Dr. Madeleine LeBlanc is a clinical psychologist who works to help the homeless population of New Orleans. But she knows that alongside the mundane world in which she lives, there exists the Briar, a chaotic realm that is the source of Madeleine’s paranormal powers—as well as her family’s singular madness. Chloe, Madeleine’s grandmother, is bent on bridging the two worlds in order to control both. Zenon, the psychologist’s half-brother, lies comatose in this world, but in the Briar he shares his sister’s ability to bend people’s will to his own. Cornered in a Louisiana oil field, Madeleine must fight a desperate battle on two fronts—indeed, two realities—to save both worlds from a menace she may have unwittingly helped to create.

I was completely immersed in the stories of Dr. Madelien Le Blank. I surely hope there is to be a sequel to this book.
