A plot full of tension and (impossible) choices made for one great read - The Magic of Wor(l)ds

In a post-apocalyptic future, a girl and a monk, both with extraordinary mental powers, have compelling reasons not to fall in love. But their choices will have consequences for the rest of the world.

After the troubles of his youth, Brother Prospero has found comfort and fulfilment in the monastery. Then he discovers something that forces him to reconsider his whole vocation. How can it possibly be right to leave a life of worship and service for human desire? And if he does leave, will the pressures from his past destroy him?

Orphaned and mistreated, Leonie has found sanctuary and safety at the Abbey. When she comes into contact with Prospero everything spirals out of her control. Everyone she’s ever loved has died. She can’t do that to him. But how can she walk away from the first place she’s truly belonged?

Abbot Gabriel is faced with an impossible choice. He can do nothing and watch the world descend into war. Or he can manipulate events and ensure peace – at the cost of two lives that he is responsible for. Is he strong enough to sacrifice those he loves?

Quite a good story, well timed. Well conceived and researched. Factual monastry life for a future fantasy. Interesting build up of suspense, then nothing!!! Just a cliff hanger. They used to do this inthe serials at the movies, but you knew it was coming. I cosider this an underhanded commercial trick, not worthy of a christian writer. As curious as I am, I won't be following this series to find out what happens, for I won't be fooled twice.

Third-party review
Captivating characters and a positive portrayal of faith: refreshing. I fully intend to purchase the rest of the books of this series. The central characters face a variety of tensions that cause their responses to be difficult to predict, yet believable.
