Out of Sight - Stella Cameron

Psychic master talent Sykes Millet can vanish at will, read minds and control others with hypnosis. What Sykes cannot do is escape his destiny—an ancient curse foretelling the misery his dark beauty may bring to everyone he loves.
Poppy Fortune knows all too well the burden of having paranormal talent. The supernatural world has fractured her entire family—now it's keeping at bay the one man she wants more than life.
Driven by hatred for the Millets, a killing force has attacked New Orleans. The evil Embran race has no conscience and intends to terrorize the city into submission. Sykes and Poppy must set aside old distrust and use their bonded talents to save their families, themselves...and New Orleans.

Title: Out of Sight (A Court of Angels Novel)
Genre: Adult Fiction, Paranormal Romance
Publisher: Mira
Publication Date: May 1, 2010
My Rating: 3/5

This is the third novel in the Court of Angels story arc. The storyline was okay, though I had a hard time figuring out who or what exactly the "Embran" were. They never were fully explained, but that could be because they were probably explained more fully in the first book.
I enjoyed the chemistry between Sykes and Poppy, and I liked the secondary characters, however some of the scenes weren't quite believable. Specifically one between Poppy and Sykes. Poppy doesn't argue about something I think she should have raised more questions about.
Other than that, the story was okay, I just had a hard time connecting with it and the characters.
Overall, not a great read for me, but I'm sure fans of Cameron's works will enjoy it.
