Raised by his Mothers on the principles of the Goddess, but not one to believe, Ambrosia longs for the day when he can free himself of faith completely. Rituals of invocation, tales of reincarnation, dimensional coalescence, spirits and the astral plane... he never felt or saw anything during these teachings, and certainly nothing that he would consider proof of the lore, ...more

So a story starts with a jolting fantasy-like first chapter which totally grips you by the throat in its intensity and splendour.Then suddenly you are devoured in a gaping hole of a noir-like scene where a man wakes up hungover in a car, driven by the first woman he ever knew outside of his home, he watches her as her cigarette is expertly and elegantly held in her hand as she explains that he will now begin with his new life.

Wow. And that's just been the first 3 chapters! I love both the

Great book, I enjoyed reading, I would totally get the second book. Thanks to Goodreads giveaways.

So this is a very different type of read. Right away, as a reader, I was thrown off by the concept of the book starting on chapter three. This book details the journey of a young man who is pulled from his world into the modern day. As he comes to grips with his new life, he is haunted by his past, and must do what he can to adjust and survive.

The way he sees things is fresh and new, especially when it comes to pretty girls. I thought the descriptions throughout the book were beautiful albeit

Through the psyche of Ambrosia is a Paranormal Romance about Ambrosia leaving behind his normal life and entering a world where everything is not so ordinary.

Ambrosia meets two women who happen to be twins, and the dynamic between the three of them begin to take an exciting turn adding some fun to the mixture.


As he is getting used to his new life, there are more things around that he discovers and that makes his existence to be harder than

I won't bash this book. I just want to say I loved the premises and the idea behind this book, I'm just not a fan of the exicution. Sorry Byron.

I was given this book for an honest review.

Wow, incredibly written and such a unique story. It starts on Chapter 3 (no, you're not missing any pages) and though it takes a bit to set the scene and characters, once it gets going you'll be happy to have stuck with it. I've finished Book 2 on the heels of this one and let me tell you -- it is way faster paced and the story really takes off. I think this will be a series that people talk about for a long time to come and I can't wait to read the next one!

So I got both the audio-book and the written book, and they are both one in the same as it's the same story, but I will try to remember to put both read/listen in even though I listened to it.

So when you read or listen to this book the story actually starts on chapter three which is actually done on purpose. The author describes many things in the book, which can help you visualize what you are listening/reading even better There is so many twists and turns in the book you never know what will

A compelling paranormal read!

The journey which took us into the city and towards my new home was one of both wonder and amazement. The lights at the heart of the inner metropolis captured and transfixed me with their brimming spectacle of luminescence .......

Ambrosia ventures into a new life of adventure and mystery away from his norm, but very soon he discovers how challenging life was going to be. A beautifully written and highly entertaining tale that grips you from start to finish. A must

Interesting and unique story. This one starts at Chapter 3! The author has a great writing style and there are some twists and turns. I will be reading the second book in this series as I enjoyed this book.

Disclaimer.
I had requested and received audible version of this book for free from the author, in exchange for an unbiased review.

What I liked about the book -
This book is quite unique and different from what I usually get to read. It didn't follow any set formula and charts its own path. The characters are well developed and gritty. The story is very intriguing and captivating, with lots of twists. I liked the author's writing style, which made it a worthwhile reading experience.

I think the plot is very interesting, but the first book falls to short for the whole worldbuilding and expectations, as well as getting to know the other characters like Mona, Summer and Star. I have started book two and Im hoping there will be more to explore there.

I was given a copy of the book for review.

I received a free copy from voracious readers. I am sorry but I could not get interested in this book.

A riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma. Churchills famous description of Russia during World War II also applies to Byron Fortins duo of books A Nexus of Numen and A Swains Affray under the umbrella title Through the Psyche of Ambrosia. Im going to be honest and say for a long time I didnt know what to make of the books; as I worked my way through them and it was work at first what I saw was a story of a young man, Ambrosia, raised in a remote location by four women he calls the ...more
