Rachel Bonner, trained to recognize the auras of criminals, has finally found some peace on Rainshadow Island with her dustbunny. In The Lost Night by Jayne Castle, Rachel’s peace is upset when for one night she can’t remember what happened but was found wandering outside the dangerous Preserve. When things start mysteriously happening in Rainshadow, Rachel decides she must work with the charismatic Harry Sebastian to figure out what happened to that lost night.
Harry Sebation, descendant of the notorious pirate who originally settled Rainshadow Island, has been charged by his family to figure out what is going wrong at the Preserve and fix the problem before someone gets injured or killed. Harry was attracted to Rachel from the very first time he met her but if he can’t figure out what happened to her she may not live long enough for him to preserve a relationship.
The Lost Night is the second book in the Rainshadow series and takes us back to the reclusive Rainshadow Island, home of individuals who prefer to live off the grid but watch out for each other. We got a little taste of the Preserve, the mysterious area protected by a psychic fence, in Canyons of Night. The Lost Night follows Jayne Castle’s standard story, high level psychic characters, scary killer, cute dust bunny but when Rachel and Harry enter the Preserve the story takes a fabulous turn into the fantastic. The story went a direction I didn’t expect and I loved the descriptions of what Harry and Rachel find. I love all of the Jayne Castle stories that take place on the world of Harmony and The Lost Night is a great beginning (kind of) to a new line in the Harmony series.
