"tremendous, extremely dark and graphic gothic fantasy"

In 1989 in a Scotland rehab center former model Julienne Hunter knows it is time to restart her life after kicking the drug habit that almost killed her six months ago. Still she has lingering fears before she returns to the public caused by the brutal slashing of her face by her abusive maniacal former husband, James.

When her deceased mother's estranged family offers hospitality to Julienne, she sees an opportunity to learn why her mother fled her Virginia home. Julienne also knows this solace will enable her to mentally heal. Her matriarchal grandmother welcomes Julienne in love, but Morgan Saint-Evanston, who her mother hated, prefers she stay away from Blackthorne Manor forever. Though Julienne and Morgan argue, they are also attracted to one another. Still she wonders what is the secret that drove her mother into the night and worries why he plans to vanish shortly. Julienne also frets over a nightmare in which Morgan kills her and she commits murder too, but soon she will find out that the truth is so much greater with worlds at stake.

ECHOES OF ANGELS is a tremendous, extremely dark and graphic gothic fantasy. The story line grips the audience from the moment her grandmother's lawyer drops the invitation on the heroine. Fans will admire Julienne, who at first survives what seems as overkill, but instead cleverly prepares her for her destiny. Morgan appears to be a classic gothic hero but is actually an immortal from another dimension. The weakness of this powerful fantasy is that the audience will want to read book II of the Keepers of Eternity series immediately following completion of this triumphant opening gamut.

Twenty-one years ago, Cassandra Blackthorne and her daughter, Julienne, fled their family home. Ironically, circumstances lure Julienne Hunter back to her birthplace--Blackthorne Manor in Virginia--and into the clutches of the man her mother hated, Morgan Saint-Evanston. She soon discovers that Blackthorne balances between two worlds, that of mortal reality and the dimensional enigma known as Sclyd. Come Halloween, they will merge and Scyldian entities will be free to hunt the weaker human race for slaves and sacrifices to appease their dragon god, Ouroborous. Destined as a keeper of eternity's gates and protector against the armies of darkness, Julienne's legacy will be costly, for she must sacrifice her soul to save mankind.
