I am thrilled with the story line and surprised my son-in-law when I read the ending to him. The character using his name actually finishes the book off. This is amazing considering I wanted to kill him off, but then he convinced me to make sure I resurrected him - like they do in soap operas.
For those new to the series, I use family members and friends' names for my characters - the real people love this as they have a vested interest in their character and often give me ideas as to what their character should be doing. In the magical dimension called Anandria, names help to determine what powers they will possess. For example, I used my daughter's name, Diana, which means Moon Goddess, Deity of the Hunt, Divine One. Whenever Diana is in Anandria and the moon is up, she can use powerful magic. On Earth, where little magic exists, she loses her extraordinary abilities.
Getting back to Twisted Destiny, this story revolves around one main character, Ella. Ella was introduced in book 3, Destiny Fulfilled. She lived in England and when magic spilled onto Earth when a tear in the fabric between dimensions occurred, she discovered untapped, latent fairy magic. In other words, she had Anandrian blood from ancestors who had been stranded on Earth centuries ago and didn't know this about herself - she is a fairy!
In Twisted Destiny, we follow Ella through a journey of self-discovery. What she learns about herself is life-altering, for both herself and the rest of Anandria.
Currently, I am editing Twisted Destiny, then I will be sending it off to a professional editor for a final look before I publish it.
The blurb on the back of a book makes a reader want to pick it up and read it. So far, here's what I have come up with. The format using bullets is a little different, but there are so many story lines that interweave, I thought this might help describe a complex story. Let me know what you think!
Magic in Anandria has gone wonky and has split many of the characters apart that you have come to know and love.
- Ella, separated from her husband, is pursued by a fairy determined to make her his queen.
- Raonull, stuck on Earth, searches for a way to re-enter Anandria and find his bride, Ella.
- Jessica, Lucifer’s daughter, falls into Anandria and delights in the magical powers she feels – particularly dark magic.
- Jeff uncovers grim details about himself
- Paul drops into a love interest on Earth – literally.
- Michael takes on a heavenly role.
- Laura is stuck in a coma…
