As a child I loved reading fairy tales with all they presented and even asked for the complete Andrew Lang series of Fairy Tales as a wedding gift. In those stories of my childhood there were good and bad entities, problems to overcome and usually a happy ending for at least one or more in the story. That is why my overall feeling about this story is that it is a fairy tale for adults with good overcoming evil, otherworldly creatures coming to earth to help out, a quest of sorts and a sort of prince and princess. Then, add into the mix some astral plane events, predetermination of who and what life lesson you will have while on earth, mediums, witches, guardian angels and spirit guides and you might get just a taste of what this story holds in store for those who read it. The only quibble I might have is that in the first chapter or so I had a bit of trouble sorting out who was who and just what each one was but by persevering I had a wonderful read and met some very interesting characters.
