My latest review – Sophia von X


Sophia Von X is a work of fiction in the suspense, mystery, and parody sub-genres, and was penned by author Victoria Ray. Written for mature audiences due to the inclusion of some explicit language and mild violent scenes, this highly amusing tale lightly mocks the action thriller genre whilst taking readers on its own wild and suspenseful ride. Our central characters are Sabina and Thomas, who find themselves brought together in a visit to a newly discovered tomb of Jesus Christ. Neither is willing to be upfront about the truth of themselves, and Sabina soon finds herself embroiled in a sudden murderous plot involving biblical artifacts, and powerful people who seem to know her potential better than she does herself. 

There was something very James-Bond-meets-Dogma about the reading experience delivered by author Victoria Ray, who injects intelligent, wry humor into every moment of this genuinely suspenseful mystery novel. One of the elements which most impressed me was the dialogue, which serves to introduce us to characters and deepen them immediately due to the variety of distinctive voices used.

Sabina is an excellent foil for the mishaps and bizarre plot twists, for she reacts in an intrinsically human way to which we can all relate. The plot itself is also extremely well-crafted, with a non-stop succession of typically exciting action novel events that come together to form an excellent and engaging parody of themselves. Overall, I would certainly recommend Sophia Von X to readers who enjoy an indulgent, funny, and totally thrilling action/adventure mystery.
