This is book 6 of the Ghost Hunters fantasy series but, as with the others, it can stand alone. It's as good as the others.
Independent amber tuner Lyra Dore had found amethyst ruins, a very important find. She can tune amethyst, which most tuners can't.
The 'love-of-her-life', Amber Inc. CEO Cruz Sweetwater, takes it over! He knows that she is his true love, but she won't see him or talk to him and sues, although she loses and is broke. However, her dust bunny paints. She and a very close friend who own an art gallery, have been selling the paintings as by a very reclusive artist.
Three months later, he calls on her to open a psychic door that has trapped 5 men in the ruins. He knows she won't let people die, regardless of how mad and hurt she is. She does it and they find the five people alive.
They start dating again. She's afraid she's going crazy, as she has spells where things start morphing and she can't walk or move. Her Harmonic Meditation instructor senses something has upset her, and offers to help. She assures him that she is OK.
She evaluates an amethyst piece for a buyer at an auction, and tells him that it's nice, but not powerful. The gallery owner says he has another piece and takes them into a locked room, and starts to hand it to them. Cruz comes in and interrupts. She has sensed that it is one of the artifacts that was in the ruin.
Cruz wears obsidian amber, another rare amber. He 'shatters' his amber protecting her from an attack and collapses. When help arrives, she refuses to let go of his hand, and wards off his losing all his psychic senses.
The dealer gets murdered. The head of Amber,Inc's lab is found dead, with the artifact. Cruz feels that it is just too neat. He's right.
Lots more to the story: a very sneaky villain; a bunch of mischievous dust bunnies; family feuds; a love story. It has them all.
If you like fantasy and mystery, you'll love this book. (I did!)
