Twin Souls was my first completed series. It draws on some of the Native American myths and legends I grew up hearing in New Mexico, and adds in a little of my own creativity. This series was inspired by Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time Series. There really aren’t similarities in the stories, but reading his work made me want to write fantasy. This series actually started out as full-fledged fantasy, but I felt it would work better as urban fantasy and made the switch.
Twin Souls (book 1)
He avoids her because of the strange physical pain he feels when they touch. She avoids him because the way everyone seems to do what he says scares her. But when Claire needs to escape a bad situation Uriah is the first person she thinks of, and he is eager to rescue her. Faced with each other for the first time, both Uriah and Claire find it impossible to listen to their fears and stay away from one another. They soon find out, though, that there is more than they ever thought possible trying to keep them apart.
Following tradition the pair approaches the Elders of their Tewa tribe to ask permission to marry. Everyone is shocked when the shaman refuses them, claiming they are not Twin Souls. Confused and angry Uriah refuses to listen, and promises them that he will never abandon Claire. When Claire is poisoned by her vindictive father his resolve is tested. Ancient Native American myths and legends spring into reality, doing everything they can to keep Uriah from saving Claire’s life, while beginning to reveal the truth behind the lies he has been told all his life.
Shaxoa’s Gift (book 2)
After losing Claire to the Twin Soul bond Uriah intends to seek out the Matwau and let the monster have exactly what he wants, Uriah’s death. Only the words of the shaman who has already betrayed him more than once stops him. Her promise that there is still a chance of saving Claire from the bond and keeping her love for Uriah whole sends him on a new hunt to find the splinter group of Tewa Indians and the Shaxoa rumored to have more power and knowledge than anyone has seen in centuries.
No matter the price, Uriah promises to find the Shaxoa and rescue Claire from the fate she does not want, while Claire makes her own promise to hold off the cruel desires of the Twin Soul bond. Keeping their promises won’t be easy. It may require more of them than they ever could have imagined. As Uriah searches for a way to break the bond and Claire becomes desperate for anything that will help her resist it, both learn truths about themselves that will change everything.
Qaletaqa (book 3)
Claire never thought she would be the one saving anybody’s life. She never thought she would find out she had a secret destiny, either. Finding Uriah is Claire’s top priority because without her he will never be able to defeat the Matwau, but she needs help from the one person she trusts least. Quaile. The shaman reluctantly hands over the book Claire needs. Claire takes the book desperately hoping it will hold the answers she needs to save Uriah’s life.
The book does hold answers, but not to everything.
The answers Claire and Uriah need most cannot be gained from any book. They must come from lost memories, acceptance of destiny, and looking outside of reality. When the answers are finally found they will threaten to break them both. The prices asked of them may finally be too high. If they are, their deaths will only be the beginning.
