    Jam-Packed

    A jam-packed novel filled with characters who are strangely similar yet vastly different. Each one has its own powers and side it's loyal to.

    Joanna/Olivia born of both Shadow and Light has been blacklisted and forgotten by both groups. She gave up her powers to save a mortal child; because of that, she lost everything including healing and speed as well as countless other "gifts".

    Joanna herself was on the side of Light, until she became mortal herself in the form of her sister Olivia. She never dreamed of pairing up with anyone from the Shadows, but finds herself in need of protection when many-from both sides-want her gone.for good.

    People from her "superhero" past still haunt her.

    Pettersson's use of adjectives and analogies is very catchy and unique giving her story wings. By far, my favorite analogy is, 'Her mouth was rimmed in crimson, like she'd been smoking blood.' A crystal-clear picture of the woman's lips came to me immediately; as far as I'm concerned being able to do such a thing is a rare talent that Pettersson possesses in spades.

    She also gave an apt description of another character named, Lindy Maguire when she said, '.humans were walking squeaky toys to her.' Pettersson's expertise is profound and delightful to say the least. Her vast talent surpasses any other fantasy novel I've read. Give yourself a gift and pick up this latest installment from Pettersson; you won't be sorry.
