In the year 2078, Cross Step, Kansas, is now home to strange portals called Voids. Norms (normal people), Voiders (those who came through the Voids) and Conduits (humans affected by the Voids) all live together, segregated from the rest of the world.
Vicki is a Conduit, a human with the psychic ability to tap into the energy around her. A mistake at a bar puts her under the scrutiny of one very hungry Ravager pack, werewolf-like Voiders who like what they see.
Eric isn’t just any Ravager, he’s Prime, the king of his clan. He takes what he wants, when he wants it—and he wants Vicki. It’ll take more than her sneaking, conniving and seductive ways to dissuade his interest. Because in Vicki, Eric and his packmates have something much more precious than a rare queen…they have a woman to love forever.
Reader Advisory: This book features totally hot scenes of foursomes and fivesomes, during which Vicki experiences oodles of orgasms courtesy of her red-hot Ravager lovers.
I really enjoyed this story. It is a unique take on shapeshifters and magic users, called conduits here, and one I have not come across before.
The heroine Vicki and her cousin Sean are Conduits who are able to take energy from people and things, shape it, share it, store it, and use it as a weapon. They use this ability in their job as '' retrieval experts''. They are on the run from someone they ''retrieved'' something from when Vicki runs into a pack of Ravagers, shapeshifters who came through the void from another planet. Eric. the Ravager Prime, or King, becomes enamored of Vicki. When she slips away from his pack, her defiance only makes him want her more.
The characters are unique and exciting. I found myself rooting for them more and more. My favorite was without a doubt Vicki's grandmother who was feisty, opinionated, and very strong willed. You just gotta love her! The love scenes were very well written. They were hot, hot, hot, and there were plenty of them.
This is the first thing I have read by Ms Harte, but you can bet it won't be the last!
