The BookViral Review:
Compellingly readable, readers familiar with O’Connor’s Epiphany Mayall, Psychic Detective series work will know she is particularly adept at writing intriguing stories with real-world relevance that set the tone for her characters and challenges that they will face. And in Xanadu’s Cavern she is once again on form.
Retaining its momentum throughout O’Connor’ weaves a tale of intrigue and suspense. Not simply in the makings of her plot, but in the quality and depth of her characters. A rich and eclectic ensemble that is wonderfully observed, whilst the dialogue that gives voice to each creates a genuine air of authenticity that rarely falters.
Bending her offbeat plot into a number of clever and well-conceived twists readers will love the multiple payoffs at the end. Something very few occult novels seem to demand nowadays and a measure of how well psychic medium Epiphany and ex-FBI arts crimes investigator Maro work together whilst the dialogue that gives voice to each creates a genuine air of authenticity which rarely falters.
They are charismatic but without sacrificing any of the emotional honesty necessary for you to believe in them as she further builds on the backstories developed in books one and two of her series. Indeed, it is hard to imagine two more endearing characters than Epiphany and Maro who once more find their friendship, attraction and loyalty flourish in the darkest of circumstances.
A must-read for fans of the genre Xanadu’s Cavern is strongly recommended!
