This review is from: Catharsis, Legend of the Lemurians (Earth Keepers Chronicle 1) (Kindle Edition)
I read all the author's previous books and loved them all. "Catharsis - Legend of the Lemurians", the author's first book of the Earth Keepers Chronicles. It is the prequel to the soon to be released - The Earth Shifter novel.
The population of the red planet Catharsis, on the outskirts of the Andromeda Galaxy, is exceedingly beautiful. Women wear exquisite gowns and gorgeous hairdos, men look stately and dignified, and children are adorable angels. Even the old people are beautiful.
The author has an exceptional talent to blend amazing creative writing, brilliant imagination and current topical issues in her writing. This prequel will appeal to lovers of Star Trek, The Chronicles of Narnia, and Star Wars, all rolled into an exciting new series of fantasy chronicles.
Catharsis has everything, science, astrology, mythology, biblical prophecy, and current affairs, all intertwined in a magical tour de force. You can tell the author puts a little bit of her soul into everything she writes, this pays off exceptionally well, as the reader will always find it difficult to remove oneself from the journey presented.
The author provides an escape into another world with "The Legend of the Lemurians," enabling the reader to visit far off lands and explore them with their imagination, while delving into the deep rooted divisions of the vanity and socially elite orientated "Catharsians," and the humble, but generous Lemurians.
The two races are characterized by opposite extremes in every need morally, socially, in attire and character. This prequel transcends all age groups, Every character has a significance and every page a twist. It contains plots consistent with any YA readers' life experience, it contain strong themes of interest and main characters who are young adults.
There is a uniquely moralistic under current throughout the prequel, and in the manner that the author writes the story. It contains strong values, fosters loyalty and respect, and provides for the type of leadership qualities that we all seek, but rarely find in our own modern day world.
The promise for the future and the sense of the unknown for the main characters is as relevant, and as important to the main characters, as it is to any reader of this wonderful piece.
I encourage any reader or fan of YA to explore this new, exciting and engaging story.
