    an engaging and delightful paranormal police procedural

    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.

    So worth it!

    I do not normally read sci-fi but tried out Jayne Castle's series because I have enjoyed her books written under other names about the Arcane Society (historicals and contemporaries).

    I am glad I tried out the sci-fi genre. This story grabbed me from the start and never let go. I was so tempted to read forward to see what was going to happen. I did not have to, though, because the story was so fast paced.

    Jayne Ann Krentz alias Amanda Quick alias Jayne Castle (what is this woman's real name?) writes the best dialogue that I have ever read. It is witty, realistic and endears the characters to this reader.

    Her books are a must read for me, no exceptions, no matter what name she writes them under.

    Very Good!

    As always Jayne Castle lures her readers into her stories with twists and turns leading to mystery and love. This, the third book of her looking glass trilogy is no exception. Read the first two before reading this one for the whole story. Very, very good.

    Good Read

    So glad for the new one in the Arcane series. It's a bit slower paced than most of the other books, but still a very enjoyable read and it does pick up later on. We meet Slade, the dark, mysterious yet kind hero who's having a crisis with his abilities. And Charlotte the shy, sweet underappreciated Rainbow talent who has some impressive secrets of her own. Match making townies, murder, thugs and a strange new power emerging in the forest keep throwing them together, just as it did all those years ago, fate has a way of making you wonder what if? Top that all off with new talents, new glasswork weapons and new foes and you have a pretty interesting plot to keep you reading cover to cover. Oh, and did I mention pirates? I am so excited for the next book in the series I can barely stand it.
    We also see some old favorites in Adam and Marlowe, and of course the dust bunnies are back. Who can't adore a tiny creature who likes to steal shinny items, kill rubber duckies and eat three times it's weight each day?

    Psychic Crime

    Set in Castle’s world of Harmony, a planet settled by Old World Earth’s decedents 2 hundred yrs in our future. A murder has been committed by psychic means in an antique shop on Rainshadow Island. Slade, acting as the new police chief, recently from the FBPI (Federal Bureau of Psychic Investigation) joins with antique shop owner, Charlotte, and Rex (a pseudo-deputy “dust bunny”) to solve this mystery. Castle’s stories are always good reads for me, if somewhat predictable.

    kept me completely engrossed

    Canyon of the Night, the third book in the Looking Glass Trilogy, takes place on the colonized planet of Harmony. The setting is Rainshadow Island. Protagonist, Charlotte Enright is back on the island after inheriting an antique shop called The Looking Glass. Slade Attridge, a former FBPI agent, returns to accept the chief of police position. They both feel an instant connection, but personal demons leave them leery. Things quickly heat up after a break-in and murder at the Looking Glass. Someone on the island wants them dead and something is definitely wrong with the Preserve. I liked the main characters and was intrigued by some of the town's people. Foreshadowing leads me to believe we will meet them again. The novel is filled with suspense as they work to unravel the mystery. The romance is steamy and discreet, a talent that only Castle (Krentz) can deliver. While wrapping up the murder investigation, the book left many unanswered questions about the Preserve. The story kept me completely engrossed and had me saying things like, "one more chapter and I'll go to bed." I am looking forward to the next book in this series and hoping for some answers.

    Highly recommended!

    This is Castle at the top of her game! Not as formulaic as she had started to become-- characters were more interesting. Can't wait to read the next installment.

    Not her best work!

    I usually have no problem with Jayne Castle but this one was a big disappointment. I was barely able to finish it. Couldn't really connect with the characters or the plot and her books are starting to resemble each other too much.

    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.

    Seriously good book!

    I enjoy this author in all the names she uses. Canyons of Night has so many twists to the story that I'd like followed, it needs to become a series of it's own. It's ... a who-done-it, romance, paranormal, eerie, can't put it down page turner. Can't wait for the next one.

    Good, but not her best-I didn't like the way it was set up for a sequel, seemed a little more lightweight thatn usual.

    Highly recommend and you must check it out if you enjoy this type of book.

    This book is part of a series written by Jayne Ann Krentz under her own name, the name Jayne Castle(her maiden name), and Amanda Quick. This paticular book is set in the future on a planet people from Earth settled in and then found they could leave. If I were you, I would check out the books from the entire series which began at least three years ago. This book had great characters which you will like and completes a series about deadly mechanical items which can kill.
