The book was very interesting to say the least. It flowed back and forward between real life and her mind's eye (deep meditative state). It keep you look forward to what's next.

I truly recommend this book. It is a great mystery novel!!! One can really sink their feet on solid ground when diving in the mysterious world of Shema'yah's mind.

Great work Mystic!!!

Awesome Story

What did you love best about The Ritual?

I love that the author centered this story on magic and spirituality.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Ritual?

For some reason the foo dogs always come to mind. After reading this book, I bought two foo dogs that I put at my front door.

Which character – as performed by Michelle Auriana Simmons – was your favorite?

Madame Motarye. I know I spelled that wrong, but the actress did a great job with her.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Paradise kept doing disrespectful things to herself, it moved me to want to slap her in the face.

Any additional comments?

This book was like a roller coaster that makes you happy at one point intrigued at one point, upset at one point, frightened at some points, and joyful at some point. I can't wait for part two.
