The Sound of Suffering by Darin C. Brown

Title: The Sound of Suffering
Author: Darin C. Brown

Format: Ebook ARC
Hunter Miller has a secret.

He can read and manipulate the auras that surround everyone.

Having used his talent to dethrone the reigning school bully, thirteen-year old Hunter finds himself thrust into a new quest after hearing screams in the aura of a teacher.  Unable to resist this powerful siren song, he investigates—despite warnings from his family and friends. It nearly costs him everything.

Upon discovering the truth, Hunter seeks assistance in his mission to defeat his formidable adversary. As the situation escalates, the adolescent hero ultimately realizes that despite the risks, he must fight this battle alone.

In this second installment of The Master of Perceptions series, can Hunter use his extraordinary powers to rescue an innocent woman without losing himself in the process?

I liked the hero of our story. Hunter was a young boy with autism with a special gift. The story itself was a good idea, I really like the idea of focusing on main characters like Hunter. Hunter can read auras around people and I have always loved that power.

There were several things I didn’t like about this book. The writing style was a bit hard to understand sometimes. I have only taken a summer worth of karate and I don’t know all the terminology. Also, Hunter is a lot younger than I am, so maybe that was it but I couldn’t relate to the story much. Though I don’t think it is for younger audiences. I felt like the characters could have been a bit more fleshed out.

I am giving this 3/5. I think it would have been a better experience if I had read the first one, but I did like the story once I got into it.

Like Rowling's Harry Potter, young Hunter is gaining maturity and skill in each new book of the "Master of Perceptions" series. The reader shares his increasing grasp of the unique ability to see people's auras and manipulate them, and in Book 2 Hunter has a mission. He must deal with the very adult issue of domestic abuse. The perpetrator is a policeman, and his victim is a teacher at Hunter's school. He can hear her aura screaming for help, but what can a sixth grader do against an officer of the law?
Dr. Darin Brown expertly builds the tension and leads us to understand this autistic young man's unique perspective. Imagine the power of seeing people's feelings and thoughts in their auras and also being able to manipulate the colors to affect their behavior. Hunter can already heal himself, but this skill comes at a price. It drains his energy, which can send him into the Void, if he is doesn't keep up his carbs and sugar. Believable - though fantastic - and engaging, I highly recommend the "Master of Perception" Series.
