Prodigal Son (The Truthseers)


Prodigal Son. Debra Mullins.

ARC supplied by Netgalley.
I’ve never read any of Debra’s work before so went into this blind. She’s a great writing style though, and I was quickly drawn into the story. It’s paranormal romance, but with a gripping mystery backing the romance and leading the characters into life-threatening danger. Its an interesting twist on the paranormal genre, no vamps or werewolves, no witches or magicians, but ordinary people with an incredible heritage which leaves them with special powers. Rafe is estranged from his family, we don’t know why at the start, just that something went badly wrong, and he felt he had to leave for their safety. His siblings and mother are all Seer’s, being descended from the race that lived on Atlantis. At least that’s his mothers story, incredible though it seems, and she says they are from the only family to escape.. Rafe’s also a Hunter, as was his grandfather, and when the Hunter takes over he does so absolutely, leaving Rafe not in control any more. He’s learned to control the Hunter over the past few years, and only use part of the strength offered by it, and uses his seer powers to become a very successful bounty hunter. He sees the file for Danny, can’t “see” him, which is something that has never happened, and so decides to take the case to find out more about what’s happened to his gift.
He meets Danny’s step-sister Cara, and there’s an immediate searing attraction between them, which both of them fight. Through circumstances though they end up together on a trip to find Danny, and the passion flows into some rivetingly sensual, hot, erotic sex. Of course as well as pleasure that brings complications, especially when Cara starts to see him use more of his powers and won’t be placated with the usual excuses.
Its a fabulous book, the plots flow well, the characters are superb, and the action has just the right amount of drama, no overkill, pages and pages of drawn out descriptions but succinct, and interesting, using ordinary and extraordinary abilities.
I really enjoyed this novel, had me lost within the story, rooting for the good guys, hoping Rafe and Cara could work things out, wondering if Adrian and Tessa(? Rafe’s sister) would get together…there’s a pull there – maybe in a future book? The story is certainly open for more, though I don’t know if a series is intended, I hope so because it has all the elements of an outstanding one, one I’d read and reread 🙂
Its priced at £8.62 for 336 pages, so if that price is correct it is IMO quite expensive, but it’s also such a great read that if you love your romance with some paranormal adventure you may be tempted. You won’t be disappointed in the story, its a great balance of all the elements needed for a riveting read.
Stars: full five, can’t fault this book.

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
