Shadow of the Hawk: Thriller Romance

shadowofthehawk_700x1059Defying death would make her stronger.

Kristina defied a lot and overlooked imperative clues in her search for a book of magic, but one clue she didn’t miss was the come-on from Grant.

How important are the clues in life, a wink from a handsome guy, a head nod from a superior, an unexpected smile? What about signs which are not obvious? Sometimes we need help to move forward and look for signs or clues.

To discover a missing object, heal a wounded spirit, rediscover the joy of life? Or cope with a loss.

To find love?

In Shadow of the Hawk , coming 2013 with Cobblestone Press Inc., I used the Iris Knot as a clue leading to Merlin’s book of magic. The book must be found in order to save the heroine’s brother.

Jimmy Dunn claims we do not know the exactly the origin of the Isis knot, which seems to illustrate a knotted piece of cloth, though initially its hieroglyphic sign was perhaps a variant of the ankh. Even in written sources the meaning and symbolism of this object, known as the tyet (tiet, thet) by the ancient Egyptians, seems to be similar to those of the ankh, and the sign is often translated as “life” or “welfare.”

Kristina and Grant discover the Iris Knot in many forms but one prominent clue leads the tight duo

to the Angel of the North located in Gateshead, UK.

What are your thoughts, do you think the Iris Knot looks similar to the Angel of the North?

If you write, do you use clues? How difficult are they to carry throughout the story?

As a reader do you enjoy foreshadowing, titillations?

Do you enjoy travel? Would you travel to another country simply from clues presented in an obscure manner? Trust would be needed, eh?

Kristina and Grant are delightful as a couple. His humor lightens her usual reserved nature. Being different is difficult enough in this world but pulling forth skills she never thought she’d have to use was frightening. Knowing Grant stood next to her, urging and supporting, allowed Kristina to come out of her shell and spark. They are wonderful together and to see their journey from friends seeking a common goal to become lovers is amazing and heartwarming because:

 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. Corinthians 13:4-8
