Released: January 2011

In order to get home to her own dimension, FBI Profiler Jace Valchek must not only hunt down the serial killer known as Stoker, but also Asher, the man who brought her to this dimension in the first place.  Problem is, he's gone rogue, and it's up to her to catch him and bring him in.  She gets wind he'll be in Vegas, so she heads out with a team to catch him, only to end up kidnapped and trapped in the middle of a war.  The golems have turned on the pires and thropes in a last ditch effort to save what few humans remain, but that explanation doesn't sit well with Jace. 

After breaking out, she teams up with an assassin from yet another dimension, hoping together they can ferret out those responsible and instill some semblance of order in an increasingly chaotic world.  Good thing she's up for a challenge.

Book three is still going strong, and it shows us yet another universe, one whose future is tied into her current universe's past.  I really get an idea of parallel dimensions and how they work with this book, and it's obvious once again the author has done her homework.  It's a fun read through time and space, and it keeps you on your toes from beginning to end.  You never know what's going to happen next, because no matter how much you know the characters, the author's there to throw a curveball into the whole thing.  I love it.
