Reviews:

“Her work is masterfully woven and absolutely delightful.”– Debi Allen, on Amazon.

Thank you, Debi!

Ms. Revezzo writes soft and lovely prose…all wrapped up in a Celtic tale. ~Babs Z, on Amazon.

Thank you, Babs!

The author has a deep knowledge of Celtic antiquity and has imbued her story with authentic details about gods, practices and beliefs, which was one of the things I most enjoyed about this book along with the hero, a warrior of an ancient Irish race. Not only is Isaac one of the most attractive heroes I’ve encountered in a while but he harbors magic, a potent combination.” ~Laura Hartland, Amazon

ROMCON READERS RATED Passion’s Sacred Dance 7.9_reader_rated_numbers

 Passion’s Sacred Dance was inspired by the Megadeth song, Foreclosure of a Dream.

In the novel I play around with Celtic Mythology. The hero of the novel is one of many nameless immortal warriors in the Tuatha dé Danann’s army. From them I created the Harshad Warriors, a group of warriors who battle the evil god Balor for the fate of the world…. Tuatha dé Danann means “Peoples of the Goddess Danu”. And Balor, well, Balor leads the Formorians, and my characters? Not too fond of the lot of them, at all.

This is where I found the slang they use in the book (don’t worry, I didn’t use a whole lot of it). 🙂 (The original site I used BBC’s H2G2: Irish Slang dictionary seems to be offline)

Bitter Thorn Grove History Center, the sacred ground Stacy keeps, is based on a combination of the Tampa Bay History Center,  The Dunedin Historical Museum, and an art gallery I worked at in college. That’s why she works where she does…because, yep, I have some experience in that. That’s also why she’s so curious about history. 😉 A harshad number is a number divisible by the sum of its digits…for instance, 500. You’ll have to read the novel to find out the significance of the number. 😉 Here’s the book trailer if you’d like to view it.


Reviews:

“When fantasy becomes reality, the battle of good versus evil could be epic! Ms Revezzo has done her homework, rounded up her characters and set the stage for some great reading from start to finish! All you add is your own imagination.” ~Dii, Tome Tender

I love Celtic mythology (although I am no expert) and thought the legend of the Harshad Wars and warriors was well-created. The old myths and creatures blended very well in the modern-day setting and established a good base for future books…. Overall the book is well-written and edited.. and I was satisfied by the end…. I’d recommend this to romance fans who like a strong fantasy story with lots of historical connections, and obviously fans of Celtic myth. A great read! ~Kelly, Friday Night Romance

“.. a good read…. I’ll most likely read the next one… I’d like to see what happens next”  ~Emi Lia, via Amazon, BBPR

“The beauty of the mythology mixed with the weaving of past and present create a unique tale that one cannot help but savor slowly, as reading too fast you tend to miss out on the smaller details that help to construct the what and why as it happens…. This is a smoothly paced story that mixes myth and reality perfectly with the romance… with quite a bit of paranormal elements to add even more enjoyment to this first book in a series.” ~Jackie, House Wife Blues and Chihuahua Tales

“Juli D. Revezzo is a very talented lady! I felt like I was the character in her book! Great action, great story line! Will definitely be looking for her next book! :-)” Alice Dent, at Amazon.

“This book has handsome warriors, battle of good vs. evil and a love story all rolled into one great book! I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Who doesn’t love a good love story?” ~Melanie A. Ramey, at Amazon.

“Fast paced and something that is not done everyday. I enjoyed the story and characters very much. Well worth the effort.” ~Mando Tim, at Amazon.

Shucks! Thank you all!
