About Darlene Jones

A long time ago, I lived in Mali. Every single day, I wished I could wave a magic wand to relieve the heart-wrenching poverty. The story line of my books reflects my desire to wave that wand and make the world a better place. If only wishes could come true. And of course, every novel needs its love story, so along with the sci-fi magic, I’ve added the requisite romance.

Initially, I intended to write “a” novel. The story and characters took over and the ending of the first demanded another. Two books became three and three became four.

I've always believed we can't be the only beings existing in the vastness of the universe. There must be others “out there somewhere” and I brought some of them along for the ride. The setting stays, for the most part, within the realities of our world, but I've found that I love the magic the sci-fi element of other beings can bring to the story.

Review by: Melanie Robertson-King on Sep. 26, 2012 :
This is the third novel by Darlene Jones. Following in the footsteps of Embattled and Empowered.

From page 1, I found myself drawn into the story, and immediately sympathized with Abby who was receiving messages from an alien being.

Throughout the novel, there were a number of unexpected plot twists which led to a very satisfying read.

Now I need to go back and read Darlene's first two novels.

Review by: Anneli Purchase on Sep. 16, 2012 :
As I read Embraced, I identified with the character of Abby. What would I do if I were Abby and heard annoying clickings in my teeth? I’d be extremely worried that something was wrong with me. What if the sounds were like a code being tapped out? I’d wonder if I was losing my mind. But what if it turned out that they really were messages from some supreme being “up there”? It sure isn’t something I’d tell anyone about. They’d think I was crazy.
Abby is in a real dilemma. And then things get worse for her. She meets the most beautiful man she’s ever seen in her life. He says he loves her, but he betrays her. Or does he? He’s in and out of her life. He asks her if she thinks she’s lived before. He visits without seeming to have to open a door – simply appears. Is he real? She wants him to go away so she can get her sanity back, but can’t bear it when he’s gone from her life.
And the messages? They tell her to write letters to fix things in the world. And it works! But it’s all so overwhelming for her.
Embraced will keep you turning pages to find out how Abby will deal with the bizarre things going on in her life. The author engages and entertains the reader from start to finish. Expertly written and thoroughly enjoyable.
