She has had to be trained to fend off souls from entering her, without her wishing them to. Also, if she wants to speak to a particular soul, she needs a touchstone, something -- usually meaningful to the soul -- that it came in contact with while alive. Prior to the latest volume, Natalie had helped the Corps and the FBI earlier to track down a mass-murderer of Violets, but she has become leery of the Corps' controlling nature.

Since she left them, the NAACC has placed twenty-four hour surveillance on Natalie's new home, where she is a single parent raising her child with her father. Quietly, two medical scientists have tried to recreate new Violets, with a horrible lack of success. The new Violets are incomplete, lacking control -- souls flow in and out of the medium at will, leaving the medium no control over his life. One scientist tries to wipe out the experiment entirely, but the remaining scientist simply channels the dead scientist into completing the experiment to its finish -- no matter how awful the outcome.
Unfortunately, Natalie falls in love with one of the doomed experimental Violets -- not to mention that the Violet killer has escaped from his soul-cage prison, buried underground, and that a wholly different faction wants all new Violets dead, even if a cure is found. The novel is engrossing, told in the smooth style typical of the suspense genre. Woodworth's style used to be more playful.
There may be more that I missed. What makes the parallel universe that Woodworth has constructed so dramatically intense is that the author is unafraid to whack off characters -- not that Woodworth is in favor of murder or that he thinks the bliss of afterlife makes murder okay the afterlife in Woodworth's hands, after all, sounds rather dismal although there may be a place beyond the afterlife, which no one living has access to.
Rather, Woodworth's universe keeps the reader on his toes. Other Editions 7. Friend Reviews. To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up. To ask other readers questions about From Black Rooms , please sign up. Since this book was out in , I fear I know the answer.

And all of the little details that Woodworth thinks of add a lot to building a great alternative reality. But I have to give it only two stars because the writing in this one was mediocre there are 4 characters with nearly the same name, and it's just distracting. Generally, I felt the story's a little weak, when the concept is just SO great.
Maybe the pub First off: I absolutely love the concepts of the Violets. Maybe the publisher rushed him to get this book out the door.

But there's just a little too much re-capping the previous stories, the character development is weak, and I found the ending more than a little disappointing. She wasn't sure about if it would work out with Cal, but she's willing to let the NAACC win to stop him from goin to jail? Can't say much more than that. Dec 19, Samantha rated it it was amazing. I love this concept.

Woodworth keeps revealing more and more about the Violets and how they function. I love how the series is progressing. He is really showing how full his characters are that he's developing and adding different characters for you to care about as he kills off others to make you feel it. I'm not going to write a plot summary since so many others have already did this. I will say that you need to read the previous books for you to get the complete pictu I love this concept.
I will say that you need to read the previous books for you to get the complete picture of Evan. He's back and badder than ever. I loved the science of how a Violet works and how the brain nodes function. I didn't really like how fast the book wrapped up. I felt that Mr. Woodworth skipped over some things very quickly that I'm hoping he explains more in detail in his next book. I highly recommend this book and the series. Sep 03, Drucilla rated it it was ok Shelves: w. This is the last entry in the Violet series and as such brings us back to the first book.
Numerous characters from the first book reappear and the story, while not the same, resonates with it. I had several problems with this book, the first of which being that the author never seems to cut Natalie a break. For every scrap of happiness she gets, she has to give up 10 fold. While there is a 'happy' ending to the story, it wasn't happy enough for me. How is that happy? The publisher decided against more books because of declining sales. Photo credit: Jana Carson.
