Is the ability to read minds a blessing or a curse?

When Antonius’s father dies, he must work to support his family. He finds employment as a servant in the Palazzo Ducal, home of Conte Valperga. Sixteenth-century Pesaro is a society governed by status, and Antonius has limited opportunities.

When a competition is announced, Antonius seizes his chance. The winner will be apprenticed to the town seer. Antonius shares first place with his employer’s son.

The two men compete for their mentor’s approval. As their knowledge of magic and alchemy grows, so does the rivalry and animosity between them. When the love of a beautiful woman is at stake, Antonius must find a way to follow his heart and navigate his future.

Japanese immigrant Harry Shikita dreams of becoming a successful businessman by building Rainbow Gardens, Minnesota’s first neon-lit motel. But the 1920s are a tough time to be an “Oriental” in America, and Harry must deal not only with prejudice and foul play, but also the trolls.

Yes, trolls–the kind that turn to stone. Cursed descendants of Cain, the trolls are trying to find their way back to God through their Redeemer. The trolls think Harry’s their guy, but he’s on his own quest to be accepted, to be an “old boy.”

Each time Harry’s slapped down, he gets up and starts again. But things only get worse for Harry after Pearl Harbor. Innocent of any wrongdoing, he finds himself interned for the duration of the war—while his son fights the Nazis in Europe.

If Harry finds a way to forgive his adopted country, can he become the trolls’ bridge to God’s Grace? The answer lies within the neon paradise of Rainbow Gardens.

Urban Fantasy – RHUNA Box Set (Books 1-3)

RhunaRHUNA Box Set (Books 1-3)
By Barbara Underwood
Published: May 2016
ASIN: B01FPFZ64E
Genre: Historical Fantasy, Magical Realism Urban Fantasy, Young Adult
Formats Available For Review: pdf, mobi, epub

This box set features the first three books in in the thrilling new Urban Fantasy series, Rhuna. (Book 1: Rhuna, Keeper of Wisdom, Book 2: Rhuna: Crossroads, Book 3: Rhuna, The Star Child)

Set in the ancient, mystical past when an idyllic Atlantis-like civilization flourished, and its people had exceptional powers to transform elements such as sand to stone and metal to gold with concentrated mental energy.

This utopian Atlan Empire is rocked when one of its most preeminent Masters rebels and seeks to subvert the ideals of Atlan society. Roaming the countryside in a black robe, misusing his powers on innocent people, he becomes known as the dreaded Dark Master.

On a distant and isolated island on the fringes of the Atlan Empire, a young girl named Rhuna comes of age when she meets a man from Atlán and learns that her father was an Atlan Master who was killed in his attempt to destroy the Dark Master.

Journeying across oceans and ancient worlds, Rhuna learns to master her inherent mental powers, transforming elements and summoning visions by means of the Gazing of the Waters. Unlike her peers, however, Rhuna discovers she has an extra power, namely the ability to summon visions mentally, without incantations or powders.

The first book in this extraordinary Urban Fantasy series lays the foundations of the Atlan Empire and Rhuna’s world, and even when the Dark Master appears to have been defeated, secret and sinister powers continue to threaten the ancient Utopia.

Books 2 & 3 are set in Ancient Egypt, where Rhuna journeys on an assignment to investigate strange reports of activities associated with the Dark Master. She soon discovers an astonishing underground network of the Dark Master’s followers, along with the secret group of Atlans dedicated to stopping them. In the process of trying to carry out her assignment, Rhuna is confronted with enormous challenges that could drastically change her entire life and everything she has ever believed in!

Residing in Ancient Egypt for a while, Rhuna’s personal life undergoes great upheavals, but the appearance of her father, whom she thought long dead, gives her life purpose and direction. The skills to perform Astral Projection and similar advanced techniques equip Rhuna for what is ahead, when a neighbouring country wages war on all Atlans living in Ancient Egypt!
