Joss Stirling

Summer lives under a terrible shadow. It drains her, manipulates her and threatens to steal her future.

A high-stakes mission offers a temporary escape. She must use her mind-shadowing abilities to hunt down her target and find the truth.

Hal Robinson is a soldier. He does not get distracted. He wins. But what Hal wants begins to shift once he meets Summer.

They must learn to trust each other if they are going to protect the Savant community. But will their secrets allow them to find a happy ending of their own?

Dear Reader,

Welcome to the sixth book in my savant series. Summer is a heroine I came to care very much about, partly because I found her so intriguing. She hid her secret from me for a long time until I worked out what it was. In one way I suppose she is like many real life teenage carers, carrying a heavy burden without telling their friends about it, but in her (fictional) case this is a particularly dangerous one that dips into the paranormal world of the savants.

I wanted to help her out but in an unusual way. Enter Hal, whom I thought of as being chalk to her cheese. He has to go a long way to prove that, despite his lack of savant credentials, opposites really do attract.

And of course there is Victor and Afghanistan. I had to save the biggest challenge to the end, didn’t I?

Finally, look out for all your favourite Benedict’s because they are back and on a mission.
