In her struggle she embraces a new spirituality. Reading opens a window to a different world from my every day. With this book, I was looking for a way to distract my worries and reignite my enthusiasm for the daily grind. Thank you, G. Collins for the insights! Losing her father changed Rachel's life. The circumstances surrounding his death left her confused and alone.
Her marriage provided no comfort, and her only brother prefers not to have anything to do with her. In the end, Rachel runs from everyone and everything. Loneliness has its limit, though, and Rachel finds herself turning to avenues she doesn't understand, unleashing power she has no idea how to control or stop. The basic premise of this book was very intriguing. I liked the idea of someo Losing her father changed Rachel's life. I liked the idea of someone messing around with power they have no clue how to control and starting a chain of events they have no way of stopping.
Collins captures the natural desire to test limits and seek answers when there seems to be no other options. All of the Native American aspects of this book were well researched and presented very tastefully. It was clear that Collins was not only familiar with the area, but that she took the time to discover more about the culture and practices of the groups she was writing about.
I found the Native American aspects of this book quite intriguing and they really kept the story interesting. The characters were well developed, for the most part. I enjoyed the supporting characters and felt they all had a uniqueness to them that kept them from being flat. Even those who only made a brief appearance were memorable.
Rachel was an interesting character as well. Overall, she had a very good backstory and the emotion behind her story made her a compelling character. His carefree living ends abruptly when his brother is killed. He agrees to an arranged marriage to form an Alliance with the more technologically advanced country of Perspicia. He uses every tool in his wooing belt, including his knowledge of herbs to make her fragrant baths, making sure she always has chocolate, and giving her a horse. Not only does he find hard earned love, but he begins to understand himself better. While Samantha transforms into the woman of his dreams, he also changes; taking responsibility for his own actions and garnering a sense of loyalty and duty.
Mage Corey of East Selen. From Eolyn and High Maga. By Karin Rita Gastreich. One night when he was still a boy, his clan was brutally destroyed by the Mage King Kedehen. Corey escaped thanks to the intervention of his cousin Briana, who was captured by Kedehen and made queen. At once a prisoner and adopted son of the royal family, Mage Corey struggles with conflicting motivations. On the one hand, he desires vengeance for the massacre of his clan. The chemistry between Eolyn and Corey crackles with tension. Their relationship is one of constant disagreement, wary admiration, and latent attraction.
Although Corey is a minor character, the story of Eolyn is as much about him as it is about her. Their fates are tightly intertwined, and the final outcome of the saga will depend crucially on the resilience of their besieged friendship. Princess Samantha is perfect. Every lock of blond hair is in place and her corset cinched to in human proportions.
She has been schooled in all of the womanly arts of household management and subservience and is ready to be the future queen of Perspicia. Something itches just below the surface of her mind though. She needs more. She has to tinker. Soon, the limits of her genius are stretched as she becomes not only a warrior, but possibly the savior of their kingdom. The following interview is a chat between the author and her main character. I know interviews make you nervous.
This is sort of weird. I mean, as my author, you already know everything about me. I feel like I learn more about you every day. Having fans. How would you describe yourself to people who have not read your books. I grew up in a completely normal, somewhat boring, family in Dubuque, Iowa. But then my sister died…my twin. It changed everything. When my sister died, the psychic parts of us reached out and connected.
Only once she was gone, my psychic part never snapped back in. Makes me feel like a freak. You have sort of a love triangle thing going on. My boyfriend is Bryan Sullivan. I think he has guilt over breaking up with my sister right before she died, and he is projecting that onto me. And you liked it. Yes, I kissed him back, and I liked it. He kisses like he could medal in it in the Olympics. But it was just biological. He could even die. And one of the ways I can use the emotional energy that I absorb from people is by healing. So for the first time in his life, he thinks he can be reckless and have fun like the other guys because if he gets hurt, I can just patch him up.
Wipes me out, causes M. Any romantic feelings there? Bastian is hot. I mean, need-a-fire-extinguisher-on-stand-by hot. And we have become very close. We are at different places in life. We have both been tortured and tormented, and now we need each other if we are. If you were on a cross country road trip, who would you want in the car with you? And who would be the driver, the navigator, the backseat driver and the person who leads the car games?
Like I said, he makes me feel protected, and I trust him behind the wheel for long distances. I would totally navigate. Cane would be the backseat driver. He is always trying to tell me what to do and how to run my life. And the car games? That would have to be my telepathic friend, Jinx.
She is hilarious. Jesi : You would travel across country without taking your boyfriend, Bryan, with you?
