Tarnished Beginnings, Soul Dance Book One

Tarnished Beginnings, the prequel to the Soul Dance books is just .99 for a limited time!

Tairin’s wolf is more than just a dream creature. She hates it, but it’s also her only friend.

1700s Egypt is a haven for magic-wielders of all kinds. Vampires hold court, staying one step ahead of the priests and priestesses who want them dead. Gypsy caravans roam the Nile from north to south and back again, plying their wares, telling fortunes, casting Tarot cards, and stealing from the gadjos.

Tairin Jabari was born in a caravan and has always believed she’s Romani. Why wouldn’t she? Her mother and father never suggested otherwise. The Rom have harsh rules. When Tairin’s first shift catches her unaware at thirteen, her father disappears, and the elders move with deadly speed to punish her mother for mating outside the blood.

Hurt, lost, confused, and fearing for her own life, Tairin runs away, leaving her mother’s smoking funeral pyre behind. If she could only find her father, he’d welcome her. He’s always loved her, hasn’t he? Only problem is he’s in a shifter settlement. With her mixed blood, they won’t welcome her any more warmly than the Romani. It doesn’t take long before Tairin discovers how desperately unprepared she is for life outside her protected caravan. With her survival on the line every single day, she and her wolf have some hard choices to make.

  1. Tarnished Beginnings is the prequel to the Tarnished book series. This book introduces us to Tairin the Romani shifter who we follow throughout the series. This book gives valuable background information for a basis for the seies.

  2. This reads like a fascinating book! Set somewhere around the time of our fight for Independence in a land steeped in magic, with gypsies, vampires, priests and a shifter community as well! I really would like to read ad review all of these books I could get my hands on! I was fascinated by the Egyptian culture and history when I was in grade school and read everything I could find in the library about Egypt, it’s history and gods. It is still fascinating!

    • Thank you so much, Carolynn!

  3. I would like to read and review this book
