Once again, Jami Gray has given us an action packed book that will take your breath away. Seriously, it is non-stop, and there is a point when Tag recounts everything that has happened to Risia over the past three days, and it is unreal! The writing is of such quality though, that it doesn't seem 'too much', and you are not lost with what is happening.
Think of this book like Shrek's onion analogy! There is layer upon layer of action, intrigue and yes, betrayal."

From the Author
Q: Are your main characters completely imaginary or do they have some basis in real people? Do they reflect aspects of yourself?
A: I can't speak for every writer, but many I know have to agree, some small piece of ourselves end up in one form or fashion in our characters. I'm no different. I may not be able to say, "When Cyn's being a stubborn jackass, that's me!" but yes, they way my characters react in various situations may (I said may) reflect some personal bias. And there may be an aspect or two of people I run into that pop out of characters, but overall, no--my characters are not based on specific people.
Q: Where did the idea for your story come from?
A: I've always been fascinated by the arena of psychic abilities, plus I may have a teeny-tiny bit of a conspiracy theorist residing in a small dark corner. I also read a great deal outside of fiction, and one particular book, THE SEARCH FOR THE MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE by John D. Marks, which follows the history of behavioral science and the CIA, helped sparked the idea. After finishing that book, I moved on to THE PSYCHOPATH NEXT DOOR. Um, yeah, my research library of non-fiction titles would be scary to an outsider.
Q: What are some of your favorite books and why?
A: My list is long, way longer than you have time for, but Urban Fantasy is my first love, Romantic Suspense is right behind it. The ability to tie in the paranormal with heart-pounding action while two characters figure out what the hell is between them--priceless (yep, hearing that credit card commercial in my head now). One of my all time favorite authors is Patricia Briggs of the Mercy Thompson series. I so want to be her when I grow up. Her characters are so heart-breakingly real, I don't ever want her stories to end. Same goes with Ilona Andrews and her Kate Daniels series, even Jennifer Estep's Elemental Assassin. Anne Bishop and Catherine Feehan's stuff are always a must have. I have a crush on Jim Butcher (Dresden Files) and Kevin Hearne (Iron Druid Chronicles). Yet, Cynthia Eden, Kaylea Cross, Stephanie Tyler, Natasza Waters, and Rebecca Zanetti are also a group I'd love to be associated with. Not to mention Iris Johansen and Lisa Jackson. All of these authors, their characters are real and linger long after I put a book down, enough so I re-read until all that's left is tattered pages.
