“This strike you as a particularly wise idea, brother?” Manny asked under his breath. “Striking a deal with vampires?”

Black gave him a look. “No. But all my other ideas were worse.”

A coup is underway.

That coup threatens the entire United States–possibly the whole of the human race.

Psychic detective, Quentin Black, has no idea who’s behind it, what their goal is, or what they want with him. After the funeral of one of his oldest friends, he finds himself on the run from the very people he used to work for in the Pentagon.

With his wife, Miri, he’s forced to flee the country, then to seek allies in the most unlikely of quarters to try and clear his name.

Together, they return to the center of the conspiracy, Washington D.C., and face the architect of what might be a terrifying new world.

Will Black be able to stop history from repeating itself in the worst way imaginable?

Where to start?

There is so much going on in this book, and I am so grateful that I have read the Bridge & Sword series to understand the Old Earth back story.

That said, I was exceptionally worried about what extra torture the author would visit on Black and Miriam, and by extension, on me, the reader. I have become so invested in their HEA (if we ever see it) that each volume brings agonies of concern.

This volume is no different. And whilst this did not play out as I expected, at all, it has nevertheless brought an extra dimension of tension to the narrative.

Somewhat perversely, I can’t wait to read more!

I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.

About the author

I’m a USA Today bestselling author of sexy, apocalyptic and cyberpunk-y paranormal mystery, alternate history, urban fantasy & supernatural suspense, often with a metaphysical bent.

While it might seem like I have a (perhaps overly?) friendly relationship with my dark side, if you read my stuff, you’ll discover pretty quick that, at base and in my heart, I’m a big, sappy, pie in the sky idealist, and that I always want the light to win, love to win, the good guys to win, compassion to win, the bad guys to be redeemed or at least to find love…even if they have to crawl through mud and blood and crazy sex and betrayal and broken fingernails to get there.

Of course, not all of them make it…but I always hope that they will.

Other stuff: I have a background in journalism and political history, and a Master’s degree in the latter. I love to travel and to interact with different cultures and histories and I’ve traveled a fair bit (although never enough – there are always new places to see!).  I’ve also lived a lot of different places, including all over the United States where I was born, as well as stints in Europe, Australia and now Asia, including a few years in India and now a few in Thailand.

Currently, I live and work full-time as a writer in Bangkok, Thailand, where I have a beautiful view of a Buddhist wat right out the window while I write.
