Dr. Eve St. Giles is an epidemiologist working for the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC). She is brilliant and dedicated with a kick-ass attitude when it comes to chasing down flu bugs and saving peoples lives. Eve was special in that she had also inherited psychic abilities from her mother later discovering she is a descendent of an empathic `Marian' healer inheriting other traits that she views as both a gift and a curse.
While investigating a horrendous flu outbreak in Damassine, Swizerland which killed her sister, Eve sensed it was man-made. She later discovered it was a mutated version of the Spanish flu re-engineered specifically to target women. Hot on the trail Eve discovers her ex-lover searching for the same madman and they agree to combine forces. Trying to keep her distance from Nick Petter would be as elusive as finding the courier intent on delivering death and mayhem. The closer they come to finding the source, the closer they come to each other in a much more intense understanding of the love and passion that exists between them. In a spectacular cliff hanger-ending and finally admitting to a love that never died, Eve with other worldly guidance, would willingly lay down her own life to save the one true love of her life.
*** AWESOME! The thrilling premise of this book captivated me from the very first pages with high intensity and an emotionally compelling plot. I was fully engaged with this very sensual romantic suspense tale.Read more ›
Eve St. Giles is the best flu hunter the European Center for Disease Control (ECDC) has. She loves her job tracking down diseases and controlling them before devastation hits. But this time it's personal. When an unknown terrorist releases a deadly disease in Switzerland, Eve's sister is one of the victims. Though this outbreak has all the earmarks of the lethal Spanish Flu, it appears altered to only affect women.
Former Swiss Guard Nick is now in the private sector as a securities expert. When one of his clients, a huge pharmaceutical company discovers one of its supposedly destroyed experiments was stolen and used by a rogue former employee, Nick is called in to track down the perpetrator. His job puts him in close contact once more with Eve, his one time love, whom he's never forgotten, and they find themselves working for the same cause. But events spiral out of control, pitting them on a race against time to stop the monster responsible for the deadly epidemic before he can destroy even more women.
I love this book! Each installment of the Madonna Key is more complex and more exciting than the last, and Shadow Lines is no exception. Fans of adventure, romance, and paranormal genres will all find something to love between the covers of this story. The action begins in the opening pages when Eve is first set on the course to track down this threat to international health and safety of untold numbers of women. Enter Nick, a suave, sophisticated, and dangerously sexy guardian, and sparks are sure to fly.
The paranormal element comes to play in Eve.Read more ›
Eve begins her quest to locate the manufacturer before the deadly disease causes pandemic deaths. She uses her psychic skills and reluctantly accepts the help of her former lover, security expert Nick Petter. As the countdown nears the point of no return, Eve seeks the culprit as much as she searches for ancient healing practices that seem to have contained the lethal virus.
The fascination in this paranormal thriller comes from the ease in which Carol Stephenson incorporates a historical subplot mostly through the research Eve does that takes her back to a thirteenth century victim of the French Inquisition. The story line is fast-paced from the moment a panicked Yvette calls Eve interrupting her field work on potential Mad Cow Disease and never slows down as the heroine and her beloved teammate Nick race against the clock. This is a one sitting romantic suspense tale.
What an action packed tale! SHADOW LINES is an excellent continuation of the series about the Black Madonnas and the Marians who have protected them throughout the centuries. I have to admit that some of the twists Carol Stephenson put into the storyline were a bit unexpected, but added an entirely new layer of depth to this phenomenal series.
SHADOW LINES is easily read as a stand alone. However, readers familiar with the series will appreciate some of the secrets that are revealed. More information is provided on the Adriano family and their quest to destroy the Marians and this information sheds an entirely new light on some of the events in past books.
I love the paranormal element in SHADOW LINES. Eve's ability to sense disease is an unusual one. My only regret about the storyline is that I would have liked to see her use her gifts just a tad more, as the scenes with the flu outbreak are some of the more powerful ones I have read. SHADOW LINES is easily recommended and will appeal across genres due to the strength of the storyline.
