Jane takes us all back to her world of Harmony in this fun quirky paranormal sci-fi read. Of course there are dust bunnies involved and a strong hero and heroine. Broken hearts need to be mended, murderers found and synergy united. Castle does this all with her own wonderful flare.
Lyra Dore is an amber tuner and an independent prospector. She has recently gone through a heartbreaking betrayal by her ex, Cruz Sweetwater. The Sweetwater’s and the Dore’s have major family history dating back to their grandfather’s time. The grandfathers had a falling out over a woman and a mine. The Dore’s have never financially recovered, while the Sweetwater’s have excelled. All of this means that Lyra and Cruz getting together was just doomed to fail. Lyra still has deep feelings for Cruz, but doesn’t see a future for them.
The Sweetwater’s have a very interesting family history when it comes to powers. Each has an affinity for a different stone and different powers that are fairly taboo. The powers they have didn’t come from their living on Harmony, but from the time they lived on Earth. Sweetwater’s know who their mates are and Cruz knows that Lyra is the only one for him. Now he has to find a way to get Lyra back and in the mean time they have to deal with murder and their own insecurities.
Obsidian Prey was a great addition to Castle’s repertoire of fine works. I loved the newly introduced dust bunny Vincent and the whole work just made me want to return to Harmony again to see what other interesting characters and powers will be revealed.
Amber tuner and independent prospector Lyra Dore lost her heart—and her discovery of a rare amethyst ruin—to cutthroat businessman Cruz Sweetwater. At least she had her artistically talented dust-bunny to comfort her...
But the ruin's mysterious power has put everyone involved with the project in danger. And only by trusting their psychic instincts will Cruz and Lyra survive—and surrender to the desire that binds them.
