While trying to handle her demanding workload, Nell also has the complicated task of figuring out how to help and protect her young sister, Mindy, who is like Nell: not human and also having her special talents and connection to the earth. Adding to all this, she is trying to deal with the bizarre and dangerous, almost sentient, vampire tree on church property, and the evil that is left of her old adversary, both of whom are causing problems so Nell has several challenges.
Those of you who follow the Jane Yellowrock series will be interested to see how Rick fares after his last encounter with Jane. Life is weighing heavily on the former player and ladies’ man who is still learning to deal with his recent ability to finally shift. With the full moon coming soon, Rick and Occam have catty issues to deal with adding to the fun.
So much of the townie world is still new to Nell including Occam’s romantic interest. Since they work together, Nell has to figure out not only what she wants, but how to deal with it on the job. She constantly fights with learned behaviors leftover from growing up in an extremely restrictive fundamentalist church coupled with her experiences as a very young wife and widow. In this book, Nell’s confidence in her skills and determination to be her own woman unfettered by the past figure greatly. She likes who she is becoming, but all the new complicated feelings especially for Occam, new people in her life, and her evolving connection to Soulwood keeps Nell very unsettled indeed.
Faith Hunter always gives her readers much to chew on concerning her characters, their complicated and often dangerous jobs, and complex relationships. Nell is a captivating woman whose continued evolution is quite unique and fascinating to watch. The unfolding story of what kind of being Nell is with her unusual growing abilities continues to be an exciting tale to be told.
Five supernova, fiery, supernova, pick up this book (or book one) immediately stars!
Stop whatever you're doing and pick up Faith Hunter. Seriously, right now. This woman's Jane Yellowrock series is AWESOME as it is, but she's at the top of her game when she writes about Nell Nicholson Ingram, PsyLED probie and all-around kickass protagonist.
This time around, a Senator's family survives (mostly) an assassination attempt, and a bunch of different law enforcement agencies are called in -- including the PsyLED unit composed of Nell and friends, thanks to some vampire presence at the location of the attempted killing.
Things burn out of control (fire pun intended!) from there, as the twisted maze of clues and suspects and paranormal creatures pile up into a giant plate of spaghetti, story threads twisted together into a top-notch entry into her already top-notch Soulwood series. We get a ton of growth in a handful of the main characters, Nell included, and we even get a little more insight into her families -- her actual family in the church, and her "townie" PsyLED family.
Overall, Faith has created a very deep character that is easy to connect with, spun a fantastic yarn of a tale, and as always, left me begging for more... and thankfully, she's contracted for more now. I'm so relieved to hear that this isn't going to end as a trilogy, because it (along with Jane) has a rightful spot in my top favorite series.
Seriously, you read all this, even though I told you at the beginning to stop and go read Faith Hunter? I guess I'm flattered, but you're terrible at following directions! :)
