They say the course of true love never runs smooth, and Detective Ben Nelson is learning the truth of that adage in a big way. Two months ago, his lover Artie Middleton was tortured by demons determined to claim the psychic’s special gifts for their own. Now the same friends who helped Ben with the rescue are making a strong case that something about Artie isn’t right. When Artie verbally attacks his best friend, Ben is forced to acknowledge the unbreakable barriers surrounding Artie’s mind.
Searching for someone with the right gifts to help, Ben encounters a woman who insists there’s only one way—and one person—who stands a chance at saving Artie. What Ben finds when he goes on his solo rescue mission may very well mean both of their deaths, as they confront the evil that has made Artie’s mind the Devil’s playground.
Artie and Ben are so good together. They’ve got an everlasting love that you can feel. They just have to get past all the supers trying to kill them or take their powers. Then they’ll a fabulous happily ever after, I can feel it! Ben is so strong in his willingness to do anything for Artie. And I love that Artie is so hurt by his actions when under the influence. Shows how much his friendships mean to him. How he makes up to Laurant is so sweet. They’re such good friends and I hated they were at odds. There are still so many things left unanswered. But holy moly I am loving this series. I can’t wait to read the next!
