|The Damask Circle is an organisation that is made up of
people with supernatural talents that fight supernatural evil. Jon Barnett is hawk shape
shifter who is investigating the disappearance of sixteen teenagers, some of whose bodies
have been discovered drained of blood. When hes shot and left for dead, he appears
to Maddie Smith in several dreams, asking for her help. Maddie is a clairvoyant fire
starter who has never accepted her gifts and, being thought crazy by her family, has
retreated from the world. She ignores Jon until her nephew vanishes and she needs
Jons help to find him.
Though I never figured out who the first panther was, I
enjoyed the story. This book has Keri Arthurs slow build up to the adventure and
action, then its nonstop excitement. The story has the classic man/woman romantic tension,
with the hero saving the day. A light, entertaining read, Im looking forward to the
next in the series.
