Being the fifth book in a series, you will enjoy this one more if you have read some of the others first, but that said, it can be an fun read on its own since the author gives you plenty of background within the story. It is set on a distant world in the future, cut off from the home world of Earth, where psychic powers are commonplace.

You get to know the characters and like them right away; you get involved with their good times and their problems and you care about them. Sierra is from a wealthy family and struggling to find her role in life, feeling like she has failed at everything she's tried, she is working for a cheesy tabloid newspaper. John Fontana is a wealthy Guild boss with no family status, having been born a bastard, which is practically unheard of on the planet, Harmony. It's a perfect match...

As always, Jayne keeps the story going with lots of action, a bit of death and destruction, peppered with kidnappings and close calls--but with all that, the story is light and fast. There's plenty of romance, just enough hot moments, and an abundance of comic relief provided by Sierra's little "dust bunny" fur-ball named Elvis, whose preferred costume is a sequined cape and dark glasses.

Jayne makes a reference in the book to another of her series, The Arcane Society, having Sierra's family be future descendants of the Society.
