Sentinels: Lynx Destiny-Doranna Durgin

Sentinels: Lynx Destiny Doranna Durgin Harlequin Nocturne, Feb 4 2014, $5.75 ISBN: 9780373885893 While staying alone at her father’s cabin in the Sacramento Mountains for the first time since she fled as a child, Regan Adler lectures the land to stop talking to her. She also knows she cannot stay long or risk the fate of her mom who lost her mind to the voices before dying in a car accident. Kai Faulkes the lynx-shifter lives in isolation near the home of Regan’s father. He hides from the Atrum Core who would assassinate him for his uncanny ability to expose their magic and from the Sentinels who would place him under constant house arrest in order to exploit his skill. Kai’s world shifts when he hears Regan chatting with the mountain while also detecting the new silent Core magic. Unable to ignore her, Kai comes to Regan’s aid, but needs her to embrace her talent if they are to survive the Core horde assaulting them. The latest Sentinels romantic fantasy (see Kodiak Chained) is a fabulous fresh entry with the wonderful spin of the hero avoiding both sides in the war of magic. The story begins leisurely introducing the uniqueness of each of the lead characters before accelerating into an action-packed thriller. Harriet Klausner
