about

On the surface she's a sexy, sophisticated socialite, at home among the beautiful people of the Las Vegas upper crust. But Joanna Archer inhabits another world: a place ordinary humans cannot see . . . a dangerous dimension where an eternal battle rages between the agents of Light and Shadow. And Joanna is both.

Stalked by an enigmatic doppelganger from a preternatural realm, Joanna can feel the Light failing—which is propelling her toward a terrifying confrontation with the ultimate master of evil, the dark lord of Shadow: her father.

Vegas is all about winning big . . . or losing everything. To save her friends, her future, her worlds, Joanna Archer must gamble it all by fully embracing the darkness inside her.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from An OK Read I’ve read the first two in the series and thought they were sort of slow and that the main character has an extremely large amount of bad luck, that hasn’t changed as a matter of fact I think things have gotten incredibly worse for Joanna Archer, the main character. But the series is some what funny, the story line is good and there is enough action in it for me to continue on with the next novels. I’m really hoping to see a little bit of happiness enter Joanna Archer’s life, hopefully sooner rather than latter. I think Joanna has changed for the better in this novel, she’s better with the whole team thing and less selfish. She faced some horrible truths and dealt with them better than she would have in the previous novels. I look forward to seeing her change, not just as a person but also as an agent of the Light, I think she has a lot to offer to her team if they would give her a chance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Keeps Getting Better If the Tulpa is supposed to be the scariest bad ass around.... then it stands to reason we should be petrified when something (or someone) scares even him! And what it turns out to be, while not so scary, makes perfect sense and definitely helps to bring the Zodiacs full circle. There's so much going on in this story and so many levels, that it sort of makes you think Pettersson was just taking a wee stretch in the first two novels. And now, with this third installment, she's ready to take off. A huge part of this was all about Hunter and Ben, which makes sense considering how important they are to Joanna. I love how Ben was written and his complete duality. It's a great thing for Joanna to look at... without realizing that she might be seeing herself. The choices Ben makes are ones that Joanna herself might have made. It's a refreshing way to work home the fact that you don't have to be Shadow and Light to be shadow and light; it's telling us that humans war with themselves in this way all the time. Meanwhile, Hunter is an example of a man scorned. He's that ideal man who sees Joanna's dark side time and time again and somehow it only makes him want her more. He sees how she internally fights with herself and is more confident than she is that she'll come through it all in one piece, and on the right side. But Joanna's repeated rejections of him could lead to some really bad mojo! There's something that really bothered me in the second novel and it's great to see Joanna realize it as well: Warren. I can't help but feel he's really straddling some precipice and there's something shady about him. It's great foreshadowing for the fourth novel and I really believe that would stir things up for the Zodiacs. Could we maybe have a mutiny on our hands?! I hope so; that would prove ever so entertaining! :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best So Far I loved the way that this series has developed, and it just keeps getting better and better. I love the way the characters have changed and adapted and how , in a way, no one is safe when she writes. This book takes you through a rollercoaster of emotions and becomes a question of who Olivia (Jo) can trust. I must say again that i loved this book and i can't wait for the next one to come out.
