...We are in the Waking!
Tina has found herself unbalanced and teetering at the spiraling edge of the long dark Abyss that separates reality from fantasy, night from day, Dreaming from Waking..
In her dreams, where dark forests and eternal twilight rule her carefully treasured fantasy world, where bands of sword wielding Elves and Fairies, and powerful Lords ravage and plunder the highways in a war that seems to span lifetimes, she is magical and gifted, a Goddess among the Fae�
But here, in the reality of the Waking, her world is harsh and cruel, her heart and soul ravaged by a very different sort of war, where emotions are strained, where temptation rules commonsense. The brightness of day reveals more truths than the twilight of the Dreaming.
Tina is torn between reaching for the forgiveness and salvation of all that is light and good, bound to a man she�d given her love, her heart to, saving him from certain death. Gabriel stands at the gate to redemption. But she is not ready to be redeemed.
Zack Daniels, standing with his back to her, represents something else altogether. He brings out that primal instinct to feed the beast forever starved for love, keeps her tied to him for reasons she does not see in the here and now. The volatile relationship was doomed from the beginning. But there is more in the darkness where he resides than meets the Waking eye�
Believing she is in control of her destiny, Tina will do whatever she needs to do to survive, both the horrendous images that plague her dreams and the frightening truths she must face every day she opens her eyes to a new dawning. She hungers for the fantasy world of her dreams, her only real escape from the reality of this world known as the Waking...
A gift from Charly...thanks
This is no mere mortal need;
No slow, smoldering desire �
This is Dante�s torrid tempest,
A Daemon�s breed of fire.
And I � so torn, so tempted - lie
Smiling, bared and bound upon the pyre.
