disappearanceFor as long as she can remember twenty year old Finley Montgomery has been able to see into the future She dreams about events before they occur and sees beyond the physical wo Wow Where to begin For those of you who have followed all her series and other books involving The Hollows this one is a BIG deal No spoilers here but there is major character and plot development I ve read almost all of Lisa Unger s books I was first hooked when I picked up a copy of Fragile in the BN clearance section and she uickly became one of my top 10 authors to read after devouring Beautiful Lies Sliver of Truth Black Out Die For You I ve read all her other books as well save for her Whispers novellas which I now realize is a huge mistake that I must remedy immediately it really could have made my experience with this book just that extra bit perfect Millions of spiritual creatures walk the earthUnseen both when we wake and when we sleep John Milton Paradise LostIn this book which some would consider Book 3 in The Hollows series we are reunited with Jones Cooper former detective with Hollows PD and now freelance private investigator and Eloise Montgomery psychic and assistant to Jones Cooper in solving multiple past cases in The Hollows but we are also introduced to a new character Finley Montgomery who is Eloise s granddaughter She has come to live with Eloise in an attempt to learn how to control her own psychic powers if you will In an attempt to not rehash the book s plot blurb Finley discovers an overwhelming sound Sueak Clink that will not leave her alone She discovers this one is calling her not Eloise to come and solve the mystery with Jones The girl was of this place she belonged here than she knew She was unpredictable and wild powerful foolish stubborn like many children The Hollows had known I loved loved LOVED this character Finley She was a spitfire tatted and wild with a uiet streak that works in conjunction with her ultimate stubbornness This girl isn t going to be pushed into doing anything she doesn t want to at least in the physical world She has regular guests as I like to call them that she sees and hears daily but also new ones that pop up along the way I also loved the relationship between her and boyfriend ish Rainer I could picture them easily in my mind as if watching a movie and was a little sad to leave them when the book ended Our choices even the small ones all have conseuences This book was intense It was what I would consider genre bending yes there are paranormal elements but it was just as solid as any book I would read in the crimethriller genre I don t typically read supernatural books but Lisa s have always felt so real that I can t help but get caught up in them I can see why some threw in the Horror element as the content was a bit disturbing but in a very realistic way think Karin Slaughter in some of her graphic contentviolence Very little sexual content in this one which I was very pleased with as this book needed the continual flow of the story without that extra distraction The woods are lovely dark and deepBut I have promises to keepAnd miles to go before I sleep Robert Frost Miles to GoI know I said no spoilers and I won t spoil but I have to warn you there are some big shocks at the ending regarding the direction of the series I was so engrossed that I stayed up well past midnight finishing and read 70% of the book in one sitting because I just couldn t put it down There are some seriously emotional moments but I m not mad I felt they were for the bettering of the story and needed to happen Big twists and turns guys this is one of those stories that all the clues are in front of you from well near the beginning and its fun trying to piece them together after the big revelation of whodunit If you are a fan of the series PLEASE don t miss this book Its extremely crucial and addictive I m assuming there will be a follow up of some sort PLEASE LISA DON T LET ME DOWN from the ending I think we are just getting to know Finley in what will turn into a long exciting adventure Highly recommended Go pre order buy it reuest it at your library get
