Book Review: Psyche's Prophecy

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 didn't.

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.

4 of 5 stars
