What does one do when the shadows of the past resurrect themselves and come to visit? That is the basis of the novel, Out of the Past. The story deals with the lives of two paranormal groups, vampires and werewolves, their interactions with each other, the human population, and a crazed killer. Enter in psychic Shanna, who can “see” the killings as they occur, a vampire detective on a personal crusade, no clear clues in any direction, and the story takes flight. As the bodies stack up, vampire detective Damien uses all the resources at his disposal to stop the killer before he strikes again, while still protecting the paranormal community from full-blown exposure to the world.
This novel is a non-stop action packed blast from start to finish. It made it very difficult to put down. The characters are beautifully and fully developed, and the story is easy to follow and just as easy to become absorbed in. A fantastic ride through the twists and turns of the paranormal world, this novel is an absolute blast.
