A chain of tragic deaths across Dubai spanning two decades. Only Valda knows they were not accidents, but murders. Her name is next on that list.

Spunky singer Valda ditches her old life in Cape Town for a new start in glittering Dubai. Armed with just her cigarettes and some attitude, she sets about reigniting her career and putting to bed the heartache over her former boyfriend Richard….

I was asked to review ‘A Sealed Fate’ by Author Lisa Gordon.

Now I am not really into fiction books per say but when asked to do a review I always give it a bash, especially as I was told that this particular fiction book had a spiritual theme.

I was captivated immediately, as the main character lives in Cape Town and in an area I have frequented in the past. The author describes this impeccably, you are instantly transported there and start to discover the main character; who’s fight for every day survival after a break up with a former partner, soon takes a dramatic turn to very unusual life choices, love, friendship and skullduggery!

As the title of the book suggests you soon realise it’s a thriller with a spiritual twist, morality and metaphysical means are interwoven giving the reader an added bonus if they are that way inclined. I certainly found it a welcoming addition to a fiction book… I thoroughly enjoyed it!

All in all this book is very well written from beginning to end, captivating and is an a easy flowing read. Although, my only gripe were the two main characters names, which were both unusual and I became a little confused at times but that’s just probably me…

As someone else suggested on a review elsewhere it would be great for taking on holiday and I totally agree!

Lisa Gordon is certainly talented and I can’t wait for her to write another, whether a sequel or along similar lines and definitely gets the thumbs up!
