This   second   book   in   Jodine   Turner's   "Goddess   of   the   Stars   and   the   Sea"   series   is   every   bit as   intriguing   and   captivating   as   her   first,   The Awakening.   Each   novel   takes   place   at   a   turning point   for   the   spiritual   evolution   of   humankind;   The   Awakening   is   set   at   the   destruction   of Atlantis   and   the   Keys   to   Remember   in   fourth   century   England.   The   central   character,   six- year-old   Rhianna,   is   snatched   from   her   grandmother   who   practices   the   "old   ways"   and   raised in   a   Christian   abbey.   Shadowy   forces   and   complex   motivations   intertwine   among   the   sisters   of   the   abbey,   the priestesses,   and   the   purveyors   of   prophecy,   and   some   surprising   revelations   occur.   Rhianna   undergoes   many   a   test before   she   can   find   love   and   the   fulfillment   of   her   destiny.   Turner   knows   how   to   weave   a   story,   creating   a   world   both mythical and real in which you'll find yourself completely and enchantingly immersed! -Susan Dobra, Magical Blend Magazine, August 2005

The Awakening   tells   an   exhilarating   tale   of   the   final   days   of Atlantis   in   this   finely   crafted   page turner   by   Jodine   Turner.   Shaping   characters,   cities,   forests,   and   houses   in   visionary   detail (my   favorite   were   the   solar   crystals   used   to   take   the   ocean's   chill   out   of   the   homes),   Turner paints   a   vivid   portrait   of   political   deceit   and   power-hungry   greed   that   leads   to   the   fall   of   this formerly    utopian    society.    The    Goddess    intervenes    to    come    to    the    aid    of    a    young    girl, Geodran,   destined   to   be   a   high   priestess,   and   to   assist   her   in   birthing   the   new   era   of   civilization   for   humankind.   You will   lose   yourself   in   this   book   and   become   transported   to   an   ancient,   almost   forgotten   time   and   place,   where   very human struggles and triumphs unfold in very familiar ways. -Susan Dobra, Magical Blend Magazine, December 2003
