Tree of Life Spiritual Poetry Book Review: Dance that continues
Tree of Life - Nataša Pantović Nuit

Tree of Life Spiritual Poetry Book Review: The poetry dance that continues, that inspires, that moved me to continue my own search of beauty. Never too late, never too early for the Kundalini dance, spiritual  opening, universal music to God and Goddesses.

Subtle yet real, into the energy of enlightenment, light and laughter. 9th book of the Series continues to build the energy of alchemy of love. Loved it!

Wikipedia says; "The concept of a tree of life is a widespread theme or archetype in the world's mythologies,... The tree of life is mentioned in the Book of Genesis; it is distinct from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. After Adam and Eve disobeyed".

"I see You, Every time I look into Buddha’s eyes. I give myself to You. Every time I alter one of Your 1,000s names. Honestly & fully I love You. Through Christ and Maria, Shiva and Shakti, Krishna and Radha, With every day that passes and every breath I take. I enter gratitude for receiving Your Love. Obeying Your Laws of Truthfulness and Ahimsa, Weaving Prana With hearts and souls of Gaia. Through mysticism, shamanism, Sufism, and ecstatic meditations. I yearn to touch You, to feel You, to be You. Within this amazing Journey of Awareness of Your Consciousness." Nuit, Tree of Life

A-Ma Alchemy of Love - Nataša Pantović Nuit

Loved this deep and intriguing novel!

Back into the 17th century, gliding through Amas life, exploring the wisdom of China (such a fascinating culture) and multi-leveled dimensional stories of Reuben, the man with no name, tales of Macau, A-Ma goddess, Father Benedict, and Lilith was a very special experience.

Within my own life I already had a fascination with Chinese I Jing, Feng Shui, the Chinese most fascinating character writing, so I found my own sanctuary within the setting of Nuit-s 17th century story. An uproar of wisdom that can not be contained by religious dogmas, I was re-incarnated within such a complex setting working with enlightened minds of the time. I felt that this is exactly what Nuit wanted us to do, take an active role, worship the Temple of Ama, return to own quest to follow the river to its ocean, become one of many that instigates the change.

Beautifully written, with a strong spiritual message, I also deeply connected to the alchemy thread within the story.

I am very blessed that I had a chance to come across Nuit-s work at the time my focus is within further understanding of Yin and Yang balance, within the understanding of Kundalini, understanding of Goddess, and our, Christians (but also humanity) focus with suffering.

Ama and her friends, lovers, family told me a story of "change", story of "alchemy", story of "transformation" and the book has a deep message for every day of the journey. Yet this is not a book for all. The special, who have the opportunity to come across it, will understand all the levels of the story and get in touch with the feminine eternal wisdom within.

Must read!

A Dragon's Soul
A Dragon's Soul (Dragon Chronicles) - So... A Dragon's Soul (Dragon Chronicles) - Solvig Schneeberg

Titel: A Dragon's Soul

Autor: Solvig Schneeberg

 

Meine Meinung: Erwartet habe ich bei diesem Buch eine spannende Fantasy-Geschichte. Gerade nach dem ersten Teil des Reihe wurde diese Erwartung noch einmal mehr unterstützt. Das bekommt man tatsächlich auch geboten. An Spannung und immer wieder neuen Herausforderungen, die es zu bewältigen gilt, ist wirklich nicht gespart worden.
Leider fand ich die Geschichte insgesamt allerdings etwas langweilig. Zwar passiert ständig neues, sodass man wirklich Spaß daran hat, weiter zu lesen, aber ich hatte auch das Gefühl, dass sich die Geschichte im Kreis bewegt und man am Ende genau da ist, wo man am Anfang bereits gewesen war.

Natürlich geht es auch in diesem Buch um die Liebe. Die fand ich wirklich gut ausgearbeitet, wie diese sich entwickelt hat so im Laufe des Romans. Wenn man aber davon ausgeht, dass es in dem gesamten Werk nur um wenige Tage, geht es schon etwas schnell. Aber bei so einer Anziehung – was soll man anderes machen?

Die Erzählperspektive ist immer so gewählt, dass ein Charakter verfolgt wird. Leider kommt man dabei schnell durcheinander, da sich die Perspektive manchmal pro Kapitel mehrfach ändert. Das ist leider etwas zu viel. Es wäre wohl besser gewesen, nur ein oder zwei Charakteren zu verfolgen oder gleich einen Allwissenden-Erzähler einzusetzen. Durch jenen würden die Charakteren aber nicht mehr ganz so geheimnisvoll wirken, wie sie es eben tun und wie es auch die Geschichte braucht, um spannend zu bleiben.

Die Charakteren sind gut ausgearbeitet. Jeder hat sein eigenes Geheimnis und Motivation, die Geschichte weiter leben zu lassen.

Die Idee von der Geschichte finde ich nach wie vor wirklich gut. Ich habe aber das Gefühl, dass der Plot, der im ersten Band des Reihe seinen Anfang genommen hat, im zweiten ein wenig verloren geht. Dadurch entstehen zwei Bücher, die zwar unabhängig voneinander gelesen werden könnten (ist trotzdem nicht empfehlenswert), die beide aber nicht beendet sind.
Der Schreibstil ist wirklich sehr schön. Es macht Spaß, das Buch zu lesen.
Mit ist aufgefallen, dass zwischenzeitlich die Namen der Charakteren verwechselt wurden. Das ist sehr schade, da man im Lesefluss manchmal einfach anhält und sich fragt, ob das überhaupt so stimmt.

Dieser zweite Teil der Dragon Chronicles schließt fließend an den ersten Teil an. Die Idee für die Geschichte ist sehr gut, allerdings hapert es an der Umsetzung. Leider gibt es einige Defizite, deshalb vergebe ich 3 von 5 Sternen.

Book 11/100: Poor Unfortunate Soul - a Tale of the Sea Witch by Serena Valentino
Poor Unfortunate Soul: A Tale of the Sea Witch - Disney Storybook Art Team,Serena Valentino

I love Ursula, but, alas, this was not the Ursula novel I desperately wanted it to be.

What annoyed me about the book was that it was not a "standalone," which I really feel like the books in this villain series should be in order to give each villain's potentially complex backstory and motives their full due. About half the book was focused on follow-up to events from the previous book in the series, The Beast Within: A Tale of Beauty's Prince, which I wasn't really invested in. Overall, it felt more as if the author was more interested in continuing the story with the auxiliary characters that she had made up for the series than really delving into Ursula's story, which felt somewhat tangential to the story Valentino seemed to REALLY want to tell about the "odd sisters" machinations regarding the various villains in the Disney-verse. Overall, this gave the book a somewhat disjointed feel of two stories being told in parallel, one about Ursula's perspective of The Little Mermaid, one about Valentino's own characters that never appear in the Disney movies and thus don't garner a ton of investment from me.

Despite these issues, I still gave the book three stars because the parts that were focused on Ursula's backstory, especially her relationship with King Triton, were well done. The book was also a fun, quick read and an enjoyable bit of escapism. The writing is passable, and despite my disappointment with this series (and other Disney novel spinoffs overall), I know I will keep reading them because, well, Disney.
