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 Sheikhâ€™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.
â€˜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!â€™
Nina Lazarus, Esoteric Book Review.
â€˜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 â€œplaceâ€ 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. â€™ MyFavouriteBooks
â€˜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.â€™ The Astrological Journal
