The BookViral Review: 

Gripping throughout, Otzi’s Odyssey finds Neil Perry Gordon at his very best with mercurially vivid human and otherworldly encounters and an original narrative that’s sure to capture the imagination.

With Gordon’s previous releases including The Bomb Squad and Hope City, his readers know he isn’t an author to dish up archetypal historical novels and Otzi’s Odyssey certainly isn’t an exception!

Decidedly dark, with a lighter injection of humour courtesy of Otzi’s take on our modern world, Gordon certainly knows how to build a visually powerful tale whilst ensuring the definitive devices of Metaphysical & Visionary Fiction are ever present.

From concept to execution his plot is flawless and his inventiveness hard to deny as he confidently navigates multiple threads to create a delightfully disquieting sense of time and place which lingers long beyond the page.

Gordon’s choice of protagonist could have come unstuck but Otzi being out of step with our modern era makes him particularly intriguing. Allowing his character to evolve throughout the story whilst finding a equitable balance between philosophical expression and the mechanics of telling an enthralling story.

This aspect of Gordon’s novel is further supported by a host of superb supporting characters like the soul hunter Crevak and Miko the Seer which encourage us not only to reflect on the nature of our souls but the meaning of redemption and our wider place in the universe.

A rousing and evocative release from Gordon, Otzi’s Odyssey is a gem to be savoured from an author at the top of his game. Not to be missed, it is highly recommended!
