The return of sculptor Emma Grant to her Georgia home town sparks the return of the visions she tries to deny and rekindles a centuries-old feud between shape shifters Venn Hearst, guardian of the Divine Tree (The Tree Of Knowledge) and his nemesis. Emma is determined to place and dedicate the statue honoring her beloved grandmother despite Venn’s opposition; despite the fact she is in love with Venn, despite his sacred duty not to permit it. Will she overcome a test of evil or shatter Venn's world?

4 stars.

Emma returns to Georgia to place a statue in the town park. When she arrives she begins to feel more than she expected both for the ancient tree in the park and the man she meets in town. Soon tragedy strikes and Emma is forced to make a choice between saving a loved ones soul or the man she loves.
I really enjoyed this book. Venn and Seth brought a sense of history and friendship into the story. Seth and Io some sibling rivalry. Clair is a spunky old lady who doesn't pull any punches. It was nice that Emma and Venn were able to reconnect and Emma was able to over come her feelings of being stuck or compared to the past. Her relationship with her father and with Custos were nicely written and added a lot to this story. An overall very well written story.

Larissa Emerald writes paranormal, futuristic and contemporary romances. She is a Romance Writers of America 2013 Golden Heart Finalist for her romantic suspense, RAMPANT PERFECTION which will be available in the fall of 2015.

A combination of her love of reading and her vivid imagination―plus a strong desire to rewrite the endings of movies that just didn’t end right―lead Larissa into the world of writing.

Larissa has lived in Florida for her entire life. In her spare time, she enjoys teaching baton twirling and dance, traveling with her husband of 41 years, baking and cooking―usually altering the recipe―and playing dress up with the brightest lights in her life, her four grandchildren.
