Embody by Jamie Magee

Title: Embody
Series: Insight #2
Author: Jamie Magee
Independently Published: July 2011

Not many Scorpio’s are known for their patience, and Willow Haywood is no different. Her only desire is to love Landen Chambers and redeem the lost souls of Esterious, but the path to that desire is long, dark and dangerous... 

Before Willow’s life had a chance to balance the sudden revelations and grief she had to endure to get to Chara a disturbing discovery is made. A photo, one that shows Willow blissfully embracing the flawless image of Drake Blakeshire; giving her not only proof that she had lived before, but that she had loved him. 

Running away from the memory of Drake’s hypnotizing touch, and the prophecy set before her seemed like the logical thing to do. That is, until a dark dream reignites her passion to save the hopeless dimension of Esterious. Willow struggles to find patience – to learn everything she needs to know before she faces Drake again, but her eagerness is dangerous and one step in the wrong direction takes everything and everyone away from her – the only way to survive this trial is for Willow to remember who she is and what she really wants out of this life. The question is….can she do that?

If you have been by my blog in the last couple of weeks, then you know that I have fallen in love with the Insight Series. Embody is the perfect mixture of action, philosophy, and undying love. Landen and Willow will once again face Drake as Mercury orbits into place. This is the second of many trials they will face in order to restore the color to Esterious.  As the myth goes, only the rightful Guardian with Willow at his side can prevail over the world. Drake believes he is the Guardian and will do anything to have her at his side. Landen already has Willow's love, but has no desire to rule the world.

Willow and Landen want to protect the ones they love, but the closer time gets to their confrontation with Drake, the more they realize they must train their family and friends to assist and protect them. The two of them have a great deal to learn, as well. Libby and Preston are invaluable tutors and guides, teaching them to meditate and to see and use the energy around them. Landen has been warned that he could push Willow into Drake's arms by trying to stop her from doing something she truly wants to do. He definitely has that selective hearing thing going on that most me do; because, he did exactly what he was warned against. Now Willow is stuck in Esterious with Drake vying for her love. Can he get her back before it is too late? Let's hope so.

I enjoyed this book immensely. You begin to see things through Drake's eyes. He's not completely bad. Perhaps he can be saved from the darkness. This remains to be seen.
