The Tie Is a Lie
Have you ever wondered who those people are in your dreams that you do not know? "A young woman tele-transports to a supernatural dimension that she had been going to in her dreams. When she meets an ancient warrior vampire she acquires supernatural powers and joins Awen a secret society fighting against dominating forces from her previous life; who want to destroy him and their world." THE TIE IS A LIE begins with the present day then flashes back and forth between the 1970s and the present. It takes place in Dreamtime and New Order Time, (N.O.T.), which are multi-dimensional worlds that exist simultaneously and are used interchangeably by those who can travel between the two that co-exist in various places around the globe. An order was given in N.O.T. to destroy the environment and wild life motivated by a need for power to globalize and dictate the natural world including humans and Immortals with special abilities. They are challenged by Awen, a secret society in Dreamtime, designed to eliminate powerful forces in N.O.T. and prevent them from colonizing Dreamtime. Vampires and shape-shifters, with extra special skills live with other humans and Immortals in both worlds. Kino is an ancient Italian Vampire with advanced telekinetic powers and is a descendant from bloodlines of medicine men and Druid magic. He is honored yet feels cursed by his legacy to protect Dreamtime from the powerful forces that had taken parts of Dreamtime in the past and killed his mother and father. Executed with his cunning, methodical and merciless tactics he reclaimed what was taken from Dreamtime before. Meghan is his heart's desire but he must let go of a promise he made in order to love her completely. Meghan has been traveling to Dreamtime in her dreams where her latent powers ignited and have since been refined; she can literally write or draw her self to anywhere and eventually adds shape-shifting to her repertoire and becomes a spy and huntress of wildlife poachers. A deluge into Kino's world threatens its existence and the very thing that keeps his power strong which is Meghan. He was forewarned that if love broke his heart, it would weaken his powers; although faith and free will could set him free and release a promise he can no longer keep. Will the powerful individuals within Awen along with Kino and Meghan's power together be enough to sustain their future? The Tie Is A Lie parallels present day global and cultural issues relevant to multiple ethnic/tribal groups and how they are impacted by them. Inclusive to these changes is the loss of wildlife and their habitat and how they are intrinsically entwined with them. This initiates awareness and correlates with humanity's connection to the natural world and their instinctual/ intuitive nature that bridges the difference of ethnicity to reveal no separation between them. They all have the same essential needs as humans in a technological world that is dissolving these base imperative qualities that are inherent in us all.
