Today's review is on Psyche's Search by Ann Gimpel
Psyche's Search is the second installment in Gimpel's Psyche's
series. This continuing tale about Dr. Lara McInnis and her long-term
boyfriend Trevor had me turning page after page into the burning dawn.
Picking up right where Prophecy left off, Search had just as much drama,
conflict, and surprises.
Thinking that her life will go back to some sort of normalcy after
the threat from a vindictive client has come to an end, Lara goes back
to work. Though she now knows that she is still in danger, she has
agreed to close her private practice. Besides it not feeling the same
without her long-time friend and receptionist Arabel, the fuel shortages
and food shortages have created continuing riots. Feeding on the
chaos, Gradosxt and his demon minions take action.
In an effort to get back at Lara, Officer Brad Dickey's daughter is
kidnapped. Gradosxt's plan is to set a trap using Dickey and his
daughter to capture her. He even goes as far as hexing a scarf and a
photo that transports Lara to the DREAMING.
Danger is abound for Trevor as well, as he almost looses his life
three; yes, three times in this installment. Luckily, he survives, but
others are not as lucky.
As with Prophecy, the author continues to utilize her own knowledge
of psychology; and more importantly Jungian psychology, to create a
fantastic tale. Well thought out and expertly written, this is one of
my favorite series.
