I really liked this. I would give it four and a half stars if I could. Definitely one of the better thrillers I have read. I like how I could not predict the murderer(s) and that the ending was not neatly tied up with all the characters riding off into the sunset with new romances, like in most Mira books. The psychic references made it interesting, but were not overdone. One of the best Mira books I've read, and I'm glad I picked it up. Fast paced, and it really held my interest well.

plot was pretty predictable, but it's written in such a convincingly scary manner, that i was hooked and anxious through the entire book. this book made me realize i like to read thrillers much more than i like to watch thrillers. easier to skim through the scary and still get the point than it is with the fast forward button.

This was an interesting look at psychic abilities, obsession, and the murders that result from it. I enjoyed the story, although there seemed to be some unnecessary stabs at developing characters just so some of the plot lines could be tied together. I liked the mythological basis and the cultural tidbits that were thrown in.
