"A wonderful romantic fantasy"
Ghostalker and dreamwalker Nyssa searches for information
to fill the vast gaps of what she knows about her past.
Nyssa is almost obsessed with finding out who she is and
what her connection to hobgoblin Qasim is.
Cop Jack Frost becomes concerned with Nyssa's probe
reaching the attention of those who would use and abuse her
or others who will kill her. To keep her safe from the FBI
and goblin goons, he dispatches the entity Abrial, but
initially she refuses his help. That changes as the Feds
and the goblins begin to give chase. Travelers on the run
with no hope of dispatching a courier to Jack, the two
outsiders Nyssa and Abrial fall in love. However, their
relationship means new groups who would not want a merger
between a ghostalking dreamwalker and a night entity for
fear of what the next generation will bring.
The latest walk on the "Wildside" is a wonderful romantic
fantasy that adds new elements that brilliantly fit and
enhance the existing Jackson mythos. The action-packed
story line is filled with mythological creatures, who along
side of government agencies make Wildside seem real.
However, the crucial component that invigorates STILL LIFE
is the love subplot between two souls who know they should
not, but could not prevent their feelings from showing even
with danger mounting from seemingly everywhere.
