Book synopsis:

Firefighter Gianna Fallon struggles to hide her unusual talents – especially her ability to control fire. But when she and Callan Doyle are tasked with taking down a compound creating warriors with superpowers, both will need every tool they possess. 

Callan Doyle, surfer and former SEAL, hates what happened when he began receiving the mysterious injections that changed who he was. Still, he’ll use those changes to help destroy that compound. 

But a powerful evil hides in plain sight in the compound, making their task more treacherous. As a net slowly surrounds them, can they neutralize the evil in the compound before the net pulls tight and evil eliminates them? 


My Review:

I was excited when I read the blurb for An Indigo Wind. I was wondering who would be the next couple featured in The Four series. So, when I read that it was going to be Gianna and Callan (Cal), I was super psyched. Sparks flew between them in The Third Eye. Because of that, I was curious to see how their relationship was going to progress.

I liked Gianna. I was fascinated by her ability to control fire. Forget her superhuman strength; I liked that she could control fire. I was also intrigued that her fire manifested with her emotions. Any strong feelings and flames would appear on her hands. I also liked her super hearing. It helped her in more than one situation.

She was a born mutant. I do wish that the author had gone more into how she discovered her powers. There was an explanation about it manifesting when she went through puberty. An example was given about when she was lighting a magazine on fire. Other than that, nada. I would have loved to know how Gianna knew she had powers.

I liked Cal. For a former surfer, he didn’t give that laid back “brah” attitude that most have. If he hadn’t mentioned it, I wouldn’t have known that he surfed before joining the SEALS. I was fascinated with his ability to teleport. He was able to go anywhere. What I liked, even more, was that he was able to take people. Usually, if teleportation is mentioned, the person couldn’t take people.

Cal kept insisting that he was a made mutant, but I wondered. It wasn’t until the middle of the book that Cal admitted that he had powers before getting injected with Jack’s blood. He had an affinity with water. Jack’s blood gave him the ability to teleport, increased his affinity with water, and gave him the ability to control the weather. I did feel bad for Cal, though. He felt violated because of how he got his powers.

Cal and Gianna’s romance started slow but morphed into something hot. The sex scenes were out of this world!! I will say that I liked what happened when fire and water mixed. Not saying much on this but I will say that the title of the book is appropriate!!

I liked how the storyline from The Third Eye progressed. Enough was revealed and explained in An Indigo Wind that made me excited for Dark Matter. I have a feeling that I know how the next pairing will be and I can’t wait.

I do have to mention Rickart. All I will say is that I have a feeling that he is about to become a significant player in the remaining books. I am not going to say much more than that.

An Indigo Wind is not a stand-alone book. You need to read The Third Eye before reading this book. If you do read The Third Eye, read the epilogue. It explains a lot.

The end of An Indigo Wind was satisfying. I am not going to get into it, but I was surprised by what happened. It set up book three perfectly.


I would give An Indigo Wind an Adult rating. There is explicit sex. There is language. There is violence. I would reccomend that no one under the age of 21 read this book.

I would reread An Indigo Wind. I would also recommend it to family and friends.

**I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book**

Book Synopsis:

When evil invades her office building, Dr. Rowan Burke discovers her ‘gifts’ in the nick of time. After Detective Jack Murphy helps her avert a massacre, it’s clear he’s another ‘gift’ — one that draws her deeper into a new reality of darkness and magic.

While working together to defeat a powerful foe, Rowan and Jack become targets as they uncover a sinister conspiracy to create soldiers with extraordinary abilities. Struggling to stay one step ahead of an enemy who grows more terrifying by the moment, they must learn to see all the possibilities in each other’s gifts — if they’re going to survive. 


My review

I have been reading a ton of PNR lately. I’m not complaining about it – actually, the opposite. I am loving reading them. When I read the blurb for The Third Eye, I was intrigued by it. I am glad that I read it. This was a fantastic PNR!!

The Third Eye starts with Rowan waking up to her grandmother screaming in her bedroom. After waking her up, Rowan is told that she has a gift. She can see in the future and past. She is hit with the news that there is a whole subculture of people like Rowan. Rowan didn’t believe it until she started seeing visions. While she was picking up her possessions from a job that she was fired from. These visions helped save people’s lives, along with her own. But, she makes a powerful enemy. Someone who wants her dead. Can Rowan stay one step ahead of this group? Or will she become a victim?


The main plotline of The Third Eye is Rowan and her dance with her dangerous enemy. I thought that it was well written. The author did a great job of keeping who the bad guy was until the end.

There were a few secondary plotlines. I liked how they added to the plotline. Sometimes the secondary plotlines will take over the main one. Not in this case. These were kept in the background until the author decided to merge them with the main plotline.


I loved Rowan in The Third Eye. For someone who had a whole lot of crap dumped on her, she dealt with it pretty well. I mean, if I went through what she did, I would have been a basket case. I liked how she embraced her gifts. I also liked how she was willing to stand her ground and fight.

I liked Jack. His belief in Rowan was rock solid. I wasn’t surprised that he had powers. I was surprised at what they were. Sometimes, I wish I had those powers. While I understood his anger at Mason, I thought he went a little overboard. He also irritated me at the end of the book.

The secondary characters were awesome. I loved Aislinn, Flynn (I want to know her backstory!!), Gianna, Mason, and Cal. I cannot wait to see who the author pairs together. But, I have a feeling that I know. There were a couple of scenes in the book that made me go “Hmmmm.”


I thought that The Third Eye was a great fit in the paranormal genre. Rowan’s introduction to her second sight was interesting as was her bonding with her Moonstone. I am interested in seeing where this series goes.

I also thought that The Third Eye was a great fit in the romance genre. I will warn everyone; this isn’t a “get to know you” romance. It is an Instalove romance. I am not a fan of Instalove, but but certain storylines need it. And The Third Eye’s is one. Jack and Rowan couldn’t have had a romance if it was any other way.

The sex scenes were steamy!! If it could have, my Kindle’s screen would have steamed up. Jack and Rowan also had significant sexual tension. I saw it right from the beginning. The author did a fantastic job of keeping it going, even after they had sex.

The end of The Third Eye was great. I liked how the author resolved Rowan’s issues. I did a fist pump and said “Yes” when that happened. But even more, I loved the last chapters. All I have to say is that Rowan was right and Jack was a fool. The epilogue has me interested. Because of who and what was introduced. It went well with what Rowan was experiencing. I am wondering how it is going to figure into the next book.


I would give The Third Eye an Adult rating. There is explicit sex. There is violence. There is language. I would recommend that no one under the age of 21 read this book.

I would reread The Third Eye. I would also recommend this book to family and friends.

I would like to thank the author for allowing me to read and review The Third Eye.
