Publisher: Berkley
A desperate underground war with the survival of millions at stake looms in the electrifying conclusion of the New York Times bestselling Bishop Files Trilogy.

Tasha Solomon's world turned upside-down when the psychic abilities she had tried so hard to live with in secret suddenly made her a target stalked by unseen enemies.

John Brodie is by nature, by training, and by instinct a Guardian. He is a member of an intricate and secretive network of individuals who have devoted their lives to the deadly struggle of saving psychics in danger of being taken or being killed. It is a war very few other people even know exists, and yet its tentacles stretch deeply and dangerously into every aspect of society.

Tasha has abilities not even she is aware of, abilities that the other side would give virtually all they possess to destroy. And if being hunted like an animal were not bad enough she has to learn how to become a warrior in a battle she did not choose, to save people she does not know, and possibly even the very world around her.

If John Brodie can keep her alive long enough.

Final Shadows brings to a close the Bishop Files trilogy by Kay Hooper. A network of people with psychic abilities must work together to end the war between those Bishop has sworn to protect and the factions. The horrors of the factions must be stopped at all costs, and Murphy is more than willing to pull out all the stops to make sure this war ends once and for all.

Murphy is an interesting character that is shrouded in mystery. A few questions about her are answered but really all that does is create more questions. A future series that focuses on Murphy’s past, present and future would make a superb addition Hooper’s books. Duran is the other character that needs to be explored further. He’s one that you want to hate but aren’t so sure that you should. His unanswered questions are by far the most intriguing.

This final book was one of the best I have read by Hooper. The underlying secrets that are brought to light and even the questions that are still unanswered made this a truly interesting read. It will open your mind to endless possibilities and what I hope is not the end of some fantastic characters.

About the Author:
Kay Hooper was born in California, in an air force base hospital since her father was stationed there at the time. The family moved back to North Carolina shortly afterward, so she was raised and went to school there.

The oldest of three children, Kay has a brother two years younger and a sister seven years younger. Her father (now retired) and brother are builders who own a highly respected construction company, and her mother worked for many years in personnel management before becoming Kay's personal assistant, a position she held until her untimely death in March 2002. Kay's sister Linda works as her Business Manager, Events Coordinator, and Regional Publicist.

Kay graduated from East Rutherford High School and attended Isothermal Community College — where she quickly discovered that business classes did not in any way enthrall her. Switching to more involving courses such as history and literature, she also began to concentrate on writing, which had been a longtime interest. Very quickly hooked, she asked for a Christmas typewriter and began seriously working on her first novel. That book, a Regency romance titled Lady Thief, sold to Dell Publishing in 1980. She has since published more than 60 novels and four novellas

Kay is single and lives in a very small town in North Carolina, not far from her father and siblings. Deigning to live with her are a flock of cats (and a couple of dogs!) with various personalities who all like sleeping on manuscripts and whatever research happens to be spread across Kay's desk.

Kay also fosters cats and kittens for the Community Pet Center, a non-profit rescue organization on whose board she also sits.
