    Review of Sedona: The Lost Vortex 5 Stars ┬┐Sedona: The Lost Vo

    Review of Sedona: The Lost Vortex

    5 Stars

    “Sedona: The Lost Vortex” is a long and complex novel, covering elements of paranormal, science fiction, quantum physics, astrophysics, dimensional travel and much more, while still remaining firmly grounded in the “human” range of romance, health, friendship, contempt for those “less than,” arrogance, egotism, and megalomania. Yes, I said it’s complex.

    I almost cannot pull out any single thread from the book because all are so tautly intertwined. So I’ll attempt a short summary of the plot and then simply recommend that the reader try this out for herself or himself; I consider it well worth the reading.

    Gregor, Cadence, and Travis are Los Angeles friends who take a vacation to Sedona, Arizona. Travis befriended Gregor in middle school, and Gregor met Cadence when she was a cancer patient at the hospital where he is a technician. They’ve just entered Sedona when they encounter Lily and Ivy, mother and daughter storekeepers of a “New Age” shop, and Mitchell Briar, fundamentalist evangelist and son of the extremely strict pastor of Sedona’s Christ Church, August Briar. Almost instantly the lives of these seven individuals become inextricably intertwined, in ways that bring both blessings, and serious danger. Author Mikel J. Wilson demonstrates a deep knowledge of psychology, of quantum and astro-physics, and of the differences between Old Testament stricture and New Testament “forgiveness” (a divergence some of his characters can’t comprehend).

    Wow


    So when I was finished reading this I sat there for a good five minutes marveling in the awesomeness of this book while feeling sorry for all the other people around me going about their business having missed out on this experience. All I can say is read this book. It doesn't matter what genre you are into, if you can appreciate something refreshing it's worth the time.

    Thank you Mikel Wilson

    Exciting and enjoyable read! Sedona: The Lost Vortex is a scien

    Exciting and enjoyable read!

    Sedona: The Lost Vortex is a science fiction romance written by Mikel J. Wilson.

    The Review:
    I had a hard time with this book. It took me twice as long to read it as it usually does with books of the same length. Im not sure why other then maybe I think the sheer volume of event happening warranted time to comprehend and absorb. But even though I had a hard time finishing this book, it didn't distract from the read itself.

    Story:
    This well told and complex story had an intricately woven plot with intriguing ideas, theories and multifaceted characters to make one very compelling story with multiple elements of religion, science fact and fiction with a side of romance. There was everything from Sedona vortex history and legends to space aliens. It's like the author took a bunch of sci-fi and human condition aspects and put them in one book. Every chapter led to a new adventure, a new scenario and never had a dull moment. And though there was so much happening and so many characters playing their parts, the author does an amazing job keeping the stories separate until the moment they need to connect.

    Characters:
    I really enjoyed the variety of characters presented in this read. I enjoyed Gregor, Travis and Cadence's friendship but I have to admit as much as I liked Gregor and Travis, Cadence's selfish and angered personality really grated on my nerves. My dislike for her started when she admitted she couldn't like Gregor because of his scars, even though she was attracted to him before she saw the scars. And she wasn't a good friend throughout the adventure they embarked on, weather it was not believing them when they told her something or lying to benefit her own needs.

    I really liked the romance between Gregor and Iris. Their story was riveting and kept me turning the pages to see what would happen next.
    Reverend August was the perfect villain. He was a pious tyrant bend on forcing his distorted religious beliefs of "kill them all" should they disagree with his fanatical views.

    But.......
    I loved the vernacular tone of the writing but at times it was sophisticated in the extreme. Though I'm not adverse to flowery descriptions, sometimes I felt like I was swirling around in a thesaurus.

    The Wrap Up:
    I liked this read. It was original and exciting. It seemed to have left off with a small cliffy so I'd be interested to know if there is a book two in the works. If so, I'd definitely be in line to see where the story goes.

    NOTE: I read this as a R2R with Paranormal Romance & Urban Fantasy Fanatics! at Goodreads. As always, a special thank you to the mods and author for allowing me to participate.
