Review:
A book that started out feeling a bit 'floaty' (for lack of a better word I can think of). A story about life after death, with a strong religious background and a background rooted in old mythology. The book uses images and ideas from science, religion and well-known paintings in a very interesting way. I wondered for a while where this book would 'go' but after a while it started to come together and get understandable again. Not a simple religious book, but a book to make the reader think. It does have a very open ending, I got quite interested in the sequel.

Review:
The second book about the Quantum Cat, coming after 'Jerome and the Seraph'. This book answers my interest in the continuation of the stories. The book builds on a mix of religious history, greek mythology and images from artworks. The book has quite a special feel to it, differentiating it (a lot) from other books in the same vein (like the da vinci code). Reading the book was a positive experience for me. Robina WIlliams writes in a style that is easily readable.

Review:
This is the second book of the Arkha Chronicles, after "To Save the World". The SciFi with a fantasy twist continues. Or maybe it is fantasy with some SciFi, with special magic and dragons. As far as the series of books go, the plot development in this book is somewhat less than that in the first book. As a book in itself it can stand mostly on its own, without descriptions getting in the way of the story. The fresh perspective of SciFi with a female lead character still stands in this book, without the fantasy angle too much veering off into pink daisies or other 'girlish' things.
