Book Review: The Messenger by Jan Burke

Title: The Messenger: A Novel
Author: Jan Burke
Rating: *****
Tags: paranormal, ghosts, evil, telepathy

This is one of the most original books I have ever read, and one of the best. Tyler Hawthorne is a Messenger. He is immortal, and hears in his head those who are unconscious, dying, and have messages for their loved ones. The one from whom he took over this gift is totally evil, was neutralized but now is coming back. Meanwhile Tyler has met Amanda, and is drawn to her as he hasn't been to anyone in many years.

I'm having a good month... a new S. J. Rozan, this terrific book by Jan Burke, and my discovery of Glen David Gold. Woo-hoo!
