eBook Description: When well-known California artist, Lang Garret, takes a trip to Phoenix, he has more than his gallery appearance in mind. His plans include a little surprise for his fianc�e', Amanda, who is traveling with him. Unfortunately, a twist of fate, a chance meeting, and a chain of unforeseen obstacles throw all of Lang's intentions out the window. Lang and Amanda accept an invitation to join a group visit to one of Arizona's energy vortexes that mysteriously contains a newly formed crop circle. It seems innocent enough, but what begins as a curious adventure for a group of six turns an expected pleasure into a predicament of terror. The unfathomable energy of the circle has a different repercussion for each individual who enters it. It seems impossible that the gyre could produce a horror, the power to kill, a marvel, the power to heal, and a blessing all at once, but the supernatural occurrences caused by the circle continue to alter their lives long after leaving Arizona. Now Lang and Amanda writhe under the struggle to keep their relationship intact and prevent the energy to annihilate their love.

"It was the darnedest thing, I tell you." Fred scraped his chair back from the oak table and walked over to the window. "I been camping and hiking hundreds of times and I ain't never seen nothin' like that." He bent in front of the window to catch the warm breeze fluttering the tan and yellow cotton curtains. He turned to give Andy a perplexed look.
Andy went to the rustic built-in buffet to pour himself a cup of hot coffee.
"Okay, Fred, you saw lights."
"Brighter than any lights I ever saw before." He stepped back to resume his seat at the table. "They had to have flashed for a good stretch of time."
"You want a cup?"
"Yeah." Fred laughed. "I sure ain't gonna kick the caffeine habit today. I'm free of Patsy's nagging for at least a week while she's off visiting her mother. Quit caffeine, quit carbs, watch your cholesterol! Geez, she has me on so damn much fiber I think I might have driftwood floating in my colon."
Andy chuckled. "What else did you see?" He set the mugs on the table.
"Well, like I said, there was the bright lights, and I felt a heat-like energy running through me." He brushed his hands down the front of his shirt to demonstrate. "I remember looking at my watch and the second hand was stopped, so I started to count. One miss-sippy, two miss-sippy... I got all the way to forty-seven miss-sippy before they took off as quiet as a whisper." He pointed to the ceiling. "Not sideways, but straight up." He blew over the top of his coffee and took a cautious sip. "Strange thing is Patsy said she didn't see anything. She was inside the tent reading her book. When I told her about it, she said she was afraid I'd fallen off the wagon."
Andy peered at him over the top of his mug. "So you were the only one in the area to see the lights?"
