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: Anneli Purchase on April 28, 2013 :
Em is back again. From Em in Embattled, and her reincarnations as Jasmine in Empowered and Abby in Embraced, Emily (Em) is at last coming to terms with her obsession about that other world “up there.” She is almost powerless to resist the pull that draws her like a magnet to Yves’s world. Their love is never in question; only Emily’s acceptance of it is.
We are drawn into the story so completely that we forget that planet hopping is probably not possible. As we are engrossed in the novel, interplanetary travel becomes quite acceptable and we welcome any new magic-like tricks.
Most of the citizens of the new world are welcoming and friendly, but Algar immediately gets Emily’s alarm bells ringing. Not only is he obnoxious, but he appears to be behind an evil plot that could ruin Yves's world.
Emily must come to terms with choosing whether to stay and help Yves fight the evil plot, or throw away his love and go back home to the security of Earth.
