I won this book in a giveaway hosted by the author.
Will destiny be enough to break her free of a lifetime of secrets?
Knox, the Seeker, has waited two hundred years for his Watcher and now he's found her. Paxtyn, however, is unwilling to join him. The more he tries to prove himself to her, the more she pushes him away.
Paxtyn has spent a lifetime keeping her secret hidden from the world, but now, she must confront these deadly visions head on. When a string of murders brings her into New Orleans, she must come to terms with her personal demons and use her gift to communicate with spirits to discover who has ended their lives.
I'm going to attempt a Redd's review with this book. No facts. Just feelings. Here goes....
I liked Paxton right from the start. What might have cinched it would be that no matter how devastatingly sexy a man might be, if he insults her pub, he best get to stepping. Tate though... God help him. Who asks for a favor like that? Guy's got crazy nerve. But hey, when you've got a friend like Pax who will apparently do anything for you, what don't you ask? The man is anything but stupid, and you can't find fault in his protectiveness of sweet, gifted Paxton.
Knox and Pax. Two characters who just ride your skin because they can't seem to get it together for the longest time. I love how the author allowed for the similarities of their names. It goes to the randomness of life and actually promotes a sense of possibility to the truth of the story. As does the fact that they, two strangers, couldn't read each other even if you pulled out a sharpie and spelled it out in block lettering upon their skin. Oh well, field trip!
There were so many facets that I did enjoy, and one or two I could have passed on. I can't turn away a good brotherhood though. The band of Seekers are great and even Tate proved a worthy brother for Pax... in the strangest way possible. That ceremony knocked me for a serious loop. 4 out of 5 stars.
So I didn't pull it off exactly like Redd, but hell, she's Redd. A way of words and a charm all her own over at The Unbroken Wyld.
