When the evil you fear is born from within, who will save us…from ourselves?
Sometimes our souls hear what our minds and hearts refuse to accept. It will whisper its continuous cadence until we're strong enough to glimpse the truth. But when the soul's whispers morph into screams, we're forced to gaze into the mirrors of time and see ourselves for who we really are.
Grappling with her newfound leadership position, Stasia begins to experience a recurring nightmare of murder, as well as curious reveries about a violet-eyed girl who can control the moon. When tragedy grips the Tydes and several important relics are stolen from the Sons of Daimon, Stasia’s Council leaves for the forgotten island of Atlantis. Unfortunately Atlantis harbors its own secrets, and they are all calling to Stasia. As her nightmares become worse and she begins to lose control of her mind, those around her must find a way to reach her…and fast.
Olivia Campbell is used to getting what she wants, when she wants it. But destiny never asked Olivia what she wanted. Being Chosen to be a Paladin at birth had not been something she wanted, and she definitely hadn’t wanted her charge to be Anastasia. Unfortunately their irritatingly persistent Atlantean guide, Sebastian, seems to know all about her and the secrets she’s been hiding. As she fights to protect Stasia from an unknown force, Olivia’s own courage and loyalty will be tested in ways she never imagined. Will she be able to tell Stasia the truth before it’s too late for them both?
Again, love it but
you need an editor to help with word choices. I might also think about putting the WHOLE prophesy at the beginning of the very first book--to foreshadow events to come. Also, when it appears in the text you need to set it apart by using single spacing, justified, a large indent, italics, smaller font by 1-2 sizes, or SOMETHING! Otherwise the reader thinks that it's a continuation of the previous thought/paragraph/descriptor/etc.
Learn connotations of words versus denotations. Do you have a writing group? See if you can contact Yasmine Gaelnorn, Kim Harrison, Laurel K Hamilton, Diana Gabaldon, or Deborah Harkness on Twitter. They will help you to phrase things in a more readable fashion. You have the plot, you have the characters (although Phoebe is a little shallow in the character development department) and most of all, you have a fabulous storyline throughout this series! @heather32838716
