Auralia's Colors: a review

Auralia's Colors: The Red Strand (The Auralia Thread #1) Auralia's Colors: The Red Strand by Jeffrey Overstreet

My review

rating: 4 of 5 stars
What an interesting story Jeff has woven together through the novel of "Auralia's Colors". This is a story to set sometime aside to read and let it soak in. I will bet that this is one that would even fascinate my husband to read.

Sections in this book lost my interest, and I wanted to walk away, but I am glad that I did not because all in all it was quite an enjoyable journey and I plan to read the rest of the Threads as they present themselves.

I found the atmosphere for me was very reminiscent of Stephen Lawhead, especially his lately series including Hood, Scarlet, and in 2009 Tuck.

As a Fantasy novel, this is one of those that you fall into and forget about what is real and what is not. That is one of the hardest parts for me, but once I click into the world, I do not want to leave. I'm so glad that I have Cyndere's Midnight that I can jump into right away.

If you enjoy Lawhead, or Toilken, or Madeleine L'Engle, I do believe that you will find enjoyment through the creative prose that is practically poetry in the writings of Jeffrey Overstreet.
