Book Description

31 Dec 2012 Dark Legacy (Book 1)

Within the pages of very rare books, some centuries old, lie the secrets of the paranormal. Abby Radwell's unusual psychic talent has made her an expert in such volumes - and sometimes has taken her into dangerous territory. After a deadly incident in the private library of an obsessive collector, Abby receives a blackmail threat, and rumours swirl that an old alchemical text known as The Key has reappeared on the black market.

Convinced she needs an investigator who can also play bodyguard, she hires Sam Coppersmith, an expert in paranormal crystals and amber. Passion flares immediately between them, though neither entirely trusts the other. But when it comes to dealing with a killer with paranormal talents - and a blackmailer who will stop at nothing to obtain an ancient alchemical code - no one is safe.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very enjoyable, entertaining & unchallenging. 16 Mar 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am a big JAK fan from years back & enjoyed this novel in the same way as a bag of salt and vinegar crisps - nice, worthwhile, if ultimately forgettable. Sometimes, however that's just what I want - something lighter than a Secret McQueen or Suzanne Brockman, and less challenging than an Iain Banks or classic novel.

4.0 out of 5 stars JAK is always fun to read 8 May 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you like JAK's style of writing, this is another book that will deliver. An off-beat couple with their own issues come together to solve a mystery.

I like the fact that the 2 main characters usually "get" one another despite the issues they have.

Good escapist reading on a lazy afternoon.

3.0 out of 5 stars New Series 12 Feb 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I am a big fan of the Author and do not think that this book was awful nor do I regret buying it. The characters in the book are enjoyable and likeable. However the story is a bit slow. The two characters are Sam and Abby. Abby has an affinity for old books and can decipher coded books. Sam is linked to crystals and can generate power through them. In addition Sam's family have a large corporation which is involved in crystals.
In the book someone is trying to find a coded book and Abby is needed by them to both find and decode it. There are several people looking for the book both good and evil and Sam must protect Abby from them.
This is not my favourite of her books to date but I still plan on reading the next in the series to see where it goes.
