Today's review is on Psyche's Prophecy by Ann Gimpel
Being a Mental Health Therapist myself, I was intrigued by the
description of Psyche's Prophecy, and just had to add it to my list of
books to review. And though I am not a huge follower of the Jungian
method of treatment, I was still pleased to see the authenticity of
danger that sometimes can happen my profession.
Lara McInnis is a successful Psychologist in Seattle, Washington.
Living with her long-term boyfriend Trevor, she has turned a blind eye
to the increasing problems that are plaguing the world.
Having used up almost all of the worlds resources, gas is expensive
and hard to find, as well as food. As if that isn't enough to worry
about, Lara has to deal with a vengeful client who has been beating his
pregnant wife, and is none to happy about Lara's interventions beyond
that of his court appointed shared sessions with his wife.
Usually her psychic ability warns her of danger, but when she finds
herself being threatened by him at gunpoint she's at a loss for why it
Between bombs, break in's, and the loss of friends, Lara and Trevor
find; with the help of a couple of Sidhe, more about themselves than
they ever knew. And though the threat from her client does come to an
end, there is yet another danger at their feet. The Dark Side knows
Lara is coming into her powers and will do just about anything to stop
that from happening.
Fearing the end of civilization as they know it is upon them, Lara
and Trevor leave their home to move to a more secluded property where
they will be self sufficient. Will they have enough time before all
hell breaks loose? I'll have to read the next book, Psyche's Search to
find out, and so will you.
A fantastic first book for Gimpel.
