The BookViral Review:

An excellent example of the metaphysical and Religious Science Fiction & Fantasy genres, ‘The Asuras’ spans space, time and consciousness in a glorious challenge to the fundamental perception of reality, existence and the universe.

Neil Perry Gordon transports us, with his protagonist, Emma, into an adventure beyond her, and our, wildest dreams, where good and evil beings, keenly interested in world affairs, fight for control over the most influential and high-profile figures, bending them as pawns to fulfil their own desires.

With wonderfully expressive language, Gordon presents biblically harvested Archangels and their nemesis, the Asuras; both mighty, but with very different objectives: the Archangels to bring peace and harmony, and the Asuras to shred to pieces a world already hanging in the balance and tipping precariously close to disaster. 

When Emma discovers the magnitude of the role chosen for her, she embraces its challenges, despite feeling overwhelmed with responsibility. Within her dreams, she travels into alternative realities of thought, pattern and form, facing philosophical dilemmas and creating psychological connections with creatures beyond the known realm of the physical, as they become evermore connected to her waking moments in a terrifying spiral of the hunter and the hunted.

The allegorical and physical become intrinsically linked in a surprisingly believable and logical concomitant relationship between the supernatural and material world, in in a brilliant display of good versus evil.

Gordon’s storytelling is strong, with bold brushstrokes which confidently challenge his readers, forcing them to feel the power struggle in brightly illuminated sequences of imagery. He deftly contrasts real life and dreams until they collide spectacularly in a nail-biting sequence of lightness and darkness. 

Gordon’s ability to peel back the veneer of life demonstrates an astonishing and insightful exploration of mankind’s place in the universe. An unmissable read, The Asuras-A Dreamworld Odessey will transform your perception of the world.

Authors writing about prejudice and racism in literature

Whilst the issues of prejudice and discrimination are multi-faceted and complicated beyond belief, a key moment for me was the day I picked up ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’. Harper Lee implicitly drilled down the relative unfairness of human existence into my 12-year-old brain, creating a sense of outrage that has stayed with me throughout my life.
