Split Sense by Barbara Ellen Brink is, at the risk of sounding cliché, a real page turner. It is very well written; full of action, twists and turns, intrigue and a well thought out though complex story line. The book begins in 1995 with a frightened schizophrenic woman being chased and killed, but not before her twin babies are taken alive. Thus begins a complex web of deceit and subterfuge that centers around a pharmaceutical company that has been experimenting on pregnant women. The hope is to find a cure for mental illness, but instead, a deeper and deeper web of lies forms. The infants that are saved are separated and a company employee takes one to raise as his own son. The girl twin was presumed dead by the company, but through some undercover work of her own, the attending doctor saves the girl and places her with another family, unbeknown to anyone.

We progress through the years, visiting both twins as they grow and mature. Each one seems to have a special ‘gift’. The boy can sense other people’s feelings and even begins to read minds. The girl has an unexplainable gift for healing through music. Meanwhile, the pharmaceutical company has continued its experiments on another set of twins, with frightening results.

Zander, the twin boy, begins looking for answers, but then those who know the truth begin to die, either through freak accidents or other means. The tension just keeps building. In the end, the story comes to happy and satisfying conclusion, but not before we are left with another surprise twist right at the end. I highly recommend this book to those who love a fast paced story with lots of twists and intrigue. ( )

Split Sense is the winner of the 2011 Grace Awards for speculative fiction. Here is the what the judges said: "At the risk of sounding clich, one awesome read! This speculative thriller is full of action, intrigue and a touch of science fiction. The plot twists and turns as we follow the lives of fraternal twins -- a brother and sister, each of whom has an unexplainable, seemingly supernatural, 'gift'. Adopted separately as infants, neither knows of the other's existence until fate brings them together to combat a complex web of deceit and subterfuge that centers around a pharmaceutical company that has been conducting secret experiments on humans. Ms. Brink draws the reader in almost immediately and the surprises keep coming, right up to the very end. From a Christian perspective, the gospel is clearly presented but it never impedes the story or becomes preachy. As well, the supernatural events are woven in seamlessly and are not over explained, allowing a certain sense of mystery to prevail even after the conclusion. If you're not a speculative fan already, you will be after reading SPLIT SENSE. It's well written on every level and deserves its place in the 'Grace Awards' winner's circle." ### Book blurb: When Steven Howard and his wife are given the opportunity to adopt one of the test subjects from the secret Sensiline Project, he doesn't fully understand the danger or how far the company is willing to go to unleash and control the baby's potential gifts. He only knows that his love for and need to protect his new son, now trumps his loyalty to the company. Zander Howard has been able to hear the thoughts of those around him for as long as he can remember. Sometimes he is overwhelmed with feelings of anger, joy, or fear that is not his own. He tastes words, feels sounds, is surrounded with voices in the dark of night. He is Howard Pharmaceutical's prize guinea pig. He wishes to be free of the company and their mind games, but his father is caught up in their web of deceit and can't bring the Company down without destroying his family in the process. Emma Tatum has been sheltered in a small town with loving parents who have no idea she's not their own flesh and blood. She also has a gift. The ability to heal with music. She sees colors of mercy and grace fly from her fingers with each note she plays. When the twins are reunited, nothing will stop them from seeking the truth about their origins, but someone is willing to commit murder to keep the project secret, while others want to possess the power of the twins. For a boy who has been used his entire life, learning to trust isn't easy. But through Emma, Zander has a glimpse of a loving God whose plan of providence has brought them together at just the right time.… (more)
