Library Journal
The only thing that surprises high-level glasslight talent Virginia Dean more than waking up in a glittering mirrored room next to a dead body is having enigmatic investigator Owen Sweetwater, a man she has little reason to trust, come to her rescue. But Owen is not there by accident. He is hunting a killer targeting glasslight readers, and he badly needs Virginia's help. Intrigued, Virginia warily agrees, never thinking that in working so closely with Owen to unmask a sociopath, she will fall in love with, and be claimed by, one of the most dangerous men she has ever met. This is the second in the trilogy within the larger "Arcane Society" series featuring books written by Jayne Ann Krentz under all of her noms de plume. Quicksilver follows the contemporary In Too Deep by Krentz. The last book, Canyons of Night by Jayne Castle, Krentz's futuristic alter ego, is scheduled for a September release. VERDICT Once again the ever-entertaining Quick treats readers to a wickedly witty, mercurial tale, filled with her own sexy brand of humor-laced sensuality, an abundance of intriguing characters (including a dazzling collection of Millicent Bridewell's exquisitely made, deadly clockwork toys), and a lively adventure successfully resolved but lightly peppered with tantalizing hints of what's to come. Quick lives in the Seattle area. [See Prepub Alert, 10/25/10.]

This book is one of my favorite books by Jayne Krentz. I discovered her books in my local library years ago and haven't been able to stop reading her yet. I enjoyed the story of Virginia and Owen and felt even without the paranormal angle the story would still have been a good one.

I look forward to each new book in this series, and this one was wonderful. As always Quick gives warm loveable characters, suspense, romance and a touch of paranormal..can't wait for book 3

I couldn't tell if I'd read her other books with characters alluded to in this one or just descriptioins and/or reviews; not a lot to distinguish this story line from others. It was still a decent escape read. I did find the wrap-up paragraphs a little rushed.

I loved Quicksilver. The story was well told and interesting. The heroine and hero are always exciting. Can't wait to read the next one.
