Review of Carry On The Flame: Destiny's Call by Jodine Turner

 Humanity is in the midst of the greatest crisis in their evolution. Sharay is the one chosen to show the way forward and help humankind move through the fear and dark times of today's world. Born into a lineage of priestesses in modern day Glastonbury, England, Sharay's way is blocked by her jealous Aunt Phoebe, who uses black magic against her to steal her fortune and magical power. When Phoebe commits Sharay to a psychiatric ward and accuses her of murder, Sharay struggles with the temptation to fight Phoebe's vengeance with her own. Through the ancient Celtic ceremony of Beltaine, Sharay experiences profound sacred union with the Welshman Guethyn, who shows her how to open her heart. But Sharay must learn to transform her hatred for her aunt in order to claim the mystery held deep within her cells that will allow her to fulfill her destiny and prove that the ultimate magic is the power of love.

                                            About Carry On The Flame: Destiny's Call
Sharay is prophesied as the chosen one in her modern age to set humans into a new age of prosperity. Her mom nurtured her abilities for the time she'd be called for bringing this in motion but Sharay's mom soon dies in what at first seems like an accident but proves to be more than that. The person after Sharay maybe someone she should trust. Liked the story because you become immersed in the deeply lulling imagery and magic power play involved between Sharay and the unknown adversary against her. Was a medium-good read but felt could've  been better. Contains strong hints of a religious center around an epic fantasy backdrop.
