Phoenix by SF Said
Phoenix by SF Said
1 of 1 people found the following review helpful
Phoenix is so good, it shot straight up into my list of 20 best books of all time. SF Said manages to cover life, death and the meaning of the universe in one story, with big dollops of humour and pathos thrown in. Lucky is one of the most interesting and unusual protagonists in MG fiction, and the truth about his clothing's unfortunate tendency to spontaneously combust in a crisis makes for a fantastic reveal at the end. Populated with wonderful characters, Phoenix explores everything from the pointless nature of war to the music of the spheres. It struck such a deep chord, I found myself listening hopefully to the night sky afterwards - just in case I could hear the stars...

Shamanic Meditations: Guided Journeys for Insight,&hellip by Sandra Ingerman

3.0 out of 5 stars Shamanism for beginners, 17 July 2010
This is probably a good introduction to shamanism as Sandra is a wise woman and teacher of long-standing. However, if you already know anything about journeying and have practiced shamanism before, this is very much a beginner's introduction and probably not for you. There is a lot of detailed explanation, which some may find too much. She certainly knows her stuff though, so if you want to give shamanic journeying a try, it's a good start.

5.0 out of 5 stars Going Native, 19 Feb 2010
One of the most beautifully written books I've ever read. Tom Harmer tells his story in a way that conveys a sense of wonder and real magic in a way not many writers can. This book stays with you for a long time.
