"a fun Matrix of Destiny novella"
Meanwhile back on Aviara...
It seems Lorgin is experiencing fluctuations in his Charl
powers that Yaniff believes may be an indication that he
will experience an increase in his abilities. The tenth
level mystic-in-training, Rejar continues to exasperate his
Charl Master, Yaniff; who in turn continues to subtly
manipulate the brooding Traed into the Charl way of life.
As the Earth holiday of Valentine's Day approaches, Deana
is bored with her contented life and looking for a way to
stir things up; just for fun. And what better way than to
bring her own version of this romantic holiday to the Charl
Knights and Familiars of Aviara? Well, Deana may have
bitten off more than she bargained for when Lorgin decides
to beat her at her own game.
I'm happy to see that our favorite Charls and Familiars
haven't lost any of their sexy charm...or endearing
arrogance. This novella was like catching up with old
friends, I had a smile on my face the entire time I was
reading. Deana is still her mischievous self and all of the
characters that fans have come to know and love make an
appearance. This satisfying short will sooth the nerves of
even the most addicted Matrix of Destiny reader, and
provide just enough fun to hold us over until Ms. Joy gives
her loyal readers what they have been dying for, a new
release. Welcome back Dara, we have missed your unique
voice, and of course your sexy alphas!
