The journey begins with a dream that is not a dream...
In Part One of this epic adventure, the story unfolds in the provincial town of Noble, where twelve-year-old Heather Nighborne is considered different, strange indeed, seeing auras and befriending the mysterious Aria. Yet, when the time comes for the extraordinary Bristol House to awaken Heather to her true identity and arduous destiny, a grisly incident on the house grounds complicates the girl's rite of passage: her introduction to the magical Realm of Evermore, the land of Maidens.
In Part Two, the adventure continues, as Heather Nighborne, her best friend Molly Pringle, and their most unusual tour guide find themselves in Autumnsloe, one of the four planet kingdoms of Evermore. But when Heather impulsively deviates from the Parade Day Schedule of Events, the lighthearted excursion soon becomes a fantastic and dangerous journey, an immersion into a land in ominous transition.
The Ruins of Evermore, The TimeLight Awakenings is the first in a series of novels that will take the heroine from age twelve into adulthood and from small town Earth to the exotic planets of Evermore. Over the course of this intricately woven and epic adventure, two vivid and intertwined worlds take shape, highlighted by humor and magic, and shaded with danger and tragedy.
"It was so gripping, tension-filled, unexpected...Also, the ending couldn't have been better...I feel rather sad though, that my sojourn in Noble and Evermore is over for the time being...it makes me want to go out and get the next book "
"Not predictable at all. All the characters are very real, very real."
"Sure do love the house, every child's fantasy."
"I think Heather and Molly are believable characters and compliment each other. Molly's admiration of Heather is evident, and Heather's appreciation and gratitude for Molly's acceptance of her also comes over."
..".creepy...I am assuming that it is Heather and Molly, and wondering how the heck they are going to get out of it..."
"Loved the costumes, how do you think of this stuff?"
"I'm 2/3 of the way through it. Frankly, it's not my kind of book, but I want to see how it comes out I've never read this type of literature before."
"I need more. I was up until 1:30 with nothing to interrupt me. So much action, who could go to sleep?"
..".I was taken to another plane...swept away with the beauty of your imagery, and the fearlessness of your imagination "
"We should have a time with all readers to get together and talk about the book, the clues along the way, the rooms in the house..."
"Such an awesome heroine...Oh, I just LOVE Heather...with all her teenage lack of confidence. She is so nice and good and the world needs more like her. Not just in Evermore, but here on earth too."
..".And NERVE-WRACKING Will I survive this I can feel my blood pressure go up as I read "
" Very exciting, very rich, very suspenseful...although I'm looking forward very much to the next chapters, I am also feeling a little bittersweet about this book ending."
"So I sat down and read like 100 pages without even thinking about it today. So much death So much destruction And for some reason that scene with Mistraya and Bayliss was the most brilliant Such a creepy child...with an agenda of her own."
..".created a whole world and it's wonderful and magical and scary and delightful...I hope this story will be shared with many, many others. It is so very worthy of that."
