Abandoned. Hunted. Out of control.
Gethyon Rees had always felt at odds with the universe, and hoped for an escape among the stars. But discovering he has the ability to cross time and space with just a thought brings more problems than it solves: a deadly bounty hunter who can follow him anywhere, the unwelcome return of Tarquin Secker—the mother who abandoned him—and an ancient darkness that seeks him and all those with his talents.
When an unforgivable act sets him on the run, it’ll take more than his unearthly powers to save his skin and the lives of those he cares about. It’ll take a sacrifice he never expected to have to make.

Gethyon gets an unreserved five stars from me. If I'd had the time to read it in one sitting, I would have done so for sure. Jay introduces us to Quin's twin children, Gethyon and Callon, but in particular Gethyon. Inheriting psi-talents from his father, the Eidar Darion, Gethyon is in danger from the Siah-dhu, a dark entity that preys on his kind. For this reason, Quin leaves Gethyon and Callon with their human grandfather so that she can distract the Siah-dhu from their presence. This coming-of-age story takes us on a journey as we watch Gethyon's initial unwitting use of his powers through to the point where he is in full control of them and able to face the Siah-dhu. At the same time, we watch Gethyon changing from an angry young man - a hangover from an early encounter with his mother - into an assured adult. Jay's pen depicts characters and worlds alike with a deftness that transports the reader into the visions she creates. Pain, agony, acceptance and joy alike flow off the pages, and oh, there's this one bit that makes me wince/cringe/shudder like no other writing I've read. Spoilers! I pick up every new work that Jay publishes without hesitation, and I have yet to regret it. This is another masterpiece!
