Book One in the Ponticar Series

On one level, The Scent of Magic reads as a fast-paced and exciting fantasy novel. But on a deeper level the story is about spiritual truths. Hidden within the adventures of Rolf, Elena, and Dark is a more mystical message about the importance of visualization and personal empowerment in our lives. The characters both demonstrate and experience the spiritual journey that we all travel, and in the end they find that every challenge is really an opportunity for growth.
Read The Scent of Magic once for the fun of the fantasy adventure, then read it again to uncover the messages of spiritual growth and enlightenment concealed within.

Dark noticed Rolf's preoccupation and thought he knew the reason for it. After watching Rolf cast a backward glance at one of the undistinguished villages they had taken lunch in, he commented, "It's too late for regrets, Rolf."
Startled out of his reverie, Rolf sputtered, "What? What do you mean, too late?"
"A man must choose his path and yours will take you away forever from the place where you grew up." Dark was sympathetic. Every practitioner he knew came to the realization sooner or later that not only were they fated to be different from most other men, they would also live a life of wandering in pursuit of something that none could even give description to. There was a hunger that constantly pulled them onward. He had wondered when it would hit Rolf, and knowing the ability of his young companion, surmised that it would be soon.
"I did not grow up anywhere near here," Rolf protested, embarrassed that his thoughts had been so easily read.
"It's natural," Dark said, going on as if Rolf had not spoken. "It was part of the price you paid the day you decided to pursue the path of a magician. Magic has its own rules. We have no option but to follow them."
