Once Again – Tales of Destiny
Mara's mother forbade any talk of magic. This one rule leads to Mara's denial about all the magical manifestations she sees daily. At 20 years of age, she no longer notices seeing Wind Sprites and Ogres --until Aerrvin shows up.
Aerrvin is a Fairy Prince on a quest. He has decided to seek a bride from among the Humans of Seattle. After choosing Mara as his target, and using old magic, he intends to Transform Mara from a Human to a Fairy.
Mara reminds herself of the mantra her mother taught, "Magic is not real." At the same time, she encourages her dreams of flying about each night as a fairy to continue. Eventually, she seeks counseling to determine if what she sees is real.
Meanwhile, Morvayne has been spying on Mara all of her life. Some of those within the world of the Faire who practice the art of Dreaming know that she is a central figure in the future of all the world. Morvayne intends to exploit her for his own gain, which he can only do if she comes to believe in the reality of the Faire Realms.
So one little Purple Fairy tipped the scales by convincing Mara that---Magic is real.
About M. Kari Barr (Spokane, Washington Author)
M. Kari Barr was born in Boise, Idaho, but since her father was in the Air Force she lived all over the south from Tennessee to Virginia to Texas to California (not in that order). All those places and some of them twice before the age of 13. But her family settled down in Cheney, Washington in 1976 and she has not moved from the state since.
Because of all the moving, the one place where she found consistency was in the public library. Little Bear and Blueberries for Sal were always waiting to be read once again. In addition to encouraging a love of books, Kari's mother was a natural storyteller. Following her mother's example, Kari began writing later in life-- after having raised most of her children.Her mothers books were produced as audio books by Books in Motion under the name B. Boyd Robinson. Kari chose to self-publish and enjoys creating the covers.
The genre Kari loves most of all is fantasy. It simply sings to her. Her first book is part of a six book series involving the doings of girl-meets-fairy-boy, falls-in-love, gets-captured-by-evil-elf set in modern Seattle. Kari has also authored a few children's books most notably Thinktacular Thoughts for ages 4-10
