"Gift of Fire burns away fear and brings love to stubborn Shapshifter"
Damask Circle #1
Madeline Smith waited in fear for
the 'ghost' of Jon Barnett to appear again. Her psychic
powers were something her family and deceased husband had
impressed upon her as undesirable. But when Jon mentioned
that her nephew was in danger, she put aside her fears and
went to Jon's aid.
Jon's contacts with the Seline [witch mentioned briefly in
DANCING WITH THE DEVIL] are brief, but it is mentioned that
he is part of a worldwide group of protectors known as the
Damask Circle. 16 teens were known to be missing with
Madeline's nephew number 17. As a member of the Damask
Circle, Jon was here to battle the evil magic and end the
terror. After receiving Madeline's help, he wanted her
gone somewhere safe but she refused to leave while her
nephew was in danger. So together they used whatever they
could to rescue the 2 teens that only had until the new
moon to live.
Jon believes that he should spend his life separate because
anyone associated with him would be in danger from his
enemies. When the evil sorceress uses Madeline against
him, his belief is reinforced. He battles his feeling of
love with duty.
This Paranormal adventure has an undercurrent of romance,
but most of the story is the drama of the battle of good
and evil with Madeline coming to learn to accept herself
and her special gifts. Madeline's love and need to help
her nephew open the door to her growth and her love for Jon
completes the circle. I am looking forward to other
appearances of Seline and stories in the Damask Circle --
CIRCLE OF DEATH is expected May 2002.
