After a horrific life, John Powell feels he has finally found a place where he belongs. He likes working for the Gypsy Travel Agency especially on Gary White’s team as an operative seeking the lost Chosen. However, In Indonesia his idyllic world with Sun Hee implodes; leaving John once again feeling alone. Despondent, he flees into self exile in the Ural Mountains where he has remained hidden for five years.

Almost a decade ago, Kevin Valente was fired from the Gypsy Travel Agency barely avoiding prison. His family life was destroyed. Now his daughter Genny graduates from grad school and he gives her a present with a stipulation. If she would like to join Koslov’s study team in the Russian Urals to study a rare lynx, Genny must find John the recluse and get him to come in from the cold. She is unaware what she has signed onto when it comes to John which includes peril and her heart.

The third Chosen Ones saga (see Storm of Visions and Storm of Shadows) is an exciting mountain romantic fantasy that grips readers once the heroine heads to Europe. Fast-paced, readers anticipate a triangulation in the Urals as the Others, John and Genny converge with fans wondering who will return to New York City.
