Everyone had heard of the Magus of Danthamore, a powerful, dangerous, and ruthless man. Nelina, who was sold on the slaver's block by her unscrupulous uncle, now finds herself as the newest slave of the Magus. Finding that he is more than what he appears to be, Nelina follows her heart as the irresistible handsome Magus leads her into a world she had never dreamed existed.

Ru'ark who had become known as the Magus used the power he wielded with little regard for the people beyond his homeland of Aghadine and the waste.

He was expected to use her, betray her, and certainly not to love her.

Stopping on the razor’s edge of your Soul Gap™ can happen in an instant, but building a bridge to cross it takes effort and help. Best Selling Author, Janelle Alex, Ph.D. brings you practical spirituality in Soul Gap: Rediscover the colors of your soul and fulfill your life’s mission, so you can stop endlessly searching for that “something missing” in your life.

Soul Gap™ = your soul’s mission - your active participation

It’s true, you made it through another day. Great! But, now you’re tossing and turning because the sense that you’re just running in place and running out of time is keeping a peaceful night’s sleep at bay.  

Being bold and ready to set the world on fire likely came easily to you when you were young and setting out on your adventure as an adult. Then, the expectations of others got in your way. You did what you believed you were supposed to do and set your biggest dreams on a shelf.  

Day-in and day-out you work your life away - all while your soul keeps calling to you. You know there’s got to be more to life. The deep desire to have a greater impact in the world - to make a real difference beyond your family, your friends and your home - has been nudging your heart.  

It’s no longer just a gentle nudge or a silent call. It’s a full-blown push. You feel the urgency to make a real change - not only in your life, but in the lives of others. It’s a blaring call from your soul coming through so loudly you can no longer ignore it. You’re ready to answer, but you don’t know where to begin.

Success hasn’t been an issue for you. You’ve attained it. Being good - or even great - at what you do has never been a problem. This can lead to the question, “Shouldn’t you be happy? What more do you want?!”  

But, guess what? Living someone else’s dreams is not what you came here to do. Playing small and playing by someone else’s rules is not what lights you up. You’ve hidden yourself away and muted the colors of your soul.  

This is what led you to unknowingly creating a Soul Gap™. Yet, all is not lost. Rediscovering the colors of your soul and fulfilling your life’s mission is at your fingertips. 

This book offers you deep insight into you, your spiritual connection and your Soul Gap™. Through bits of her personal story and unique “active participation” exercises at the end of each chapter, Janelle helps you recognize your Soul Gap™, rediscover your Secret Animal Powers™, and reveal steps to build and maintain a bridge across your Soul Gap™.
