From Good Reads.com: Max Shannon is a good cop, one of the best in New York Enforcement. Born with a natural shield that protects him against Psy mental invasions, he knows he has little chance of advancement within the Psy- dominated power structure. The last case he expects to be assigned to is that of a murderer targeting a Psy Councilor’s closest advisors. And the last woman he expects to compel him in the most sensual of ways is a Psy on the verge of catastrophic mental fracture.
Comments: This book, along with the previous one, I’d been apprehensive about because it didn’t feature a Changeling hero or heroine. Happily, it turns out that it wasn’t a deal-breaker and I was able to enjoy the book as much as the others.
I liked that Max was just an ordinary guy, who happened to have natural shields. There were a few times I thought the maybe he’d find out he was one of the Forgotten because he didn’t know much about his father. I thought the J-Psy were an interesting group. I’m surprised the author had Sophia tell us how the Net views her instead of showing us how Sophia learned about it herself — like Faith and the NetMind.
Kaleb Krycheck, such an enigma. A little more revealed and I still don’t know what to make of him. And Nikita surprised me, too, in this book.
Looking forward to the next book.
