    One thought on “The Hot Zone”

    1. Yeah, don't even bother trying to read this book unless you have finished all your pre-req's. It's impossible to understand what is going on unless you've done your reading.Seriously, NASA? Who's the asshole who put this poor dog in space? Sure, it's adorable, but I'm still going to call PETA on you!The absolute best thing about this series is the Dust Bunnies. Here is their description:He looked like a large ball of fuzzy dryer lint studded with a pair of baby blue eyes. There were six paws and [...]

    2. Disclosure: Jayne Castle (aka Jayne Ann Krentz) and I are friends. More disclosure: We met about 10 years ago when I moved to the Pacific NW. She's been my favorite writer for much, much longer than that. That said, the advantage to being Jayne's friend is that I whined enough she gave me an arc of THE HOT ZONE. Jayne calls the book, "Halloween on Rainshadow," and that's just right — Halloween is made for Rainshadow Island where the residents are eccentric, spooky new monsters are popping up o [...]

    3. The story begins with Lyle - the dust bunny rescuing our h- Sedona Snow. Her name is similar to a Marvel Superheros and she lives upto it. Sedona is a Gatekeeper, she can open and close the gates of The Underworld.She was kidnapped during a mission, now she is held prisoner by a doctor who experiments on her. After the Sweet Escape, Sedona moves to Rainshadow so she can live on her own terms.“Suddenly I seem to be very popular. Like I said, it makes me nervous.”Cyrus Jones is the Guild Boss [...]

    4. Much of a muchness with the others in the series. Castle does actually offer a certain amount of new invention, but it tends to be spread parsimoniously over several books instead of concentrated in one. Science fantasy, I guess, though hard to categorize. The supernatural does not exist, all phenomena having physical explanations, but the science is mostly pseudo, all psi and crystals and such. (Though not nearly as painful as "midichlorians".) The "woman menaced by evil psychologists claiming [...]

    5. Jayne Castle, aka Jayne Ann Krentz, has done it again. I love her books under whatever name she writes, but I have a special place in my heart for the dust bunny books. In Hot Zone, the third of the Rainshadow Island series, we meet Lyle, the newest addition to the dust bunny cast.Unlike some of the other dust bunnies, Lyle does not have a fetish for jewelry or antique clutches or dolls. Lyle likes to sort things, whether they are pieces of candy or pieces of amber. He arranges and rearranges th [...]

    6. I went into this book blindly, with no prior knowledge of this author, series, or the world she created. It’s not something I normally do, especially not this late in a series, but the synopsis was too alluring to pass up and I fervently hoped it could function as a standalone. As it turns out it can, or at least the main storyline can since it focuses on two previously unknown point of view characters. It was a bit different with the world, since it’s very elaborate and well-built. It’s n [...]

    7. Five reasons to grab a cup of joe and lose yourself in The Hot Zone:1. It is Halloween on Rainshadow Island, and its newest resident Sedona Snow is in danger. She recently escaped from an underground laboratory thanks to the help of her new companion and faithful dust bunny, Lyle. Castle weaves a suspenseful tale complete with murder, mayhem and escalating danger that kept me on edge. Her villains will make you shiver and wish unhappy things to befall them!2. Cyrus Jones. Meoow! Hunters are on t [...]

    8. This was another solid entry in the series. Indeed, it was somewhat better than the previous on practically every axis. Characters, plot, inventive new wrinkles in the underworld, and a couple if intriguing talent wrinkles should have made for a delightful read.Should have. Unfortunately, Castle drags in a raft of references to another series and that put me off rather strongly. The Fallon Jones series got tiresome with endless go-rounds of the Sylvester formula with bad guys going insane trying [...]

    9. This is book 11 in the Harmony series and book 3 (or 4 depending on how you are counting) in the Rainshadow series. This is obviously not a stand-alone novel, at all. You could maybe get away with reading just the Rainshadow novels, but really, the whole Harmony series is a lot of fun and dust bunnies are completely awesome! What casual readers may or may not know, is that Jayne Castle is also Jayne Ann Krentz is also Amanda Quick. Jayne Castle is her futuristic (with paranormal) pen name under [...]

    10. Sooooo, is it just me or did I miss something? Sedona is the gazillions times great niece of Arizona from JAK's Eclipse Bay series and the J&J contemporaries on Earth - supposedly Arizona got experimented on by the US government and it changed her DNA so she is immune to the alchemical formula's effects. Which is a yea! for AZ Snow - but Arizona was a lesbian and never had any kids, so how did her genetics get into Sedona? DNA doesn't transmit by air you know. Also, what is with JAK's contin [...]

    11. This joint review was originally published at The Book PushersMarlene: I want my own dust bunny! They seem like the most awesome pets ever. A predatory tribble with a taste for candy and danger. They just sound absolutely adorable, and like a kitten on speed.E: I look at my two furballs, remember how I had to clean up shredded candy wrappers in the past, and I think I have my own set of dust bunnies only mine just have 2 eyes each. *grin* actually I have enjoyed the dust bunnies since they showe [...]

    12. Halloween on Rainshadow Island with Lyle the dust-bunny, and friends. What's a dust bunny? Check it out: ncag/2013/07/dust d themousehole/dustbunny But it's not all fun and games. Murderers and monsters are climbing out of the crypts, for this is Harmony, an alien planet colonized by humans centuries ago. The planet sizzles with great quantities of psi energy, leading to energy storms, energy ghosts, psychic monsters, etc. Here on Harmony, humans develop varied paranormal psychic talents, which [...]

    13. 4.5 CocktailsIt’s fitting that a dust bunny named Lyle saves Sedona and starts this book off, since dust bunnies are one of my all-time favorite things about this series. They are these cute fluffy creatures full of character and mischief, but they also have a saying about them, “by the time you see teeth, it’s too late”, they may be cute and fluffy but they can be sleek and deadly too.Rainshadow is a unique island in a world full of wild and crazy happening and where all humans have ext [...]

    14. I am just chortling to my self as I write this. Maybe I will chortle as I breathe and sleep. No I will take a break and not chortle as I write this. If you hadn't guessed at least one word was used way to much. The story was enjoyable and I may read some more of them I just have to brace myself to chortling.

    15. Funny and Suspense Filled Halloween on RainshadowIn THE HOT ZONE it is Halloween on Rainshadow Island. The latest installment of Castle's paranormal futuristic Rainshadow series is about the creatures that go bump in the night. At times funny and suspenseful, this is the story of a woman who fears having been the victim of an experiment and a man who has come to see if she is a danger. THE STORY: Sedona Snow is a gatekeeper which means that she has a talent which allows her to open gates in the [...]

    16. A "Meh" 2.5 stars.I honestly don't know why I keep picking up the Jayne Castle stuff done by Jayne Ann Krentz. I don't know if I've ever really liked one of them, even in a guilty pleasure way. Even though they're all the same author, the only one of her personas I like these days is Amanda Quick (I'm the same way with Nora Roberts/J.D. Robb -- I can take or leave a NR -- usually leave -- but I will read the crap out of her Eve Dallas books) and some of her old JAK stuff.With that out of the way [...]

    17. 4.5 stars“The Hot Zone” by Jayne Castle is another imaginative and thought-provoking tale that explores the capability of the human mind with the complications inherent when artificial enhancements are explored without proper safeguards. Sedona Snow is the very talented Class 5 paranormal gatekeeper who runs afoul of those who are looking for a shortcut to enhancing their powers. Her encounters with the newly appointed Rainshadow Guild boss, Cyrus (Dead Zone) Jones, is just as life-changing [...]

    18. I haven’t enjoyed this author’s new novels in recent years, but this one, her latest, reminded me why she was on the bestsellers’ lists for decades. A surprisingly charming novel, it belongs to the genre of futuristic romance – a romantic story set in some ‘not-quite’ here and now but very close. The action unfolds on another planet, which humans colonized a couple centuries ago. Everyone on this planet has developed some psychic powers, and the author comes up with different variati [...]

    19. Favorite Quote: “If you ever disappeared, I would look for you and I would not stop until I found you.”Sedona Snow, a gate keeper, came to Rainshadow when she was left for dead by a guild boss and subsequently kidnapped and experimented on. She escapes her captors with the help of a dust bunny, Lyle, four days later only to discover her “husband” has already replaced her. When Sedona begins to notice the experiments done to her have altered her original psi talents, she decides to hide o [...]

    20. Not sure why, but I liked this one more than the others. So much that I read it through the night and suffered a terrible book hangover. Yes, I have an addiction problem and it seems to be getting a lot worse.Sedona Snow is a woman who has been sorely screwed. Bastard love child between a couple who left their own marriages, Sedona is left on her own after she finished her schooling. As a powerful talent, she was forced to make it on her own. Successfully opening portals, she is shocked when she [...]

    21. Sedona and CyrusLiked this one. Her solid heroes are always good to read. Full review to come on Fiction Vixen Book Reviews

    22. Author: Jayne Ann Krentz writing as Jayne CastleFirst published: 2013Length: 342 pagesSetting: Rainshadow Island and Crystal City on the planet HarmonySex: Reasonably frequent but mostly fade to black.Hero: Head of the new Rainshadow Ghost Hunters' Guild. Cooler talent.Heroine: Gatekeeper.Another enjoyable Arcane-in-the-future tale from Krentz/Castle. Relying heavily on told (and annoyingly untold) stories from the contemporary series, The Hot Zone revolves around The Formula and another round o [...]

    23. Jayne Ann Krentz has long been one of my comfort reads, whether I’m reading her books when she writes as Jayne Castle, Amanda Quick or under her own name. I own most of the books she’s written as Jayne Castle featuring the futuristic world of Harmony, and when the opportunity came to read and review The Hot Zone, I grabbed it. Her books are a fun blend of science fiction and paranormal all melded into one. The book dives into the action quickly with our heroine, Sedona Snow, escaping from t [...]

    24. In ‘The Hot Zone’ we meet Sedona Snow, a gatekeeper in the world of Harmony. Sedona is not just any gatekeeper, Sedona is very talented and unfortunately people take advantage of that fact. When Sedona escapes a strange and dangerous disaster down in the catacombs she decides to move to Rainshadow Island to start a new life. As the new manager of Knox’s Resort and Tavern Sedona tries to forget her past. Together with her dust bunny friend, Lyle, she feels right at home at the quiet island. [...]

    25. I have a soft spot for the novels by Jayne Castle (Jayne Ann Krentz) set in the distant future on the planet Harmony. The world she has created is too complex to explain in full, but the inhabitants of Harmony were colonists from Earth who were stranded. After they had been there awhile, certain psychic abilities latent on Earth began to manifest and now the planet pretty much runs on psychic energy, even things as simple as turning lights on and off. A substantial part of the population is enga [...]

    26. Even with the world already built, Ms. Castle keeps adding more and more, but without overdoing it, without piling up too much or maybe descending into 'ridiculous'. There's just enough old to keep things familiar and enough new to keep things interesting.The fact that each and every story, although set in the same universe of a far-and-away planet, Alien catacombs, paranormal powers, suspense and intrigue, is different, and I never get the feeling of being-there-read-that, is a major plus.This [...]

    27. Accidentally stummbled across this. Didn't research it as I usually do before I jump into a read. My audio player was acting up and I tried downloading 2 different books to see if the audio ebook was defective or if it was my audio player. Anyway, I started listening to this and was instantly intrigued. Which is always better than having to wade through a few maybe not so interesting chapters before you reach the good stuff! I listened every chance I could. Completely different characters, world [...]

    28. This installment has a lot of Arcane suspense and adventure. We follow Sedona Snow (descendent of Arizona Snow back on Earth) from her being in jeopardy, first contact with her dust bunny to her run in with the Jones family. Usually, most of it happens off book and we jump in after dust bunny bonding. It was great seeing dust bunny first contact and in action.While certain aspects of the story happened a little too fast, most of it happened just right. The dynamics between heroine and hero didn' [...]
