REVIEW: Pursuit by Jim Murdoch


Do dragons exist? Do our dreams become part of our reality? Einarr, a young warrior, follows a riddle from his father to find the treasure of his life. Gaby, a little girl and passionate reader, makes an amazing discovery within the pages of an antique book. Pat climbs a mountain to escape overwhelming changes in his life and his sick pregnant wife. Set in three different time periods, we accompany the protagonists and their individual stories through the challenges and discoveries that change their lives forever. Although separated by time, their adventures and encounters are intricately intertwined across the years. What all of the characters in this book have in common may change your life forever. The mystery, adventure and discoveries in Pursuit will have you claim your very own destiny.

Title:  Pursuit
Series:  N/A
Book #: N/A
Author:  Jim Murdoch
Approximate Book Length:  236 Pages


This one started off a tad slow, but it was necessary for exposition and build up and all. Once it gets going, it’s a mysterious and magical adventure full of riddles. The time and characters jumps can be a little disorienting, but you run with it and it’s integral to the weaving of the story. The dragon is different than expected which is just neat. Most of all, I think it’s the message within that I really appreciate. I don’t want to ruin anything by telling you that message outright, so I’ll just say go give it a shot yourself!

Bottom Line:

This unique and original tale takes you on a soul searching journey that just leaves you feeling good. Pursuit has great re-readability too, so if you’re looking for a different kind of read that will last, don’t miss this one!
