      Marley Millet is a clairvoyant who travels outside her body (hence the title) where she is trying to decipher who is killing singers in New Orleans. Ex-cop turned journalist, Gray Fisher was investigating two of the four missing women and seems to be a suspect. When Marley and Gray team up, it is a strained relationship since Marley doesn't trust Gray. On the other hand, Gray is instantly attracted to Marley and wants her assistance in solving the mystery among other things.This is a totally uni [...]

      Little bit weak and disjointed in the telling. Not as interesting as I had hoped it would be. Obviously set up to be continued in the next two books. Marley and Gray are fated to be with one another but the road to each other is lame and so is their adversary. So there is this unknnown ancient enemy who is immortal but for the fact that it is infected with "something" that makes it rot and it has to find a portal back to the place where it can be revitalized. Alot of women are kidnapped and some [...]

      The Millet family has always been different. But their gift of paranormal powers is also their curse, thanks to Jude Millet marrying the wrong woman, resulting in the family’s exile first from Belgium and then from London. Now, three hundred years later, the Embran, the dark creatures living deep underground, the same race Jude’s wife was from, are back, trying to find the cure to the disease the woman has brought into their domain. And the Millets are the only ones that can stop them. Again [...]

      From the beginning, I had a hard time reading this book. It was as if huge chunks of the mythology were left out and the reader was supposed to already know about the Millet family. But, even as more of the story started to unfold, I still felt like I was a step behind. I ended up reading the other two books I'll read because they've already been mailed, but this series is definitely not Cameron's best.Marley Millet is psychic. She can see what's happening in other places, right now what's going [...]

      This book has it all, a love story, magic, and good old fashion horror. This is the story of Marly Millet of the "woo woo"crazy Millet family in,where else, New Orleans. The whole family has different paranormal talents and you do get a good look at her family also. They are trying to find out about the Millet curse, mom and dad in Europe leaving the family in the hands of Uncle Pascal.This is Marley and Grey's story of how they fell in love while trying to solve some murders. It kept me interes [...]

      I'm not usually a mystery fan, but this seems doable. Maybe it is a paranormal elements that made me more comfortable? When I started I had some trouble getting into the story. It felt like I was missing a large chunk of the history and that chunk was needed to understand. As I read on I realized that the chunk is also missing from the characters. A prevalent story line is about the family finding out who they are and if the curse is real. It's much easier to feel lost when the characters are un [...]

      Half-way through this book I was convinced I had read it before. My memory is bad, but not bad enough to forget a book I read in 2010, the date of the copyright. So it was just 'one of those books I felt like I had read before'. Out of Body is one of those typical cliché stories about a psychopath who kidnaps and brutalizes women. The only variation is that the psychopath is of the supernatural variety. He or 'it', is a member of the 'Embran family', but little information about this family is [...]

    • Paranormal Romance says:

      The heroine is plagued constantly by disturbing and haunting images of kidnapped woman and she can't ignore them. She goes to the police to report the information she's received during one of her out of body experiences. There she meets the hero, a retired cop who left the force to pursue a career in crime writing. He's on the case regarding missing new Orleans singers and when he realizes that he and the stunning red head are after the same thing, he insists that they team up. Not only because [...]

      I am a bit torn on how to review this book. There were definitely things I liked about it, but overall it didn't blow me away. It was a little closer to three stars than two, so I went for three.Things I liked: This is set in New Orleans, which is one of my absolute favourite places. I'm always predisposed to read a book set there, although the book didn't really use the city as much as I feel it could have to add more flavour to the story.I liked the family with powers scenario - don't we all w [...]

    • Fallon says:

      Alright, I'm on the fence on this one. I enjoyed the story, but there was something missing. I have no idea what it was, but this book just didn't have that memorable flair to it. The premise is interesting, we have a family of red-haired green-eyed preternaturally gifted people, of course there is the one black-haired brother who's supposed be a 'curse' to the family. This story revolves around Marley who can 'travel' outside of her body, and can communicate psychically with her family. We find [...]

      This review was originally posted on my review blog : fallingofftheshelfMarley Millet and her entire family are each gifted with a different ability. As for Marley, she can 'travel' to different places and glimpse things that she would rather not see. In this case, she's been witnessing the deaths of local New Orleans jazz singers. She can't very well go to the cops, and tell them what she has seen without looking like a crazy person. Against her better judgement, she does just that, but the onl [...]

      Despite a very confusing beginning, Out of Body quickly builtinto a fascinating tale of the paranormal, with mystery and romance toboot! Cameron’s psychic characters are quite complex, and she choosesto explain everything about who they are and what their ‘powers’ arein a couple of chapters in the beginning as opposed to introducing themto us in a more organic manner. Those used to reading about theparanormal should catch on quickly, but I worry about a less experiencedreader. I give Camer [...]

      It's been years since I last read a Stella Cameron novel. She used to be one of my must read authors, but I slowly got tired of out she was writing, I don't quite remember when and why that happened but it did. I got this book along with the other books of the Court of Angels trilogy through a book swap. They've been in my TBR pit for almost two years. It's about time I got around to reading them.I found it very hard to get into the book. It felt complicated and hard to follow and at times it wa [...]

      I made it 14% before I had to call it quits. So far, it's a very disjointed way of telling a story. Marley, the main character, is ridiculously vague, unsure of herself, and confused. You can't get a grasp on a character that doesn't even have a grasp on herself. Then we have the other main character, Fisher, who is also vague and confusing. And Archer, who just seems like an asshole so far.The problem isn't so much the characters, though if they weren't so confusing, it would be easier to conti [...]

    • Beth Gibson says:

      This should have been billed as a paranormal romantic suspense. Not generally my cup of tea. Neither paranormal nor romantic suspense. But it sounded a little different in that a person was just going to use their psychic talents to solve a case of missing persons. I can deal with that. Except that the focus of the story strayed far away from that. Even the romantic part took a back seat. It mostly dwelled on the history of her paranormal family and the talents they have. And that some centuries [...]

      When I picked up Cameron's supernatural thriller and noticed that it was a Harlequin, I was expecting a whole lot of steamy scenes but alas, that wasn't meant to be. The story takes place in New Orleans and follows a woman with the ability to remote view who helps solve the mystery of missing lounge singers. Turns out they're being hunted by a supernatural being who was selected among his race (by fighting them off) to travel to the earth's surface to figure out how to cure the race from an affl [...]

      If it wasn't for a few lacking parts, this book would have easily made 5 stars. Unfortunately there were a few downfalls in this book. First, some areas jumped a bit too much. It almost left you lost, reading the pages over to see if you missed something. Second, although I really like the characters, there was one area where it felt like Gray took over Marley's personality. This was rather irritating. Finally, with so much build up on who the bad guy was, I was shocked there was only a few page [...]

    • Leah says:

      This book was very weird. The characters, though, not the plot. I really liked the concept of the story but the characters weirded me out. And, I find it really sad that I thought the book got only slightly better after Gray and Marley had sex.I did feel bad for Gray, however, upon learning about his horrid past. Poor guy. I almost cried when he was describing it. His powers were awesome.Marley was absolutely weird. She did have cool powers, though.I totally knew that Sidney and Eric had to do w [...]

      In New Orleans fearing for women, Marley visits NOPD Detective Archer who treats her like she is a crazy lady though much of her rumbling proves true. Only reporter Gray Fisher, a retired cop, who believes her. As Gray and Marley team up to prevent the Embran from harming anyone else. This was more of a mystical thriller that keeps you guessing as to what will happen to the missing women of New Orleans. The hints through out lead you toward the villain’s identity, but the twist at the finale w [...]

    • Annika says:

      The concept of this I like. The execution went awry. For fairness, I know I wasn't in the right frame of mind, having just finished a book on sister-wives and polygamy. While that would haunt any sane person, it still stuck with me as I started this book, so terms like "Mentor" and the point of view of a woman in her 30s who doesn't fit in to this world kept tying in to the previous, totally unrelated, book. Not the author's fault.What is the author's fault is passive language, too much backgrou [...]

    • Brittany says:

      Really enjoyed this start to a series and will definitely read the rest.I hadn't read anything by this author before but I like her writing style and would read other things. The book is about the Millets, a family of psychics, particularly one named Marley, and the weird set of murders going on in New Orleans. It is paced pretty well and throws in a few twists and turns. There is a different kind of chemistry between Marley and her love interest and while a paranormal bonding type of relationsh [...]

    • Vicky Dierker says:

      This is a paranormal mystery where the bad guys are demonlike monsters from another realm. This book has a lot of potential, but it is slow. There is also quite a bit going on at one time and this can make it hard to keep up with. I did manage to wade through and finish so it did get a three. I was tempted to quit a couple of times, but the book got better at the end so I gave it a three. I will attempt the second book in the series and hopefully it goes down a little smoother. Otherwise book th [...]

    • Stacy says:

      Reread, rereviewed. Like some elements. Like the Court of Angels. But something is off. Lack of detail on the reasoning, the big bad became lame awful fast, the warning was there often that it was going to happen eventually without actually getting the message across that it was in progress. The hero was heralded very late. Timing was off.

    • Leslie says:

      This book was okaya little hard to get into the storyline in the beginning and the writing didn't flow great in some places. A couple of sentences I had to read a couple of times to figure out what the author actual meant. I'll read the other books in the series - later - but not right now. Just didn't grab me as some of the other series I'm reading.

    • Guna says:

      It took a while to get to care about the characters, but once that was in place, I enjoyed the book. Marley is a clairvoyant, from a long line of clairvoyants, living in New Orleans, dealing with the prejudices of the town. An evil being has come to this reality, and Marley must vanquish it or all, including she and her family, will be lost. She has help from an unlikely source.

    • Cathy says:

      Took way to long to get interesting. It was around page 240 that the action picked up. I have read alot of her other paranormal suspense books and this sucked in comparison. Not totally unreadable if you want to fish through for the story. The characters were good but the rest was just disjointed and missing something.

    • Jeannie says:

      I felt that the suspense was good and you somehow can't really tell who are the 'bad' guys as compared to other books. The plot was interesting enough but I thought the flow was a little confusing at some points hus giving it 4 stars.

    • Sara says:

      I had a hard time concentrating on this book. The idea of psychic powers and strange beings from elsewhere intrigued me, but the language of the book kept distracting me from the plot. I found myself going back to reread to figure out how things had come to pass.
