When the body of supermodel Harmony Phelps turns up in Morgantown, WV, Detective Mark Faulkner and Assistant Medical Examiner Renee Forst are sent on a downward spiral of unreality.
A year before the body's appearance, Kat Forst sees a vision of her own death. Now, the dream that haunts her with every sleep both frightens and intrigues her. Each night, she enters a bathroom; each night, three men test her resolve; each night, Kat finds herself drawn closer to the man decorated with swirling, glittering patterns of coral stone.
Drugged and abducted by the Mastichoria of Chios, controllers of a mythical spice, Kat will confront the truth of her vision, the reality of her bloody fate. And the man within her dreams is real: Mikolas, the seducer. She tries to fight him, but his will is stronger; his desire is stronger. To Kat, the magic within her blood is a curse. To Mikolas, her blood means salvation.
Across the daunting oceans, Mark and Renee pursue Kat. Time and destiny are against them.

I love this book and had wanted to listen in one sitting, it leaves you wanting to just keep on listening to see what’s going to happen next. The back story of Mastic and the legend it’s based on is so intriguing and the writing style keeps propelling you forward. I highly recommend this audiobook.
Mastic is amazingly descriptive. I could see it, smell it and even taste it. It has a little bit of romance, a nice dash of paranormal, and a sprinkling of fantasy all mixed up with a heaping dose of mystery. Along with a bunch of twists and turns, you aren't really sure where things will end up until the very end.
Pamela Lorence does a wonderful job with the narration of Mastic. You can easily tell who is talking at the time, and she reads clearly with a good pace.
Audio book provided for an honest review.
I am a wee bit over the half a century mark in years. I enjoy audiobooks,cats,rats and most days my family,not necessarily in that order!lo
A body is found.It's perfect,then it's gone!This leads to so many twists and turns it was hard to keep up!It was a interesting and fun ride though.I highly recommend reading or listening to this book if you can!
Pamela Lorence is a wonderful narrator and was perfect for this book.
"I was provided this audiobook at no charge by the author in exchange for an unbiased review via AudiobookBlast dot com."
I expected more of a mystery procedural and more of a fantasy sci-fi. The books starts in 3rd person but switches abruptly halfway through to 1st person leaving the focus characters of the first part far behind.
