A marvellously funny, sexy tale!!,
This review is from: Amaryllis (Mass Market Paperback)
Since they will be repackaging two from this series under the title of Harmony soon, I got these out and decided to reread them. And found I enjoyed them more the second time around. This is some of JAK's best writing of late. I had been a wee tad disappointed in her last couple HBs and her Amanda Quicks. She seems to have polished her diamond too much and lost some of the spontaneity that was her trademark. But Amaryllis, Zinnia and Orchid, and the off world antics, are her at top form and if fans of JAK has missed these, them do grab them when they come out as Harmony 2 in 1 package.
In this off world tale, Amaryllis Lark is a private detective, but she is also a prism. In the Colony of from Old Earth, people evolved with two talents: either they were a prism or a psychic. The prisms serve to increase the power of the psychics by channelling their powers through them and amplifying it. Even the strongest of psychics needs a prism, for without them they cannot control and maintain their powers.
Lucas Trent the founder of Lodestar hires her for her prism talents. He is an off the chart psychic who need the talent of a prism of his level. If psychic and prism are not of matched talents, the psychic can burn out the prism. And prisms that are as strong as Amaryllis are rare. In order to foil nasty cooperate todos, they are forced to join talents...and more!!
A super, brilliant work from the fine craft of JAK.
Soon be to re-released under a 2 for 1 reprint called Harmony. These had been hard to come by at times, so if you missed them I highly recommend snatching it up!!
