Magic – Do you believe?
It seems in every culture throughout history there has been mention of magic. Some would say it doesn’t exist, some would argue it does. How can something so widely spoken about not be real? And if it is real, how do you prove it?
The wonderful thing about writing fiction is that I can include all kinds of paranormal elements in my worlds. The world in my Dark Sword series is most definitely filled with magic. Both my heroines and heroes hold magic, though in different ways.
My heroes are warriors with primeval gods inside them giving them immortality as well as enhanced senses and the ability to control something be it water, people’s minds, or the very air you breathe. The gods also transform my Warriors. Each god favors a color, so when unleashed, the heroes turn the color of their god. They also have fangs and claws, and some even have horns and wings. It has been fun matching heroes to their powers.
My heroines are Druids, blessed with certain magical abilities that will aid the heroes in defeating the evil spreading over their world. There are two sects of Druids in the series – the mie, or pure Druids, who practice healing and using their magic for good. Then there are the droughs who go through a ritual that binds their souls with evil to create black magic.
In DARKEST HIGHLANDER (Jan 31, 2012) the heroine, Sonya, is a Druid. Sonya is able to use her magic to heal, but she also holds very rare magic in being able to communicate with the trees. One of her greatest fears, however, is that her magic will fail her when she needs it most. She will have to look deep inside herself, to the magic that is leaving her in order to save the one man who holds her heart in his hands from the evil they’ve been fighting.
In the acclaimed Dark Sword series, the darkest, fiercest warriors of Scottish legend finally meet their match—in the brave, fiery hearts of the women they cherish…
HE IS HER SALVATION
For years, Broc has watched over her, protected her—and hidden his love for her. But when his beautiful Sonya finds herself in a hopeless situation, the Highlander flies to her side to save her. Unfortunately, before the Druidess can thank him, Broc is captured by his enemy and destined for eternal pain…
SHE IS HIS DESTINY
Sonya vows to help her noble warrior, though he is imprisoned in a mountain of pure evil—bound in chains of the darkest magic. With Sonya’s own magic fading, she must summon the greatest power of all to save the man she loves. But even if these two hearts are united, will they be strong enough to defeat the heart of darkness? Or will their undying love doom them for all eternity…?
My question is: If you could have any kind of power, what kind would you have?
