The island of Rainshadow is home to the mysterious, privately-owned woods known only as the Preserve. Now, after fifteen years away, both Charlotte Enright and her teen crush, Slade Attridge, have returned. But will their psi talents and Slade's dust bunny companion be enough to keep them from getting drawn into the darkness at the heart of the Preserve?

My rating:

A good finale to the Looking Glass Trilogy, though I don’t think we’ve seen the last of the Arcane yet.

This was the usual JAK/AQ/JC fare, only without (!) an annoying heroine. Yay! Good pacing, rather tight plot (though there were a few moments she lost me), great characters, good mystery, a funny dust bunny companion with a quirk for purses, sizzling chemistry and hot sex.

And it was also a great introduction into the Rainshadow series. That second last chapter offered just enough of a lure to make me want to read the next book. Just what is in the Preserve? Ooh, I can’t wait.
