A romance with so many twists and turns you need paper and pencil to keep track. I think the editor needed one too because he/she missed catching a couple of things here and there.
The story moves along quickly. Is entertaining, but was so familiar I wasn't sure if I was watching an 80's Saturday afternoon horror movie unfold before my eyes. Then again, some of it sounded like the adult version of Secret Circle. It isn't a bad story. In fact, I enjoyed it and the set up for book 2 is quite interesting.
The dynamic between Ivy, Eli and Jake is well done. Her dependency upon Jake grows slowly, subtly even as Eli forces her attention to himself. The way this protagonist to antagonist develops is a mind trip. The whole book is a mind trip, or a walk down horror movie memory lane, however you choose to look at it.
Moving to Sedona was the only way Ivy could think of to start over. She would meet her high school sweetheart and work on making things right between them. Her psychic abilities were gradually becoming a curse and she needed a new start. Little does she know that when she applies for a waitressing job at a local, upscale French bistro, she will come in contact with the dark and mysterious Eli Dubois. What she doesn’t realize is she has just walked into the middle of the Vortex Murders, which involve a great deal of paranormal activity. Elijah’s army of seers are being murdered, one by one, which seems to be magnifying Ivy’s special abilities.
Eli's best friend, Jake, arrives on the scene and reveals the secret that changes everything. With nowhere to turn, Ivy leans on the two men who offer her solace. And who is the old woman in the shroud? Is she a vision, a dream, or is she real? Only time will tell.
