REVIEW

"This Book Delivers"

I haven't read a book by Marjorie M. Liu that I didn't like. Actually, love, would be more appropriate. Ms. Liu's Dirk and Steele Romances deliver against impossible odds, creative and fascinating paranormal dilemmas with a tortured hero and an equally haunted and determined heroine— she hits the nail every time.

These 300 plus page thrillers are so fast paced that they usually span a mere few days for the characters involved. No lagging moments for them, or us readers, making it difficult to find places to put the book down and catch a breath.

The Last Twilight is no disappointment. The Dirk and Steele Agency is a front for keeping things safe in the Supernatural Realm, protecting the world from crises innocent mortals know nothing about. Their agents consist of telepaths, empaths, healers, shape-shifters, and others with paranormal gifts that we don't even have a name for.

We met Amiri, the Cheetah shape-shifter, in Shadow Touch as a prisoner being tortured and experimented upon by the evil Consortium. In this book (which can stand totally on its own, although it's fun to see familiar agents from Dirk and Steele pop in) Amiri takes center stage as he reluctantly accepts the assignment to return to his homeland of Africa and retrieve and protect Dr. Rikki Kinn, virus hunter, unknowing that the willful doctor has a painful past of her own and a spirit that resonates with his, and an even bigger secret that the Consortium is willing to pile up a huge body count in its wake to possess.

I enthusiastically and wholeheartedly recommend The Last Twilight as a you-gotta-read-this-one. Then again, I'll say the same for anything this author writes. If you see any book with Marjorie M. Liu's name on it, snatch it up.

SUMMARY

**A PNR Reviewer Top Pick**

Doctor Rikki Kinn is a virus hunter - one of the best - working in the Congo for the CDC. But when mercenaries attempt to kidnap her in order to prevent an investigation into a new and deadly plague, her boss calls in a favor from the men at Dirk & Steele...

Africa is Amiri's home, where he was raised to race as a cheetah, to wake with the sun. It is also a land of lingering nightmare, where he was kidnapped and experimented upon. Now, against his better judgment, Amiri has been asked to return to his homeland by his colleagues in Dirk & Steele - men who are friends and brothers, who like himself are more than human.

He must protect a woman who is the target of murderers, who has unwittingly involved herself in a conflict that threatens not only the lives of millions, but Amiri's own soul...and his heart.
