Synopsis

The Secret Gift by Ian Somers

Book three in in the Ross Bentley series Ross has spent the past twelve months in hiding in the west coast of Ireland. He has turned his back on the Guild and his supernatural gifts including an ability to move things with his mind. In trying to escape his past and the dangers brought with his gifts, Ross has spiralled into a world of anxiety and depression and, with Cathy leaving for Paris, Ross is completely alone. Suddenly an unexpected visitor arrives. Hunter has come to call in his favour. Through loneliness and a sense of debt, Ross agrees to join Hunter for one day only. What first appears to be a simple task becomes so much more. Ross is dragged back into the world of the gifted where a supernatural war is about to break loose.
