"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.
