A Question of BalanceA Question of Balance, The Doctor and the Witch Book One
By Trish Reynolds; Pagan World Press (Dubsar House Publishing)The battle between good and evil, light and dark, rages supreme in this well written book. The Witch, a Priestess of light and The Doctor, a scientist of the paranormal, become entangled with each other and the high leaders of a worldwide organization (The Order) following the left hand path. The Doctor and the Witch combine their talents in science and magic to foil The Order’s attempt to obtain three powerful talismans that will allow them to push the world and the universe into black chaos.

The book is a bit on the dark side for my tastes. There are graphic descriptions of torture scenes, which left me a bit uncomfortable. Thankfully those portions of the book were brief and did not detract from my enjoyment of the story as a whole.

The only negative thing I can say about the book has more to do with the production itself, and not the engrossing saga unfolding in its pages. There were an obvious number of proofreading errors and problems with some of the paragraphs’ type flowing together. Still, all in all, I could figure out which words were missing or misspelled and follow the story. I’m sure another reader who doesn’t spend their time getting paid to see these kinds of errors in the written word would find them a minor inconvenience.

(Note from the book’s author: I received a pre-production copy for review and the typos have been corrected)
