Author(s): 

Hastings (aka hot talent Maureen Child) launches a troubling and darkly riveting new Awakening series, based in an alternate reality where an irrational fear of witches has destroyed civil liberties. For the heroine in this story to survive, she must face past- life obligations and current dangers. This series starter begins laying the foundation of an intricate mythos that promises exciting future exploration. Good stuff indeed!

Ever since her aunt was burned at the stake 10 years ago for being a witch, Shea Jameson has stayed on the move. The reintroduction of magic into the world has had devastating consequences as governments hunt, imprison and kill women suspected of being witches. Torin is an eternal, one of the immortal guardians and destined mates to the reincarnated witches. Centuries ago, a coven’s quest for power nearly destroyed the world, so in atonement they gave up magic; but now the awakening is upon them and the reincarnated witches and their eternals must reconstruct a dangerous artifact. It will not be easy as fanatics and those seeking ultimate power hunt the lovers at every turn. (SIGNET ECLIPSE, Feb., 368 pp., $7.99)
