It isn't long before Ashlyn & Rebecca both notice that strange things are happening to them but this is soon explained when they find out they are Soterians. Having been called as Soterians they are developing strange powers that they are going to need in order to restore the balance between good and evil. I was expecting this to be a typical good versus evil story - one where the good guys always win - but I really loved the twist that Jacquelyn has put on the series. Evil can never be completely overcome, it can only be balanced out by good. Jacquelyn describes this using the yin and yang symbol - good can be on top but there will always be evil in the world. The Soterians are called on when the balance has been tipped the wrong way and evil is on top. Their task is to restore the balance but as soon as they have done this they will lose their powers.
I found this a really interesting concept - what must it be like to suddenly develop these amazing super powers and then lose them when the threat of evil is under control? It must also be difficult to be called upon to battle evil when you know that you'll never be able to win.Read more ›
