Holding the very key to the mysteries of her past, Jasmine faces the darkness of a Secret Order who has only one goal in mind...
Control Time and Space to bring about a Judgment Day that would sweep through their world and splinter the realities of every dimension it touched. On a sultry evening in an abandoned New Orleans courtyard, Jasmine finds herself helping a handsome stranger who awakens a burning passion inside her soul. Driven by the urgent need to be near this mysterious man, she reaches out in the middle of chaos...only to discover she crossed through a doorway into a world that seems hauntingly familiar; a new world filled with magic, prophecy and no small amount of danger.
Hayden Amarynn is of Noble blood; In fact, he is the last Prince of a failing kingdom charged with one duty to his realm...Retrieve the lost prohecies of his people and end the War that nearly destroyed his existence. All of that seemed easy compared to the struggle he faced on the day he stumbled through another reality and literally into the arms of Jasmine Daye, the most beautiful woman he had ever encountered in his lifetime. Hayden knew he could not afford to deviate from his sacred quest, but he also knew that he had to keep this beauty by his side at any cost or lose his heart even as he saved his people.
She glanced up into his face, her green eyes full of desire. The
look he gave her was ageless and she realized she had never felt so
full of grace as she did when she saw herself reflected in his eyes.
Kimberly Adkins has done it again!
"Kimberly Adkins has done it again! Her second book, DARKENBANE: THE FOUNTAIN, is just as enchanting...as her debut, THE MEDALLION OF SOLAUS. Her writing is smooth and overwhelmingly beautiful as she places the beginning of the story in the French Quarter of New Orleans...a masterful tale of romance, fantasy and time travel; they mingle well together and make you believe the true power of love is just beyond a grasp, or in this story, beyond a magical fountain."
Angela Steed, Author of 1080 KISS
Kasey's View 5 Stars...A recommended read...
The story begins in our present day New Orleans,after Hurricane Katrina. Wow! When you pick up this book and open to the first page, you are taken away! It's a "can't put down" read. Kimberly immediately takes you through magic portals to other worlds or dimensions, you decide...
She introduces her characters in such away, you feel as if you know them well. When Hayden meets Jasmine, you can feel the heat that emanates between them come off the pages. Hayden is every woman's secret desire for a "Prince Charming".
Truly, this is a fast and fun read as Kimberly leads you through the mazes of time with Jasmine's and Hayden's adventures intertwining until they meet again...and again....and again....so the story goes....
I would definitely rate this a great big 5, one of those reads that you just can't bring yourself to put down.

"DARKENBANE: THE FOUNTAIN is sure to keep readers enthralled from page one to the final page. For those who love the paranormal, historical, classical New Orleans lore, faery tales, and legends, DARKENBANE: THE FOUNTAIN is a “don’t miss” novel.
Kimberly Adkins’ characters are rich and full, empathetic and realistic, even in the midst of fantasy scenery. A wonderful prose style and the taut plot lines entwining the fantasy reality and contemporary New Orleans with Jasmine’s earlier life in California
round out a truly exciting story."
