The old stories of man’s rebellion against God to find himself are given a new twist in this novel which combines Greek mythology with the Book of Genesis set against a backdrop of modern technology. Forces are at work to awaken the divine spark inside a seemingly ordinary girl: goddess-incarnate-as-woman yet pawn of greater powers, Maia must tread carefully lest her search lead her to open doors that were not meant to be reopened. Here is Eve again tempted to repeat the act which caused that terrible tragedy: the Great Fall from Grace … or is it the path to redemption?
I am reminded of Tolkien’s Hiding of Valinor, of C.S. Lewis’ “Perelandra” and of Guillermo del Toro’s “Pan’ Labyrinth.” The book made me aware quite forcefully that another world does exist beside our own and only with eyes unveiled can we hope to get a glimpse of it. But as there are those who would once more rip down the veil itself to reveal what lies hidden, the heart is suddenly gripped with foreboding lest the time be not yet ripe for such a revelation. Are we ready to reclaim what we once rejected? The story of the Seven Sisters is our story, too. I can’t wait for the second book!” – Myra B.
