With only three books to her credit, Marjorie Liu moves like a veteran onto the paranormal stage in this gripping thriller, with plenty of action, characters with amazing talents, and a tender love story.
Like the first novel in the series (Tiger Eye), this well-crafted sequel features an agency that employs the gifted and tormented, including Russian émigré Arthur Loginov, a psychometrist who learns secrets by touch alone. The story begins with Elena Baxter, a natural healer who is treating cancer patients in a pediatric hospital and achieving an unbelievable success rate. When Elena is kidnapped by an evil cabal who seek to take over the world, she finds she is not the only prisoner. Elena and Arthur ultimately escape with a couple of of shapeshifters (one cheetah, one dolphin), and the wary bunch with their special gifts need to trust each other to get out alive. For Arthur, it becomes a choice between saving his pride and saving Elena.
Bestselling romance writer Christine Feehan gave this book a rave, and it's easy to see why. Ginger Curwen
