Nell Ingram has always known she was different. Since she was a child, she’s been able to feel and channel ancient powers from deep within the earth. When she met Jane Yellowrock, her entire life changed, and she was recruited into PsyLED—the Homeland Security division that polices paranormals. But now her newly formed unit is about to take on its toughest case yet.
A powerful senator barely survives an assassination attempt that leaves many others dead—and the house he was visiting burns to the ground. Invisible to security cameras, the assassin literally disappears, and Nell’s team is called in. As they track a killer they know is more—or less—than human, they unravel a web of dark intrigue and malevolent motives that tests them to their limits and beyond.
Flame in the Dark by Faith Hunter
Total. Book. Hangover. I immediately started this entire series all over again because I just can not get enough of Hunter’s Soulwood characters. Yes, I did re-read Flame in the Dark and I’m sure I will be re-reading it again! It was that good!
Nell raised as a “churchwoman” and now a probie member of the SciLED team is using her cunning and ability to see past the norm to solve complex crimes. I love how she uses her churchwoman speak to her advantage and carefully conceals her genius intelligence. Hunter writes characters that evolve right before our eyes and Nell is one of my favorites.
Flame in the Dark blends an urban fantasy, suspense thriller, and paranormal romance all in one and I absolutely LOVED IT.
I received this ARC copy of Flame in the Dark from Berkley Publishing Group - Ace. This is my honest and voluntary review. Flame in the Dark is set for publication Dec. 5, 2017.
