Book Description:

One Man, Two Women, Two Gods…who will survive the Trickster’s snare?

Ghostly images materialize in Nina Weaver’s photos. Goons try to kidnap her. When her photographs are stolen and her best friend is shot, she realizes that she has no one to turn to but her ex-lover, Pascal “”Goofy”” Guzman. Together they go on a desperate road trip in search of answers. The truth is darker and more terrifying than Nina could ever have imagined. After their love re-ignites, they fall into the Trickster God’s trap.

Excerpt:

She stared at the photo on the gallery wall and silently swore. All semester ghostly images had marred her work. And now not only a strange inclusion ruined her photo, but the pin light needed to be repositioned as well. She found a ladder in the hallway supply closet. Balancing precariously on the top step, she noticed that the imperfection had changed into the image of a vehicle, and it was on fire. She could see the superheated air wavering up off of the flames. The crackling and sudden heat of a blaze forced her to lift a hand to guard her face. It was going to explode. She was quite sure of it. And then she was falling backwards, falling down…

Review:

I really enjoyed this book.  I thought it was a good start to the series.  The characters are very well-formed and the story has some really wonderful twists and turns.  The love triangle between Joe, Pascal and Nina was just a really good addition to this book.  Being that Joe is basically residing inside Pascal makes it interesting when one takes over the other.  I also love the Pascal/Linda aspect of the story.  I think that added a depth to Pascal that you don’t initially have.  This was a real page turner that won’t allow you to put it down until you are finished and panting for the next one.  I really enjoyed this book and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys Paranormal and fantasy.  April Grey is an excellent writer that keeps you guessing and moves the story along at good pace.  You won’t regret picking up this book!

April Grey. The best piece of advice I ever had as a budding novelist was to also write short pieces.
