Alex Caine has been suffering the weight of the world, and some days it's hard to even get out of bed. Alone one night, a band of Fey overwhelm him and steal him away from the mortal realm. Silhouette, desperate to save her lover, calls in Armour, but the organisation seems reluctant to help.
Claude Darvill, his fragile alliance with Alex at an end, is still searching for the remains of his father, Robert Hood. In frozen wastes of Iceland, Darvill is driven by a deep-burning grudge and a need for revenge. His efforts are backed by all the considerable resources of Black Diamond Incorporated.
Silhouette must overcome her greatest fears and use all her skills to locate Alex. But even if she can find him, that's only the start of their problems.
In this third Alex Caine book, sequel to Bound and Obsidian, old enemies and new share a common goal. Alex Caine hates to be the centre of attention, but he and Silhouette need to pull together as the world is threatened once more and only Alex can save it.

Comments about Abduction:
I need to say that I know the author but that this review is written because I truly delight in these books.
Abduction is the final of the Alex Caine trilogy and, for me, it's the best. In Abduction, Alan Baxter brings all the various threads throughout the books to an exciting and nail biting end leaving you wanting more.
Each of the books in this series can be read as a stand alone book and that's brilliant. That said, I think the whole series is a terrific read.
I loved Bound and Obsidian, they set up Alex Caine and his life beautifully. Both are very different books where Bound introduces Alex and his contemporary world where magic exists quietly whereas Obsidian is set in a 'closed' world, dark and nervy.
Alan Baxter is a master at writing fight scenes that are short, sharp and real. He describes his settings so that they blend well with the characters in order that the story remains the focus.
If you love action, fast paced storyline, real characters that you can relate to, this is the series for you.
If you like thrillers, well written characters, a real ride through each of the individual books, then I highly recommend these three.
