I have had this book for awhile and finally decided to read it. I normally like Hooper's books, but this book wasn't as good as I had heard it was. I think the ending was a little far-fetched and it wasn't a book that I wanted to just keep reading and reading. It took me awhile to finish because I just wasn't that in to it.
Cassie is a psychic who is hiding from her past and her abilities. However, when a serial killer victimizes the small town in which she has tried to find peace she feels a moral obligation to help local law enforcement in their hunt for the killer.
This book was a little cheesy but enjoyable. From the description I expected a nail-biting thriller, but instead the book focused more on the characters and a developing romance between Cassie and the local judge. The last quarter of the book had a respectable amount of suspense, and a surprise (though perhaps implausible) ending.
The best part of this book was Cassie, the brave but vulnerable protagonist. From the previews of the next two books in the trilogy it appears that she will not be a part of the upcoming stories, which is a shame... she was the best thing about the first one.
Weird premise but very readable.
Kept me guessing until the last chapter or two - and I'm good at figuring them out!This is the first in the Trilogy of Shadows. It is the first of three sets of trilogies involving Noah Bishop. (That's how many as of summer of '06.) Stealing - Hiding - Out : that's the order. However, they are each stand alone, with the only tie being Noah Bishop. The three books total take place within a year of each other. Check out her website; that explains alot.
Loved, Loved, Loved this book. I have the next few books in this series and if it weren't already after 1 am, I have been up since 5 am and I just read nearly 400 pages of this book, I would be picking up the next book in this series. Outstanding!
