I enjoyed the book so much, that once I had finished it I immediately began to read it again. Not something I have done with many books.
The Cordello Quest is the first book in The Lazuli Portals Trilogy and it gets off to a cracking start. The story very quickly takes the central character, Keira, from the moors at night to world of Cordello where her quest begins.
During an interview Stephen King once stated that “an opening line should invite the reader to begin the story… it should say: Listen. Come in here. You want to know about this.” The Cordello Quest does just that.
I love stories that take someone from our world into another world of magic and adventure. When you combine a physical journey with the spiritual or metaphysical lessons that the central characters undertake you have story that not only entertains but touches you, the reader, on so many levels.
I loved the attention to detail when describing the world of Cordello. It made the sights, sounds and smells of that world very real to me as I was reading. So much so that I frequently re-read several parts of the book just to engage again with the pictures in my own mind.
The combination of detailed description and the telling of the story from Keira and her partner's (Jason) viewpoint are very well balanced. Their both very different but linked "journeys" add an extra and very welcome dimension to their story.Read more ›
It is very clear from the writing that the authors have not only made up a captivating storyline but believe in the benefits and potential of lovelight in reality.
Anyone interested in spiritual or metaphysical type books will enjoy this book and I am impatiently waiting on part 2 and 3 of this trilogy
I haven't read anything like this since reading `The Celestine Prophecy' many years ago and can happily recommend it. The ending also opens the door to a second follow up and I look forward to reading that.
Well written, no editing problems that I could see just a little too descriptive for me in some places but that is just me, easy four stars.
The narrative gives us not only depth of insight into what life could be like if we lived in a peace-loving and peace-giving world but it also projects "lovelight" from every page; it cleverly interlaces mystery with metaphysics and ultimately gives us a renewed sense of faith that if we co-operate together, the world truly would be a more loving and much improved place.
I deliberately read the book slowly - I wanted to luxuriate in Cordello's rich colours, heady scents, lush textures and breathtaking descriptions of beautiful out-of-this-world places. In fact, I felt sad to leave.
I'm very much looking forward to books Two and Three...
The action started pretty quickly - one minute Keira and her boyfriend Jason were having a not-so-romantic midnight picnic with Jason getting rather drunk, and the next Keira had wandered off and experienced what I can only describe as an intense and bizarre spiritual event. This turned out to be just the beginning of a beautiful yet dangerous journey for Keira and I found her acceptance of the situation she was in particularly admirable, especially when she had no idea where she was or why she was there.
Charls was an intriguing character and with him looking just like Jason Keira was quick to trust him. He introduced Keira to the amazing world of Cordello and its lovelight energy which seemed to be something that others coveted. It was at this point that Keira discovered her purpose in Cordello and although she didn't know the details of how she would complete her quest, she felt confident that she would be shown the way. As the story progressed she faced challenge after challenge and each time I felt concern for Keira and her new Cordellan friends.
I felt connected to many of the words in the book but there was a particular moment near the beginning when Keira said that she had switched off her worry circuit and I just loved this saying - being a worrier myself I've often wished that I could stop worrying and thought that this was a lovely way of describing it (one I will definitely use in the future).Read more ›
