The De-Coding of Jo: Hall of Ignorance by Lali A. Love

5 Stars

Magnificently Magical

Love pens a captivating story in The De-Coding of Jo: Hall of Ignorance. I have read other work from this author before, and I really enjoyed it, and this one is no different. It's a wonderful mashup of spirituality mixed with fantasy and magic. Lali writes this story well, showing it rather than telling it. It's a page-turner that brings Jo alive, and each character is perfectly flawed and very impactful. There is beauty in the way this story was written, and it was definitely unforgettable. The story is more than just a young adult story, it could and should be read by those young at heart as well. It's not only inspiring, but relatable to the reader. The story brings in the believable, even if almost impossible. Lali writes, "This ancestry curse was spiritual bondage handed down from one generation to the next, fully exposing its ugly teeth of cruelty and abuse." And that's just the beginning. This book deserves a second read! (and maybe more). Magnificent story, kept this reader turning the pages. The title drew me in, but the story made me stay. The author's technique of intense characters and great plotlines is a gift. It's a great story to follow and try to figure out what will happen next. This author's characters develop and interacts well with the other characters. Lali paints a canvas with words, and lures in the reader, who will not be disappointed. I look forward to reading many more stories by this author. This book is a definite recommendation by Amy's Bookshelf Reviews.
