The Weather Vane by Gedalia Gershon is a well-written adventure with a strong appeal to both fans of science fiction and fantasy. I enjoyed how the author merges worlds, creating unique settings and obstacles that characters have to face, hence augmenting the pulse of the narrative. Readers encounter a group of ascended and skilled masters who have just discovered they have a new mission: join the phenomenal battle between good and evil. But before they even get started on their new mission in the afterlife, they are shipwrecked. They are stranded in an unreachable reality and must find the path out of this magical world.
This is an engrossing story that shouts out loud in its originality. While the author builds the plot on the legendary struggle between good and evil, it is in the details that the originality of the story lies. The characters are phenomenal, extraordinary humans entrusted with a mission, who find themselves stuck in a place no one knows. Like a chess game, they have to play around and uncover clues. Their humanity is real as they get frustrated with their fate and long for answers. The prose is impeccable, filled with vivid descriptions and imagery. There is a strong sense of unpredictability in the plot which makes it exciting. It is hard to guess what could happen next and the author uses premonition to create interest in readers. Gedalia Gershon has created a spellbinding story in The Weather Vane with memorable characters like Bosun Bicklesworth and Rosalie, and readers won’t forget the unique way these characters speak. They belong to their own world, and their language captures it so well.
