Dream Eyes (Dark Legacy #2) By: Jayne Ann Krentz
The death of her friend and mentor, Evelyn Ballinger, brings psychic counselor Gwen Frazier back to the small town of Wilby, Oregon, and brings back memories she would rather forget. Two years earlier, a killer stalked the members of one of Ballinger’s research studies including Gwen. And though she survived while two others didn’t, Gwen knows that Ballinger’s death is related. Sent by a friend to help Gwen, psychic investigator Judson Coppersmith arrives in Wilby barely in control of his own talent and his own life, haunted by urgent dreams. His attraction to Gwen is primal, but there are secrets he must keep to protect himself from surrendering to her completely, even as their investigation draws them into dreamscapes, into decades of deception, and into the paranormal fires of a desire too strong to resist. . . .
Krentz has created such an interesting world with the Arcane and her just plain old psychic series. Its been a while since I’ve read a Dark Legacy book so there was a little catching up to do with the side characters but since the previous characters played such a minor role it wasn’t a big deal.
The mystery was kind of puzzling and while she did give you enough facts to figure it out on your own, I didn’t. I was too caught up in the romance and psychic parts to really pay attention to the subtle clues.
If you aren’t familiar with her books I don’t think this one would be a good place to jump in. At this point she’s developed a language unique to her world and it could be too distracting to new reader. If you’re in to psychic abilities, though, I would highly recommend starting at the beginning cause her books are a real treat.
