Trintiy: Three Kinds of Wicked Series Book 12 by Nicki Risk
At the end of his long travails, Trey can finally go home to Elethereum to reclaim Sage from the Cradle of Displaced Souls, where she has been sentenced to await him. Trey's plan, after being reunited with Sage, is to find some way to free Russ from the torments of a suicide's hell. Even though Russ's body has been destroyed, his soul lives on, and Trey can't stand the thought of Russ's suffering. How can he and Sage live and love while knowing that Russ is an anguished soul? They can't. It's simply impossible. But Trey encounters a problem when he returns to Elethereum. His nemesis Diadra, in league with the forces of evil, has managed to steal Sage from her lullaby tank in the Cradle. And Diadra won't reveal where Sage has been hidden. Sage doesn't know where she is. She has almost no memory of anything other than a wooden door, a purple light, and a woman who whispered a new lullaby into Sage's ear. Part mantra, part hypnotic instruction, the lullaby controls Sage's ability to think, to feel, even to move. But she knows she must fight the effects of the lullaby, even if she can't remember why. Sage finds a way to work her lullaby's instructions to her advantage, and as a result, she regresses through her many past lives. In each of these lives, she sees a man she thinks of as her husband -- Russ, always hiding from her, always fighting against their intimacy. And she also sees Trey and knows him for who he is, even if she shies away from understanding what he hopes to accomplish. As Trey fights to find her, Sage relives each of their past lives together. This past life regression changes everything. Where in the past, she had always been destined to bond with her husband, now Trey is a part of their love and life cycle. Over and over, Trey repairs the preordained pair-bond by inserting himself into it. The two have become three. The Couple is now a Trinity. Trey did not know that this would be the effect of his efforts. He knows a Trinity is the most stable form in nature and the most sacred form in heaven. A Trinity can never be diminished. But this means he can no longer simply rescue Sage and try to find some measure of comfort for Russ's soul. He must find a way to reunite all three of them, body and soul, in the human timeline on earth. Is this an impossible task? Or is it the fulfillment of the Creator's most mysterious prophecy? Love is human. Love is divine. Love alone can transcend time. To My Reader: Have you ever wondered who you might have been in a past life? Sage never did, not until the moment she began her past life regression. Now she's learning page by page just who she used to be -- and how that changes who she's destined to become! Enjoy!
