Paranormal, Romance, Suspense
Haunted. Plagued. Tortured. How many times can you make the same mistake? How many lifetimes does it take to get it right? And how many people have to die in the process? In Scotland, Anna searches for answers. She finds cold rain, steep hills... and terror. When she sees the ancient broch, the ruined building triggers a terror she can’t explain. Scenes from her past lives provide glimpses of the web of events linking her to the broch and the man she’s lost countless times before. Trapped in an eddy of Fate invariably ending in blood, Anna tries to break the chain and protect what she lost before. Her tealeaves and tarot cards lead her, but the weight of the past may be too heavy.
3 out of 5 (good)
Independent Reviewer for Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!
I'm not really sure what I feel about this book. Its not a BAD book, by any means. I finished it, so it has that going for it. Something in it kept me going, but whatever it was, it didn't really materialise for me. I find these the hardest reviews to write, the ones that the book was okay but not brilliant; the ones that I can't really voice what I want to say; the ones where I can't finds the right words for that voice, even if I could find it! And it pains me, it really does. But I can say what I DID like! In the here and now, its written in the first person, from only Anna's POV. But when it goes back to the 1930's, to Davy's great grandfather and further back, to when it all began, in the 1400's, those times its written in the third person. Different, yes, and each time period only one person has a say but I did like that. It does get a bit violent in places, being in Scotland all the men are proficient sword fighters, and it does get bloody at times. Its not overly explicit though, and I really liked that for this book. I can't pinpoint what didn't work, and for that I am sorry! But not a bad book, just not a great one. 3 stars

Sorchia Dubois writes paranormal romance and mysteries from her upstairs office overlooking a piney Ozarks woods. She holds an M.A. in English and taught English at high school and college levels. Currently, she edits manuscripts for Oghma Creative Media, a small publisher in Northwest Arkansas, when she isn’t writing her own stuff. Her books delve into the riddles of life and the occult—Karma, reincarnation, psychic powers, mysticism, ancient cultures, and good old fashioned “ghosties and ghoulies and long-legged beasties and things that go bump in the night.” Separating the real from the imagined and the earthly from the unearthly are the challenges her characters face. But supernatural experiences aren’t the only scary things in her books. People manage to get themselves in the most terrible messes without any supernatural influence at all. A proud member of the Ross clan, Sorchia incorporates all things Celtic (especially Scottish) into her works. She likes a good sip of scotch now and again and can often be found at Scottish events. Online, you can find her at SorchiaDuBois.com.
