“We’ve strayed out of a safe line somewhere …”
James Kimble, a published author, is spending his Saturday afternoon at a book signing. Towards the end of the day, a striking woman walks up to him, stares menacingly into his soul, and announces, “You will do.” Without another word, she walks away. James is stunned by the unexpected encounter, yet has no idea how very much his life is about to change.
After the book signing, as James walks back to his car, he suddenly finds himself kidnapped by none other than this overpowering woman, who calls herself Grace. He comes to understand that this callous event serves as his introduction into the unscrupulous life of his captor. James has been targeted to pen a harrowing account of this astounding woman’s preternatural past. In unraveling the layers of her destructive life, James is compelled to confront his own life choices.
It was the first night of the Sacrificium, a night of sacrifice and death, a night when the black coins tendered in the Lottery would be tendered back. It was also the Hora Mille Semitis, the Hour of a Thousand paths—for that is the day the Sacrificium had fallen on this year—the hour when best friends might become enemies, when lovers of longstanding might betray oaths, the hour in which anything and everything was possible. And the alignment was felt: from the upper echelons of the capitol to the poorest quarters of the downriver provinces. For the message of Valdus’ rebellion had spread—whether it was a tract nailed to a door before quickly being torn down or a blast in the night that caused the power to fail in entire regions. It was a night for dreaming and for huddled collusions, for the breeze to course through rustling leaves, for long dead hearts to awaken and start pumping blood. The Sacrificium had once more come to Ursathrax, but so had the Hour of a Thousand Paths, and Valdus’ Revolution, and something else, something elusive but impossible to ignore, nebulous, but as real as the River Dire, which seemed to have stolen into the world on the wind itself.

Conley, Betty’s Books.

Love is the one thing so many of us desire to have in our lives, and yet, it is the one thing we so often fail to achieve. Sometimes we think we have to do or say something to earn someone’s love when what we fail to realize is that love, first and foremost, comes from God. Every kind of love we feel and share with others is a result of our spiritual connection to a power much greater and stronger than all of us.
When reflecting on the nature of this book, I wanted to share many poetic works I have drafted in the realm of love and friendship. I feel they are two sides of the same coin and the very things we need to sustain us and give us life. When it comes to matters of the heart, I have truly had some interesting experiences, so many of which I did not understand, yet the lessons I learned were profound.
The one thing I have learned is that love exists in many different ways and in many diverse forms in the areas of spiritual connections. Through the power of kindred spirits, I have come to feel the kind of love God wants each of us to enjoy and experience. I have heard that it is better to have loved and lost then to have never loved at all, and through the content of this book, you will feel the great power of love in many unique ways.
If you feel a lack of love in your life or feel you have not experienced the power of spiritual love in its greatest form, I sincerely hope you will enjoy this book, Magical Love Messages Between Kindred Spirits, as each chapter contains a special message of love that will transform your life and your connections with those to whom you feel special ties.
