Review

Reviews Lisa Gordon tells the story at a cracking pace and it passes the time quite amiably.You get a real feel for the settings of Dubai, its exotic colour mixed with danger, which is interesting to read. --The Astrological Journal

When I started this book it seemed to be light holiday reading but as I read on the suspense tightened and I found I was reading a really good thriller. -Richard Llwellyn of Api-uk.org --The Astrological Journal Most entertaining and well worth reading!

She has an affinity for place in this and it turns A Sealed Fate into something a bit more complex than I initially thought. This is the debut novel by Lisa Gordon and it was a very competent one". - My Favourite Books

My Favourite Books Most entertaining and well worth reading! It is well written and engaging, rushing you along with some surprises and twists which really keep you guessing until the last page! --Nina Lazarus, Esoteric Book Review This novel can offer sumptuous feast to the lovers of esoteric fiction. --Express Starteller --Nina Lazarus, Esoteric Book Review

"For a slender offering, it is a complex novel, written with great care. It is also one of the hardest books to categorize as it fits in both in the thriller genre as well as the much overlooked esoteric fiction genre. It makes you wonder about things such scary things as destiny, fate and karma. She has an affinity for place in this and it turns A Sealed Fate into something a bit more complex than I initially thought. This is the debut novel by Lisa Gordon and it was a very competent one".

My Favourite Books Product Description 'As you read through it, you might say, "Oh...I see where this is going," but believe me, you don't.' Susannah St Clair Foxy Loxy (Vine Voice) A chain of tragic deaths across Dubai spanning two decades, only Valda knows they were not accidents, but murders.

Her name is next on that list..... Spunky singer Valda ditches her old life in Cape Town for a new start in glittering Dubai. Armed with just her cigarettes and some attitude she sets about reigniting her career and putting to bed the heartache over her former boyfriend Richard.

Valda does indeed find success and to her astonishment love, but all is threatened when she is introduced to a billionaire Sheikh. Her clandestine liaison with the Sheikh, propels her into a murky web of deceit and when newspaper clippings of seemingly accidental deaths across Dubai are posted anonymously to her it is clear she is rushing headlong into the same fate. No one dare cross the Sheikh and she can hardly hardly turn to the law, so with few options open she confides in Larissa.

As an astrologer, Larissa predicts that Valda and the Sheikh's destinies were sealed from the moment of their first meeting; however she keeps the dire fate that she reads in the charts a secret. Together, Valda and Larissa take a gamble in a game of cosmic Russian Roulette where the stakes are their lives and their adversary, Fate itself.

A thoroughly modern cocktail of intrigue, passion and suspense set against the exotic locales of Cape Town and Dubai with an eclectic mix of characters, a perfect beverage if you like a tangy lemon peel in your drink as this one has a twist at the end too, but you'll have to read it to discover it.

Format: Kindle Edition
A riveting read. Cleverly written this modern suspense thriller charts the story of Valda and is set in the exotic but dangerous locations of Cape Town and Dubai. Containing destiny, fate, karma, intrigue and passion it is an edge of the seat read. Its emotional impact is chilling and often quite scary and its tight description and dialogue create real tension. That said it is an easy read and has an easy plot that suddenly shakes you with its swift turns. The journeys between Cape Town and Dubai are very tense and often chilling. The atmosphere and culture of Cape Town and Dubai come alive on the page and Gordon cleverly weaves all this into easy dialogue and vivid descriptions. Once the reader is comfortable with the story along comes another sudden twist. The storytelling is compelling and moves at a fast pace making the book difficult to put down.
The characters are well written and relationships both warm and friendly through to cold and chilling. Valda soon realises that a chain of tragic deaths across Dubai over the last twenty years were not accidents but murders and her name is next on the list. As this unfolds Lisa Gordon keeps the reader guessing as Valda's relationships with Richard, the Sheik and his bodyguard Ahmed, Charles and Brett develop. Her professional meeting with Larissa turns into friendship and a strong sense of trust between the two as they unwittingly test the assumptions of fate, free will and destiny. All the time I felt I knew what was going to happen next, then was quickly sent in another direction.
Well worth reading, I look forward to reading more novels by Lisa Gordon.

This is an intriguing novel that's well written. It's nicely conceived and executed and keeps the reader involved. The characters are developed pleasingly and are very believable. The diversity of the characters, locales and flavor of this mystery certainly draws the reader in and makes you feel like you're there. Your mind will be thinking of conclusions to the story but there's no way you will ever predict the ending. Nice job! Well worth reading.

Format: Paperback
This is a light, unusual, holiday, escapist read. It doesn't fall within a typical genre and has elements of suspense thriller, romantic drama and crime novel. Not being particularly interested in astrology, many of the references to 'planetary' influences over our lives went over my head but I still found the overall theme of free will vs fate fascinating to explore.

I thought the story was slow to start but it revved up at around page 40 and I was glad I stuck with it. The pace then gradually increased to a frenetic speed towards the end. The second half of the book was gripping and intriguing. However, the conclusion was abrupt. I was left wanting more and would have liked to see the story and charaters develop further.

A fascinating story with many twists and turns and good writing. This was the second Lisa Gordon I had read and I must say her writing is going from strength to strength. I found it unputdownable and was disturbed and amazed by the ending. Recommended to anyone who's interested in the arts of divining and fate and life in general. Extraordinary things can happen to outwardly unextraordinary people.

I bought this book as a page-turner (according to the reviews on Amazon). Unfortunately it didn't live up to the hype. The story is fairly simple, the language uncomplicated and the ending was very neat and somewhat contrived, in same the way that TV soaps wrap up a storyline. I'd call it "beach reading" i.e. it won't tax you.

I started reading this and suspected it was chick lit, but I persevered and really enjoyed it. There were times when I felt it was too slow, and others that it jumped too quickly, but on the whole, I was impressed, well worth a read.
