The Secret of Mago Castle is a metaphysical novel written by Rebecca Tinkle. Noah, Toby, Leuters and Angeline are looking for something, even if they don't know it. Noah is a doctor who's been diagnosed with a serious heart condition. Toby is in the stock market and has an ability that's made his life a prosperous, but meaningless one. Leuters has just been released from prison for the sin of finding and promoting a universal wellness product. Angeline is an actress who has not found her place and also has a secret skill. Noah's journey begins on the day before his heart surgery, when he walks into a lecture on life's spiritual significance, given by a woman named Suna. She informs him that she had been waiting for him, and their meeting would change his life.
Rebecca Tinkle's metaphysical fantasy, The Secret of Mago Castle, is an absorbing and uplifting story set in the red hills surrounding Sedona, Arizona. The author quickly introduces each of her characters and involves the reader in their stories. I was intrigued with the author's use of Korea's history in plotting this book, and found her presentation of the Korean creation myth to be marvelous and very inspirational. The Secret of Mago Castle gives you a lot to think about, even if you never visit Sedona or are inclined to meditation. Reading this book made me feel positive and empowered, and after reading it, I'm still feeling that way. I'm also eager to learn more about the Budoji and the history of ancient Korea. I enjoyed reading The Secret of Mago Castle. It's a marvelous story and is highly recommended.
