Is Wanting Enough? Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Is Wanting Enough?

Synopsis: To Peregrine, an immortal and omnipotent being called a Luminaria, the Cape Cod troika was a triangle of three earth-chakras anchored at its vertices by the Nihon crystal pyramid in downtown Boston, the ancient tree of life, Yggdrasil, on Cedar Neck, and the Race Point Lighthouse situated at the very tip of the Cape. However, for Eryn Shaughnessy, her personal troikra was the tide of emotions simultaneously pulling her in two directions.

First, there was Danny, whose only mistake was loving Eryn, and then there was Peregrine, whom Eryn had chanced to meet for a night of passion long ago at the Race Point Light. It was during that night that he lit a Luminaria deep within her soul. Now, years later, Peregrine is back in her life, ostensibly working for Nihon. Only Nihon's owner, the enigmatic Mr. Quon knows Peregrine's real reason for being in Boston.
The eternal troikra crosses boundaries of space-time. From one holographic reality to another, from an aerial duel over 1944 France to 50th century Mars, from Naula through the ecliptic, Peregrine has loved Eryn. She has become his obsession. Because of her, Peregrine's mission might fail.
