Under My Skin (Immortality Strain #1) by Shawntelle Madison

Synopsis

Everyone wants to either be a member of the Guild or work for them. Little does the populace know that the Guild hides sinister secrets...
For Tate Sullivan, life in her small, coastal town is far from glamorous. The affluent lives of the Guild members and their servants isn't something she has ever wanted. But all sixteen year-olds must take a simple test, and Tate's result thrusts her into the Guild's world, one where they hide horrible plans for those they select. Tate must fight the relentless General Dagon for control of her mind, body, and soul to keep the one precious thing she has always taken for granted: herself.
Her only ally is the same handsome boy she is pitted against in General Dagon’s deadly game. Quinn desires nothing more than to end the life of General Dagon who has taken over Tate's mind. While romance blooms between Tate and Quinn, General Dagon plots to eventually take over Tate's body, and love might end before it even begins.

My Thoughts
★★★★★ 5 Stars
I honestly don't think I can write a review without giving some of the story away, so you'll be reading this at your own risk. If you don't mind a few spoilers, keep on reading. If you hate all spoilers, stop reading now. 
May I just say, "WOW!" and "WHAO!"
I was shocked when I was actually able to get into this book, really. Because mind control or things like that really aren't my cup of tea at all. Had I not knew already this was just plainly about humans who figured out how to switch into someone else's body, I would have thought this was about aliens and they'd take over your body like Hosts or something. Glad it wasn't, I can't stand aliens. (Sorry, all you alien lovers out there. I meant no harm, just isn't my thing.) 
Shawntelle Madison really keeps you guessing up till the very end. I thought for sure the old fart would win out. But after that ending, oh man. I had to fight the urge to jump up and pump my fist in the air going "♫Oh yeah! Uh-huh! It's ya birthday!♫"
*Cough* pretty sure new age kids won't get that 90's reference. Haha.
But yeah. This book was pretty good. 5 Stars!
