This book is another episode in Kelley Armstrong's acclaimed "Women of the Otherworld Series" and features Jaime Vegas, a necromancer TV star whose stardom might be waning as she approaches middle age. When given the chance for a shot at a new TV pilot, staying in a house with two other spiritualists and trying to find out what happened to the house's former owner, Jaime takes the opportunity, not realizing that more has gone on in the house than anyone yet knows.
Jaime finds that there are more spirits present than the other spiritualists realize - spirits that can't seem to speak directly to Jaime, as others can, but who let her know they are there. She decides it's important to find out who they are and enlists Jeremy, Alpha of the wolf pack and someone she's interested in, to help her. Jaime also seems to go off half-cocked on her own much of the time and has to be rescued by various spirits as well as witches and other people. But she and Jeremy begin to uncover a very sinister series of events which involve child sacrifice and people discovering powers that they really shouldn't have.
Many characters in Armstrong's previous novels appear in this one including Hope Adams, the heroine of the next novel, Personal Demon. However, it isn't necessary to have read the others in the series to follow events in this book. Fans of Armstrong will no doubt enjoy the book, but at times it's rather aimless, the background story of the TV show seems incompletely drawn, and the whole plot
isn't as tight as the author can write. It is, however, a good read with an interesting angle on the challenges for an older woman who seeks to find a new place in the world as her career is ending.
