About the Book:
Mitch Walker is the newest member of The Order. He receives 2 gifts that he struggles to master. One of these gifts shows him the private desires of his coworker Jill Reese, the woman every man in the office would like to have. Jill has a secret desire for Mitch, and this knowledge distracts the young Druid from mastering his gifts.
As Mitch struggles with his gifts, and feelings for Jill, a serial killer stalks the streets of Boston. He kills at each full moon, in different areas of the city. The Druids learn that the killer is conducting a dark ritual that will plunge the whole world into chaos if completed. Mitch has an added stake in stopping the madman. He knows that Jill will be the final victim, and she’ll be the lucky one if the Druids can’t stop the killer.
A fantastic glimpse into what living the life of a Druid with extraordinary gifts may be like. From the moment you begin this story, you are sucked into a life of visions and magic. You are introduced to the light and the dark in this expertly crafted novel. The vivid descriptions and free flowing events put you in Falnon and Jill’s place, as they attempt to help The Order stop a demonic serial killer stalking the streets of Boston.
The tension and stress surrounding many heart-pounding moments leap from the page, as you are carried on waves of emotion on this journey. The only fault in this entire books is the love scenes are to clinical and rushed. With all of the fear and other emotions, the blooming romance between the main characters almost seems like an afterthought.
Intriguing and heart-stopping in its intensity, Druids Dawning is the perfect beginning to the Neo Druid series. I can’t wait to explore the many more adventures to be had by The Order.
