From the second she reaches for his hand, Skye Rydell feels compelled to save the SWAT officer from the brink of death.  Skye senses Trevor has something more to accomplish in life.  Something disquieting.  Important.  Something involving her.  Skye makes a split-second decision and, with her choice to use her Valkyrie powers to bring Trevor back to life, everything changes.  For her act causes her to accidentally impart her deadly powers to Trevor... And now, with a murderer hot on their heels, Trevor must grapple with his new gift, his fierce desire for Skye--and a monumental decision that will put all that he holds most dear on the line!


"Back to Life is a crafty tale, where the unseen paranormal element packs a powerful punch.  Ms. Johnston gives readers a strong romantic suspense with life or death situations, and adds a sizzling dose of chemistry to heat up the pages.  Back to Life is a fast-moving and entertaining read that I’d recommend to readers who love a good paranormal romance within a light police procedural." -- Darque Reviews

"Fans of paranormal romantic suspense thrillers will enjoy this engaging police procedural due to the actions and reluctant reactions of the lead couple towards one another. In fact Skye’s mixed feelings of wanting Trevor and avoiding him make the tale fun to read as she comes across so human in spite of her Valkyrie powers. BACK TO LIFE is a well written romantic thriller." -- Harriet Klausner, Genre Go Round Reviews

"The character development in this is some of the best I've seen in a Silhouette Nocturne; Trevor especially emerges as a complex man: a good man, but whose sense of justice veers toward over-zealousness, even when it's well-intentioned. Skye, with her more judicious use of her talent, balances him out; she's the perfect guide for him as he adjusts to his new abilities. Author Linda O. Johnston brings to this book the same level of realism she showed in her previous book, Alpha Wolf (Silhouette Nocturne): she presents her Valkyries as realistically as she portrayed the shapeshifters in her earlier book, and for a moment, you can believe that maybe, just maybe there are people out there who actually have the ability to call the dying back to life or ease them into the afterlife..." -- Renee Mulhare, Amazon.com

"Johnston offers a novel idea for a story, and there's great chemistry between Skye and Trevor. Plus, Skye's reluctance to get involved with Trevor is nicely depicted." -- Alexandra Kay, RT Book Reviews
