Many people who visit North Carolinas coast have ambitions no grander than lying on the sand, eating seafood, and shopping the outlet malls. On the other hand, there are those who would prefer a nighttime “turtle walk” on Bald Head Island, where they might see a giant loggerhead emerge from the sea and lumber across the sand to lay her eggs. And…
Amrita, the beautiful helping witch is entrusted with an important mission: she must find the twins, who were separated and went missing thirty years earlier when they were babies. They have to break the ever-growing power of the Prince of Darkness with the help of a mysterious and ancient relic. First, in order to achieve their aim, together with Amrita, they have to contend with the Minions of Darkness: the desperate demons, harmful witches and vampires. Furthermore, they also have to decode the mysterious message of the spirit world.
If it had not been for Kristof, a knowledgeable shaman, their mission would be a complete failure. Above all, Amrita has to fight against enemy creatures and constantly contend with her contradictory, unfulfilled love for Morgan, the thousands of years old charismatic vampire. And when she meets an attractive, mortal man, at first, she is unable to decide whether a new emotion can override the age-old, platonic bond.
The small team is racing against time, searching for the answers to several questions: what is the correlation between the picturesque Pilis Mountains, nestled in the middle of Europe, and the constellation Orion? What happened to the people of the sunken empires Mu and Atais, lost in the Pacific Ocean thousands of years ago? What is the message of the ancient stone tablets of Burma? Where is the Desert of Sonorous, and what secret does it hide? Who are the 'forbidden bloods'?
While the protagonists have countless adventures by following the clues and traveling half way around the world - including the east coast of the United States, Earl Dracula's former home, the depth of the snowy, rugged mountains of Transylvania, and the remote exotic places of Burma and China - you will discover the answers.
"The Golden Panthers" is a cross-genre: an adventure novel interwoven with elements of fantasy, paranormal, spirituality and romance.
"I must say that the book exceeded all my expectations, and I liked it very much. I think the twin stories are fundamentally attractive, and if we add a wangling red witch, some demons, vampires and wraiths, and we make the heroes travel around the globe in the interest of a good cause, then certainly a good adventure story emerges. I liked the fairytale-like transitions, the timeline shifts, and the incoming supernatural things without a hitch. I consider this book to be basically an adventure novel, despite the elements of fantasy and imaginary beings.
This is a fast-paced novel; there is no rest here, something always happens, and the change of the locations just twists the plot further. I loved the book; it is absolutely what it is: a light adventure story, which provides active recreation.
The author writes very well; she has superb ideas and good storytelling skills, and something, which is very important, great background knowledge. She researches what she would like to write about. I can hardly wait for more of her books to come." /Pupilla Reads Book Blog/
"I really liked that the chapters - named after the Tarot cards - take place in different times, revealing the past and the present almost in parallel, and that the threads nicely converge at the end. The great charm of the novel - also for those who like other genres - can be a huge amount of exciting information, which you can get hold of while reading the events. I can honestly admit that otherwise I obviously wouldn't have learned these interesting things." /Book Heaven Blog/
