New York Times best-seller CJ Lyons is noted for her "breathtakingly fast-paced" (Publishers Weekly) thrillers and has been called a "master of the genre" (Pittsburgh Magazine). In her latest thriller she combines the worlds of supernatural horror, medical thrillers, science fiction, and a love story that spans eternity.
Fate tore them apart.... Can a madman bring them back together? Grace Moran would do anything to be with her lost love...then she's forced to choose between saving the world and saving him.
Former ER doctor Grace Moran has been through a lot. After witnessing her husband's murder and barely surviving herself, she's left medicine and become a prisoner of her own house and mind. Until she wakes up in her old hospital, told that she has a brain tumor that can be treated only if she agrees to participate in an experimental treatment. Grace sees her brain tumor as a blessing rather than a curse. It's a chance for her to die and be reunited with her lost love, her soul mate, her husband.
Before she can flee the hospital, she stumbles on two critically ill children whose lives are also at risk. Her only allies are the ghost of Grace's murdered husband, a time-traveling Jesuit, and an ancient Irish warrior queen as they are pulled into a world where time is meaningless, fate is fluid, and true love never dies....
The underlying story wasn't bad, but it was a little convoluted. There were lots of characters to keep track of, and the flashbacks were awkward. The narration was good, though. Ms. McCarthy's Irish brogue was excellent and her British accent was passable. I like Dr. Lyons' books so I'll forgive this one and keep reading her stories.
Wonderful character definition by the narrator. Plot kept me anxious for next twist. Jumps around in time would've thrown me without the different character voices from the reader.
