Enchanters Pass Magical Essence to Their Partners

Kisses are Magical Hanky-Panky

It's Kiss an Enchanter Day

It’s Kiss an Enchanter Day

February 14th is the official “Kiss an Enchanter Day” here at Lita’s castle. Before we get all distracted with the pleasurable mechanics, let’s talk about the psychology of smooches in Lita’s fantasy world of Sye.

Sye’s magical essence kisses are a cornerstone in Wrath, Tredan’s Bane, and the forthcoming Ghost Orchid. These stories look at the spell casting and political shenanigans of a world where magical power is a commodity.

Intimacy Mind Magic

Consider the kiss, so sweet and full of bliss. On the practical level, kisses fuel the magical hanky-panky for making little wizards.

Kisses Fortify Trust and Passion With a Partner

But on the mind magic (psychology) level, kisses fortify trust and passion with a partner. A kiss mixes touch, smell, and taste to celebrate affection.

A kiss brings another person into our vulnerable personal space and shows we risk catching an infection and losing our heart. The best kisses reassure and inflame us with their magic.

How to Make Magic

Some of Sye’s plants have low levels of essence that animals consume to get their dose of magic. Human magicians who are predisposed to distillation spells ingest the essence-rich flora and generate concentrated magical essence in their bodies. These magic-saturated attractive people are Enchanters, not only in name, but also in their very nature.

Enchanters distribute their essence using kisses and other less wanton methods. Sye’s people need a dose every day. Think of essence as a magical salt, but much more fun to dispense than with a salt shaker.

Join the Ranks

Sye’s world can be harsh with the Enchanters’ seductive ways, and establishing trusted essence partners is especially important to these affectionate mages. Male Enchanters recruit non-magician confidantes to draw off their extra essence using the Enchanter Kiss spell. In addition to the usual attraction of a willing recipient, the spell endears the receiver by flooding them with untainted magical power.

This deluge releases feel-good magical substances (endorphins). The essence onslaught in an Enchanter Kiss spell also repairs the receiver’s physical, thaumaturgic, and emotional wear-and-tear.

Technology Paranoia Make for a Delicious Fantasy World

Review: Stones (Data)

Enter a Fantasy World Where Stones Have Mystical Power

Enter a Fantasy World Where Stones Have Mystical Power

Magical mysticism and paranoia about the near-future Internet. What a delicious fantasy world!

Today Lita shares a recent excellent read about a young man who finds a magic stone and battles an ego-centric corporate mage who will destroy Matt if he doesn’t help create a loathsome future for humanity.

Stones (Data) by Jacob Whaler is an epic fantasy about Matt Newmark and his adventures after finding a magic stone on a skiing trip. Matt is in so many ways a typical twenty-something guy with a love of skiing, an all-encompassing adoration for his girlfriend Jessica, and a sometimes strained relationship with his dad. Ever since Matt’s mother died in a horrible accident, his father Kent had both of them live vigilant lives.

What If Certain Stones Could Shape the Future of Mankind?

What If Certain Stones Could Shape the Future of Mankind?

Father and son daily outfox their world’s intrusive technology that would expose them to the corporate thugs that also want Kent and his son dead.

Matt’s newfound stone is no simple souvenir of a spectacular wipeout on the ski slopes. It is one of a handful of keys that powerful people have used over the centuries to shape the future of civilization. Another stone holder, Mikal Ryzaard, has transformed from a bookish professor to the head of the most powerful technology and financial corporation on Earth. Ryzaard is desperate to merge the power of the stones, and this mega-egoist magician will stop at nothing to get Matt’s cooperation.

Stones (Data) is a delight of a story about a likable young man thrust into the dual shadowy worlds of counter-technology and mysticism. After Matt leaves Colorado for a summer internship in Japan, Whaler’s excellent plot swings between Matt and Kent as they battle Ryzaard’s relentless killer of a corporation. Tension crackles between the magician newbie Matt and the corrupt Ryzaard, leading to a satisfying conclusion that balances power and matters of the heart.

Shy Jack Frost, Winter's Fantasy Boy

Fantasy Boy of Winter: Jack Frost

Jack on His Way to Another Window Painting Gig

Burr, it’s wintertime outside of Lita’s castle here in the northern realms. Someone painted icy filigree on the windows. Let’s bundle up, go outside, and meet the artist. 

Say hello to handsome Jack Frost, winter’s fantasy boy. This magician embodies lacy window paintings, trees draped with sparkling snow, and crystalline sculptures made of ice. He tosses about sheets of sleet as if they were billowing linens on a clothesline.

Jack is an affectionate one. He nips noses and toes with tingling kisses, and leaves behind his enthralling magic.

Snow sports enthusiasts adore this mischievous ne’er-do-well’s wintry efforts. Mister Frost delights in all chilly artwork, whether he fills mountain valleys with champagne powder for skiers or freezes a lowland lake until it is a perfect dance floor for an ice skater’s blades.

He is an artist and sculptor, too. His icy paintings on windowpanes have many admirers. Jack also molds frigid streams into whimsy ice figurines. He does his work when your back is turned or during the long and dark winter nights. Just don’t try stealing a kiss back from handsome Jack by putting your lips on a frozen well handle. Ouch. Lita warned you. Hear that cad giggle at your foolishness in trying to catch him unawares?

Enough of this winter enchanter’s tricks for now. His sly kisses have flushed Lita’s cheeks and turned her toes into numb nubbins. The snow crunches with every step and the darkening sky dances with the eerie northern lights. Lita puts her hip to the frozen door to shut wintertime outside.

Back inside now to the cozy fireplace and purring cat. Shall we have a cup of cocoa? A warm computer awaits to help thaw Lita’s fingers so she can type the next chapter of Glitter Ponies.

Oh, look over there. Jack painted more icy lace on the window while we were outside. What a sly guy.

“Tredan’s Bane by Lita Burke is a fantasy story filled with suspense, intrigue, and magic.

The constant attacks from the Church force the Enchanters to escape. Tredan, Lanith’s husband, has also vanished. Both her shop and home have been burnt. She seeks the Enchanter Nyle’s help to search for Tredan.

They find Tredan’s journal where he has written down spells that will ruin the Enchanter’s magic. At the same time, an Enforcer comes in time to take Tredan’s journal. Lanith should keep the journal away from the Church magician so that the Enchanters are not destroyed. Lanith is also overpowered by Nyle’s charm and she has to resist him.

Surround Yourself with the Deep and Sensual Magical World of the Enchanters in Tredan’s Bane

The story is very intriguing and, at the same time, exciting. The scenes are evocative and sensual. The Church is the dominating factor in this tale which has many ingredients. The author has woven a story of adventure, magic, romance, passion, intrigue, suspense, murder, and religion with expertise.

The book is well written and it is action packed and fast paced. The author has done well in defining each character. The Enchanter Nyle’s character is ‘enchanting’ and mysterious. Another exciting part of the story is provided by Lanith’s pet dragonette who is also part of the main plot.

The tension between the Church and the Enchanters is palpable throughout the book. That gives tension and a unique angle to the story line.”

Lita Burke’s short story is a beautifully crafted and exciting magical fantasy.

Wrath begins an epic fantasy about retired Enchanter Tredan and his wife Lanith, who are magical curio merchants in the seaside town of Isor. They have lived peaceful lives for many years, but a spell that transcends their marriage vows keeps Tredan’s lips sealed about his secret journal. Lanith knows nothing about this devastating book that will enslave the source of magic in their world called Sye.

One morning while Lanith is out on an errand, a compulsion charm hidden in a shipping box brings Tredan’s disgraceful past to his door. It warns that an Enforcer is on his way to Tredan. This superior magician wants the journal, and he will stop at nothing to acquire it.
