New from North Carolina

July 30, 2006 

North Carolina native C.G. Walters uses an ancient legend as the foundation for his metaphysical love story "Sacred Vow" (Dragon's Beard Publishing, $13.95, paper, 273 pages). It holds that "when the magic of loving commitment is not believed in, or not being practiced, it begins to fade and die." That notion animates the saga of Ian Sarin, who is drawn to a mystical woman who is not of this world. As he travels into her world and various other realities -- and sees new dimensions in life -- Ian and Katerina become key elements in an effort to stop the growing rift in the Collective Consciousness, which threatens everyone.
