3.5 stars. So far in this series the main protagonists have been as much hunters as hunted, fighting back against the bad guys who want to kidnap Anomalies and use them for evil deeds. This one is a little different. Partly because it’s set on Haven, the paradise island where anomalies live in secret, but mostly because of Cate and Gage.

Cate was a nice teacher of young children until she was stolen away and forced to use her anomaly powers. All her life she’s resisted them because she’s a Soul Stealer, and once she gets a taste for killing it quickly becomes an addiction. But she doesn’t want to be a killer, she just wants to go back home and be an ordinary woman again. Since that’s looking less and less likely to happen, she’s stuck on Haven trying to come to terms with the monster inside her.

Luckily for her Gage is on hand to help. The doctor is sexy and caring, but also has a dark past of his own. They’re both a little wounded by life and more than a touch vulnerable, but Gage has a smart brain to help him out and Cate can always call on her powers if she needs to. They might not be as feisty or as strong as the previous couples in this series, but they fit together beautifully as they fight to work out what makes Cate so special and how to keep her safe.

There’s less action in this book than the previous tales and a lot more soul-searching, but it’s still a good, quick read with a satisfying romance. A good addition to the series, even if it did leave me uncertain about how the next and final story will work. I’m definitely curious to find out, though.
