Took me a while to get 'hooked', then I couldn't put the book down! Having experienced life in Cyprus, the references to time, getting things done, who you know, and location references are all real, and not factual. My reading intensified along with the story - wow! Definitely worthy of progressing to film/series, as it includes many emotions and traits - horror, love, intrigue, loyalty, betrayal, adventure, greed, passion, belief, excitement, mystery, fantasy, history and many more. An interesting, intriguing read with an escalation of events towards the end. Thanks Myron - looking forward to reading more from you.
Excellent book, great story, its truly magnificent of what you can learn about the goddess of beauty in Greek mythology, and whats the story behind it. Totally recommend it. You would love it from the first chapter!! *****
Best of luck with your writing career, I thoroughly enjoyed Mistress of the Rock.
'The TV programme 'Fact or Fake' investigates unique phenomenons, that sometimes stretch the imagination of the viewer. More over many of the so called sightings are tested and put down as fake pure and simple. That cannot be said about the phenomenon that exists today in the waters of the Mediterranean on the island of love, the birthplace of the goddess Aphrodite, for this unique offering is about faith, pure and simple you either see it and believe it, or you don't.
It is the catalyst in the book 'Mistress of the Rock' which is due to be launched at BEA in New York this coming May 31st. Writtten by Myron Edwards 64 an ex pat living on the island for some 11 years, it tells the story of ex British soldier Richard Cole whose experiences in the Gulf War of 1991 plunge him into a battle between what is real and what Is fantasy. Haunted by the images of war, his mind looks to find reason but all he finds is a mystery, one that he knows he must uncover one day to find the answers.
These answers begin to come together when he and his wife Julie a one-time ex Bostonian travel to Cyprus for a well-earned vacation, unbeknown to them that fate will deal the cards that will set them both on separate paths.
Meeting up with Richard's former helicopter pilot pal Peter Shaw who now lives with his wife Sheila on the island as expats, Peter invites Richard and Julie to take a ride in his borrowed helicopter. Reluctantly Richard tags along, for he fears that this journey will once again ignite his troubled mind. But in fact, the opposite happens and the answers that Richard has long been searching for now begin to unravel and a mystery that remained hidden is now discovered, which starts a plethora of events, some which Richard may not be able to control and putting him and Julie on a collision course, with forces unknown and unrelenting. Culminating in a climax of choice between what is real and what is fantasy.
If you still have doubts take a long, long, look in the waters of Petra Tou Romiou and tell us what you see? Go on look deeper, deeper, deeper!
I wish you the best of luck with it and will be first in line to buy a ticket!
