Return of the Effra 1-Vortex by Lindsey J Parsons
I’ve not read high fantasy for a number of years, having found little difference in the stories on offer; you know the kind of thing I mean: swords, sorcery, wizards and elves. Well this book has all that and much, much more. Ms Parsons has managed to combine both the contemporary and the mythological in this, her debut published novel, and thus make it different from the majority of high fantasy tales.
All the characters are engaging and the unusual love affair between the main protagonists, Samantha and Damien, gives a unique flavour to the story. The settings are described in a tight and focused way, allowing the reader just enough imagery to step into the world created by the author and make it their own.
All in all this is an engaging read and one I would highly recommend.
