3.0 out of 5 starsSome Unique Ideas, With a Narrow Target Audience
Reviewed in the United States on October 8, 2012
Eda, a young woman from planet Artea, is enlisted by Rainyun, a light-being from the Ephemerine Realm, to help steer her world away from environmental disaster. Reiyas produces a very creative piece of work to provide a unique, cautionary tale. Artea--and the rest of the galaxy, for that matter--is suffering from the use of the destructive tachyonic particle inverse dematerializer, a device built to extract electricity-producing potrillion juice from ocean caves at the expense of the environment. While the dematerializer seems to be a stand-in for fracking, the author is able to make it part of a very believable universe. While this short novel is great to read for its ideas, its focus on spiritualism and New Age principles may not appeal to mainstream readers looking for a face-paced action tale. Recommended for Ages 16-18.
This totally engaging book is especially effective due to its mix of fantasy and some principles of quantum physics creatively camouflaged in a story that not only transcends time and place but saves room for conscious trees, animals and creatures of a multi-dimensional anatomy. As a teacher of gifted high school students and children with learning disabilities, I take the pulse of my students' interest in literature, the political scene, spirituality and religion. I know this book would 'fly' with my students and I intend to recommend it to those who 'think out of the box' as well as for students and adults interested in science and spirituality. I will catch up on all of Mirti's books. I loved this one! Laurie Roper, M.S.
5.0 out of 5 starsThis should be on a the best seller fantasy list
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on October 22, 2012
I really enjoyed this one it was a fascinating read that I read out loud to my daughter who also enjoyed it very much.
This one might make a best seller as it is a wonderful fantasy read that would translate well into film format. I love things that include ultimate universities and this one has it all in spades.
Don't want to do spoilers so I just say, If you do not like alternative fantasy it may not be for you, but if you do then get it you will not regret it, it surprised me and that takes some doing. Loved it, but then this was just up my street.
