Dominick loathed Rychard and God for taking away his beloved pregnant wife Isabella. He vowed that he would regain his love one day, but continued to fight for the Great One’s priests in defending what remained of Charlemagne’s once proud empire.
Over several lives during the next millennium, Dom rejected the notion of a new love having never recovered from the loss of his beloved Isabella. He reputes any other love, as Dom only wants Isabella.
Opera singer Laris Thiessen suffers disturbing dreams in which the repetitions which occurs every night makes her weary and wary. When she meets Dom, Laris realizes he is the co-star of what has taken on nightmarish proportions every time she sleeps. Now if he can only convince her to believe that they once shared a love of a shortened lifetime that deserves eternity by escaping into their pasts. Still, his enemy stalks them, but perhaps Dom will find the solace he has lacked for a thousand years.
DOMINION is a very complex romance that uses reincarnation, time travel, and other religious celestial elements to provide readers with a deep tale. Because of the complexities of the plot, the novel starts off slow as Melanie Jackson needs time to introduce the various elements and key players to the audience. Give the story line a chance because once it shifts into gear it never slows down until the climax enabling the obsessed Dom to hook the audience as he battles with the Heavens for love.
