Where do I start? Again this book starts in the future the year 2094. Mira is a healer, daughter of a famous healer in her world, doctor in ours. It is wartime, and Mira tries to keep her powers secret by being a nurse for our troops. She is a "shadow" not really making friends, not even conversing with patients, for fear she will be found out. She meets a soldier, they share a kiss...
Flash to the year 2096 and Mira is before a tribunal, just barely escaping with some help from her mother, to be taken to a place of safety. It is here Brent Jameson, an ex Special Forces soldier, is on a surveillance job outside a building on a college campus in Chicago, looking for something that will tie it into a case they are working on. He sees Mira and does not believe his eyes... It was all about "that Kiss".
Regan Black has assembled the whole gang, Slick Mickey and all, to help Mira and Brent solve the mystery. There are kidnappings, murders, plotting, and a dynamite ride for all the wonderful characters we have come to love during the series. It was great seeing them and hearing from them, like seeing old friends.
Mira has battles to overcome both physically and emotionally. The time shared with Jameson is both sizzling and tender. Jameson is a war tired young man, indisputably tall and handsome, who has to decide what is more important to him, and that is hard when they both cannot keep their hands off each other.
The search for her father and the thought of him being a traitor to the country and himself plays heavily on Mira's decisions, and her ability to trust these new people who want to be called friends. It is a strange feeling to her, having never had any.
Ms. Black's stories are fast moving, page turners, filled with concise descriptions and lots of action when needed, and lots of banter between the characters. After the last book I read, I thought Slick Mickey's story was the greatest book in the series that I read, but again Ms. Black has pulled another rabbit out of her hat. They keep getting better and better. Mira who when we began this book believed by her own feelings that she was a mouse. By the end we saw the Mouse Roar!!!
Okay Regan, must say I am addicted to Chicago 2090 something. Your books are a rare treat for someone that reads many books a week for reviews and for pleasure... Your books are pure pleasure. Cannot wait to see what you have up your sleeve for us next.
Review by Gloria Lakritz
Review Chair and Sr Reviewer for the Paranormal Romance Guild Review Team
Mira's power to heal and save her patients are kept well-hidden, but rumors always spring up and she's forced to move on. She keeps her heart and life closed off knowing she can't settle with anyone in one place. After a brief love affair with a soldier at on of her short-term medical jobs, everything blows up and she bumps back into the guy she can't stop thinking.
Luckily for Mira and the reader, Jameson couldn't stop thinking about that cute nurse, Mira, he had to leave behind after his special opps assignment ended. She pops on at the site of a building he's assigned to watch and she's in danger.
Once Jameson and Mira are reunited, the action really takes off. There are so many factions after Mira and her father and healers in general that it can get a little confusing, but Mira holds tight to Jameson and as their relationship strengthens, all the pieces of the story fall into place.
Lots of fun! Congrats to Regan Black for having so much fun as a writer and writing stories to let the readers who love paranormal romances escape into a fantasy that is intriguing, fast-paced and a good read!Shadows to Light (Shadows of Justice)
This rapid-paced novel caught my attention from the very beginning. Just as these soldiers are tossed into immediate combat, so the reader is tossed into a hot and sizzling convoluted plot line involving biological warfare, standard warfare, a futuristic apocalyptic setting-and a "Healer," one who must conceal her skills, yet needs to use them or else risk going insane from bottling away her talents.
But in a real upheaval of the entire purpose of a healing society, Mira discovers that she is about to lose her powers, and perhaps, even be executed-all because she desired to help a wounded prisoner. Amazing it is to discover this type of hierarchy among those "unusuals" who are gifted with powers beyond normal comprehension-they have become so authoritarian and despotic. In a world crying out desperately for healing and succor, these "judges" decide who gets help, and how little help can be offered. And woe betide any healer who steps beyond that line!
I haven't yet read the first four books in this series, so I can confidently state that this book functions very well as a stand-alone novel. (That doesn't mean I won't be rushing to read the first four-I will!) For any reader who likes urban fantasy-with a scientific twist; futuristic settings; and may I add, seriously hot special operations men-in and out of the military- who come very well-equipped, this book will be a treasured and re-read gem.
