Book Description

Gifts, inherited through our DNA, develop when we are babies but once socialized those gifts after time are forgotten to lay dormant in the unknown. All natural abilities observed in children of today are denied and eventually locked away with societal conformity being the lock without a key.
An earthquake of such intensity occurred which affected the tilt of the earth on its axis caused by the immense pressure from the fires of hell. This created a tear in the veil that shrouds the reality of the dark from the realm of this world that exists within the light. Rifts appeared creating portals for the accumulated souls of darkness,demons and the like with which to access the surface of the earth. The world speeds forth blending the realms, meshing the old and the new, resulting in changes for all of humankind. This era of changes will soon be known as "The Transition".

5.0 out of 5 stars splendid journey into the spirit world September 26, 2012
By essgee
Format:Kindle Edition
I've seldom read a more visual book than No Harm To Charm. However, there were no photographs to entertain my eyes. Instead, these pictures are beautifully word-painted, and eased themselves indelibly into my consciousness. I came at the book in spurts, having been distracted with other things I had to do over a period of a couple of weeks. I couldn't help having the visions of the characters in here prod at me to get back into the book and journey with them.

The main characters, cast with courage and angst in equal measure, Emily, Lori, Ophelia and Rosalind, are planted firmly on the good side of the fight of Warriors of the Light, and are determinedly set on a mission to protect the world from the evils of the Devil and all his creepy, hideous minions. There's no mistaking the conflict and the clashes between the pursuers of good and the purveyors of all that threatens the followers of the Light. Inserted along the way, supporting figures, imbued with almost the same level of importance to the cause, appear in the form of Rain, Patrick, and Brenner. The interplay with these three is particularly well-crafted and brings a seasoning of lightness and humour to offset the serious engagements needed to thwart the powers of evil.

The last time I encountered such a wondrous journey into and around the spirit world was over twenty years ago when I read Ben Okri's The Famished Road. The balance between the spirit world and the present day is delicately spun in No Harm To Charm, making it an entrancing read, no less magical than the events leaping across the pages. This is a thoroughly enjoyable saga, and thankfully is only the beginning of a series, giving me something splendid to anticipate for my next read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Where does fantasy begin, where does reality end? August 19, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
What can you say about a book that begins with a meeting of old friends and culminates in a questioning of world order? How can you encompass a Pilgrim's Progress of a journey through a land that wavers between the actual and the spiritual?
Guided by the certain navigation of O.G. Tomes' pen the reader is led into a world of magic so intricate and convincing you find yourself within it, feeling it, seeing it. Her forces of darkness are dark indeed, her spirit of light and hope is dazzling. I learned to love her heroes - Emily and Lori, Rosalind and Angel, but I spuriously enjoyed her demons, too. Anyone who claims they have not met Mentula at a party somewhere is disingenuous in the extreme. The blundering Patrick willl charm, the miniscule Rain will disarm. No matter where you come from, her characters live on the page for you.
But more, much more than all of that, O.G. Tomes stirs the fears in the underbelly of a nation. This book is nothing less than a trump for battle, a passionate and desperate plea from the heart.

There is a darkness in this world. Some believe, some don't! After reading this book you might change your mind about what is real and what isn't. Keep the lights ON for the entire Series!!!

Format:Kindle Edition
Very compelling story, deeply rooted in the world most do not see around them. The idea of traveling through time has a different twist to it, and following the young heroes as they learn about themselves and their abilities will give you pause for thought. This book is a journey, so pay attention so you don't miss the turn.The Charms of the Sisterhood ICharms of the Sisterhood II

1.0 out of 5 stars Not a pleasant read August 11, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Found the writing style increadibly irritating and was wishing for the darkness to consume me so I wouldn't have to continue. Finally found the light when turned the kindle off. I feel like I've ran a marathon trying to get through the first few paragraphs. Reading should be a joy not a chore. Was definitely not a pleasurable experience.

More About the Author

Born in 1963 in a suburb of Birmingham, AL. A daughter and sister, mother and now a grandmother she has spent her life caring for those around her. Now with her youngest close to graduating and heading off to college she has found the time to publish the chronicled stories of her favorite characters, some of which were created while she was in the first grade and used in creating story books for her children.

A weaver of tales since her youth, as O.G. Tomes, she now spins the yarn creating story lines from the cloth of life. Meshing the old with the new, giving way for her readers to rethink the whole concept of 'good vs. evil' along with the humorous and darker sides of human nature. You can expect as varied a reading selection as eclectic as her reading tastes are to be produced that follow the inclinations of her natural talents.

She writes from her quaint home atop the mountain in an area of the Appalachians that for centuries has been home to her family. Her unique gifts were fostered by her great grandmother, her grandmother and her father giving her a solid foundation from which she writes.

Self-publishing has allowed her to utilize the multifaceted array of her natural talents in promoting others by mentoring, reviews, interviews and she has produced several book trailers for her literary works, as well as for other writers and authors.

"Some of my first memories are of telling stories to my siblings at bedtime. As I grew older, I was always the one requested to 'tell a story' around the fire at summer camp. The 'consumate narrator' on almost any topic usually kept me close to the line of trouble in school. Time progressed yet I still challenge myself to reach further in to my creativity with established goals as my incentive. Simply, I love to write and create. I cherish my family, whom understands my eccentric and varied approach to everything 'author'.

I shoot a mean game of pool, garden, paint, sew, make my own wine, fish,love to drive fast cars and enjoy harley rides preferably in places like the US 129, the Dragon's Tail, 318 curves in 11 miles! I am a posItive person. My glass is always half full. I believe that laughter can heal the heart and soul of almost anyone. I have a gentle heart but my soul houses a fierce protector, especially of children and the elderly.
I am who I am.. O.G. that would be...........ME!"
