In My Own Words:
I've been reading avidly for over 40 years - at least a book a day at the moment. Science fiction, fantasy and romance mainly. All time favourite at the moment probably The Morgaine Saga by CJ Cherryh.

Third addition is singing. I currently sing in a symphony chorus, a chamber cho… Read more

Sins & Shadows: A Shadows Inquiries Novel by Lyn Benedict
1 of 2 people found the following review helpful
Sylvie Lightner has had enough death and destruction and is trying to close her paranormal detective agency 'Shadows Inquiries'. Unfortunately she has a new client who is so powerful (a god) that she is coerced into investigating for him. Unfortunately the people she contacts during the investigation seem to end up mostly dead or damaged. Interesting urban world, interesting characters, death and destruction, some romance but it still didn't rate 4 stars. I suspect the problem for me is that the emotional impact wasn't dark enough for the plot.

Christine Feehan delivers a good story in the 'Dark' series. - 4 stars for her. If you're hooked on the dark series, buy the book for that. If not, check out the Dark series instead.

I didn't like either of the others much - 2 stars each for them. One is a hero giving up the woman he loves for her own sake - over and over again..

I read the second in the series first and enjoyed it very much. That's about Neva's sister investigating crimes and dealing with a man out of her past. I was hoping for a plot more focussed on Neva's telepathy/empathy and didn't get it. My problem with it is that the hero attempts to control the heroine through sex which just pushes my buttons. Otherwise it was an OK read.
