The Myth of Love
The Myth of Love by Randy Niederman is a great read, a gorgeous offering for fans of pulp fiction, a thriller with characters who will excite readers and remind them of a part of them that is often forgotten.
Readers are introduced to a spiritual setting where the “gods” are at a loss over what to think of human evolution and consciousness.
“The Myth,” for the gods, constitutes a belief that human beings can alter the repeating cycle of creation the moment they transcend human consciousness, and, for this to happen, they must follow the path of love. Now, two divine beings —The One and The Second — who have never known any feelings decide to leave their immortality and experience humanity in its fullness. They become Jimmy and Tasha.
Follow Jimmy and Tasha in their adventure in a real human world, their origins unknown to them. They seek the path that leads to their heart, and perhaps to the embrace of love if they’re able to unveil the mystery. But transcending human consciousness poses a more serious threat to both the physical and the spiritual realms, a threat that could ensure the very end of the universe. And the gods must act or know destruction.
Niederman’s book is well-written, and the premise of the book comes across powerfully in the prologue. The reader is immediately introduced to the source of the conflict that will be developed in this book. I loved the idea of how this story was conceived, but the execution was brilliant, and many readers will feel like they’ve encountered the characters in a place they once knew, a place they have forgotten. The pacing is great — neither hastened nor slowed down — and the characters feel real. The author writes with confidence and has the unusual gift of exploring human emotions with forensic clarity. The Myth of Love is intriguing, balanced, and utterly entertaining.
