They found each other in their dreams.

Autumn Bradley used the magic in her hands to save Ursula Columbine from the darkness that hunts for her. They have only met in dreams of a turbulent past, and the Ursula in Autumn's arms doesn't recognize her. Autumn knows it is up to her to hide the defenseless Ursula. Darkness searches for them. Light hunts for them as well. Their nightmares are only beginning.

Her heart knows only a curse.

Darkness has spilled into Kelly Dove's life. She will use all her strength, no matter the cost, for what her dreams promise: Ursula hers again. Her dreams demand secrets she scarcely knows she possesses, but she will give them up and all she can learn -- past and future -- for love and vengeance.

The battle lines are drawn amongst themselves.

Taylor St. Claire risked faith and spirit to save Ursula from the ravages of the centuries-old darkness that wants the last secrets to power. She failed. No longer cleric, no longer priestess, Taylor's bitterness threatens to consume her completely. From the ancient music that haunts them all comes a clue in the search for Ursula, and Kelly seems only too eager to help. But the face of Ursula's captor is not the woman Taylor expects.

In their dreams, no one is who they seem.

Notes and Reviews

"The prolific Karin Kallmaker is blessed with a second bestselling persona. As 'Laura Adams,' she's the author of magic-infused, time-shifting, other-worldly fables, the mesmerizing fifth of which is Seeds of Fire. As in her previous fantasy work, passionate women are drawing on magic powers and ancient ways to grapple with dark forces and unspeakable evils - staples of the genre. But Kallmaker transcends cliche with vivid characterization, logical plotting, and plenty of deep research into ancient Christian religious legends. And in its heart, this second volume of the Tunnel of Light trilogy is as lush a love story as anything penned under the Kallmaker label. ...The sequel to Sleight of Hand is an atmospheric mix of mythical past lives and daunting present-day dangers..."

-- Richard LaBonte, Book Marks


"In this book, a middle story, Kallmaker has extended her scope and her technique to a new level. A skilled craftswoman and bard has evolved into an artist. She is doing more in this book than telling a story about friends, power and magic; she is holding up a mirror and reflecting back to us ourselves...
This is a gem of a read, a gift to all voracious readers from a splendidly gifted imagination."

-- Jean Stewart, author of the Isis series
