Jayne Castle 'Silver Master'

Jayne Castle aka Jayne Ann Krentz aka Amanda Quick is a very good writer. She has a decent formula where the two protagonists team up to solve some sort of mystery/crime/murder. In this case the story is set in a future colony on another planet. The major change here is the psychic abilities that humans have developed on this planet.

If you like Castle's stories, this one's very acceptable but like many of her books, the romance, sexual tension and development of an attraction between the two main characters is lacking. The new world and the plot are distractingly entertaining, but that's not enough for me.

Paranormal Futuristic Romance 2007: 3 out of 5 stars.

You're really rip-roaring along with the reviews--nice!

I have a request. Please review a paranormal historical sci-fi horror tragi-comedic romance novel in the near future. Thanks.

Um, does Harry Potter count? I mean can't any self respecting English major explicate any categorization of any remotely decent piece of literature?

Oh, I think I heard a gauntlet drop!
