Set in the same world as Faith Hunter’s New York Times bestselling Jane Yellowrock novels, the third, thrilling Soulwood novel stars Nell Ingram, who draws her powers from deep within the earth.
Nell Ingram has always known she was different. Since she was a child, she’s been able to feel and channel ancient powers from deep within the earth. When she met Jane Yellowrock, her entire life changed, and she was recruited into PsyLED—the Homeland Security division that polices paranormals. But now her newly formed unit is about to take on its toughest case yet.
A powerful senator barely survives an assassination attempt that leaves many others dead—and the house he was visiting burns to the ground. Invisible to security cameras, the assassin literally disappears, and Nell’s team is called in. As they track a killer they know is more—or less—than human, they unravel a web of dark intrigue and malevolent motives that tests them to their limits and beyond.
In Hunter's third novel (after 2016's Curse on the Land) to feature probationary special agent Nell Ingram, someone, or something, is targeting a Tennessee senator and his family with bullets and fire. Nell's unit, Unit Eighteen of the Psychometry Law Enforcement Division (PsyLED) of Homeland Security, polices paranormal entities and people with unusual abilities. When suspicion for the attacks on the senator falls on DNAKeys, a lab that may be experimenting on paranormals, PsyLED is called in, but the body count rises, and Nell fears that their efforts may be too little too late. In addition to her newly minted status as special agent, Nell is working through some personal issues around separating from the cultlike God's Cloud of Glory Church; exploring her growing feelings for fellow agent Occam, a wereleopard; and discovering there is much more to her earth-based powers than she thought, including the leaves that have begun to sprout from her neck and fingernails. Nell's coming into her own as an independent woman is as fascinating as PsyLED's investigation into a very unusual family that's hiding dangerous secrets. Hunter's many fans will be delighted with her strong new heroine.
