Obsidian Prey - Ghost Hunters, Bk 6
Author: Jayne Ann Krentz, Jayne Castle
On the planet Harmony, humans were not the first people to live there as an ancient race lived and traveled in underground buildings, tunnels and catacombs that cross the entire orb. The former inhabitants were strong in ESP and also left behind strong residual PSI that had the effect of brining out similar previously latent powers in humans. — L...  more »

Interesting book where the conflict has already started between the hero/heroine with a failed courtship, due to business matters regarding an archeological site that has led to a lawsuit. The hero waits to resume his pursuit due to various reasons, which makes his motives suspect to the heroine. She has been suing him in revenge, nearly bankrupting herself in the process. There is some bad blood between his Sweetwater clan and her Dore family (which has died out to just her). Much less society/matchmaking/etc in this book, but tons of psi-powers and arcane society references. Enjoyable quick read, not my favorite in the series, but okay.

FYI - Dust Bunnies were out in full-force in this book, as in other books in the series, helping vanquish bad guys, eating cookies, cooing and bouncing, and generally causing mayhem.

The planet Harmony was cut off from Earth centuries before these stories take place. The descendants have developed a culture based on amber as a power source. Psychic powers are developing more each year. Indigenous creatures called 'dust bunnies' are pairing up with humans...

Before the story begins, the heroine made a 'find' in the catacombs. The hero - acting in everyone's best interest at least in his opinion - takes control of it away from her because 'it might be dangerous'. The heroine has an attitude [not an unjustifiable reaction to the situation] and the hero feels his decisions were the right ones. Now things have gone wrong at the site and he wants her help. She'd like to tell him to take a hike but there are lives at stake...

A good read although not an epic one. This one also emphasizes the Arcane Society which she is writing about in her Jayne Ann Krentz and Amanda Quick incarnations. Vince the artistic dust bunny is another winner.

The first three could probably be read in any order but the last ones really need to be sequential or the reader will become fairly confused.

I'd forgotten how much I love Ms. Krentz/Castle's books set in Harmony! Perfect for a lazy summer day, it's a fast, entertaining read. I highly recommend it!

The 6th story about the Harmony planet previously occupied by aliens who lived underground, and now occupied by humans who've developed psychic powers, and all the main character (females) have dust bunny pets. The artistic dust bunny ' Vincent' was adorable! in this story. I've enjoyed all of Jane Castle's books. She also writes as Jayne Ann Krentz and a few other names when she changes styles from this sy-fy romance to contemporary romance. Of course her latest sy-fy romance is about a dark brooding male, whose family claims has a broken heart, by our Shero.
Sometimes Castle's characters have complimentary amber using powers, this story has stand alone powers and was interesting and twisty with it's plot. A decent read for my airplane trip to New Mexico.

Vince the artistic dust bunny who likes to paint and is the ultimate predator is the most fascinating character in the book! He is funny and a fresh element. I enjoyed the further detail about Harmony and the Arcane society and dust bunnies and what not. I was bored as all heck by the romance though.

The world of Harmony is charming; and almost makes you believe it really does exist! Lyra Dore would also make you a very good BFF. The world of Harmony and the characters are well thought out and generously presented. We look forward to more of the same.
