“This book is a work of art!”
Brigitte is an emissary of nature chosen to renew the treaty between Atlantis and the ancient bloodline of Lemuria. Her sacred betrothal would renew the elemental function of the Crystal Grid that powers the ten kingdoms of Atlantis. But her people are attacked by a storm of shadows, and now she is running for her life.
Upon her arrival in the ruling city, she meets D’Vinid, a dejected musician who lives the quintessential Atlantean lifestyle of revelry, escapism and apathy. Under the eclipse of a holy festival, they are swept into an attraction they cannot resist. Their union may protect humanity from its worst enemy – the shadows of Atlantis. But there is one problem, this man is not her betrothed.
Brigitte discovers the Grid is corrupted by psychic parasites that feed off human suffering, an epidemic called “the madness”. The rituals required to charge the Grid with psychic emanations have been poorly attended, and this has caused the Grid to malfunction. But as nature always strives toward balance, the crystals have activated a genetic upgrade among the people. The youth have begun to express supernatural powers. Could it be that D’Vinid and Brigitte are meant to be leaders among the awakened? And if so, why is it impossible for them to be together?
A mysterious tale of romance, seduction and betrayal that reaches just enough into the modern mind to ask – will we learn the lessons of Atlantis?

If Fulcrum seduced you with the men of Atlantis, you will be utterly bewitched by the women in Enigma…
Tragedy has struck the royal family of Atlantis, leaving the citizens in mourning, and its governance in question. The king has sent his league of investigators to hunt down those he feels to be responsible.

They will not take the blame for the actions of those who are truly responsible… their own kindred who have learned to wield the Shadows of Atlantis.

Shadows of Atlantis Prequel 3
Dark days are on the horizon.
As the princes of Atlantis deal with their sudden change in precedence, D’Vinid is banished from the palace by the king. But he’s not entirely sure why. There are rumors, of course, and none of them are true. He has no choice but to assume the king is given to flights of fancy and that’s putting it mildly. There is no alternative but to stick to the streets, and the protective shelter of Pan Aello. But he still has that pesky fame to contend with, and Sulia Tierro is nowhere to be found.
Meanwhile, Vinesia adjusts to life as a commoner while Fa’nariel infiltrates the palace. The two women have more in common than they know. Both are on the trail of the Children of One, and both might have to accept that there is more going on here than they had even dared to imagine.
They are all being watched by a dangerous foe who seems to have fooled the world into thinking the Shadows of Atlantis are on their side.
More of the luscious scenery of Atlantis is revealed in this seductive third installment of the prequel saga; a psychological masterpiece by the critically acclaimed author and “Queen of Atlantis” Mara Powers.
