Publisher's Summary

Their name is Raintree. It's more than a last name, more than a notation on a family tree. It's a mark of destiny. Each family member has a special gift, an otherworldly talent. Gideon Raintree, a homicide detective, can harness electricity and talk to ghosts. He will need to wield gifts he's kept hidden to solve his newest case, which involves a relentless serial killer unleashed by the dark Ansara wizards. But first he must deal with his reaction to Hope Malory, his alluring new partner. He'd never planned on love in the midst of battle. With evil lurking at every turn, Gideon and Hope are in a race against time to save their love, their family, and their newly conceived child.

Good sequel

This book is the sequel to "Inferno: Raintree" written by Linda Howard. Plot development and execution in this book was significantly improved from the first book in the series.

Linda Winstead Jones is a long time writer for serial-type books (i.e. Harlequin) and she does it well. The author is slighly disadvantaged that she is writing the second in a series but she didn't create the plot nor did she write the first book in the series. That being said, she did a nice job progessing the plot as well as developing the characters. The heroine was likable and had characteristics of an average person - nothing that was remotely unusual in her actions.

The female reader did a very good job and brought the character to life. My compliant with the male reader was that it was the same from the first book in the series but it was a different character! If you haven't listened to the first book, you wouldn't notice or care. However, most people who purchase this audiobook will have listened to "Raintree" first and noticed this. Not a terrible thing but not a great thing for an audiobook. Us listeners tend to notice things like this and it struck me as odd that the production staff would do this.

I would definately recommend this book and the author. The female reader wasn't familiar to me but I would listen to her again.

2nd of 3

This is the second book of a trilogy written by 3 different authors. The first book, written by my favorite author Linda Howard was dissapointing but this book more than made up for it.

This book has fully developed characters, a great beginning and middle and a wonder cliff-hanger. I can't wait for the third book to come out next month. I also am looking forward to reading more of this author's work.
