Book Six in the Night Prowler Series
(Can be read as a Standalone)
In New Vienna, capital of the oppressive global government formed after the Flash, three things are certain: the sun is poisonous, speaking out is dangerous, and being different will get you killed.
And Lumina Bohn is extraordinarily different.
Living in terror of discovery, Lu knows nothing of her past—but she knows she must pretend to be human to survive. When an incident at work triggers her astonishing powers, she becomes the target of an international manhunt. Only one person can save her: Magnus, the enigmatic stranger haunting her dreams.
Magnus rescues the outcasts called Aberrants from capture and torture. As Lu begins exploring her powers among her people, her feelings for Magnus intensify. He’s determined to stay emotionally distant, yet their smoldering passion soon becomes impossible to resist.
But when a shocking revelation threatens the lives of every remaining Aberrant, Lu and Magnus must risk everything, confronting their enemies in an explosive final stand to save their kind from the darkest fate of all: extinction.
Another amazing story by J.T. Geissinger. Her writing style is truly so vivid, poetic, and full of angst, that every time I read a book by her I’m completely transported into another world and cannot put the book down. There’s more than just words on a paper; they’re words to this vivid story just begging to take you away. This novel, the finale to the Night Prowler series, was a truly fitting ending to an amazing series.
“Lu didn’t care about pretty exteriors. She knew even the most beautiful things could be worm-eaten on the inside.”
Lumina was raised by adoptive parents who knew right away that she was different than them, but they loved and accepted her anyways. In this world after The Flash, in New Vienna where the sky is bleached red and no sun exists with harsh dictatorship, it is illegal to be different so Lu’s parents instruct her to hide what she is, and to protect it with her life. So she wears gloves because it’s a safe barrier, otherwise bad things have been known to happen. And it’s still so hard for her to hide it, especially with times of excessive emotion when things tend to go up in a ball of smoke…quite literally. Lu was an amazing character. She so suited the child of who her mother is, that we met back a prior book, with her spark for life, her untimely passion, and her will to stand up for herself and what she believes in. When word gets out on day that her powers have been seen, and the Prime Minister comes a’calling, one meeting with him sends her running for her life.
“Color, everywhere. So much color it stung her eyes. The gently sloping hillside where she now stood gaping was carpeted emerald, and dotted with the darker forest green of trees. The sky was blazing, enamel blue, the clouds so white they shone like pearls. Even the air smelled like a color: green. Lush, verdant, and rich with life.”
It’s when she’s trying to get to a safe place that we meet him. Magnus is the pack leader, and he’s been hunting for Lu for a long time to bring her back to her people. He takes her back to his pack, the members of the Ikati that we’ve come to know and love in all previous books. Magnus is scarred–both internally and externally. And even though Lu and he have been meeting during dreams without one another knowing who each other are, he still can’t see why a beautiful, strong woman would be interested in a ruthless, ugly bastard such as he. I loved him, and his tortured sole. She was everything that was right for him, and it was beautiful to witness.
“‘You’ve touched me more than any other living thing in the last twenty years. That should be enough.'”
Lu, having heard rumors all of her life about how the Aberrants are captured and tortured, finds that the rumors are very much true, and why they’re keeping them captive. She and Magnus team up, much to his dismay, to help rescue them…sending them on a path of survival for both themselves and their people. J.T. truly wove a beautiful story that was such an amazing ending to their story, and to the entire series as a whole. It was an incredibly journey, and I hate that it’s over. Lu and Magnus’ story was filled with passion, a build-up to an incredible romance, and with moments of humor that had me giggling. It will be a book that I will re-read over and over again.
“In a quiet voice, Magnus said, ‘There’s nothing else for me but you. There never has been. There never will be. I know that now.'”
