3.0 out of 5 stars "The Society" series book 1, 27 Dec. 2010
This review is from: The Society (The Society, Book 1) (Paperback)
When Rowan Price innocently stumbles across an undercover team working for a secret organisation, she finds herself caught up in a paranormal war between the good guys The Society and the bad guys Sigma. Both sides are deeply interested in Rowan as she displays strong paranormal gifts, yet Rowan is interested in only 2 things; getting even with Sigma for killing her father and best friend and getting to know Justin Delgado, the ex brainwashed Sigma agent now working for the Society.

This dark paranormal romance series is clearly a prelude to LS's "Dante Valentine" series; set when psions, although not acknowledged by society, are banding together to use their gifts. I'm sure this author is trying to realistically portray a vulnerable heroine who is out of her depth, but LS over compensates. As a result her leading ladies (disregarding Dante Valentine) are somewhat wishy washy, overwhelmed by their adventures and generally in a state of shock throughout the majority of the plot. Rowan is no exception as she joins the Society. Like other female leads; despite the power she wields, Rowan is predominantly powerless and ignorant until the final chapters. I prefer a bit more oomph to my heroine, especially if she has the power to defend herself and this is sadly lacking in Rowan. That said, the scene is set very nicely for book 2 "Hunter-Healer" and judging by the available synopsis, Rowan becomes a far more formidable character. That plus Delgado's fate leaves me intending to read "Mind-Healer" despite my criticism of the heroine.
