The Shimmering Flame

A Terran Realm Book

If you like your heroines feisty and your fantasy red-hot, this is a gem that you shouldn't miss.

Brigid's story kept me up half the night reading to find out where she would go and up the other reminiscing - about her and her two men. Jeanne Barrack spins a wondrous tale and has a deft hand with characterization. Brigid is a believable, likable heroine and Ethan and Gabe are truly the stuff of which dreams are made of.

Jeanne Barrack took much beloved mythology and breathed new life into it, hot steamy life at that. Of course, sizzling details aside, the idea of a god (or Terran, if you like) using a cell phone and a laptop to play solitaire is simple too much fun to pass up. I'm convinced that I won't be the only one hooked on Brigid's story, and not the only one sitting with bated breath to find out what happens next.

Book Blurb for The Shimmering Flame

The battle begun over 3,000 years ago wages on...

Brigid Kawsantower travels to Ireland with her husband, Gabe, unaware of the true reason for their trip--or her true identity--until she comes to the little town of Carrigclarseach. There she learns of the Terrans, a clandestine group of supernatural beings who struggle to keep the earth in balance.

Brigid is a Terran Water and Fire Keeper--and the daughter of Dagda, a powerful Water Keeper, and at one time the leader of the Terrans of ancient Eire. Retreating before invading forces, he concealed Brigid's spirit until the day when her help is needed to defeat Nimhnach, a maniacal Destroyer, who seeks to gain eternal life and world domination.

Can Brigid believe enough in her newfound powers to fulfill her destiny?

Gabe is a Terran Protector with a secret--can he protect Brigid from Nimhnach's plans and his own dark desires?

Irish archeologist, Ethan Clark, is a Terran Singer and Air Keeper. Ages ago he was Dagda's harper and right-hand man. And ages ago, Ethan was Brigid's lover. Should he try to regain her love?

Now they all must work together to vanquish Nimhnach before he unleashes a terror that will enslave the world and destroy Brigid's loves--past, present ... and future.
