Karen’s Review

Impossibly, the author manages to ramp up the storyline once more. This book is a real page turner in every sense of the word. I absolutely loved it!

I struggled with the first page as it didn’t quite make sense. An acronym was used that I didn’t understand, and the first couple of paragraphs I had to read again. But that didn’t really matter and I was soon straight into the storyline.

As an update to that and having read the next book where it appears again, I now know what it is, and seems obvious but at the time floored me. B&E is not something I’ve come across but simply means breaking and entering. I don’t know why I didn’t make the connection, but didn’t.

I another problem with so many scenes left the reader, as well as Emelyn on a knife edge. It was difficult to put down. Chapters didn’t help, because one made me want to straight to the next to find out what happened.

Emlynn’s mother returns to the story and knows nothing about her gift. As they are living together, it has some tricky situations. Emlynn is put into a difficult situation as her mother suspects something is going on.

Her relationship with the hated Tribunal Noverm improves as she becomes close to two of its members. There are some great characters whom you know you like even before Emlynn does.

This is such a great series that’s seems to improve with every book..
