The explosion shattered the Bedrock; everyone considered it destroyed until it transmits a telepathic message to Adept Diana to send for a healer. Everyone agrees that something must be done to restore the balance by saving the key source of magick and protection for this stronghold.
The selection of who will perform the task seems odd. Failed Healer Sulis believes she is too inept to do the job needed to help the injured Bedrock. She will be accompanied by Mage Llyr, selected because he knows first hand the Bedrock; he has his own demons of remorse as his soulmate died in the explosion that he survived.
The unlikely duo begins their trek, but enemies want to finish the destruction of the Bedrock in order to bring chaos to the land and will try to kill the healer and the mage to accomplish their agenda. Unless this pair can bond, they will fail. As they struggle to survive, bonding forms when love flows between these two walking wounded souls if both take a chance on the other.
The “Magick” romantic fantasy series is some of the best tales on the market today. The current novel, HEALING MAGICK, is a wonderful work that sub-genre readers will enjoy as a stand alone or with its predecessors (see MAGICK and MORE THAN MAGICK). The exciting story line never slows down especially when the quest begins. However, the key to a Mary Taffs’ tale is the cast and this one contains terrific protagonists struggling with their previous failures and a delightful secondary group including their superiors and their antagonists; all who make for a fine rounded tale that fantasy and romance readers will cherish.
