Blind Trust – Jody Klaire

EmpathI hadn’t read Jody Klaire’s first book in the Above & Beyond series so was delighted to have The Empath and Blind Trust to read in sequence and get right into the characters of Aeron Lorelei and Renee Black.

The Empath sets the scene of Aeron’s life – different, persecuted and emotionally abused by a whole town – incarcerated for a murder she only thinks she committed, and Renee, the CIG protector sent to look after her. It’s a great murder mystery – action adventure with a huge dose of supernatural and ‘different’ skills such as visiting ghosts, helpful spirits, auras, visions and healing powers. Aeron and Renee must combat the locals, the killer and the storms that threaten to sweep them away.

Blind TrustBlind Trust finds Aeron and Renee caught in an avalanche and facing another set of challenges, some from mother-nature, others from the bullies and nay-sayers of the small town they are stranded in. This time it is Renee who is the target, Aeron the protector.

The characters we get to know are great: strong women, well rounded personalities, deep and complex. Friends, family and co-workers provide variety, all three dimensional and a strong part of the story. These books are as much about how people behave under duress as they are about the psychopaths the agents must tackle.

Jody KlaireWhile the themes of alternate psychic powers and special agents run through, the plots are different, the settings varied and the townsfolk – and their behavior – like chalk and cheese.

Great stories, well written, thoroughly enjoyable. Looking forward to No 3.
