In reaction to the balance between dark and light heavily
tilting in favor of the darkness, ancient gods create a
force to fight the ultimate battle by making eight
individuals immortal with magical powers. At the same time
that the gods intercede, the Nameless One awakens, awaiting
the moment to capture the gate keeper as a key step to
destroy the light.
The gods awaken Kryla, She who is Protector of the
Spiritual Planes so she can unite with a mortal host,
Andrea as these two separate essences share one body with
the goal of finding the other chosen. Kryla trains Andrea
to use her extrasensory powers and become spiritually
aware, but the mortal also has mundane issues relating to
her spouse and four teens. However, her prime directive is
to find and "awaken" the other seven knowing she must help
them cope with their psychic skills and their fears of
their responsibilities, the gods and the dark for their
chosen life will never be the same due to magical forces at
This opening gamut combines mythological elements with a
coming Armageddon that will thrill readers of fantasy. The
story line is action-packed yet balances the key awakening
inside of the mortals especially Andrea whose coping with
the mundane and the fantastic seems so realistic as she
doubts she has the right stuff. With strong
characterizations (including the mythological) inside a
powerfully descriptive tale of good battling evil, this
reviewer prophesizes that A.M. Scott and her New Age series
will receive strong acclaim. This first tale is a
refreshing triumph in the age old theme of the light trying
to stop the growing darkness.

Odin's voice reverberated though the heavens…
"The Prophecy is about to unfold. Heed the call…awaken!"
"Through the mists of ages they come, dark and light alike.
All six from separate flows of demonic hatred, filled with the might of angelic love.
Seeker, Keeper, Key, all come from place the same.
They fill an end of bitter tears and fears of all round.
Two of these have seen and know the truth of each other's hearts
and yet only one of this bound pair will not be bound to death as well.
The other one who stands alone will find the Joined Souls,
this one will be the one who eats and Devours the plan whole.
Beware this third for they are the one who is nothing but evil.
Yet without this searching one, little of what is meant to sew
will untangle its black threads.
Key of Keys without a lock, they find a name, a home,
the time drips away, like the sands inside a deep array of deep and evil fields.
Keeper and Guardian of the Soul, quickness is your friend.
Beware your little deceits and white lies, for all they can bring is bitter end.
Joined souls are the two above, they have filled eachsoul with love,
sad but true is the bitter end, where doom is the one who holds all's end.
The Seeker last is not as true; they only seek the lies of one.
Once found through this they search for the other Joined Souls,
and seek this one out by their faulty love and trust in one who deceives all.
Once found this devilish creature will aid the master plan,
but after all has ended they will assure no one is left.
Three others will aid this group of lies and faults and evil.
These three hold only good inside and will balance out the first scary trio.
Names these three do not have, for the Dark Souls of three must find,
put names to these, little dark ones, or all will fall into deaths night."
"This is the first half of 'The Dream Lake Prophecy'
…Go forth now to Kefira Aisling Kasei our Keeper of Souls."
With the last words spoken, Odin's staff struck the ground with a mighty force. The fabric of the heavens rippled…light became dark, night became day. Rivers flowed uphill and chaos seemed to rule the very universe. The circle of Gods and Goddesses shimmered and slowly, their forms united. There was a blinding flash of multi-colored lights all became silent. Order was restored.
Taking a deep breath, Odin looked around. He was alone and exhausted. "It is done. The Awakening begins."
