by David Russell author of Self's Blossom.

25-6-2015.

"This monumental work, really breaks down literary categories in the quest for truth. The Lost Chronicles of Sophia are the 'Gospel' of Mary Magdalene, expressing Goddess values, apparently destroyed when fanatical Christians wrecked the library of Alexandra, terrified of the claim that Christ's ...true teaching was communicated to Mary Magdalene, rather than to his Disciples, and that Mary Magdalene was his lover. The novel is concerned with the rediscovery of this book, its resuscitation and application of its fundamental lessons - to replace Patriarchal tyranny with Matriarchal truth.

Involved in the physical, and metaphysical quest for the Gnostic truth of this book is a 'star-studded' mass of world mythological entities . . . Greek, Nordic . . ."

"There is tension between the feminists' pacifist ideals and the possible need for force to eliminate the patriarchy. Many of the women were mistreated, and longed to 'get one back' on their abusers. Their number includes Hecate, who embraces darkness and evil, but has right on her side because of her past suffering, just as, in Dualism, a Snake can be a Saviour, and the Devil God's alter ego. All the 'godly' characters have 'flawed mortal' characteristics which make them convincing. Dualism/contrariety is prominent in the main characters: "I am everywhere loved and adored, and everywhere condemned and despised . . . formless yet with infinite variegated forms".

"The author reflects on 'cyclic time'; there is an angel 'walking backwards into the future'. "Thousands of years of history had already happened, were yet to happen and were happening." Mooniana oscillates mythological antiquity and contemporary life - world politics - and today's popular culture - including pop stars and Bollywood cinema, linking the occult to the everyday. The characters also drift out of, and into, their own bodies. As a 'bridge, it focuses on fashionable 'New Age' cults, including a 'free school' - the Albatross Boarding School, as well as a hippie commune and an experimental theatre in Verona - featuring a wide video screen plus music, dance and drama events which melt into spiritual/mythical areas."

"There are two parallel love stories: Joanne Voegrin, a harpist, becomes obsessed with her teacher, Paul Vallidin, while Christiane Wulff develops a fascination for Oriental Studies professor Franz Abel. Each woman holds her beloved in of awe, whilst feeling a degree of irritation with their seeming pedantry and pomposity. Both couples oscillate between their mundane personalities and their mythical entities - Joanne became the mystical Sophia."

"There is an in-depth exploration of transcendental eroticism, including the practice of coitus reservatus. The six offspring of Zeus are challenged to share 'the Philanderer's son without any jealousy or rivalry between you . . . if you can do this, I will grant each of you your deepest and most ardent desire - including usurping the Throne of Olympus. Another ritual includes a suitably androgynous Hermes figure who is, however, an object of some suspicion, perhaps a 'two-faced' intermediary between the Goddesses and the male Ruler. There is a beautiful Sapphic consummation. On another occasion, Ashok, a male 'initiate' is supposed to abnegate his maleness in order to bond with a group of six sisters - become a seventh sister. But he must somehow regain it in order to overturn the patriarchy: "Without his arrogant, ambitious ally (his Daimon), how could he write the Sisters' narrative?" Also, the Goddesses had initially held a stance of neutrality, which they were forced to abandon through being outraged. They had to take on some of the terminology of their adversaries: "In your name we shall avenge you, and destroy the destroyers, wiping every last vestige of the tyranny and greed of the cult of the one God from the face of the planet." But it still remained necessary to 'create a neutral zone on earth'.

There is some questioning of the relationship between earthly and spiritual love: "Joanne seemed oddly unemotional. Either she was glad to rid of a romantic rival, or else she was very advanced in Yogic detachment."

"Some quite perceptive searchings of the relationship between art and 'real life': "For Lorely's characters, life could only be a play. These chaotic characters would find themselves again in real-life situations which were, in reality, only external mirrors of well-rehearsed internalised rituals and narratives." There had previously been a reference to Kierkegaard: "A man writes a novel in which one of the characters goes mad. At some point in the story, the one writing the novel goes insane too, and he finishes the work in the first person." Similarly, fictionalising can be a two-way process, as Paul tells the sisters: "Just as I am writing your story, you are writing mine . . ."; "They were both poets and would meet in each other's poems and stories which were just as real." No omniscient narrator here!"

"Part of the conclusion is presented in dramatic form, which adds a further, living dimension to the focus of the theatre venue. Characters described in narrative become characters speaking for themselves; third persons become first persons. This further accentuates the hypnotic effect of the many dance rituals portrayed in this work."

"The author treated the 9/11 attacks as a sort of Armageddon, a symbolic destruction of the old patriarchal order. This interpretation, I feel, was totally appropriate to the time when those incidents took place - but perhaps less so, in terms of what has passed under the bridge since then. She makes a minimal reference to the rise of the Islamic state; perhaps some updating would be in order."

  David Russell

The Children of The Dragon sf/vampire fusion series is epic science fiction, , myth and history, romance, tragedy and triumph; linked together by the common theme of the vampire as hero. Picture the protagonists as superheroes with fangs and you will get the idea. There are currently 8 books in the series already published, with a 9th in the works. For more information, visit http://www.antellus.com/.
