeting up with characters from Eldon Murphy's Reflections novels. Before reading Driven, it is strongly suggested that the reader have finished the Eldon Murphy Reflections books up to this point (The Greater Darkness, and A Darkness Mirrored) as well as all of the Dean Murray Reflections titles (Broken, Torn, Splintered, Intrusion, Numb, Trapped, Forsaken, and Riven).

5 out of 5 (exceptional)

The books by Dean Murray and Eldon Murphy (same person) finally collide in Driven and it works perfectly! With having the two previous stories detailing Geoffrey's life, you get a real feel for what he is trying to do and how he's acting. From the books detailing Jasmin's participation in Alec's pack, you can completely understand how the frustration and exhaustion would be affecting Jasmin. This book answers questions that were raised by the books prior to this one but you are still left with new questions that need answers. This series is one of the most entertaining ones that I have read and the attention to detail is astounding. These books flow, are easy to read and you are never bored. There is so much action but it is perfectly balanced. You don't feel like you are thrown from one scenario to another. I loved this book and have been waiting for it very (im)patiently but it was definitely worth the wait. Highly recommended to all Dean Murray/Eldon Murphy fans and fans of the YA, Fantasy or Paranormal genres.

Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!

Dean Murray is a prolific author with more than 28 titles across multiple pen names and more than 470,000 copies of his work currently in circulation.

Dean started reading seriously in the second grade due to a competition and has spent most of the subsequent three decades lost in other people’s worlds.

Things worsened, or improved depending on your point of view, when he first started experimenting with writing while finishing up his accounting degree. These days Dean has a wonderful wife and two lovely daughters to keep him rather more grounded, but the idea of bringing others along with him as he meets interesting new people in universes nobody else has ever seen tends to drag him back to his computer on a fairly regular basis.
