The Gazing Globe

Book 2 in the Tales of the Order series.

Candace Sams is a writer in The Gazing Globe that asks questions in the third person format. I would rather the writer fabricate passion of the characters, impetuous proceedings, or any other vice to get me thinking in the right frame of mind for the continuation of the story. Dialogue would be a great way to help pique the interest of the reader.

The story is mildly entertaining but the dedicated character Afton is enjoyable. Blain sounds like he’d be fun to watch, but not much upstairs. Lots of things are going on around him and he doesn’t have a clue! I would not recommend this story.

Book Blurb for The Gazing Globe

Book 2 in the Tales of the Order series.

Before his parents died, Blain McTavish lived a peaceful life as a farmer in a quiet Maine town. Now two mysterious women have arrived from England — and they seem to be trying to protect him from harm. But who would want to hurt Blain? And why does he feel compelled to run naked in the forest at night?

Afton O'Malley wishes she could be a better Druid. When her mentor, Shayla, the Sorceress of the Order, asks her to accompany her to the States, she is eager to take on the task. When she meets Blain, the feelings he stirs in her are proof positive that magic is more than spells and shapeshifting.

Blain does not know the extent of the danger around him, or of his latent fairy and Druid powers. With Afton's help, he must come to understand his destiny — and take his place within the Order.
