I am very excited to present the first official image of Willa, created by Vashta Narada, an amazingly gifted artist! In the months to come, Vashta and I will work together to create additional images of the characters in the "Shards" series of books. My deep appreciation and thanks to Vashta for truly capturing Willa's spirit.
In addition to the sci-fi novels that tell Willa's exciting story in a fictional format, recordings of channeled sessions by Willa are available at www.bashar.org
I was glued to the book from day one as the story swept me through the whole spectrum of emotions. Exceptionally visual storyline in which the author did an incredible job of painting a mental picture. This book will keep you on your toes from cover to cover! Really looking forward to book two!

I love the rich variety of characters and have always had an appreciation for the Elementals. Even the spaceships are cool. I am really looking forward to book 2.

The theme reminds me of the Chronicles of Amber which I loved. This book takes it even further with its clear yet imagination-provoking writing. I hope we get the next volume soon!

I absolutely LOVED this story! It's a truly wonderful blend of fantasy and science fiction that transported me to a magical, futuristic version of Ireland, one I did not wish to leave but alas, the book came to an end, leaving me little choice but to turn back to page one and begin reading again. Featuring a fast-moving plot, one that weaves together a completely mad (if not inspired) combination of human-hybrid aliens, nature-spirits, dastardly outer-space villains and a potion-brewing Sasquatch, the story's heart and soul is ultimately centered upon the journey of its main character, 13 year old, Willa Hillicrissing, a spirited girl who chooses to undergo an initiation into a much larger understanding of the nature of Reality, one that carries with it great challenges, profound lessons and marvelous happenings. Darryl Anka's woven quite a wondrous yarn...so stoke a fire, make a nice hot cup of tea, kick back in a comfy chair, open to page one and teleport yourself into a wondrous, alternate reality.
