If she had never been at a crossroad before, Daria found herself at one now.
With one foot in the distant past, the other remains firmly entrenched in the present. Daria tries to come to terms with the memories of her previous life as they inundate her mind on an endless loop. Can she deal with the past and find a way to walk the path that is laid out for her future? Is she brave enough to face her destiny, or will she walk away?
Iauron has his Queen back…or does he? His is aware of Daria’s lingering doubts about him as she tries to retain her humanity in the face of remembering and accepting who she once was. Though the main threat to her life is temporarily incapacitated, he knows it cannot, and will not, remain that way forever.
Not fully Verisiel nor Daria, is she strong enough to meet the coming threat head on? Can she come into her powers and stand by his side? Can he let her go if she cannot accept the whole truth of her situation?
Big questions remain with few answers in sight, and time is running out.
An amazing heartfelt book. This story is about the illusion of time and how this luxury can be easily taken away. Daria has been whisked away to the fae realm. She has been told she is Veriseil, the fae queen and she struggles with this day in and day out. She has always been an independent woman and feels like she is drowning in this new world and life. She has no say in this and it wrecks her emotionally. Iauron, the fae king, is ecstatic that he has found his queen. But how does he show her that he loves Daria and not just Veriseil. There is a delicate push and pull between the characters that becomes intense at times. And low and behold…the bad guy is still out there and will stop at nothing to bring down the fae queen. And what happens when you mess with fate? Karma comes back tenfold to all involved. This is truly a wonderful story of true love….and new love. A beautiful follow up to Beyond the Veil of Whispered Dreams. I can’t to see what Jolanthe Aleksander comes up with next!
Jolanthe is a Marine Corps Brat and proud of it. The nomadic life of the military helped her love of reading and books became her friend.
A dancer, Jolanthe was a member of the CBA team and the Fury and appeared in several productions in the area theaters circuit. She gave up her role of dancer/actress for her greatest role to date, that of Mother to a son who reminds her every day to find joy in the simplest of things and to use her imagination.
Missing the stage, and at the prompting of some on-line friends, Jolanthe gave rp-ing with an internet group a try. There she found and developed her skill as a writer.
When not working, writing, or keeping up with her son, Jolanthe can be found scouring antique shops, used bookstores, and of course, reading.
