FICTION SUSPENSE & THRILLERS
by Deidre Knight
The war rages outside and within: Third book reaches new heights!
Series: Midnight Warriors
How does Deidre Knight do it? The first Parallel book was exceptional
and each installment gets better and better! Parallel Seduction has more action
as the war deepens and affects the characters, more suspense as the
parallel worlds touch each other, and much more romance.
When Hope Harper, an FBI linguist, is called in to translate the
Refarian language, her duties bring her into contact with two men,
Scott Dillion and Jake Tierny, an unknown factor who sets off alarms
for all sides of the raging battle. Nearly blind from diabetes yet
feisty and skilled, Hope uses her language skills and dreams to see
beyond her the physical immediate reality. As Hope battles for her life
and tries to choose between the two men, Deidre Knight delights readers
by developing the stories of other characters. The exiled Refarian king
Jared Bennett and Kelsey Wells battle Antousians and their infertility.
Details of parallel worlds are given to shed more light on the past
betrayal by Thea Haven and Marco McKinley. Although their story is not
as prominent, the scenes and their context are crucial to understanding
the betrayal and the entire parallel world effect. The history of the
Refarian and Antousian animosity emerges in this installment, drawing
the reader deeper and deeper to her finely created alien world.
While the war rages outside, Knight also shows the war inside of the
dual creature. This installment delves deeper into the cruelty of war
and the power of love. Knight's imaginative writing allows the reader
to understand evil at its heart. The details of the love experienced by
Hope in the heat of battle reaches a new height in the Midnight Warriors series. Readers
will remember the exquisitely written encounter between Hope and the
evil Antousian Veckus for many years. Stunning!
Deidre Knight tackles the issue of gene therapy. Knight's context
differs from current political debates enough to reach the heart of
both sides of several issues and the reader's heart. Her questions are
both more philosophical and practical. The author views both sides and
allows the reader to contemplate both without a simplistic resolution.
Deidre Knight combines all the strengths of the paranormal romance and
science fiction genres and creates a masterpiece!
