Prophetic dreams have haunted Dan Tenney since childhood, foretelling him of a life-changing event that is soon to take place. But before he can learn the meaning of his visions, he is attacked by a shadowy group of extremists: the Brotherhood of the Grail.
Finding sanctuary underground, an ancient relic comes into his possession and Dan begins to understand the path his visions have laid out before him. His quest will be fraught with an otherworldly people and an event that could tip the balance in favour of human existence—or disastrously against it. The mysterious Brotherhood will do everything in their power to prevent Dan from fulfilling his destiny as the Bearer of Ouroboros.
A Sydney writer who grew up by the beach, Patricia Leslie spent six months as an exchange student in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado and has been fascinated by mountains, and what they might be hiding, ever since. The idea for The Ouroboros Key came from her interest in myths and the connections they have with history and religion as we know it. Every country has their own worldview; every culture their own truths. If you go back far enough, you just might find that many of these views and truths are the same.
This is one of the faster paced novels that I have read in a while and it is enjoyable. It appealed to both my enjoyment of paranormal and adventure. When you have visions and a quest looped into one intense story line, you are sure to have a great read. Patricia Leslie has added a good depth of feeling to her characters without overloading you with too much detail. I know it can sound strange but sometimes I feel writers who write about journeys and dreams can get a little too detailed. I don't want to go on for chapters about one or two small dreams; Patricia Leslie, however, does not do this and finds a fantastic balance. The book will appeal to a variety of readers, young adults and adults. I would highly recommend this read for anyone who enjoys the genre; you will not be disappointed.
