I was bored and left feeling like I only read a teaser for another book.
Bailey418
Very little humor and very little character development made this an okay but not great read.

I am looking forward to the next book in this series and hoping for some answers.

This is #9 in Castle's Ghost Hunter series.

She kind of phoned this one in. There were sections of the book where Castle (aka Krentz) couldn't be bothered with a believable back-and-forth conversation between the lead characters. One would ask a question (What did you do?), and the other would then just lecture for a page or two. And then they would do it all over again: a leading question with paragraphs of monologue. No sense of people actually interacting or communicating with each other.

Why else do we read her?

The plots are completely predictable; doesn't bother me. The blathering about the various types of energy and ability to view or manipulate same, I just ignore. The fact that the villain is going to spill everything at the climax - in chronological order, no less - and laugh maniacally while doing so, no worries.

I read her books for the characters and their conversations. The romantic leads are always people that are involved with others, take care of their responsibilities, don't whine, never use tragedies of the past as an excuse not to live: in other words, adults with whom I like spending time. Their conversations with each other (and the occasional pet or dust bunny) are why I read her, and have for years.

And why I will buy the next book, even though I was disappointed with this one.

I was really looking forward to this book coming out. I've read all of Jayne Ann Krentz's Arcane novels and really loved the other period pieces "In too Deep" and "Quicksilver" in the Looking Glass Trilogy. But this book was a disappointment for me.

In this story we meet Charlotte Enbright as a teenager living on Rainshadow Island on the planet called Harmony. She is attacked one night by three guys and is saved by her teen crush Slade Attridge. He takes her to a mysterious wooded area called the Preserve that no one knows what it's actually preserving.

Cut to 15 years later and both of them have come back to the island. She's taken over her Aunt's antique shop and he's just taken the open Sheriff's position after a bad psi burn left him unable to work for the FBPI anymore. They both feel the attraction of long ago and start having an affair. In the mean time, Slade is dealing with a murder investigation, smugglers, and trying to understand what's happening to his talent.

I had several problems with the book. First, it seemed really short. There were a lot of chapters dedicated to side characters that end up going no where. The Preserve is never explained, just set aside as a set up for another sequel. The Bridewell curiosities make an appearance, but not until near the end of the book and the bad guy is thrown in almost as an afterthought. You never feel any urgency to solve the case, because nothing happens. The heroine isn't given anything to do until the very last chapters of the book and the romance is sedate. I didn't feel any chemistry and didn't really get to know her at all. Slade's inner monologues had to tell me she was a positive, warm person. Not to mention her talent is really difficult to understand. She reads rainbows?

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This book was an enjoyable read. However, when it is viewed as the conclusion of a three part trilogy, it was weak. The glass weapons were glossed over. The engine to create the glass weapons could have been really exciting, but it was just there without anyone really understanding its importance. Rather than taking the time to conclude the current trilogy with all the suspense and detail it deserved, much of this book was used to introduce a new plot line. The Preserve is obviously in a new series, since it did not function in the plot of this one. Several characters played no real role in this book but are probably important in the next one. An allusion was made to something that must be found, but it wasn't. I don't mind a prequel to a new series. I am looking forward to a new series. However, I thought I was buying the conclusion to the current series. I feel cheated because I bought and read the first two books in this series expecting a rousing conclusion in the third. I didn't get the conclusion I was expecting.
What is with the half naked woman on the cover? This must have been Marlowe Jones, the motorcyclist, who is barely in the book. It is certainly not Charlotte, a nerdy rainbow reader with glasses.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Fifteen years ago on Rainshadow Island, Charlotte Enright was recued by her hero Slade Attridge from the assault of three drunken off islander visitors near the Preserve. She already had a young girl's crush on the orphan teenager before he saved her. She explained she could read auras, a useless talent for an arcane while he never was registered as a hunter but will soon leave for the Federal Bureau of Psi Investigation academy.

In the present, Charlotte runs her late Aunt Beatrix's Looking Glass Antiques. Slade has just retuned to be the island as the police chief though his talent has become somewhat muted after a traumatic incident though his buddy Rex the dust bunny remains at his side (and on his shoulder). As the pair starts seeing one another, she finds the corpse of a persistent customer who her father felt was a stalker; someone killed Jeremy Gaines in Charlotte's shop.

The final Looking Glass sci-fi romantic suspense (see In too Deep by Jayne Ann Krentz and Quicksilver by Amanda Quick) is an engaging and delightful paranormal police procedural. The romantic subplot within the Rainshadow otherworld realm leads in a slow deliberate manner until the homicide investigation begins about half way into the story line, but still does not pick up much speed. Still fans of the Arcane Society saga will enjoy a visit to the island of Rainshadow.
