Nell Ingram and her crew from PsyLED, the paranormal Homeland Security team, are called to investigate a fiery attack at the mansion where a fundraiser for Sen. Abrams Tolliver was being held. No one knows for sure if there was paranormal involvement, but the would-be assassin had vanished on the security cameras. As the attacks continue, Nell and the PsyLed team discover that malevolent forces are involved. Defeating this group will take all of Nell's powers—and that may not be enough. Further threaded into the main plot are several emotional secondary story lines involving Nell's relationships, old and new.
VERDICT Set in the same world as Hunter's "Jane Yellowrock" novels, this final volume in the trilogy (Blood of the Earth; Curse of the Land) is an exciting paranormal adventure and satisfying conclusion to this urban fantasy series.
