Arcane Society: The Looking Glass Trilogy, Book 1
Borrow Borrow Borrow
New York Times bestselling author Jayne Ann Krentz presents the first novel in an Arcane Society trilogy set in a secluded coastal town in Northern California—a mysterious place where danger and passion run deep...
Scargill Cove is the perfect place for Fallon Jones, confirmed recluse and investigator of the paranormal. It's a hot spot, a convergence point for unusually strong currents of energy, which might explain why the town attracts misfits and drifters like moths to a flame. Now someone else has been drawn to the Cove—Isabella Valdez, on the run from some very dangerous men.
When she starts work as Fallon's assistant, Isabella impresses him by organizing his pathologically chaotic office—and doesn't bat an eye at the psychic aspect of his job. She's a kindred spirit, a sanctuary from a world that considers his talents a form of madness. But after a routine case unearths an antique clock infused with dark energy, Fallon and Isabella are dragged into the secret history of Scargill Cove and forced to fight for their lives, as they unravel a cutthroat conspiracy with roots in the Jones family business...and Isabella's family tree.

    Starred review from November 8, 2010
    The cops just can't handle psychically powerful criminals who deal in weapons-grade paranormal artifacts. Enter the Jones & Jones detective agency. Known for his solitary habits, investigator Fallon Jones has taken on an assistant, Isabella Valdez, who displays some unusual talents of her own as she helps him dig through an ever-expanding mess of paranormal criminal activity. Krentz's latest Arcane Society novel is loaded with sexual tension between the tough-but-lovable Isabella and the normally dour Fallon, and the story hilariously alternates between inventive, deadly action and the amusingly gossipy smalltown characters in Scargill Cove, Calif., a supernatural nexus. Krentz (aka Jayne Castle and Amanda Quick) never rests on her laurels, carefully crafting a story that works on every level: as a detective novel, a paranormal thriller, and a romance.

    Premiere of Krentz's new trilogy about a psychic detective agency.

    In this latest addition to the Arcane Society series, para-detective Fallon Jones has finally met his match in Isabella Valdez, who has washed up in his home base, a remote, cliffside Northern California village called Scargill Cove. A few decades back, a commune of hippies lived here, under the sway of a guru who disappeared under mysterious circumstances but whose skeletal remains were later found in a bomb shelter hidden behind the Cove's no-tell motel. Scargill, a "nexus" of psychic energy, is a magnet for the preternaturally endowed. Strong, silent Fallon, whose psychic "talent" empowers him to see order in chaos, is instantly drawn to Isabella. Isabella invites herself to join Fallon's agency, Jones & Jones, as an investigator. Fallon is descended from those paranormal aristocrats the Joneses, Victorian-era pillars of the Arcane Society. For centuries, the Society, a shadowy league of talents working for good, has battled the minions of occult evil. The first case Isabella takes on, a routine ghost check of a mansion listed for sale, uncovers much more than she bargained for: a serial killer, a basement hiding human remains and, more importantly for Jones & Jones, a clock invented by Victorian genius, and Jones' nemesis, Mrs. Bridewell. That's just the beginning of this impossibly convoluted saga. Fallon and Isabella succumb all too soon to blistering passion, but probably not often enough for romance readers' expectations. The plot connecting the sex scenes, which involves internecine warfare among good psychics, bad psychics and clandestine government agencies, not to mention factions within the Society itself, soon becomes too "arcane" to sustain interest.

    A chaotic welter of loose ends that Fallon himself couldn't unsnarl.

    Reclusive, brilliant Fallon Jones counts himself lucky that he has found an assistant like Isabella Valdez--organized, insightful, and totally accepting of his unnerving chaos-theory talent. But Isabella is not only a powerful talent in her own right, she is on the run from someone who wants her dead--and she has gone to ground in Scargill Cove, a tiny coastal town where no one asks questions. A macabre discovery in an old house gets things off to a chilling start as Isabella and Fallon are in a deadly web that stretches back to the malicious glass creations of Victorian inventor Millicent Bridewell, cleverly designed weapons that have lost none of their power over the years, as Fallon and Isabella quickly discover. VERDICT With vibrant wit and consummate flair, the creative, captivating Krentz has delivered another ingenious, suspenseful tale that unravels a mystery, pairs up another perfect couple, and successfully launches a new "Arcane Society" trilogy with well-placed hints of the delightful evils to come. Krentz (Fired Up) lives in Seattle.
