In The Sixth Coming, by author Richard Donahue, mythical and some not so mythical beasts abound, as does mystical intrigue and suspense. Journey back to a time to the dawn of science when magical still was the most powerful force in the land.


The Sixth Coming

Reviewed by Paige Lovitt for Reader Views (6/11)

“The Sixth Coming” takes us to another time and place where magic exists and science has not been created yet.  Vibrantly written, we follow along on the journey of a young woman of royalty who goes through the process of discovering her gifts as a Shield Maiden.  This was not an easy journey for her because it involved having to suffer through the loss of her loved ones as she has battles to triumph over a powerful and evil king. 

The Shield Maiden’s story begins with the reader being introduced to her loved ones.  Each character is well developed and had distinctive characteristics. When bad things happen to them, we also feel her loss.  We also learn more about how she came to be, and how important loyalty is to her survival. The places that this story takes us to are either incredibly beautiful, or eerily foreboding.  The creatures in it are also very uniquely described and incredibly different from the mundane realm that we currently inhabit. 

As I read this story, I felt like I was envisioning a movie rather than reading words typed onto a formerly blank page. “The Sixth Coming” is the first book in a trilogy.   I think it will be interesting to follow along and see what the author has planned next for this incredible place and people.
