A Sealed Fate
To escape the pain of failed relationships and careers, both Valda and Larissa take themselves to Dubai seeking not only success, but a reason and purpose in life. Valda does indeed find success and to her astonishment love, but all is threatened when she is introduced to a billionaire Sheikh. Her clandestine relationship with the Sheikh, propels her into a murky web of deceit, and she turns to Larissa for help. As an astrologer, Larissa predicts that Valda and the Sheikh’s destinies were sealed from the moment of their first meeting; however she keeps the dire fate that she reads in the charts a secret.
This gritty thriller has a spiritual theme which bravely merges genres and embraces with sensitivity personal relationships underlying the theme of choice versus chance. Upbeat and contemporary in style, A Sealed Fate features an eclectic mix of characters awash with local colour.
‘Most entertaining and well worth reading! It is well written and engaging, rushing you along with some surprises and twists which really keep you guessing up until the last page!’
Nina Lazarus, Esoteric Book Review.
‘For a slender offering, it is a complex novel, written with great care. It is also one of the hardest books to categorize as it fits in both in the thriller genre as well as the much-overlooked esoteric fiction genre. It makes you wonder about things such scary things as destiny, fate and karma. She has an affinity for “place” in this and it turns A Sealed Fate into something a bit more complex than I initially thought. This is the debut novel by Lisa Gordon and it was a very competent one. ’ MyFavouriteBooks
‘Lisa Gordon tells the story at a cracking pace and it passes the time quite amiably. You get a real feel for the settings of Dubai, its exotic colour mixed with danger, which is interesting to read.’ The Astrological Journal
