"Yippie Ky-A"

Too dangerous for regular prisons, criminals found possessing the Cleaven Gene (the gene that allows for paranormal abilities) are locked away onto large prison ships that coast up and down the wide dark river. As a reformed prisoner, Amber doesn't trust herself back on land so she has opted to remain on ship, using her ability to feel other people's emotions in her job as prison counselor. Until the nightmare from her past gets himself on board.

CRASH INTO DARKNESS is a thoroughly unique story featuring two tortured people who barely trust themselves, yet are forced to rely completely on each other in order to survive. Nor are they given time for a gradual decision to trust because there is no possibility to hide darkest doubts, fears, and attractions from each other since Amber and Jaden (sexy name for a dynamic character) both carry the Cleaven Gene, one reads thoughts and the other reads emotions. It's a real treat to get up close and personal within the raw and exposed tangle of their emotions that comes at them as fast-paced as the surrounding storyline.

Strong and gripping, this has all the action of a Bruce Willis Die-hard movie where the hero and heroine sneak around the ship in a life or death game of hide and seek, while they try to sabotage the bad guy's plan without getting themselves killed. Throw in a little paranormal elements with Cleaven Gene abilities running rampant and pass me the popcorn (buttered please) because CRASH INTO DARKNESS has enough thrills and OOOhs to read like I'm watching it on the big screen.

A PNR Reviewers’ Top Pick - February 2009

Amber has no reason to leave the daily turmoil of life aboard a prison ship, created to house those with the violent Cleaven gene. Though now rehabilitated, she has chosen to stay and counsel the inmates who struggle to come to terms with their imprisonment. Possessing extraordinary gifts - an ability to assess situations with perfect clarity and to feel the emotions of others - her skills are in great demand in the volatile environment of the ship.

Jaden, also rehabilitated and with the special gift of mind reading, ploughs the seas on board the boat that delivers supplies and prisoners to and from the ship.

Amber and Jaden are thrown together when the prisoners rebel and an explosion breaches the hull of the ship during a storm. Together they battle the elements, a new, cold-eyed prisoner who has Amber in his sights and their traumatic pasts which sent them to the ship in the first place.
