From The Shadowsby Janie Quinn Storck
Anne Merrill, a reluctant psychic, becomes an OSS agent in World War II and soon finds herself not only fighting the regular war but, also, a psychic war with her powerful, psychic father, Albert. He and the worldwide, ancient, secret society, the Chhayas Society (Shadows Society), are using psychic powers along with earth forces that magnify those powers to assist the Nazis. Besides honing her psychic abilities to triumph over her father, Anne, also, uses them in the regular war effort when she plays cat-and-mouse games with a female, Nazi spy in Istanbul. Later, she is thrust into the heart of the Third Reich, Berlin, when OSS penetrates the Third Reich to gain valuable inside information. During all this, Anne and fellow OSS agent, half-white, half-Navajo, Paul Bancroft, who is haunted by the shadow of a terrible, hereditary disease, fall in love. At the book's conclusion, the otherworldly battle and the ordinary battle merge into one.

One of those books that you can't put down. You'll feel as if you know each character. What a great story combining WWII, spying, and the psychic world. By the time I was finished I was hoping that the movie would soon follow.
"From the Shadows" brings to life the exciting and frightening world of psychic espionage during WWII and the power its players can have on the outcome of war and personal lives. Anne Merrill, an innocent young American living in Bermuda, wants to help the Allies at the onset of the war. Her efforts eventually lead her deep into Germany as a psychic spy, battling the ancient Shadows Society who is assisting the Nazis. She soon discovers her greatest adversary is her German-born father, also a psychic, whose allegiance lies with his homeland and who will stop at nothing to bring her over to his side. Ms. Storck has done an excellent job of tying history into a shadowy otherworld where the human mind is the weapon, a surreal world that might be more real than we know. This is a book I couldn¿t put down, a psychological thriller I highly recommend.
