Silver Master by Jayne Castle
by Jayne Castle
Pros: Fun and creative
Cons: Same old stuff
All the titles in this series are very similar – “off the charts” psi-powered main characters in a creative, futuristic alternate earth-like world meet, overcome some major threat and fall in love at the same time.
While the storylines aren’t that creative, I think the world this author has created is a nice change from all the dark goth settings so popular right now. Don’t get me wrong – I love those too – but I do enjoy visiting the much more relaxing world of Harmony every now and then.
Ms. Castle (aka Jayne Ann Krentz aka Amanda Quick) is very good at creating very realistic characters; people who seem much like that guy you met at the office (if perhaps a bit more of a hottie) or remind you of the girl you used to hang out with. Despite their psychic abilities, they are every-people, and I like that about them. I can relate to them and their situations, because even though they are literally out of this world, they still worry about getting to work on time and what they’re going to have for breakfast.
A fun, not too deep, not too heavy story with good action, likable characters and sweet romance. Throw in the cute little dust bunnies and it’s a happy mix for this reviewer!
