North Chastain possesses a paranormal talent that gives him the ability to track down the most dangerous psychic criminals. When his father suddenly falls into a coma-like state, North is convinced it was caused by a deadly artifact that traces back to the days of a secret government program known only as the Bluestone Project. North knows his only hope of saving his father is to find the artifact. He is good when it comes to tracking down killers, but to locate the relic he’s going to need help from a psychic who knows the shadowy world of obsessive collectors, deceptive dealers and ruthless raiders….

With her reputation in ruins after a false accusation, antiques expert Sierra Raines is looking for a fresh start. She turns to the murky backwaters of the paranormal artifacts trade, finding and transporting valuable objects with a psychic provenance. When North Chastain approaches her for help, Sierra takes him on as a client, though not without reservations. North represents the mysterious Foundation, the secretive organization established to police the underworld populated by psychic criminals and those, like Sierra, who make a living in the shadows of that world.

North and Sierra soon find themselves at the scene of the Incident, which occurred decades ago in Fogg Lake. The town and its residents were forever changed by the disaster in the nearby Bluestone Project labs. The pair unearths shocking truths about what happened that fateful night, but they are playing with fire-someone in town knows what they’ve discovered and will do anything to make sure the secrets stay buried.

My Thoughts

Oh wow, this was one fast, action-packed and utterly unputdownable book!

I found this one such an improvement on the first book. It felt like the stakes were higher, the suspense was sharper and the paranormal abilities were much more thrilling. I loved the idea of North’s power and I was fully on-board with our kickass heroine Sierra. The characters in this one were not the bland ones in book 1, they sparked with life and chemistry from their first appearance on page.

There is a lot to digest in the plot, and it does get a little convoluted at times but I never felt lost or confused. The plot was so riveting as all the little clues were uncovered, that it kept you on your toes the entire time. I did feel some parts were a bit too coincidental but I was genuinely surprised by the way the plot turned out in some cases.

My favourite part of this book however was hands down the characters. They are so different from their counterparts in book 1. I did complain in my review for that one about the character’s needing more of a backstory, and not feeling connected to them because they felt unfinished. I had no such problems in this one! Right from the start I adored how North and Sierra just connected, seamlessly becoming equal partners during their investigations. I loved how they each had a part to play and whilst North may have slightly outshone Sierra in some places, she definitely was no pushover either. I loved that North never downplayed her abilities just because he was the hero, he never kept her apart from the action but trusted in her abilities. He got major points for that!

This series is improving in leaps and bounds and I am so excited to carry on and read the next one! Fingers crossed we finally have Olivia as our heroine!
