She encounters two unknown and unusual entities late one night. A slight woman and a large and dark man who is a gargoyle or Goji as his personage is known. They take Calista Barron or “Callie” under their wing to protect her. They help her to identify what and just who she is… She finds out more about herself and her past than she could ever have imagined! She embarks on a training regimen for an event that will challenge her mentally and emotionally. And which will change the supernatural world for the better… if she is successful. If she fails the result could be a disastrous undoing of the whole supernatural world as it is today. Author Cole has written her second book, the first in a series, and here she sets the tone and a rhythm that will keep you up well past your bedtime. There is action and emotion running throughout that will keep you wanting more, chapter after chapter. She has created a real fan in me with her second book. Most highly recommended !

This is an adult Fantasy tale, the first of three set in “reality,” a universe of Gods, Fates, Humans and Hands. Surprisingly, this is actually a love story. It is a story of a variety of types of love: the love of parent and child, the love of a friend for a friend, the love of a man and a woman, and the love of a God for his creation. In the “reality” of this series, Chaos is the creator God whose creations include the Universe, Humans and Hands. Hands appear human to those without “sight,” but are, in reality, various types of non-human beings with talents, powers and affinities peculiar to their own sorts. When Chaos created Humans and Hands, he decreed that Hands must hide their nature from Humans. To enforce this rule and to maintain peace among the various types of Hands, he also created the Fates or “Moirae,” three sisters with special powers to compel obedience by Hands. This story tells of the end of the rule of the Fates and the beginning of freedom and self-government for the Hands. Only bits and pieces of the rules and history of “reality” are revealed here. Events are told from the point of view of Calista Barron, an adopted daughter of a wealthy and shady businessman who kept Calista from contact with the world until she managed to run away from the tyranny of him and his wife. Calista is a bartender in Mystic Blue, a quiet bar in a quiet location. After work one evening, she is attacked by a mugger and fears he was sent by her father to bring her back. As she collapses and faints from the assault, she sees her rescuer towering over her assailant and meets her destiny, a Goji, called Bale. During the rest of the novel she becomes acquainted with “reality” and learns of and trains for her role in the events that will change the world forever. She meets “Hands” of many sorts and sees the injustices and confusion that the Fates have created in trying to force their will upon Humans and the many varieties of “Hands” and she learns how Chaos has taken steps to repair that damage. She also learns her own nature and learns to love others and to be loved, necessary steps in the redemption of a world. This is an interesting book, although it presents only a fragmentary view of the world of “reality.” The characters are endearing and sharply drawn, but motivations are difficult to discern. In a few cases, the author explains and the characters become even more interesting, even the blood hounds. Mostly, though, events move the story along and explanations must wait upon later volumes. It promises to be an interesting series. Reviewed by: Philip K. Jones, October, 2015
This is not a genre I normally read. However, now that I have become acquainted with Bale and Callie, I look forward to reading more of their adventures. I'm hooked!!
