More About This Title The Bubble Rule


(Book 1 of "The Grover Series", Angel Through the Storms, first introduces Dr. Luc Fontainebleau, his girlfriend Lola and her son Grover, a spiritual avatar.) Duryodhana Talwar, Indian Mafia mob boss now business tycoon, experiences a vision of a young boy, Grover, Keeper of the Flame. In it, he confronts another stranger, his own conscience calling him out. This, he cannot allow, thus he vows to find this child intruder and eradicate him. Dr. Luc Fontainebleau is recovering from the psychological trauma caused by Lola's disappearance during Hurricane Katrina following her psychotic break. He, Lola and Grover are in Mumbai visiting friends while New Orleans remains under martial Law in the wake of Katrina and Rita. Lola takes action against a brothel exploiting child sex slaves. This leads to the rescue and their custody of an eleven-year-old girl from Nepal named Binita. Luc deems Lola's crusade to be irrational, that it arose from her own traumatic experience of childhood sexual abuse, and worries that it could trigger an exacerbation of her dissociative disorder. But a part of him really believes that she, like her son Grover, is an "angel". Thus his belief in her is continuously challenged by his scientific mind. When Lola's mission expands to encompass Grover's karmic entanglement in the life of Duryodhana Talwar, Luc has difficulty making the leap of faith required of him and disobeys those who possess a higher knowledge. This choice, not without warning, creates his own personal "Katrina" through which he must fight to save his mind from a hostile takeover. Ironically, Duryodhana Talwar is simultaneously fighting the same battle within himself as he faces the consequences of his past actions – where else, but in the field of Kurukshetra*. *Kurukshetra allegorically refers to the inner battlefield within each of us whereupon the divine qualities (the Pandavas) of the soul battle with the baser qualities (the Kauravas) of the ego. Author's note: The Kurukshetra War is a mythological war described in the Indian epic Mahabharata as a conflict that arose from a dynastic succession struggle between two groups of cousins of an Indo-Aryan kingdom called Kuru, the Kauravas and Pandavas, for the throne of Hastinapura.
