Forged by Fate

The whole Pantheon plays a role...

Next month on Convergence, I have the great pleasure of introducing a first time author and her debut book. Forged By Fate, by Amalia Dillin, is the story of Eve. But it's not your traditional biblical account. In Forged By Fate, Adam and Eve remember their past lives as they reincarnate. And there's quite a powerful bit of tension between them. Because,

After Adam fell, God made Eve to protect the world. — Adam has pursued Eve since the dawn of creation, intent on using her power to create a new world and make himself its God. Throughout history, Eve has thwarted him, determined to protect the world and all of creation. Unknown to her, the Norse god Thor has been sent by the Council of Gods to keep her from Adam’s influence, and more, to protect the interests of the gods themselves. But this time, Adam is after something more than just Eve’s power — he desires her too, body and soul, even if it means the destruction of the world. Eve cannot allow it, but as one generation melds into the next, she begins to wonder if Adam might be a man she could love.

When you read this tale, you find a very powerful exploration of self-discovery, growth, and purpose. It's elegantly placed into a context in which all the deities have a role. And it's a great story, filled with powerful characters, both human and divine, that will stay with you.

Amalia Dillin is the youngest daughter of the eldest sister of the big Italian family that I am honored and humbled to be a part of. Yes, she's my niece, and my Goddaughter. And she's an amazing young woman with talent and diligence. But that's not why she's going to be on my show. It's because she has an important and powerful story to share, that carries truth and beauty, and lessons for all of us.

Forged By Fate is being released on March 5th from World Weaver Press. It will be available in paperback and as an ebook. Read the book. Then join us for Convergence on March 17th at 10:30 am Pacific time.
