Time is running out...
Kane never believed in things like fate or karma. Not until the night he took a life.
A secret society of immortals lives within the human world. Kane is one of them--a Sensor who experiences emotional energy through touch. But despite his good looks and easy-going personality, Kane lives a solitary life. Unlike other Sensors, he is unnaturally hypersensitive.
Touch brings pain.
Fate throws a curveball when a woman's life is placed in his hands. Kane is suddenly faced with making a choice, and each comes with a consequence that will wreck him forever. Time is not on his side.
Will she be his salvation, or his ruination?
Closer is a stand alone novella that is based in the same world of the Mageri series, but is not part of the Mageri series.

After reading The Gift, I felt like I was missing the stories of two couples. One of those was Kane and Caroline.
Closer brings us the story of Kane and Caroline. Kane is a Sensor who has never really had the opportunity to learn about his Breed or even how to control his own gifts. He’s a bit of a loner. Then he stumbles across a man that Kane picks up is a murderer. Kane does what he believes he needs to do, despite it being against the law to hurt a human.
Then he meets Caroline. Caroline is a spunky, fun character. But the thing here is, the whole story of these two takes place inside her head. All of the revelations about each other and even their own gifts is all within her head. I kept expecting things to happen that would take the relationship beyond that. Instead, it just got sadder and sadder.
Despite getting to know these two characters inside and out throughout the whole book, I did not feel the connection with them that I would have needed to to make me cry. So even though in some circumstances I could see this being a tear jerker, I didn’t shed any. Boy, did that sound callous! I felt bad for the characters, but I didn’t cry. That sounded a bit better!
This is a cute, emotional novella that will give you a peek inside the Mageri world and some of the side characters. In fact, I think this may actually happen before the first book of the Mageri series. It’s hard to say, but the timing seems that way to me. Anyway, if you are a fan of this series, you won’t want to miss out on this little side story. It’s always great to come back to a beloved world!
