Description

A rare book. An ancient code. A new trilogy that "starts off with promise" (Pittsburgh Post-Gazette) from the New York Times bestselling master of passion and the paranormal. Within the pages of very rare books some centuries old lie the secrets of the paranormal. Abby Radwell's unusual psychic talent has made her an expert in such volumes—and has sometimes taken her into dangerous territory. After a deadly incident in the private library of an obsessive collector, Abby receives a blackmail threat, and rumors swirl that an old alchemical text known as The Keyhas reappeared on the black market. Convinced that she needs an investigator who can also play bodyguard, she hires Sam Coppersmith, a specialist in paranormal crystals and amber—"hot rocks." Passion flares immediately between them, but neither entirely trusts the other. When it comes to dealing with a killer who has paranormal abilities, and a blackmailer who will stop at nothing to obtain an ancient alchemical code, no one is safe.

        Bestseller Krentz (Fired Up) describes a world where people will kill to get their hands on a book, but this disappointing series starter is unlikely to inspire such fervor. Abby Radwell, a rare book dealer with paranormal talents, likes to keep her business in the shallow end of the underground market. After she’s held at gunpoint, she uses her abilities to escape, only to have a blackmailer threaten to reveal her talents. Sexy mad scientist Sam Coppersmith offers to protect Abby and track down the blackmailer if she’ll hunt down a dangerous encrypted book in exchange. But Sam is interested in more than a business relationship, and the way their auras resonate makes sparks fly. Unfortunately, the contrived story is peppered with character inconsistencies, romance clichés, and plot twists that fail to surprise.

        In this launch of Krentz's Dark Legacy series, a psychic rare-book expert must wrest a valuable text from evildoers while resisting (or not) the uncanny charms of her client. Abby Radwell specializes in unlocking the secrets of a certain species of rare book, the kind that is encrypted with a psychic lock that can only be decoded by someone with special clairvoyance. Collectors of such codices are not your typical bookish antiquarians--since these tomes can wield dark powers, their aficionados usually have mixed motives for acquiring them. Referred by her mentor, Thaddeus Webber, Abby accepts an assignment from Sam Coppersmith, scion of a wealthy mining family, who occupies Copper Beach, his ancestral mansion on a remote island near Seattle. Abby's mission: Find a coded lab notebook that holds the key to unleashing the potentially deadly energy of crystals rescued decades ago from a destroyed Coppersmith mine. In the wrong hands, the book's secrets could trigger crystal Armageddon. The competition for the book has already impacted innocent victims: An elderly archivist is accosted in her home, and Thaddeus and a fellow book dealer die of suspicious heart attacks. Already on the run from a blackmailer and would-be kidnappers, Abby ignores her best friends' warnings to stay far, far away from Sam and the whole project. This is paranormal romance after all, and Sam and she have an instant, psychically augmented, unequivocally erotic connection. Besides, she needs a bodyguard and someone to interrupt her sleepwalking episodes, during which she tends to set things on fire. Appropriately enough, legacies figure heavily in the plot. Among the suspects trawling for the book are Lander, who believes the Coppersmiths stole his inheritance, and Abby's snooty step-relatives the Stricklands, who have every intention of cutting Abby out of the will until somebody unwittingly bets their fortune on the lab-book quest. Although the stakes are far-fetched and fanciful, the suspense never flags, and such ado over print material carries its own nostalgic allure.

        Abby Radwell uses her psi-powers to incapacitate a crazed intruder who is after an encrypted alchemical book that she has the rare power to unlock. Now desperately needing help and protection upon receiving a blackmail threat, Abby heads for tiny Legacy Island and Sam Coppersmith, a reclusive paranormal crystal expert and the perfect person for the job--if only she can trust him. A deranged killer determined to claim his inheritance, old family enmities, and a pair of brainy, talented, well-matched protagonists drive the plot of this story that will keep fans intrigued as it spins the suspense out until the very end. VERDICT Wicked wit, psi-enhanced passion, and a delightfully twisted plot come together with sparkling precision as Krentz delivers another funny, sexy, suspenseful paranormal gem, the first in a new series. Krentz (In Too Deep) lives in Seattle. [See Prepub Alert, 7/10/11.]

        Technically, Sam Coppersmith might not be a private investigator, but he is exactly the man Abby Radwell needs to deal with her little problem. An antiquarian bookseller with a specialty in paranormally encrypted texts, she has been receiving anonymous notes that threaten to disclose secrets from her past unless Abby agrees to find a certain book for the blackmailer. Sam, an expert in rare minerals and paranormally charged crystals, is more than willing to take on the assignment, especially since he believes the book the blackmailer wants is the very same lab notebook his family has been trying to keep off the market (and out of the hands of crazies) for decades. However, things quickly become complicated between the two as Sam and Abby realize their simple business relationship is turning into something much more personal. Best-selling Krentz deftly invests Copper Beach, the first in her new Dark Legacy series, with a combustible combination of sharp wit, sizzling romance, and a riveting plot rich in paranormal-infused suspense.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2011, American Library Association.)
