|Plot Summary of Dream Snatcher|
ImaJinn, Apr 2002, 11.50
Psychologist Dr. Anna Stanfield worries about her sister Sandra lying in a coma in a nearby hospital when FBI Agent Ian McGregory accosts her. Ian insists that Sandra is the latest victim of the Chameleon, a serial killer who leaves his targets dead or in a coma.
Anna and her sibling share powerful psychic abilities though the former denies that there is any empirical evidence that ESP exists. However, she admits an attraction to Ian, who is more than just a Fed. Ian is from the near extinct Cintarian race chasing after one of his own kind. As he finds himself falling in love with Anna, he knows that he will risk his life to keep her safe from the Chameleon.
DREAM SNATCHER is an exciting paranormal romance starring strong lead characters and an engaging villain who is a “psychic vampire” feeding off of human emotion mindful of one of the greatest foes Superman ever faced. The story line is so filled with police procedural/serial killer style action that fans of these sub-genres will find the plot satiating yet Shauna Michaels still imbues plenty of romance for that genre's audience. Anna is a wonderful doubter while Ms. Michaels has Ian wrestle with his loyalty to his people vs. his beloved in this refreshing tale that convinces readers that the Cintarian race lives among us.
