Shadow Dreams by Teri Barnett
Nestled in the plane of Paran, a peaceful town is shocked when some of their children go missing. The disappearances are portents to the re-emergence of the ancient priestess cult of Eitel, one known for stealing souls to gain immortality. Bethany M'Doro is a Healer and a Knower, assisting diggers on an archeological site by connecting artifacts and their owners. But even with her psychic abilities, she never envisioned the kidnapping of her own daughter, Sarah. Connor Jessup never forgave himself for letting his wife Elizabeth leave him so easily. He turned his back on his Nevada town, and on himself. When Bethany's latest excavation places the remains of Elizabeth at the center of the cult of Eitel, she knows she must travel to the Earth plane and seek Connor's help. Arriving in shadow form, she first meets Connor in his dreams. He believes she's an angel and gladly goes with her back to Paran. Once there, he comes to understand Bethany's true nature, and finds himself drawn into the search for her missing daughter and the connection to his wife. Now they must unravel the dark secrets behind the ancient cult and find Sarah before she's lost forever. As their quest unfolds, they discover an even deeper unexpected journey - one filled with sorrow, loss, and redemption.
