Who: T. R. Graves
What: Warriors of the Cross
Allison La Crosse, beginning a challenging family medicine residency, leaves the protection of her family. With the transfer, her worst nightmares come true. Her closely guarded mystical talents – those which seldom appeared before the move – unleash themselves from her confinement and reveal their presence with very little provocation.
Allison’s most terrifying power is her compulsion to cure the sick with her touch. Given her career, this gift would be valuable if she were not drawn like a magnet to the ailing person's every symptom. Some of which are fatal.
At the hospital and surrounded by life-and-death emergencies, Allison’s inability to manage her impulse turns deadly. When it does, her mentor, Brody, rescues her from her own demise. His resuscitation ignites an exciting and tempestuous bond between them.
Desperate for a cure, they join forces and embark upon a journey to uncover the origins of Allison’s lethal curse. In the midst of their adventure, Allison exposes a secret pursued by many…known by few. According to the discovery, she was not born into the family she adored. Unbeknownst to her or the surrogate family, she was switched at birth. With this knowledge, she learns there is a malevolent world her biological parents tried to keep from her. In fact, her mother sacrificed herself to make sure Allison remained safe from its dangers and her enemies.
Cover: Mystical & alluring! I've been seeing more and more hand drawn covers lately and I'm starting to take quiet a liking to them ;)
My Thoughts: Awesome! I love when a different concept of paranormality is thrown in our in my face. A twist on your every day "ability" makes me want to read to book right away. So I'm looking forward to the day when I can sink my teeth into this read.
