Kelley Armstrong comes up with a wonderfully fresh take on mediums and the media in this fusion of paranormal romance and mystery set against the backdrop of a reality TV show.
Necromancer Jaime Vegas sees and hears the dead (it's a family trait). At age 44, she gets what may be her last big shot at fame when she is chosen as one of several mediums to appear on a new reality show. The stated goal for the pilot is to raise the ghost of Marilyn Monroe. Her fellow mediums don't raise up much of anything. Jaime, on the other hand, discovers the ghosts of many dead children and uncovers a sinister murder conspiracy. Naturally, she earns the jealousy of her costars in the process and disrupts the producer's timetable, even as she comes to terms with her own powers -- and her future. Jaime's boyfriend, Jeremy Denvers, introduced in Bitten, is along for some of the ride. This is Armstrong's first hardcover and seventh title in the Otherworld series, which should rightly earn her many more fans. Ginger Curwen
