Crazy Weather, True Love & the Natural Balance of All Things by Vanna Smythe
Posted by Krystal Larson at 11:11 AM Tuesday, December 4, 2012
Weather has been odd these past few years. You will likely agree with that, whichever part of the world you call home.
Such odd, uncharacteristic, ominous weather is precisely the sort of thing Joinings, as described in my debut fantasy novel Protector (Anniversary of the Veil, Book 1), can prevent. In the world I created in Protector, the energy released as two who love each other truly come together, can be used for many ends. The two that make such a pair are called a Beacon and an Answer, and it is the Catalyst who releases their energy, then guides it towards the wrong that needs to be righted.
However, such an arrangement is not natural. The energy of true love is being used and abused, made to flow at the bidding of people.
The main question raised in Protector is whether true love is stronger than any of the rules imposed, stronger than over 1000 years of tradition.
Yet at the heart of the story are the characters. They are the ones who must deal with these issues and whose decisions will ultimately lead to the final answer.
There is Protector Kiyarran, or Kae, whose whole world unravels in the first few days after his biggest dream comes true. He becomes a Protector of the Realm, an elite soldier, only to find out that the secrets they kept from him are enough to make the world an entirely different place. To top it all off, out of nowhere, he now feels strong love for Princess Issiyanna.
Issiyanna, or Issa, is to wed a man she does not love. There is another whom she dreams of most every night and he is the one she loves beyond all. That is because she is a Beacon, and people have been sent to collect her.
Will natural love blossom, or will the world continue as it has for the past 1000 years? Will true love still be used as only a tool, a means to an end?
Well, I’m not going to tell you that right now. Those answers will come in the upcoming, Book 2 of the Anniversary of the Veil series, called Decision Maker, which will be available soon!
