Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!
“Mad, bad and dangerous to know.”
Olivia Parr doesn’t believe her ability to see auras is a gift. It hasn’t exactly done her any favours. Quite the opposite, in fact. Having become something of a loner, she tries to avoid people and the glow surrounding them, preferring to view life through the lens of a camera, where she can’t see those telltale colours.
But when a rare visit to a theatre ends in death and bloodshed, Olivia’s life is about to become considerably more complicated.
During the mayhem, one man stands out, and not just because he seems oblivious to the terrible carnage. The reason? He has no aura.
But everyone has an aura, right?
Except for the dead.
Not only is she fascinated and intrigued by this strange, compelling man, in the aftermath of the tragedy she gains a protector; a man whose aura is deep, dark red – the colour of blood.
What a surprising read this turned out to be! It is a mix of paranormal, mystery, suspense and detective work together with death and passion. Olivia Parr can see the auras of people. Actually, she can’t switch off this ability and it has caused her problems throughout her life so she now tends to avoid people. She is a photographer and journalist – she can’t see auras when looking through her camera. During a rare visit to the theatre she is present during a mass shooting. Fortunately she wasn’t injured though people near her were killed, landing on her. When a man with a very red aura helps he she’s get up again she sees a strange stranger – he has no aura. These two men are about to play significant roles in her life but why and should she trust either of them?
This is a very different and dark story, with a historical character as the main protagonist. The tension mounts as the story progresses though there are some dark humorous moments, too. It is a suspense-filled start to an exciting new series and I look forward to discovering just how it progresses.
I was gifted a copy of this book and this is my honest review after choosing to read it. I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys paranormal suspense with the possibility of romance developing.
