    This supernatural thriller is a stunning read

    In return for owning paintings from the masters, Dr. Bartholomew Wax agrees to use gene manipulation and DNA sequencing to create Violets for the North American Afterlife Communications Corps. Violets are mediums who use a touchstone belonging to a dead person so they can have that soul inhabit the Violet¿s body. When the consequences of his actions become too much for him, the Oslo scientist kills his subjects and commits suicide. His handler Carl Pancrit frees the Violet Killer Evan Markham who wants Violet Natalie Lindstrom Carl promises to get her for him if he channels Bartholomew to complete his work.-------------------- The NAACC wants Natalie back in their organization and they want to place her daughter Callie under their protection and at their school where she will get training in how to be a medium. Natalie left because she didn¿t want her or her daughter under their control and she is now working a living channeling dead artists who possesses her and paints masterpieces. Ex-Con Colin Criswell has undergone some of the treatments to become a Violet but he can¿t keep the dead from knocking at his mind. He goes to Natalie for help and the two artists are attracted to each other but the Violet Killer and Pancrit kidnaps them both to use as hostages to force Bartholomew to complete his work only the dead can free them if they are strong enough.----------------- The latest Violet book is action packed yet characters driven. The heroine is trying her best to make a life for her and her daughter but their freedom costs them the enmity of the NAACC (they want her and the daughter under their control as they are both powerful Violets). Surprisingly, it is Carrie who makes a startling decision concerning her own life that impact on her mother and their future. This supernatural thriller is a stunning read with a knock-out punch of an ending.--------------- Harriet Klausner

    I loved this series!  It is one of my top recommendations for anyone that likes a book with an interesting twist.  I hope S. Woodworth never stops writing new books for this series!  I have read them all and have had a hard time putting them down once I start.

    Sad to see Series Ending

    This was a fairly good read. I really enjoyed the first two books in the series the best. I am sad to hear this author won't be continuing the series.

    Compared with Woodworth's other books, this one seems both more daring and less satisfying. Not enough research into genetics creates a lazy thread for the plot -- I was disappointed. The ending was way too rushed, melodramatic and, much as I hate to say it, supercheesy, as in velveeta. I also felt Woodworth's imagination greatly let him down he seemed bored by his own characters, who appeared made of cardboard and were predictable in the extreme.
