Canyons of Night: Book Three of the Looking Glass Trilogy Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The island of Rainshadow is home to the mysterious, privately-owned woods known only as the Preserve. Now, after fifteen years away, both Charlotte Enright and her teen crush, Slade Attridge, have returned. But will their psi talents and Slade's dust bunny companion be enough to keep them from getting drawn into the darkness at the heart of the Preserve?

Review:

"Though billed as SF, the flimsy conclusion of the Looking Glass trilogy (after April 2011's Quicksilver, bylined Amanda Quick) reads more like paranormal romantic suspense. Charlotte Knight's aura-reading psi talent is of such limited use that she runs an antiques shop on the island of Rainshadow, an ostensibly far future town on a distant planet that might as well be present-day Nantucket. When an aggressive ex-client winds up dead in Charlotte's shop, she and her longtime crush, Slade Attridge, whose own psychic powers have been crippled by trauma, are drawn into a murder investigation as well as an intense mutual attraction. Castle bewilderingly downplays the romance, her usual strength, to focus on the weak murder mystery and nonexistent world-building. The tale may appeal to dedicated Arcane Society series fans, but will disappoint those expecting even minimally competent science fiction. (Sept.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
