Teagan Frost might be getting better at moving sh*t with her mind – but her job working as a telekinetic government operative only ever seems to get harder. That’s not even talking about her car-crash of a love life . . .
And things are about to get even tougher. No sooner has Teagan chased off one psychotic kid hell-bent on trashing the whole West Coast, but now she has to contend with another supernatural being who can harness devastating electrical power. And if Teagan can’t stop him, the whole of Los Angeles will be facing the sh*tstorm of the century…
Buckle up folks. Teagan Frost is back. Following on from The Girl Who Could Move Sh*t With Her Mind (hi, Teagan) and Random Sh*t Flying Through The Air (err, hi again Teagan), we find our psychokinetic heroine up to yet more shenanigans. But that pesky Jackson Ford has cranked the dial all that way up to eleven on the action, peril and snarky internal monologue scales, probably cackling to himself at the same time. Oh, wait. He did that with book 2. Somehow he found the boss-mode setting on those dials.
And I love it.
Teagan and the gang from China Shop are on a white-knuckle ride from page one. This time there’s a new kid on the block, and he’s got a certain set of skills that are literally electric.
The sh*t hits the fan (of course) and the gang find themselves separated and pursuing their own goals. It’s a great chance to see the characters running solo for a while, and gives us a real insight into the team dynamics, and Teagans… complex relationships with them all.
Then there’s that finale – I’m saying nothing, but seriously Jackson? When do we get book four?
Highly recommended, as per usual
