A psychic serial killer is on the loose and psychic FBI agents are trying to prove that Samuel, a religious cult leader, is the culprit. This book has lots of ESP elements - clairvoyants, telepathics, psychics - to name a few.
Not as good as the first book but worth reading for the spectacular ending. This is listed as a trilogy but Blood Sins ended like it was the conclusion so I'm not sure where a third book would be coming from.
Since the books decription is quite correct I don't even want to spoil anything of the plot to the reader.
Blood Sins is the continuation of Blood Dreams in which Tessa Gray was first discovered as being a psychic. I didn't read Blood Dreams but listened to the audiobook which made it harder for me to recollect the happenings in the first novel. Despite of the authors note on her webpage that the trilogy can be read singlewise I wouldn't recommend it. Especially not when unfamiliar with the characters.
For me the book didn't hold a lot of surprises because over time I've become familiar to Hooper's writing style and her book concept. This book is no exception. The end comes fast, spectacular but is quite short. I certainly missed the investigation part in this one.
However, considered that I literally flew through the books and finished it on one day does mean is wasn't boring at all. I liked it and will be glad to get all questions answered with the third book.
Tessa Gray has agreed to be bait for a serial killer that the SCU and Noah Bishop suspects is about to commit murder on a large scale. The killer has a cult following in a fortified compound in the mountains of North Carolina, and most of the towns people are either part of the cult, or uncaring of the recent unexplained deaths in their area. Tessa has to decide whether she can trust the local chief of police, Sawyer Cavenaugh, with her life. The book is OK. I have read the other books in this series, and am becoming tired of the same discussions in each book about paranormal powers and the way the "universe" allows them to be used. IMHO, this uses space / time that should have been devoted to the plot and the characters. There are some questions left over, that the author acknowledges, but really doesn't answer.
This was a very good SCU book which kept me guessing the whole novel. Surprises toward the ending completed the story just right.
Kay Hooper never misses a beat. Her books are hard to put down. "Blood Sins" delivers another creepy villain, even more so this time because of his role as a cult leader.
