Diana dreams of a female apprentice kidnapped from the Ocean Magick Balance Stronghold. She and Win journey there only to learn that the stronghold's guardian has lost his magical powers. Win serves as the temporary guardian, but because Diana has not dedicated herself to the Goddess, she cannot serve as his Priestess. As Diana further envisions an abused victim and meets family members for the first time, she begins to better understand her unhappy childhood. Meanwhile her skills expand way beyond the norm, but will she dedicate herself to the Goddess like her lifemate has or remain bitter and angry, or is there some other destiny awaiting her?

MORE THAN MAGICK returns readers to the Balance (see MAGICK) with is an engaging romantic fantasy filled with action and suspense, but owned by Diana. As she matures (in a coming of age sort of way), the lead character struggles with her beliefs vs. that of her lifemate. This enables the audience to better comprehend what motivates the Adept and indirectly Win, as the world of the Balance becomes a genuine feeling locale, filled with Magick and more. This didactic romantic fantasy leaves readers with a deep desire to see more winning adventures from that adept mage Mary Taffs.
