Book Blurb:

Someone wants Skye Hunter’s son and they’re willing to kill her or anyone else to get to him. On the run for her life, she is forced to turn to the only person who can help her—a complete stranger with a shared past—David Bishop, a renowned illusionist.

David’s life is also an illusion, built of smoke and little else. He meets Skye, a woman filled with passion and conviction, and the pain he sees in her eyes is a mirror to his own soul. But when he realizes she has the same strange, telekinetic phenomenon inside her body that he does, he is forced to question his life, his childhood and the father who raised him. Can these two lost souls uncover the mystery behind their powers and save Skye’s son and themselves in the process?

My Review:

This novel is intense right from the very 1st page. The suspense holds up right to the very end. As a reader you become so immersed in this novel that you can’t imagine life outside of it.

Thomson’s writing is spot on with this novel. She backs up her solid and intriguing storyline with impeccable writing. She uses words to illustrate what she wants you to see, rather than telling you about it. Everything is laid out in such a manner that you are moving further and further towards a brilliant conclusion. That said, everything happens naturally. Although the romance in this novel is a bit of a whirlwind, nothing is forced. The characters are brought together in a suspenseful encounter that you can’t get out of your head.

You become completely attached to the main characters. The characters were well developed in such a natural manner that they seem like people you met and live with. You get to know the characters in such a way that you laugh with them, cry with them, and fear for them. I felt my heart actually break for the characters at one point. It was out of this world.

Thomson merges reality with the supernatural to create this phenomenal novel. It is one that you pick up and can’t put down. It was absolutely phenomenal.
