A Pyramid Lake Story: Beneath the Surface, written by Ricardo L. Ogdon, is an engaging tale of the supernatural, the mythical, and the real, imbued with exciting moments of revelation and love. Noah, Sam, Maia, and Ale have been friends since college, and their unlikely reunion for Noah’s birthday triggers an old prophecy that connects two dimensions, the otherworldly and the known reality we all live in. The group plans to celebrate at the iconic Pyramid Lake, a spiritual place surrounded by amazing nature and entwined with centuries of intriguing legends and history. Little did they know that this event would be a life-changing experience for everyone involved and that it would take them to places on a spiritual plain of existence that they never knew existed.
Richard L. Ogdon masterfully and with ease narrates the story of Pyramid Lake and describes the nature of the place so that it comes to life in readers’ minds in such a way that one could easily believe one to be there, transferred to this wonderful place where the spirit transcends the confines of the body itself. The characters are well portrayed in experiencing everything that is happening to them, no matter how strange it might seem, and the connection of friendship and love between them feels real and genuine.
The thoughts in the form of quotes at the beginning of each exciting chapter serve as a reminder to everyone reading, containing marvelous advice on how to live a life full of positivity, self-love, and love and appreciation for fellow man, which I loved. These truthful words perfectly rounded up this wholesome story of Pyramid Lake and the legends and myths that surround it. It is a very positive, almost spiritual experience and a beautiful read.
