Fifteen years ago on Rainshadow Island, Charlotte Enright was recued by her hero Slade Attridge from the assault of three drunken off islander visitors near the Preserve. She already had a young girl's crush on the orphan teenager before he saved her. She explained she could read auras, a useless talent for an arcane while he never was registered as a hunter but will soon leave for the Federal Bureau of Psi Investigation academy.

In the present, Charlotte runs her late Aunt Beatrix's Looking Glass Antiques. Slade has just retuned to be the island as the police chief though his talent has become somewhat muted after a traumatic incident though his buddy Rex the dust bunny remains at his side (and on his shoulder). As the pair starts seeing one another, she finds the corpse of a persistent customer who her father felt was a stalker; someone killed Jeremy Gaines in Charlotte's shop.

The final Looking Glass sci-fi romantic suspense (see In too Deep by Jayne Ann Krentz and Quicksilver by Amanda Quick) is an engaging and delightful paranormal police procedural. The romantic subplot within the Rainshadow otherworld realm leads in a slow deliberate manner until the homicide investigation begins about half way into the story line, but still does not pick up much speed. Still fans of the Arcane Society saga will enjoy a visit to the island of Rainshadow.

good story

If you like the other stories of this series you will not be disappointed. It is still the great writing and character building that she does in all her books.

    Great read

    I adore reading the trilogies that cross all 3 of Jayne Castle's pen names.

    A contemporary Arcane story transplanted to Harmony

    I really enjoy Castle/Krentz's writing style and this book fits neatly into her worlds. This book, which takes place on Harmony, has little of the ghost hunter culture about it and feels much more like one of her contemporary Arcane novels that just happens to take place on Harmony. She spends less time in explaining the world in this book, which I appreciated. But, a new reader to either Arcane or Harmony would benefit from having read some of her earlier books.

    Fabulous Series! Must Read!

    This is part of the Arcane Society, and a great read! Action, adventure, love, and hot monkey sex in the heat of passion! Kudos to Ms Jayne Anne Krentz/Castle! I couldn't wait to read it and was said when this episode was over! Please keep them coming!

    Dust Bunny's rule

    I love this series with the dust bunnies. I read everything Jayne Catle/Jayne Ann Krentz/Amanda Quick writes and have for many years.

    It was ok

    I have read all of Jayne Ann Krentz books under the her other name (Amanda Quick and Jayne Ann Krentz). I have always love all her books. But, this book (Canyons of Night) was not one of my favorites. It was ok, but it left me lost at times. I felt it lacked her wit, sense of adventure and passion that she usually have in her other books. I still remain a loyal fan and look forward to reading more.

    very good

    It is part of a series and you have to know a little bit of what's going on to understand all the other people mentioned because they refer to the other books in the series. It is taking the series in a different direction.

    Great book

    Loved book 3 in the series. Never been disappointed in any of her books. Can't wait for the next book she writes. Have enjoy these series that she writes across 3 time periods. It is very interesting to see how she links them together.
