"entertaining supernatural thriller"
Over three years ago Antonio the Mafioso vampire killed
his parents who were in the way when he went to abduct
Cassandra Palmer so that he could control her clairvoyance
skills. She escaped and felt relatively safe until now
when she reads her obit on her computer screen. Deciding
not to wait for her death on Atlanta's Peachtree Street,
Cass races home to insure her roommate Tomas is safe.
However vampires attack both of them. They survive the
assault with help from some of Cass' more spirited friends
and it helps that Tomas is a vampire too.
Tomas escorts Cassie to the Metaphysical Alliance for
Greater Cooperation (MAGIC) headquarters for a who's who
of supernatural and mythological species. She pleads with
the vampiric Senate for protection against avenging
literally blood-thirsty hitman; instead the senators
demand much more unsafe escapades from her. Cass is
beginning to comprehend for some unknown reason she is the
center of a supernatural war. As Cassie begins to
understand the scope of her power, she finds herself
attracted to Senator Mircea, but fears he just wants to
make her dinner not take her to dinner.
TOUCH THE DARK is an entertaining supernatural thriller
starring a bewildered beleaguered brave woman struggling
to survive in a world that makes no sense to her, which is
saying a lot since she regularly speaks with ghosts. The
action-packed story line never slows down for a nano
second so wear the seat belts and set some time as this is
a one read thriller. The creatures of the dark seem
genuine whether they are vampire, ghost, or a were-species
and the senate is a fascinating mix of historical and
literary figures while a seemingly bittersweet star-
crossed romance augments a strong tale that will bring
much acclaim to Karen Chance.
