In a world where anything can happen, illusions are just the beginning
Love defies all odds, but not without a price. In the year 1736, hidden in the Scottish Highlands, turmoil goes beyond the battle of good and evil. Human Angels (Spirians), battle the Fallen (Shadows), to restore balance on Earth. Shanuk has more gifted power than the elders have seen for centuries, but his ego and temper make him a dangerous lure for the nefarious Shadows, of whom he has already gained interest. When they take Calla, his intended mate, Shanuk sets on a course of destruction to gain her back.
Fueled by vengeance and the need to reclaim what is his, Shanuk’s powers increase, which is precisely what the Shadows want. To save Calla and the Spirian clan, he must control his eminent power or fall victim to the Shadows’ seductive charm. Is he the hope the Angel’s had prophesied, or will he become their most formidable foe?
Spirians: The Beginning by Rowena Portch is an interesting novel. I’m not an avid paranormal fiction reader, but when I do read one, I expect the novel to be perfect. Spirians: The Beginning was that and more. The story was well paced and perfect. I was never bored or wanting to skip a few pages. Shanuk’s dilemma is described beautifully and his attraction to Calla was very well timed. Armen, of course, was awesome. I wish I had a guardian angel like that. The story is brilliant.
