Publisher's Summary

Sergeant Duncan O'Conner has seen it all before. Beautiful erotic dancer murdered at home, no suspect, no motive. But there's one clue: She's missing her heart. It's enough to make the hard-bitten Kansas City cop enlist the help of a necro - one of the dead-channeling freaks who live in the domed city of nearby Valhalla. It's a long shot, but desperate crimes call for desperate measures. Unlike the other "high-bloods" in Valhalla, Callie Brown considers her abilities a gift, not a curse. But when she reads the dancer's final thoughts, she senses a powerful presence blocking her vision. This is no ordinary homicide. This is the work of a legendary necromancer who controls souls. A ravenous force that will put Callie's skills to the test, O'Conner's career at risk, and both their hearts on the line...literally.

Well Ms Ivy certainly delivers in this, her new 'The Sentinels' series and, as she skilfully builds a whole new world, populates it with fascinating and interesting characters and beautifully weaves a romantic love story throughout it, you will be taken on a thrilling magical journey of discovery.

There are two species - the Highbloods who are The Sentinels all gifted with differing paranormal powers and live in Valhalla but they're feared and disliked by many of the Humans (called Norm's) and are often shunned and called Freaks but, when needed, the Highbloods will happily come to the aide of the Humans despite all the insults and prejudices but always with a Bodyguard.

The plot starts off slowly when a dead body is found without a heart Duncan, an arrogant, jaded but thoughtful, sexy, gorgeous Kansas City Detective calls for help from Callie, a confident Highblood whose ability is that she can link to the dead and see their final moments, but things don't go the way they should this time. Duncan has worked with Callie before and is very attracted to her but, because of the inter-species prejudices, Callie tries to stay aloof…… yeah right remember the thoughtful, sexy, gorgeous description - exactly - no hope. Then the storyline picks up speed as the dead are walking again and the race is on to find out who, what and why someone's pulling the strings.

This fascinating and entertaining book, which is flawlessly narrated, captures your imagination, gifts you with great characters who are involved in the action, suspense, surprises, murder, gore, there's an evil Witch and an even more deadly Necromancer wanting world domination but there's also passion, romance, sex, and the H/H, and the secondary characters, have great chemistry together as they fight to save the world…. and their lives.

Worth a credit? For any Alexandra Ivy fan or paranormal romance lover this has to be added to your basket and listened to asap - so YES, IMHO, it's tick, tick and tick which makes it definitely creditworthy.

- CAROLYN "I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again"


I don't have much time to write reviews but I couldn't miss telling you how much I loved this book! It may have been helped by the talented Mr. Frangione but this seemed so much like a book by JR Ward. THe story was great! I can't wait to see where it leads us! I don't want to give anything away but if you have histories like mine don't let this great read pass you by...
