A chance dart throw lands her in Quicksilver, an off-the-map place with a big problem - people are dying, and word is, it's supernatural.

After reading "Underneath" - and loving it - I was more than eager to read this new novel and I have to say that I loved it and it's a shame I didn't read it sooner.
The story revolves around Vale , a 24-year-old girl from US, who -when the book starts - has agreed to move overseas to England and take on a job that is both weird and potentially dangerous.

This is a keeper. To take out and read when u just need some feel good and emotional book. Yes there are sad parts and mystery and crying. But the love actually feels real. There was a couple of lines that had me hoping for that kind of love for my daughter. Well she had it but her boyfriend died right before he was to propose. So hopefully she gets a second chance at that.

I'm not sure if there is going to be another book or not, but I would love to learn more about her powers! It seems like she can do everything. She really is "all purpose", I thought that was hilarious.

The only donwside to me was that although there was action, I wasn't on the edge of my seat trying to figure out what would happen next. And the big climax came in the middle-ish of the b ...more

Heather Marie Adkins loves magick and words, but not necessarily in that order. She can often be found wrangling chickens in her backyard, pulling weeds from her herb garden, and saving field mice from her cats—when she isn’t plotting her eventual move to Ireland.
Heather is the author of numerous published titles including The Temple and Abigail. She lives in north-central Kentucky with a house f...more
