As a retired librarian, Yvonne finally has time to read! She enjoys sharing some of her favorite books and media with friends.

Arcane Society Series by Amanda Quick

Second Sight by Amanda Quick had been sitting on my bedside table for a couple of weeks. I started to read it several times, but something always stopped me. It is a paranormal romance which is set during Victorian times.

A friend of mine and fellow Squidoo lensmaster, ElizabethJeanAllen, introduced me to the world of the Arcane Society by recommending Jayne Ann Krentz's White Lies, when the latest Nora Roberts wasn't to my liking. I started reading the Arcane Society novels in reverse order, the more recent ones first, then went back to the beginning. That's why I'm just now getting to Second Sight, which is actually the first in the series.

Another of the other Arcane Society books that I really enjoyed was Fired Up which is the first of the new Dreamlight Trilogy. Like the other Arcane Society books, some of the Dreamlight trilogy is set during Victorian times and some in modern time.

You may also enjoy the newest, Looking Glass Trilogy book, from Jayne Ann Krentz, called In Too Deep. The mysterious, powerful lamp, dreamlight readers, Jones and Jones Investigation and the Winters' clan are prominent in this series of paranormal romance mysteries.

Many deadly poisons were used to develop photographs during Victorian times.... a murder waiting to happen, me thinks.

Jayne Ann Krentz and the Arcane Society Vid

The author tells you a little about Second Sight and the other Arcane Society books. Wow, this makes you want to pick the book back up from the night stand and READ.

About Jayne Ann Krentz

Jayne Ann Krentz writes under her own name and several pen names, including Amanda Quick and Jayne Castle.

Her Arcane Society novels are my favorite. When I want to relax and get away from the real world for a while, I enjoy books about people with paranormal abilities and mysteries with a little romance.

These books have all three.

Fired Up - Dreamlight Trilogy Book 1 - Jayne Ann Krentz

Fired Up, the first of the Dreamlight Trilogy takes place in modern times. When a gifted but dangerous man seeks the help of an equally gifted female private detective to find a missing family artifact which looks like an odd, vase like lamp, things really start to heat up in more ways than one.

If you like a bit of the paranormal and a good detective story, then you'll enjoy the Dreamlight Trilogy books.

In Too Deep Book 1 of the Looking Glass Trilogy

There's a new Arcane Society Trilogy in town. The Looking Glass Trilogy continues with the Jones clan of talents and J and J Investigation Agency. The first book, "In Too Deep", features Fallon Jones, head of J and J and his new assistant and investigator, Isabella Valdez.

This mystery paranormal romance is one that you'll want to read.

      This last year, I've been working on punttig myself more into my book, my own unique voice, just as you say, and I think it's made a big difference. Because my writing is so tight, I wasn't punttig enough of my voice in it before that. And I love JAK's world view, it all her subgenres.

      Perhaps some great wrirtes don't need to input their world view in what they write, but if so, I haven't read them. Some wrirtes may be more subtle about it than others, but it's there. IMHO, of course. As our life opens to new things, our world view likely will expand. This expansion may not appeal to some readers but maybe that's because they haven't gotten there yet.:-)Very thoughtful topic

      This sounds like a most interesting book -- like paranormal subjects. My next book is Reality Check.
