The Valkyries Paperback
by Paulo Coelho
This is a modern-day adventure story featuring Paulo's supernatural encounter with angels - who appear as warrior women and travel through the Mojave desert on their motorbikes. Haunted by a devastating curse, Paulo is instructed by his mysterious spiritual master to embark upon a journey - to find and speak to his guardian angel in an attempt to confront and overcome his dark past.
The Valkyries is a compelling account of this forty day quest into the searing heat of the Mojave Desert, where Paulo and his wife, Chris, encounter the Valkyries - warrior women who travel the desert on motorcycles, spreading the word of angels. This exotic spiritual odyssey is a rare combination of truth, myth, imagination and inspiration.
Ultimately it is a story about being able to forgive our past and believe in our future.

Review by rayski
Coelho goes in search of his guardian angel, needs constant validation and is never satisfied.
Review by Micalhut
I'm a sucker for spiritual adventure lit. I use the term lit loosely, though I do like his masculine style of serving up a scene with no garnishments. Sucked it down in one evening over Dell Customer Support. Enjoy the term "second voice" for the ongoing conversations we have in our head when we're not even aware of it.
