Sara's Review

After finishing Mooniana: The Secret of the Lost Chronicles of Sophia, I wasn't quite sure what I wanted to say in my review because of how thought provoking it was, even though I did find some of the thoughts and beliefs of some of the characters to be a little too radical in my opinion. On the other hand, I spent many days after that simply thinking about the book and what I had read. The first thing I know I'd like to say is that I really enjoyed the blending of Greek, Norse, and Indian/Hindu mythology. It was that aspect of the book which caught my attention when I was given the opportunity to read and review this book. That was one of my favorite aspects of the novel, and it held my attention to the very end. I also thought her use of actual historical events from 1991 to the recent past was an interesting choice, but it definitely worked well in the novel, and offered an entirely different point of view on what was going on at that particular time in history. I also loved the fact that it was set in Germany, Denmark and Northern Italy.

There are nine Muses in Greek mythology, and six of them have incarnated upon the earth in various human females, each one representing a various art. The ones in this book were: Polyhymnia, Terpsicore, Erato, Melpomene, Uriana and Euterpe. I don't think there was one that I'd single out as my favorite, but if I had to pick one that I thought was the most prominent character, I think I'd pick Christiane, the harpist, who personified Erato. I found her sister Marliz, to be a fascinating character as well, and she represented Melpomene.

On the other hand, even with a list of characters at the beginning of the book, I think one of the things that slightly detracted from my enjoyment of the book was the fact that by the time I had read to the end, there were times that I was a little confused about who was who, since they had three different names: their human name, the name of the Muse, and a “secret name”, which were used interchangeably throughout the book. Even through this, I thought it was a minor thing, and I still enjoyed the story.

As far as more secondary characters, I liked Paul Vallidin and Iris, the Goddess of the Rainbow, along with Titania and Oberon, Iris' helpers. Overall, I'd give this book a 4/5 platypire rating.

In every epoch and age there are a handful of souls who hear the Earth's voice, hearken to the Muses's song and drink from the font of the Goddess of Wisdom. These are the poets, artists and visionairies of our world: the creative geniuses like Dante, Milton and Blake, whose inspiration and insights have shaped our cultural memory.

Unhappily, with the advent of the modern age the Muses's song has become silent and the font of the Earth's Wisdom has begun to dry up.

To redress this precarious situation, six of the nine Muses have descended from Olympus to take birth upon the Earth. Their purpose is to re-awaken humanity to the inspiration of the great arts and restore the broken links between gods and men. But, the six Muses are not just daughters of Zeus, they are also the daughters of Mnemosyne, the Goddess of Memory, and the granddaughters of Gaia, Mother Earth herself. And when the Muses discover that their mother and Gaia have a totally different agenda for them than their father Zeus, well it is at this point that their loyalties become divided and everything becomes very bloody and messy.

Find out how in this dramatic and spellbinding new novel by Miranda Moondawn "Mooniana and the Secret of the Lost Chronicles of Sophia".

Author Inspiration

Miranda Moondawn
Miranda Moondawn

Miss Miranda Moondawn is a pseudonym for an author who currently resides in Copenhagen Denmark and wishes to enjoy anonymity. In the literary field, Miranda is a student of English Romantic poetry, 19th century Fairy-tales, Magic Realism and the mythopoeic. She is also a practising student of Advaita-Vedanta and the Tantric Maha-Vidya Yoga systems of India, along with Gnosticism and the Western Hermetic traditions, such as the Golden Dawn systems of Alchemy, Tarot and Qabalah.

These literary and esoteric studies and practises from both the East and the West form the foundation of her novel Mooniana and the Secret of the Lost Chronicles of Sophia. In fact, one of the main themes and aims of the novel is to re-negotiate the various literary and spiritual traditions of East and West and find relevant places where they overlap and concur. In Miranda's highly original novel this unique East-West overlap often revolves around the iconography and lore of the various Hindu, Greek, Nordic and Celtic Goddesses - the world of Shakti-Sophia.

The Adventures of JoJo Smith is an interesting tale of a 'very' English Englishman who suddenly finds himself transported back into the middle ages. The writing is very descriptive and the story unusual enough to keep you turning the pages. I also found several of the characters to be quite endearing, a good read.
