    Outstanding tale!

    "Religion as a human phenomenon is as riddled through with potential for both good and evil as any other phenomenon." -- Richard John Neuhaus "The evil that is in the world almost always comes of ignorance, and good intentions may do as much harm as malevolence if they lack understanding." -- Albert Camus Ignorance. Illiteracy. Hubris and insecurity, mad obsession. "Once upon a time, long ago, in the bad, ignorant, evil times of King James and his Danish queen, there was a great storm. James, an ignorant, religious fool, thought to himself, “Such a storm can only have been caused by witchcraft!” And in his ignorance and fear, he called to himself Roland McHugh, witch hunter, who he placed in charge of a secret society, known as Venatores Mali – Hunters of Evil. And from those savage beginnings there began an age of slaughter, of blood and death of innocents such as hearkened to war. And Roland McHugh spread his evil across Europe, spraying blood and hatred in his path. . . Roland McHugh – who, "according to his Wikipedia entry, “had burned more witches than anyone in history.”" Ignorance. It was, of course, a filthy, superstitious time – a time when the Christian church was doing its best to wipe out any other religion, subsuming beliefs, co opting holidays and celebrations, changing peaceful pagan ritual instruments into Christian tools of torture. And what better victims than those who healed the sick, assisted the elderly and weak, assisted in the birth of children, and stayed by the dying on their way to wherever souls travel? Who worshiped outside, under the stars and moon, often led by women, instead of in a cathedral, led by men – men who wanted to control everything from medicine to beliefs to (most importantly) wealth? What else to do but declare them evil? But even now, the Venatores Mali have returned, slashing a path of fire and slaughter in their wake. The slaughter of Wiccans. Wiccans – whose one main belief, one true calling and law, is Do No Harm. The murders are horrific, murders of men, women, children. All slaughtered, all burned to some degree. Horrific actions, all carried out in the name of McHugh. Of the Vanatores Mali. Of a god who I would hope would shudder and turn her head away from what is being carried out in her name. But who must, certainly, no longer care, or no longer even watch. Why else such a nightmare of a world? Raye Larsen is the very definition of a foundling. She was found tossed on the side of a highway, no clothing, no blanket – simply a tiny infant, left beside the road to die. Adopted by the Larsen’s, a good New Bergin, Wisconsin family, Raye never knew who left her by the side of the road. She never knew why she saw ghosts. She did, however, know that her ‘father’ told her ‘mother’ one night, after Raye had once again been caught talking to someone who wasn’t visible, “Take her to a psychiatrist?” my father repeated. “I was thinking of taking her back.” Talk about feelings of inadequacy, of fear, and loneliness, of an incessant need to please. “If I wasn’t “right” I could be returned like a broken chair or a moldy loaf of bread.” What a terrible way to live, always fearful that the only family you have ever known could throw you away like trash. So, she stopped, as best she could, interacting with ghosts. But now, someone is trying to kill Raye. Someone who has already killed one woman in New Bergin. In fact, they have tried to kill her twice. And when a New Orleans detective, Bobby Doucet, shows up in New Bergin to verify a strange brand on the neck of the first victim, to verify that the serial killer who struck New Orleans a year ago is now killing again, far to the North of NOLA, the deaths fall hard and fast. There are things Raye knows – things she can’t tell Bobby. Bobby, who thinks anyone who is determined that, “The dead don’t come back… Anyone who says so is a liar. Probably a thief and a charlatan too.” And as things become more and more tense, more dangerous, Bobby Doucet’s prejudice may just be the death of both of them. Bobby’s pure, pigheaded stubbornness was the only thing about the book that really irritated me. As you get into the book you realize what caused his disbelief, and you can’t help but hurt for him. But when you get hit over the head several times and still don’t understand that someone is standing behind you hitting you on the head with a 2”x4”, well, I still stayed irritated at him. Honestly, I adored this book. I did it in one sitting (yes, it flippin’ rained again today – downpour, lightning, thunder, the whole nine yards. Oregon wasn’t this wet.) and finished at 2AM. They are all three up on Amazon (three sisters, three stories – though no one knows where the youngest sister ‘landed’ as of this book.) I love it. Raye is believable in her reactions to everything, the ghosts are awesome, and the Evil just that – believably evil. I received this book from the publisher in exchange for a realistic review.

    wow what a great start

    I received this book for the purpose of an honest review. I have to start off by saying that I'm not normally a fan of first person stories, but Lori Handeland is an exception to that rule. Her stories have first person moments but there are third person as well and somehow it works. I'm not sure how. It just does. With IN THE AIR TONIGHT we start a new series, fans of Ms. Handeland's NightCreature Novels will find another set of characters to adore and cheer on. This is the story of one girl, one from a set of triplets. We walk with Raye as she learns who she is, and where she came from. Bobby is the other half of this story, he's haunted in more ways than one and we watch as he comes to understand his place, not just in life but in Raye's life. I have to say the characters were engaging, realistic and completely wonderfully well written. They quickly become "real". The setting is fun and fascinating, I found I wanted to visit the location myself! The story is fast paced, thrilling, at times funny, at times heart wrenching but always enjoyable. Fans of Lori Handeland's Nightcreature Novels know that Lori Handeland always delivers with great stories and characters, and they may just recognize a few. Those new to Lori Handeland will find a great novel to start their journey into her worlds. The story is one that will leave you eager for the next books! I'm already stressing over the wait for books 2 and 3. In The Air Tonight is a great read, I highly recommend for any paranormal contemporary romance fan!

    Fantastic first in a series!!!

    Have you ever been so excited after reading a book that you want to jump up and fist pump the air? Yes! That's how I felt after reading this book. Lori Handeland has done it again! Amazing beginning to a fantastic new series about a witch that didn't know she was a witch until witchhunters started trying to kill her. In this fantastic story, Raye Larsen finds out a whole lot of things she never knew about herself because she was adopted. She'd been abandoned, in a ditch, on the side of the road as an infant. At least that's what had appeared to have happened. After secrets she didn't even know about were revealed, her life finally starts to make sense. Will the sexy police detective from NOLA be able to deal with it all or will he run fast and far from all the woo woo stuff happening in this little Scandinavian town in Wisconsin? I highly recommend this awesome book/series to anyone who loves a good paranormal mystery romance. There's also a totally unexpected but welcome surprise, towards the end of the book, for all of us loyal fans of this extremely talented author. If you have never read any of this authors previous paranormal books, have no fear, it will all still make sense to you. I loved reading this book and I am super excited to read the next one. Received a copy in exchange for an honest review.

    looking forward to the next one soon

    I have been a Lori Handeland fan forever. I have read and reread her books because they are so enjoyable. Therefore I was THRILLED to receive an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. This book has everything I look for in a book--a suspenseful plot, characters I could love or hate, humor, and a love story. Raye Larsen, our heroine, can see and talk to ghosts. Some she can persuade to move on, others just watch silently and a few (a child ghost called Stafford) cause mischief. Raye has learned not to let people see her communicating with the ghosts but a few people are aware she knows things she shouldn't. Then a strange murder occurs in the little town where Raye lives and the police called in the FBI who connects the case with several cold cases being worked by Bobby Doucet in New Orleans. Bobby arrives just in time to save Raye from the murderer and the game is on. Can Bobby adjust to small town life and deal with a woman who sees ghosts? Who is the ghost Raye sees who looks like a Puritan? Is herding cattle part of the police work required here? Tune in to find out more!
