    Into the Abyss by Dale Mayer is book 10 in her Psychic Visions Series. This was the first book I've read by this author and I probably should have read the previous ones as at times I felt a bit "lost" in this story. There were characters that made an appearance that I didn't know where they fitted inHowever, this is a minor "moan" and it didn't stop me from enjoying the story.I found the main characters, Tavika Bantrell, homicide detective with psychic powers which she's trying to keep hidden from everyone, is suddenly thrown back in time...when her family had been murdered and their killer never found and Jericho Sands, a psychic hunter, who contacts her about the serial killer, known as the GHOST, very interesting.Despite him offering her his help, Tavi is determined not to have anything to do with Jericho.I enjoyed the premise of this series....psychic abilities to help in finding killers and bringing them to justice.Suspense, twists and turns that keep you guessing until the very end.After finishing this book, I am definitely going to read the entire series next.I was given a free copy by the author for an honest review.

    Wow, this series just keeps getting better with each new addition. If you are a fan of Ms. Mayer you know she writes stories that not only entertain but captivate you right from the start. Awesome character's pave the way for a complex suspense storyline that is sure to keep you on your toes. While there is a romance it is not the main focus of the storyline. It seemed to me that the underlying themes was facing your fears, believing in yourself and accepting who you are. As the tale develops we see things from more than one perspective, the killer, Tavi and Jericho. While Tavi and Jericho search for our allusive bad guy, he in turn is watching them keeping the reader engaged in trying to figure out who he is before our main characters do. The overlapping of characters from previous books keeps the connection strong enforcing that sometimes having others to rely on is a good thing. The author throws in several twists and turns enhancing the plot and leaving you revising your judgement on who is the guilty party. This is definitely a page turner, so if you are like me and have to finish what you start reading leave plenty of time as once you start you will not be able to put it down. I volunteered to read this story for my honest opinion, 5 stars all the way.

    An intense, captivating psychic paranormal read…This is the tenth book in the Psychic Visions series.At the tender age of twelve Tavika (Tavi) Bantrell become the lone surviving member of a psychic family murdered by a serial killer who was never caught. Though severely traumatized she survived and now twenty years later she’s a Detective for the Portland Police with an impressive track record. She has no life outside of work, her sole focus: to find answers behind what happened to her family and exact revenge against their killer. What psychic abilities she has were developed on her own as a matter of necessity to her survival, she keeps them hidden to protect herself. That she was spared is an enigma that the ghosts of the past can’t or won’t answer but as ghosts don’t always rest neither do serial killers. Someday the killer might try to rectify the mistake of leaving her alive and she’ll be there waiting. The arrival of a psychic hunter that she feels a strong sexual attraction toward is an unwanted complication/distraction but also warns her that the time is nearing for a showdown.Private Investigator Jericho Sands is hunting a serial killer who has eluded capture for years and the trail has led him to Portland. His precognitive abilities have shown him that the next victim is Tavika. Researching her history did not prepare him for the reality of the woman, untrained psychic abilities so strong and clearly visible to one like him and an unwanted beacon to others out to do her harm. Convincing her that he can help won’t be easy, she doesn’t trust psychics but he’s not losing this killer or her. She’s a remarkable woman with many layers besides their chemistry that draw him. An amazing story! This was an intense, captivating psychic paranormal read that drew me in from page one with a thrilling storyline filled with lots of action and suspense and a convoluted mystery that had me guessing until the very end. The multiple points of view including that of the killer whose identity eludes the reader for so long enhanced the intrigue. Tavi and Jericho were great characters, easy to get invested in. I liked how their relationship slowly developed, the romance taking a back seat to the events transpiring which was fitting for this storyline. The resulting trauma of the heroine was so relatable, how a person could withdraw into their mind deeply to find a place of safety, setting up emotional barriers to survive which would then carry over to all aspects of their life. I loved Tavi’s Maine Coon companion. As always it’s great to see cameos from other characters in the series.An advanced reading copy was obtained from the author.

    Well, Psychic Visions series is my most favourite series of all Dale Mayer’s works. This book made a great additional to the series. The story was about two psychics, one of them very strong yet untrained. Detective Tavika Bantrell has gone through a very traumatic event as a child as her family was killed by a serial killer. Private Investigator Jericho Sands, who was also psychic hunter, has been chasing a serial killer for some times, and his ability showed him that the next victim would be Det. Tavi. They were both surprised by the explosive attraction between them, but to be together they had to defeat the demon, both from outside and inside.As her other Psychic Visions books, this one was fast paced, suspenseful, intriguing, and sexy. Point of view from the villain’s side added to the suspense feeling. Both main characters were great, complex characters with their own demons. I was so easily related to them, made me invested in their happiness. Overall, a wonderfully enjoyable read. Psychic novel was not easy to find, especially one at this calibre.I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book, and I always give honest review.

    I've read a few of the psychic visions novels, but this is the first one that has had so many twist and turns in it.Tavi was rescued with everyone else in her family was murdered.

But now the murder is back and Tavi knows her time is up. Her only hope is that she takes him with her.Jericho has been following the Ghost for years, trying to catch him. Unfortunately his visions of the future haven't enabled him to find abd capture him. Now the visions show him something has changed and the Ghost is after Tavi. But Tavi doesn't want to listen to that, so he is left with little choice but to protect her anyway. Besides his visions tell him they end up in bed together and he can't wait.Can Jericho and Tavi catch the Ghost, while they look for a kidnapped little girl and try to solve the murder of another teenage girl? Or will the Ghost taken them all down?

    What a great read!! I haven't read many books about people with psychic abilities but this one takes the cake. It was fraught with danger as a serial killer starts cleaning up. Tavika is a cop and seems to enjoy being one. She's also psychic with some major powers being squelched somewhat unconsciously. Jericho is also psychic, but he hates the precinct and dealing with cops. And yet, he waltzes in to Tavika's to warn her that she's on the killer's list. Because he's determine to protect her, he shoves his way into her life, breaking through the walls she keeps up. But the serial killer is leaving a trail of blood with little evidence. And time is running out. This is book 10 in this series and although I have not read the entire series, I kept up with what was going on very easily.

    At a young age, Tavika tragically lost her family and spent a week being held captive. Since then, she's kept everyone at a distance, making her appear standoffish, yet no one realizes it's a defense mechanism. She can't risk ever feeling that pain again. No, her family wasn't that loving and didn't treat her as they should've, but they were still hers. She makes sure her abilities aren't known by anyone. However, that means she too is unaware of just how powerful she is.Jericho is a hunter. He's been after a particular serial killer for years and now he believes he's caught his scent again. When Jericho realizes the next intended victim is a detective, he arranges a meeting with her. He has a feeling this woman has some psychic powers, yet she acts as if she doesn't and ignores his warning.They're both immediately attracted to one another, but she wants him to leave her alone and he can do anything but. As these two begin working together, reluctantly at first on Tavika's part, not only can't they ignore their connection, but Jericho can also see Tavika is struggling in more ways than one.What happens when Jericho and Tavika get closer to the killer's identity? Can they stop others from becoming victims? Can Jericho keep Tavika safe? Is the serial killer they're hunting the same one that murdered Tavika's family? Is he closer than Jericho and Tavika know? Can Jericho, with Stefan's help, educate Tavika with controlling her abilities? Will Tavika ever find peace from her past? Is there a future for Jericho and Tavika?One-click now and follow along as two people with psychic abilities, one helping the other to accept what they can do, search for a killer and discover a love that neither ever thought they'd have. Please keep in mind this is book ten in the series and while it could be read as a standalone, I suggest reading them in order for the sake of continuity.**I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book.**

    I received this book in exchange for an honest review.This is not normally a book I would have chosen to read - paranormal, fantasy, crime, thriller? However, I may now have to go back and read the others in the series to see what I have been missing out on!This book is written very well, I havent read anything else by this author and this was the first book I have read from this series, and while I 'got' that there was history between certain characters, it didnt detract from my enjoyment of the book that I didnt know the back story.This book twirled together several really good elements. Firstly, its a good cop story, serial killer, catch-the-bad-guy story. Add to that the cop who is doing the chasing was actually a victim many years ago - this makes it personal. Sprinkle in some psychic ability (that has not yet been properly harnessed), some hot side kicks (who can see the future) and a dab of romance - and you have yourself a really interesting book.I liked that our heroine was kind of flawed. And she tried so hard to push down all her emotions. I loved that Jericho and Stefan both helped her to heal. I hated her mother (in life and in death she seemed revolting!) and I found the character of the serial killer fascinating and complex. This book turned a predictable cop gets bad guy plot into something drak and twisted and quite the emotional rollercoaster. I enjoyed the ride!Definitely recommend...but probably best if you start from Book 1.

    Once again Dale has written a phenomenal book and it is a good addition to the series.This is a story of a girl that had the worst thing ever happen to her, the death of her family whilst she was young has had a profound impact on Tavi and is the reason why she went into her profession, she is a homicide detective (that is also psychic, she is hiding this fact from her coworkers) and in this story she manages to get the attention of Jericho (our other psychic). We also get visits from my personal favourite (Stefan), and Maddy.Tavi’s life is interesting and I love how Jericho interacts with her and how he understands her trials and dilemmas.Jericho is hunting for the same man that is hunting Tavi (the man that killed her family) he is back to tie up some loose ends and poor Tavi is amongst that list. HE let her get away once as he thought she was not like the rest of her family they had the potential to be a very strong psychic family before they had their life’s ended.Tavi has an outstanding police record (being psychic definitely helps you get your man haha), she is as hard as nails and I feel that she could come across as abrasive and cocky. I feel that this is a good match (couple-wise) as you see a softer side to Tavi when she is with Jericho.I love how she interacts with her brother and I really disliked her mother (even in death she came across as a real bitter and jealous woman).If I was you I would start this series from the beginning, you really wont regret it.

    >Book review – Into the Abyss>I am an independent reviewer. This book is the tenth book in the Psychic Visions series and end with an HEA. This story has it all – romance, suspense and a paranormal twist. Tavika is a cop who survived her family’s murder by a serial killer when she was a child. Her whole life’s pursuit is to find this killer. Tav is an untrained, yet powerful psychic. She attracts the attention of Stephen, from previous books and Jericho. Jericho is sent to watch over Tav and falls for her along the way.>The series of murders lead Tav and Jericho on a quest to figure out who is behind all the violence. The author uses misdirection and a few red herrings to throw the reader off until the very end with the big reveal. Who was real and who was dead was surprising as well. A lot of the story is Tavika learning about her powers and learning to trust again. The story bogged down in the scenes with descriptions on her feelings being psychically released.>All of the psychic events were interesting, but a bit unbelievable. No one truly understands psychic power, so anything can be possible. This story used the psychic possibilities to the point of ridiculousness. No one really needed to go anywhere, they could just ‘spirit walk’ and be present as a ghost.> This book is appropriate for an adult audience. I am giving this book 4 stars. I felt the book delved into magic instead of realistic psychic abilities.

    Wow just wow. If you never read any of Dale Mayer’s books, well you have no clue what our missing. So let me tell you. First they are extremely well written. Two, they are thoroughly thought out. Three they are just freaking awesome and that’s not all. She has a way of dragging you in and holding you hostage till the end. And it so worth the ride, you will go back for more when her next book is out.This is the 10th book in her Psychic visions series of books. This one is about Tavika. She is a detective and a badass at that. She closes more cases than anyone in her department. That is because she has an edge. One she is not really that aware of she is Psychic she just hides it well. She has a shield she has built around herself. And it has protected her till now. The Ghost the serial killer that killed her family is back. And she has no idea why she was saved or he is. Then she is approached by Jericho a Hunter who has been after the Ghost for a long time. But he is also psychic too and is not sure how Tavi has gone this long denying her gifts. She is truly amazing in his eyes, but he is a pre-cog and he has seen her death and is determined to change he fate. As you go you get snippets of the Ghost but man oh man when you find out who it is it will really shock you. I thought I had it figured out, but man was I wrong.Now before I ruin this for you I will leave off here. I hope you enjoy this book as much as I did. If you do like this book, please consider leaving a review. The Authors really like it when you do; they value your opinions too.

    I just love how each book in this series is so different from the next, you would think there would be a point in the series like most others books that have a long series where things start to get repetitive but nope not here!I loved Tavi's character, she is a strong women but hides her true self from others and won't let herself be who she is, then along comes Jericho and many feelings she has pushed down and locked away start to come to the surface. Both she and Jericho are after the same killer but for different reasons,Jericho is a precog and has been tracking Ghost for some time where as Tavi wants to catch Ghost as he killed her family.Some fantastic twists and turns that keep you glued to the book and wanting more when it ends.Counting down to the next book in this series ! I was given a complimentary copy of this book to provide an honest review for The Assassin's reading reviewing group.

    A Thrilling JourneyThis is my 10th Psychic Visions read. I love, love, love these books. Dale Mayer skillfully crafts stories that introduce the reader to possibilities beyond the physical world we live in. Into the Abyss follows a cop who is searching for a serial killer nicknamed the Ghost. As a young girl, her family was murdered by the Ghost. The book takes her on a journey of self-discovery where she learns more about her abilities and finds love when she least expects or wants it. The cast of characters include favorites from other Psychic Visions books as well as new characters who use their psychic skills to fight evil. By the end of the book, I was still trying to guess the identity of the Ghost.I highly recommend this book and all the other books in this series. I am so looking forward to the next book in the series that I have already preordered it. Enjoy!

    Tavi is looking for the person who killed her family. Jericho is also search for the same man, they call him The Ghost. Tavi does not understand all of the psychic abilities she has and Jericho is sure that she has only touched the surface of them. Mean while her dead family keeps trying to make her give up looking for the man because he is also watching and waiting for Tavi. Can Tavi catch the Ghost before he catches her and can Jericho save her before the Ghost kills her. Another one worth the read from Dale Mayer. Thank you for the advanced copy.

    *voluntarily and honestly reviewed this ARC I received from the author's PR*Like a 4.5 for me.It's been a while since I've been entirely gripped in the psychic visions, but this book was really great! I totally clicked with it and enjoyed Tavi and Jericho's POV. Jericho was hilarious, Tavi was an interesting and complex character that kept me on my toes (and my temper at bay when she got really stubborn) and though the ending seemed to drag just a bit, I was still overall entertained with the plot, and really liked the characters.

    Very dark all the way through.I love this series, but this one was harder to get through as there wasn't anything positive to hope for in the beginning, if only giving the cat more personality. But the storyline finally caught hold, and the need to finish the book.

    Rating: 4 stars**This e-ARC was sent to me by the author in exchange for an honest review**I really enjoyed this book. Tavika is a complex character with many flaws and nuances that made her seem real and believable. I also enjoyed Jericho and what he brought to the story. The multiple point of views and the glimpses into the Ghost's psyche was intriguing and it made me want to keep on reading to find out his identity. While this was a paranormal romance, the romance was developed slowly and it didn't overshadow the main plot of the story. Mayer's writing style was compelling and it had me hooked on page one. Add the action and the suspense in this book and it made this novel a very enjoyable read. It also made me want to read the rest of the series and the author's other books in the future.

    I generally do not get into paranormal/psychic type books but I have read all the books in this series and have to say I am hooked. Into the Abyss is not exception. Read it in two days could not put it down. This one was a little more gritty and fell in line with my typical crime drama reading I usually gravitate toward. I loved how she navigated the story of the primary characters and how their past molded them to who they are today. Great read and highly recommend.

    *I RECEIVED THIS BOOK IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW*This is the 10th installment in the series and it does not disappoint. This story is about Tavika, a detective and psychic, and her hunt for a serial killer. Tavi has personal reasons for seeing this guy caught and it makes following the story all that more interesting. Jericho, who is also psychic, is also hunting the same killer. I love the mystery aspect of each story. It keeps you on the edge of your seat to the very end of the book. I also like that even though each story is about psychics they aren't recycled storylines. Each psychic has a different ability. Tavi has abilities that Stephan has never seen and the things she could do were amazing. There is always romance but it's just enough, the author never over does it. I really enjoy this series. It keeps growing and getting better. I highly recommend it!

    **ARC RECEIVED IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW**I read many of the books in this series, unfortunately out of order since most have been ARCs. Nevertheless, this particular one is by far my favorite!It was very engaging with page turning mystery and a host of familiar and lovable characters! I'm so glad this book finally reveals who The Ghost is and he gets what he deserves, though there were a few things and people involved that I did not see coming. Sad that Tavika's mother was such a cold hearted bitch. What parent prefers one child over another is just twisted and her mum was right, she just wasn't meant to be a mother, yet she was blessed with four kids...go figure!

    I voluntarily Reviewed a complimentary ARC of this book. Tavika was just a little 12 yr old little girl when her family consisting of her, Mother, Sister, Brother we're murdered in front of her by the serial killer she was kidnapped for his own sick minded ideas of torture. He let her live and after 25 yrs later he's decided to tie up all loose ends so he can start a new life an she's on his list. Tavika now all grown up an is a detective who is also a psychic and has put tons of cases solved and closed except for her own.while hiding her feelings in her work as law enforcement she's determined to get answers and have revenge. Jericho is a pre-cog and is a hunter he's been searching for the ghost on his own until his visions lead him to tavika the ghosts next victim. But tavika has a little to much stubborn attitude for her own good and has a impressive track record for getting her man.Also helping Jericho is Stefan and doctor maddy from previous books in the series this is not a stand alone story I highly recommend reading the rest of the series to understand about the chapters better.Will Jericho and Tavika catch the killer before he kills her.
