Influenced is another wonderful story from Patricia Josephine (writing with her YA author name). The words lower down on the cover ask ‘Can Dark Co-exist With Light?’
by Patricia Josephine
Influencers are the voices that whisper in our ears. Tiny Angels and Devils sitting on our shoulders and guiding our choices. They are sworn to thwart the other. It is their duty.
Or so they thought…
Nothing is as it seems and questions are piling up. Do Kale and Ariel have the strength to face the truth? Will Antonia and Landon be forced to choose a side? Can Soleil break through to Kemuel? Three tales, three choices: Light. Dark. Or the shades of gray between.
Which one will win?
Influenced is a collection of sweet fantasy romance short stories that will put a warm feeling in your heart. [goodreads]
Three quick reads, but a great deal to mull over, as Patricia Josephine creates a system of Influencers who may or may not operate according to the laws (or guidelines) laid down by their superiors.
These tales are very cleverly written, bringing delight to the reader, yet leaving some questions unanswered. Points to ponder, in fact. There are links between the characters of different stories, so the collection holds together well. And it may be fantasy, but the situations are very real world. I gave it five stars.
