REVIEW: The Reunited by Shiloh WalkerMonday, February 11, 2013 1:00
Shiloh Walker is completely amazing me with this FBI Psychics series of hers. Each book is better than the last, but I have a feeling it’s going to take quite a bit more imagination for her to trump Joss Crawford and his amazing ability in this latest book.
Joss refers to himself as a mirror. He can take on other psychics’ powers as his own, retaining that uniqueness until the next time he’s mind-fucked. And believe him, it is a mind-fuck he goes through for each new job Taylor Jones, head of their unit, calls him in for. This latest assignment comes when Joss is scheduled for some downtime, something he desperately needs and has been looking forward to. But when he discovers it’s fourteen-year-old Jillian, Taige and Cullen’s daughter, who is a powerful psychic and he discovers just what the girl has been handling all on her own, Joss is all in to take down one of the biggest scum of the century.
It’s been two years since Drucella has been undercover to take down the evil slaver Patrick Whitmore – her fiance. She’ll do what it takes to free the girls he currently is holding prisoner to be sold and to give some justice to those whom freedom is too late for. Even if she has to marry the bastard to do it. Shielding herself from him is becoming more difficult, especially when she dreams such bizarre things that mean nothing to her and a man she’s never met. But yet…he’s familiar to her. Then the incredible happens when she comes face to face with a man who inspires trust, lust, desire, and so much more. But she can’t indulge in anything outside of her mission. The girls who are frightened and hurt, who have no future without her deserve more.
As Joss tries to acclimate to Jillian’s abilities, he suddenly has more than all that power and his assignment crowding inside his head. He’s finally found her, the woman who he’s waited for all his life, and then some. But Dru doesn’t remember him, so it’s up to him to make sure she does remember. However, it all goes to hell when they’re introduced to each other by none other than the man they’re both after. Dru wants the whole thing over with so she can return to England, get back to her life since the one she thought she might have now is no longer an option. Joss wants it all over with so he and Dru can talk, straighten this whole mess out. But they both have to survive what’s coming next.
And all of this is just brushing the surface of this book. Both Joss and Dru have so much to be cautious about during their missions, including their psychic powers, then add the re-emergence of their past life together, the raging desire to bring Patrick and his network down, this story never stops – even when you think the end has finally come. We get caught up with characters from the past two books and we meet a few new folks who will feature prominently in future books. This series is intense, suspenseful, imaginative, and one of the best I’ve read recently. Shiloh Walker is at her best with this series, and I thought she’d have a heck of time doing better than her Ash, Kentucky trilogy this darned quickly. Shows you what I know.
AN ETERNAL DESIRE
With his strong psychic ability, FBI Agent Joss Crawford longs for the woman he loved in a past life. But after years of searching, a new case is drawing him into the last place heâ€™d ever want to find her: an underground slave ring. Going undercover to infiltrate the network, he meets Drucella Chapmanâ€”the mastermindâ€™s fiancĂ©e. Joss has every reason to believe sheâ€™s evil. So why is he irresistibly drawn to her?
A DANGEROUS GAME
Drucella has made it her personal mission to bring the slave ring down. But the sadistic ring leader is even more careful than he is cruel. In order to gain information, Dru has had to get close to the very man she wishes to kill, using her gift to read his memories bit by bit. Sheâ€™d do anything to finish the job, but agreeing to marry him may have been a step too farâ€”even for her.
A FATEFUL ENCOUNTER
Though Joss and Dru are both undercover, nothing can disguise the sense of dĂ©jĂ vu they experience when they meet. Neither can afford to be distracted from the mission at hand, but perhaps their reunion is exactly what this mission needsâ€¦
