Nikki Jeffries is embarking on a new phase of her life. She is leaving her parents’ home and moving to New Hampshire to write a book about ghosts and hauntings. She has no luck, until the innkeeper’s cousin Rick takes her to a particularly haunted cemetery - the same graveyard that has been in her dreams for years.

Rick is what is known as a sensitive. He senses that Nikki is far more than just a beautiful woman looking to write about ghosts. The last time he became so deeply involved in a case, it almost destroyed him. But he will do anything to keep Nikki safe.

An experiment at a genetic research facility in the White Mountains of New Hampshire goes horribly wrong, leaving a Dawn Lord dead, a Shadow Lord terribly injured, and two pregnant women missing. Twenty-three years later the same scientist is determined to try again, not caring that he is upsetting the balance of the universe, possibly causing the end of the world.

This is a really involving novel featuring a woman determined to find herself, and she certainly does, becoming a creature of legend. Both the New Hampshire countryside and the Shadow Lands are vividly described, especially the haunted house which stood in both. The subplot involving the house was as good as the main story line. The characters were equally vivid, the villains evil, and Nikki’s friends willful and colorful. This is a very gripping read.
