Miranda by M. R. Sellars © 2010 WillowTree Press eBook $2.99 (U.S.)
I have been anticipating this book for quite a while. If you’ve been reading my reviews for more than a couple of years, you know that I am a big fan of M. R. Sellars’ work. Since I picked of my copy of Harm None “A Rowan Gant Investigation” (the first installment in the on-going drama which is Rowan Gant’s life), I have been hooked.
This book continues the saga, although it brings a cycle to a close. The series will continue that much is obvious, since Rowan has decisions to make. The “Miranda” cycle has ended, but Rowan is still committed to helping people on both sides of the veil.
This book sees Rowan suffering for a number of reasons, some of which are unexpected. If you have read the previous books in this cycle you know who (and what) Miranda is. She is hell-bent on possessing Rowan’s wife (Felicity), and will let nothing stand in her way. To that end she deprives Rowan of the one thing which he hates, but which gives him the edge he needs – his connection to those who have passed over. For years he has wished that he couldn’t hear them, but when they go away, he realizes that he has come to depend on the information they give him.
Rowan nearly dies (which isn’t terribly unusual for him), and finds himself being offered a new job. As if his work in the computer field and consulting with the St. Louis Police Department Major case Squad didn’t keep him busy enough, the Feds want him to work with them.
M. R. Sellars has not lost his touch. His writing continues to be compelling and engrossing. If you like novels which are firmly set in the real world; which treat Wicca as a normal part of life (even if some parts of it are a little “Hollywood”); and which sound like conversations you would hear on the street, this book (and its predecessors) will be something you can kick back and enjoy. My one warning, however, is that you MUST be aware just how addictive they can be. Don’t plan on doing anything else once you crack the covers. It is a great way to spend a weekend at the beach.
