Rope: Ethereal Power of Rings is a young adult paranormal novella written by the World Codex Staff. John Rollins has long had an interest in the metaphysical. An interest which was piqued most recently by his receipt of a valuable Roman artifact, a golden ring, which had been sent to him by a friend, along with a missive describing how that item had come into the hands of his family.
Bret Bartlett, the sender, was convinced that the ring was cursed, and he had determined to bury it once more in the exact location where it had originally been found. His story was a rambling and intricate one which included the story of the near death by drowning experienced by his father; a golden ring found on a beach after a rescue of drowning swimmers; and a windfall inheritance that led the elder Bartlett and his sons to purchase a supposedly haunted house where a woman had died in her bathtub.
The World Codex Staff’s paranormal novella for young and new adults, Rope: Ethereal Power of Rings, poses a fascinating mystery on the power of objects, in this case a heavy golden ring which seemed imbued with a baleful life of its own. I loved the antiquarian feel of the Bartlett story and especially enjoyed the tie-in to Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings Trilogy. As with the other World Codex Staff offerings I’ve read, I found this novella to be thought-provoking and edgy; writing that makes you ponder a bit and stays with you for a while. Rope: Ethereal Power of Rings is most highly recommended.
