Now those secrets are unravelling and Emelynn is thrust into the eye of a storm as two powerful factions clash: one with claims on her, and another with a Machiavellian plan and Emelynn at its brutal centre.

Emelynn forms an uneasy alliance with a dangerous man she must learn to trust … and then she must risk everything to save her covey.

“Honestly – I don’t know. We’re all asking the same questions. Everyone with contacts has put feelers out searching for more information. I just hope we’re not stirring up a hornet’s nest with all the speculation. Just a few days ago, one of my contacts had his computer hacked. His first thought was that someone was on to him. It’s worrisome.”

My Opinion

This book reunites the readers with Emelynn Taylor – nocturnal noises in her house making her restless. Her request for sleeping pills is denied, Emery recommends having an alarm system installed. This is not the end of Em’s troubles, though.

With The Gift: Revelation, J. P. McLean has once again created a thrilling combination of mystery, paranormal, urban fantasy and a touch of romance. It is a compelling read, drawing you in as you learn more about Emelynn (‘Em’) and her gift. J. P. McLean paints a clear picture of Em’s mind while the story evolves. I was drawn close to Em and her story – an invisible friend and ally. The characters are of sufficient depth, believable with their flaws and virtues. The story is a very nicely woven combination of several genres, has a wonderful flow; it was easy to get hooked.

This is a book for you if you like mysteries or paranormal romance with a very urban touch and believable characters, some strewn in steamy situations, and some violent events.

The stunning second book in The Gift Legacy series!

Highly recommended!
