When reality ceases to be real and the surreal takes over, there is nothing to do but place one foot in front of the other and take each moment as it comes. One aspect of shamanism is the belief that whatever happens in the moment is your reality. What you’re experiencing at the time is real for you. Imagine, though, what it would be like to be conversing with an angel one moment and fighting off a horde of the undead the next—all within the space of 15 minutes. These are the kinds of trials that happened to Kristy, and kept happening for the better part of a month.
Regardless of one’s belief in the supernatural or lack thereof, Stark Raving Zen is a real page-turner. Readers will travel every step of this journey with Kristy—thrilled by the fearsome beauty of the Southwestern landscape, comforted by the calm presence of her angel dog Arya, hearts beating double-time in anticipation of whatever new challenge will present itself, just around the next curve in the road.
