    "Nice edition to the Harmony series"

    I generally enjoy all of Jayne Castle/Jayne Krentz/Amanda Quick's books, this one was no exception. The beginning felt slightly disjointed, the transition from Frequency City to Rainshadow Island felt a little rushed. I almost thought I accidentally forwarded through a scene, but I know that she uses that style in a lot of her writing. Though it is easier to 'see' the transition when you read than when you listen, lol.

    Castle's female characters are always a bit feisty and a little 'unusual' in that they never seem to fit in with the norm (of the society the books are set in). Their quirks are part of their charm, and usually the reason the hero ends up falling for them. I've always liked the mix of fantasy & mystery & romance she puts in all her series. I am fascinated with the idea of psi- abilities and like the way she's still able to put a slight twist on it given Harmony's history - a bit of old fashioned sci-fi alien technology mixed with old-world fantasy psi-abilities.

    I basically logged on to Audible today to see if she had any other more recent books out in any of her pseudonyms. Alas, not until next month!

    Definitely recommend the author and this series, as well as the Arcane Society series which can be seen as part of this series too, if you squint :)

    "An Okay Listen - Performance was Great"

    Rachel Blake is somewhat of a misfit, yet has found peace and quiet on Rainshadow Island with her dust bunny companion. That peace would be shaken when Harry Sebastian, the descendant of a notorious pirate, arrives to investigate strange developments in the privately owned woods known as the Preserve. Rachel has the ability to see ‘aura’s’ and senses a darkness in him, but more importantly she feels a desire within herself.

    Before finding sanctuary on Rainshadow Island, Rachel knew monsters existed, where before she came to the island she encountered one daily, namely Marcus Lancaster at the Chapman Clinic where she had previously worked. Unfortunately, the administration at the hospital didn’t agree with her prognosis that he was a psychopath, hence her return to Rainshadow. Unfortunately, Marcus was not the only monster in Rachel’s life as she had nightmares of the bizarre creatures she had encountered the night she was lost in the mysterious preserve on the island. One thing she does know is that Harry Sebastian, a self-proclaimed monster hunter may be the only one who can both vanquish the monsters and save her from her lonely existence.

    *** Being a fan of Jayne Castle aka Jayne Krentz aka Amanda Quick one has the ability to read many different genres and of course, be totally enthralled with whatever this amazing author dreams up. One can always expect dry humor, action, romance, and unusual twists and turns whenever you are fortunate enough to settle in with one of Ms. Castle’s novels.

    As with most of her books, in THE LOST NIGHT, she has paired a couple of misfit lonely protagonists who ultimately fall in love after a series of starts and stops. Her characters generally have a fleshed out background in the type of worlds she creates which are filled with people with unusual psychic type gifts and backgrounds. Castle’s gift is the fact that she can not only imagine all these characters, but make the reader believe and dream of having some of these special gifts for them selfs. Imagine how cool it might be to be able to weed out your acquaintances by reading their aura’s and knowing whether they were truly nice – or not!

    The addition of the mysterious - funny - unbelievable - dust bunnies was a bit far-fetched and it did take me a little bit of time to wrap my head around just what they were, but in the end they were okay - however I might have related better with a cat or dog. All in all, the romance was a little rushed, but as far as the mystery and the plotting went it was quite good - not the best but enjoyable all the same.

    "Another Great Paranormal"

    Jayne Castle delivers consistently engaging paranormals and this is another one to add to my keeper shelf. In the Lost Night, the main characters are interesting and have real (paranormal) issues. I enjoyed Lost Night so much I listened to it twice the first week I got it.

    "Awesome Series!!!"

    Just love the rain shadow series. in just a few days, a new book comes out on 7/26/2016. Love the romantic suspense and paranormal aspect to this series. Each story builds onto the next series. Jayne Ann Krentz writing as Jayne Castle for this series. Or writing her arcane series as Amanda Quick...which then leads to the Jayne Castle series. One of my favorite authors, for many, many years. Would highly recommend any book under any name. But Arcane and Harmony to Rainshadow are my favorites.

    "A typical Harmony book."

    A typical Harmony book, good thing I like Jayne Castle because a lot of her books are very similar and this book is no exception. The characters are all basically the same too. The woman is a yuppie with a bleeding heart from a hippy back ground and the man is always a dangerous extremely rich and powerful type. Best animal creation though, I love the dust bunnies and totally want one. If you have not read a Jayne Castle books don't start with this one, too many references to other books. There also seemed to be holes in the explaining of the events and often times I was wondering how I got from point A to point B. The one thing that annoys me about Jayne Castle/Krentz/Quick is that all the books interlink somehow and if you don't read them in order then you are stuck wondering what happened in the other books. All of her series/books somehow link together and it drives me crazy because I'm the type who has to read things in order. This is basically a spin off story of the Harmony series. Joyce Bean does a good job narrating, I have always liked her.

    "Okay"

    This book was enjoyable but not fantastic. I think the most annoying thing was the constant mentioning of people and events that you are clearly supposed to know about but have never been mentioned and you know nothing about. At first I though maybe I had bought the second book, but when I checked this is listed as the first of the series. Odd. The narration is okay, I have definitely had to put up with worse when it comes to audio book. May get the next in the series, but not sure.

    "Good but not perfect"

    Generally a good convincing performance but a lot of the male characters sounded similar. Story was good but had a few sections where the action stopped and the characters all sat around explaining back story to each other
