Last year Abigail Black’s life was turned upside down. Her parents were killed, her abusive boyfriend was chasing her, and she found out that the place she had been dreaming about since she was a small child was real. A Civil War plantation – Collier.  It’s a magical place, guarded by Immortal’s who also haunted her dreams. Now she knows why. She’s a Keeper, those chosen to guard the Gates, portals between time and space.
This year with a brand new family, new Gates and Keepers are being revealed. And treasured artifacts must be saved. There have always been those who wish to control the Gates for their own purposes. This time Abbi is confronted not only by an old enemy, but an unexpected new one. Follow Abbi on another incredible journey, full of magic, intrigue and shocking surprises as she battles evil in order to protect the portals between time and space.

My take...
Abbi with her new family and new friends are back at it again searching for Keepers. Power starts off right away with Bill having a dream and soon they are off looking for this new Keeper before the evil demon, Tisha, can get to them first. But it doesn’t stop there, more and more Keepers are being awakened; and the group must find them before the Gates are jeopardized and lives are lost. The big question raised in the story: who can you trust?
Oh goodness, I was more blown away with Power than I was with Collier. And I loved Collier so that’s saying something. Loraine worked her literary magic and created another fast paced read that oozed action and suspense. I was so glad to see that Abbi and Bill played another big role in Power; but happy that new characters were introduced too. With so many great characters, Loraine can do so much with this series, the prospects are endless.
Power had me smiling, it had me near tears and it had me so stunned with certain twists. Tense plots and an action filled storyline had me reading, eager to reach the ending. With evil so strong in the world, who can you trust? Well looks like you’re just going to have to read to find out. Phantom Lives: Power is a must read for anyone who fancies supernatural elements, mystery and suspense.
