A Perfect Darkness

by Jaime Rush

      A new author and a new type of paranormal tale readers will enjoy.  I know I did.  The constant action, the emotions, and the anxiety of not knowing what will happen next makes Jaime Rush in her debut novel, A Perfect Darkness, an author to be reckoned with. Excellent plot, characters, and suspense.

For all of her mostly orphaned life, Amy has known she was different.  She can talk to dead people and, be they stranger or friend, she can read a person's aura.  Content to spend her days, and nights if need be, working on computer hard drives, she is startled when a stranger breaks into her apartment.  Not just any stranger but Lucas, the man who has made incredible love to her in dreams.  He insists he is there to protect her and that rings true when more men infiltrate her apartment.  Lucas gives himself over to them to protect Amy.

Now Amy is on the run for her life and ends up with what the government calls Rogue Offspring—children of extraordinary parents with talents of their own.  She meets Petra who can hear things from far away, and Eric who can set a person on fire with just a look. Together, they risk their lives to save Lucas, before the drugs he is given to get him to commit murders by slipping into the minds of target individuals, can kill him.

Life takes an even stranger turn when Lucas warns Amy that she will die and when her uncle, who is killed while protecting her, speaks to her from the dead.  Time is wasting, and once again the Rogue Children are on the run and looking for others to help in a plan to destroy the unsanctioned secret government agency which is trying to exploit them, and use their powers for evil.
