Bad Omen by Amir Lane #review
Posted by brriske
NOTE: This book can be read alone but is recommended to be read after Shadow Maker.
Lindy Lindemann always thought she would like to work in a library. Instead, she’s a police dispatcher using her abilities as a precognizant to help the people and feed information to the police when she can. One by one, the high-ranking witches in the city start being picked off, and after every murder, a man identifying himself only as A calls to let her know it’s him.
With the police quickly running out of leads, Lindy is brought in to work with the lead detective, Dick Hobard. Lindy discovers that these killings are connected to the murder of a family that happened over ten years ago. The only problem? The person that Lindy suspects is Staff Sergeant Siobhan Cockburn, the one who brought her into this in the first place.
Now, Lindy not only has to stop A from killing anyone else, but also prove that Cockburn isn’t what she appears before A adds them both to his list.
Bad Omen reminded me of the movie The Call and television show Pretty Little Liars rolled into one with a paranormal twist. This book kept things interesting and flowing with lots of twists to make you think. The German names were a bit difficult and I felt the hero could have been a bit nicer to her partner, a bunch of times she seemed hostile with him because he wasn’t from her “world” when it wasn’t his fault. All in all it was creative, mysterious and suspenseful. Based on content this book is rated for young adults and older. I am an independent reviewer for Romance Authors That Rock and I am giving this book 4 hearts.
