In a Nutshell: Paranormal powers * High-octane action * Hunt for happy-endings

Step into the shadowy world of the Savants in this sixth installment of a series that oozes intrigue, action and romance.

To set the scene for the uninitiated, the Savants possess gifts of extra sensory perception. They’re all telepathic, and each also has an additional individual ability. When they're conceived, someone else, somewhere else in the world, receives a gift that can complete their power. Summer's gift is that of reading minds. She can even take over the minds of others if her will is stronger.

When Summer's friend Victor goes missing (his FBI bosses suspect that he’s gone rogue in Afghanistan), she undertakes a risky mission to find him. Enter straight-talking, macho soldier Hal Robinson, who's been tasked with the same assignment. While caught in this maelstrom of dangerous circumstances and unfamiliar, vividly evoked surroundings, Summer and Hal might just be about to discover that there’s truth in the old adage that opposites attract…

With its snappy, sassy storyline and satisfying real-world references to the likes of YouTube and the untold agony that can come from wearing heels, this energetic novel comes highly recommended to readers who like their fantasy fast and feisty. ~ Joanne Owen


Summer Shadows by Joss Stirling

Amongst the secret and lies, will love survive? Summer lives under a terrible shadow. It drains her, manipulates her and threatens to steal her future. A high-stakes mission offers a temporary escape. She must use her mind-shadowing abilities to hunt down her target and find the truth. Hal Robinson is a soldier. He does not get distracted. He wins. But what Hal wants begins to shift once he meets Summer. They must learn to trust each other if they are going to protect the Savant community. But will their secrets allow them to find a happy ending of their own?

A stunning new novel from the best-selling author of Finding Sky, Stealing Phoenix, and Seeking Crystal. Heart-pounding romance from the recipient of the 2015 Romantic Novel of the Year Award, mixed with a thrilling mystery and a spine-tingling hint of the supernatural, Summer Shadows is perfect for fans of Maggie Stiefvater, Meg Cabot, and Josephine Angelini.

About the Author

Joss Stirling

Joss Stirling studied English at Cambridge and has always been fascinated by the idea that life is more than what we see on the surface. Researching Finding Sky saw her travelling in the characters' footsteps, from the awe-inspiring landscape of the Rockies, down a white-water river on a raft, and to the artificial pleasures of Las Vegas. Stealing Phoenix followed - to widespread acclaim - and her most recent novel, Seeking Crystal, was published in 2012.
