“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.”
This is the third book in the Soulwood series. This was my favorite book in this series yet. Nell grows a lot as a character in this book and I really enjoyed some of the revelations she made about her magic.
This was a great investigative urban fantasy and I enjoyed the mystery and plot a lot. There is a self-contained mystery that is solved in this novel but we also see more about Nell’s personal mysteries and that storyline makes more progress as well. I also love how Nell is trying to find her way in the “real-world” while still keeping involved some with her family who are living on church grounds.
I love that this series is introducing other types of paranormals into the mix. It was fun to read about these new types of creatures and I also loved the new types of magic we see here.
Overall this was a wonderful installment in this urban fantasy series. I loved the plot, characters, new creatures, and interesting magic. There is so much that is new and interesting here and I love watching Nell and her PsyLED team deal with it all. I look forward to reading more books in this series.
