Review of THE HARMONY OF ISIS by Catherine M. Walter


Author:  Catherine M. Walter

Four stars

The Harmony of Isis is an unconventional, yet curious
fantasy/romance novel.  Maggie, a museum
curator, finds herself entrenched in a love triangle with t
wo hunky rock star brothers.  Her plight is
somehow reminiscent of the relationship between Isis, Osiris,
and Typhon in ancient Egypt.  In fact, the
author hints that Maggie may herself be a reincarnation of Isis,
and that one of the boys is actually
Osiris, Isis’ true love, who was murdered by Typhon in jealous rage.
The book intrigues then confuses the reader.  The characters
are passionate and the themes breathe
sensuality; however, the sexual imagery is so masked behind
euphemisms that it lacks emotion.  In
defense of the author, ancient Egyptian and Freemason s
ymbolisms are foreign to modern sensibilities. 
Perhaps to an anthropologist, the love scenes exude passion.
Catherine M. Walter is a solid writer.  She has also added her
own drawings and maps to aid the reader
in understanding her explanations within the book. 
Egyptology enthusiasts are in for a treat.
