Four years ago as they both slept, Kaylin Dancroft’s sister, Jenna, was kidnapped from their bedroom. Although she tried to stop the abduction and was knocked unconscious in the process, Kaylin feels incredibly guilty about the abduction. She has been trying to remember any clue no matter how small to lead her to Jenn, whom she believes is still alive.
Kaylin has clairvoyant abilities and has had dreams about the night her sister was taken. These dreams terrify Kaylin, but when she awakens from them she can’t remember enough to help locate her sister.
Kaylin’s mother has given up hope of ever finding Jenna alive, but her father still believes she’s out there somewhere. That’s why he hired psychic Shane Lynch to try and help Kaylin analyze and remember her dreams. Her father’s hope is that perhaps Shane will be able to see what Kaylin sees and together the two can bring Jenna home.
Kaylin is reluctant at first, but when Shane’s presence seems to help her remember what she dreams she is willing to try anything to find her sister. As more clues are revealed will she be able to totally trust Shane with her life and her sister’s?
On The Edge is a very different book for Susan Kearney, but she handles it quite well. She makes the reader believe in the characters' psychic abilities and reveals just enough clues to keep her readers turning the pages and on the edge of their seats from beginning to end. This is a book you won’t want to miss.
Auras are one of the things Shane uses to help unlock the keys to Jenna’s disappearance from Kaylin’s dreams. There is a fascinating bonus feature explaining auras in depth at the back of the book.
I have come to love Susan Kearney’s writing because she is an author who’s not afraid to take chances with her writing. On The Edge is a perfect example of this and will leave readers wanting more from this talented writer. I for one certainly hope Ms Kearney will pen more stories like this one.
