"An adult fairy tale- Grimm style"
Over a decade has passed since the horror of PROSPERO'S
CHILDREN occurred and all Fernanda Capel wants is to live a
normal life. To that end, she buries her witchcraft gift
and accepts a proposal of marriage from Marcus even as she
admits to her best friend that she does not love him.
Fern's efforts to ignore her powers seem futile though she
constantly tries because otherworldly omens continually
On the eve of her wedding, Fern falls into a coma and is
rushed to a hospital. As she lies unconscious in bed,
Fern's soul lies trapped in purgatory. Though the odds are
overwhelming against her success, if she can free her soul
and reunite it with her body, Fern knows she must war with
powerful evils to save the world and her best friend.
THE DRAGON CHARMER is a strong fantasy novel because the
story line ties the supernatural with the mundane in such a
clever way that the otherworldly elements seem everyday and
a matter of fact. That element along with a fully
developed, authentic feeling cast (in spite of some being
not of this earthly plane) makes this a powerful novel that
will please fans of Jan Siegel and send new readers
searching for the previous tale.
