Circle of Grace

Island Magic Trilogy

Jan King’s latest release, Circle of Grace, is a wonderfully imaginative passionate story.

This is the first book in her Island Magic Trilogy. Catherine, with the help of her two best friends, Maggie and Rory, discover that they are cosmically connected to one another and to the magic gifts they possess. Gabe comes to the island on doctor’s orders to de-stress himself. Upon seeing Catherine he realizes that his priorities have changed. Catherine and her friends must come to terms with their gifts in order to break a deadly cycle of tragedy, and in the middle of all, Gabe and Catherine find a love they have only dreamed of.

This is a beautifully written story that captures the imagination and heart of the reader. Jan King’s characters come alive with each word and they feel as if you have known them forever. I love paranormal books and this is one that is definitely going on my keeper list. The author blends all of the pieces of the storyline together seamlessly, but still leaves you wanting more. I can’t wait for the next book in her trilogy. This book show us what happens when the bonds of love and friendship are put to the test by destiny and things out of control of human hands. I really liked this book and recommend it to anyone.
