But the Mirror has proved more than a portal to the past. Her journeys have energized a circle of reincarnating souls--lovers, friends and foes--destined to meet again and again over millennia.Parallel stories set in the past and present unfold in the stand-alone third book, The Black Scroll. The evolution of modern Isis continues. With each trip to the past, shes returned more emboldened and is about to reach levels of power beyond her wildest imaginings. With forays through the mirror almost a routine, she refuses to heed Barbs pleas and readily answers the call when her ancient self reaches out in a dream.If ancient Isis of The Red Mirror was every mans dream and Athena of The Emerald Tablet every womans dream, the tale of Elektra and The Black Scroll is nightmare and triumph. Worship me! she dares a vicious world three centuries later in Roman Libya and Egypt. Shes a redhead now and a Roman murderess sold into slavery. This is the story of her rise from sex slave to goddess of her own pleasure cult. Isis was ruled by her passion, Athena sensual but reasoned. Elektra knows what every man--and woman--desires and uses her sexuality to claw her way to the top.Set against a background of Egypts sumptuous and lascivious pleasure resort of Canopus, lovers from her past and future--Red Viper the rebel Christian, Antinous the consort of Emperor Hadrian, Hektor the Greek aristocrat, the ever-powerful General--play shifting roles in changing alliances. The web of incarnating souls--allies and enemies--becomes more entangled as betrayal and desperation drive Elektra to summon the secret powers of black magic to enthrall, bully and bewitch. If she changed Isis and Athena in the past and thus altered events, could she not also change the course of history by saving a fabled lover from tragedy?Back in the present, the struggle for possession of the Emerald Tablet intensifies. A chance and passionate encounter with a loyal slave from the past develops into a gathering in London of the seven septagrams of the ancient Order of Protectors. For the first time, modern Isis returns to the scene of a life lived twenty centuries earlier. Her partnership with the General takes on a new dimension, and she is forced to choose among her men.As the mirror reflects past onto present and back, modern Isis feeds off Elektras power while Elektras heart softens because of her. The future changes the past as the past changes the present. And the present morphs at cosmic speed.Red Mirror Series - One woman, four men, many lifetimes. One life is not enough.
