Blessed or cursed with a connection to the souls of others, Sloan Jordan can see the best in people…and the worst. With nothing more than a glance at a photograph, she can judge the living from the dead and the good souls from the evil ones. For twenty-seven years, she’s kept her ability a secret, but eleven young women have been murdered in the mountains of North Carolina, and Sloan may be the only hope of finding their killer.
She has just agreed to help Detective Nathan McNamara with the case, when a stranger—who is as alluring as he is terrifying—shows up at her doorstep with a dark past and another puzzling mystery: she can’t see his soul at all.
Now Sloan is on the hunt for a deadly psychopath with two irresistible men. One of them would die for her, and the other would kill to keep her safe.
When I started reading the story, I didn’t know what to expect other than great writing that Elicia always provides. She didn’t disappoint this time around. But, let’s not dwell on simple praise here.
If I had to describe this book in one word it would be: ‘unique’. I shall continue to elaborate on that. The characters were so well rounded and developed that I fell in love with them and rooted for each and every one of them. The mystery around the whole story was amazingly done and unpredictable – and I usually am pretty good at predicting stories. So, this was a breath of fresh air. There is humour, too. I had laughed like a little, gleeful girl at times because the interaction between the characters was just so well done.
Truly, from the mystery to the supernatural element to the relationships shown in this story, I cannot find any faults in it. It was simply a great page-turner. I’m sure anyone reading this will have a huge smile left by the end of it.
