Arcane Society - Book Three of the Looking Glass Trilogy

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

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?

From Publishers Weekly

Jul 04, 2011 – Though billed as SF, the flimsy conclusion of the Looking Glass trilogy (after April 2011's Quicksilver, bylined Amanda Quick) reads more like paranormal romantic suspense. Charlotte Knight's aura-reading psi talent is of such limited use that she runs an antiques shop on the island of Rainshadow, an ostensibly far future town on a distant planet that might as well be present-day Nantucket. When an aggressive ex-client winds up dead in Charlotte's shop, she and her longtime crush, Slade Attridge, whose own psychic powers have been crippled by trauma, are drawn into a murder investigation as well as an intense mutual attraction. Castle bewilderingly downplays the romance, her usual strength, to focus on the weak murder mystery and nonexistent world-building. The tale may appeal to dedicated Arcane Society series fans, but will disappoint those expecting even minimally competent science fiction.

Too Short, I Expect More From Author

I have read all of Jayne Ann Krentz book's including her historical ones as Quick and futuristic books as Castle.

This book was such a let down. Not because the characters were bad (I loved Slade, Charlotte, Devin and the rest of Rainbow Island's citizens). The problem is there was no resolution to the trilogy. The looking glass was barely mentioned. Non of the constant questions about the preserve are answered. The ending seemed rushed and really anticlimactic. When it was over my first thought was this is a filler story, so you have to buy another 7.99 ebook! I love this author but if these stories don't start becoming important in and of themselves I may have to leave her off my must read list. For the price I just expect more.

I also have some thoughts on Jayne's paranormal angle. First let me say I enjoy the fantasy in these stories. However, I'm tired of the same conflicts and resolutions. All the male characters seem to have the same type of problem: their talent isn't working right and they think they are going crazy/rouge/parablind (sometimes all 3). The female lead helps them figure out that they are ok or how to fix themselves. You dont need to read the book to know how it will turn out. I am at the point that I need something different if I'm going to stick with Arcane!

Finally a side note. If Jayne is going to continue the trilogies through each era, can't the publisher print them in order from historical to future? The suspense would be so much better!!!!
