An unusual fairytale about love and consciousness, “Cassandra in the Mirror” is narrated in the quirky and poetic voice of Cassandra Morgante, who is part human and part stellar. She was born to fulfil a prophecy and help the evolution of humankind into a race of immortal angels. The story follows nineteen years of her life, from her student days in Edinburgh to adulthood in modern-day Ireland.
The years of her childhood, characterised by solitude and loss, are introduced peripherally. As a child, she was aloof and spent most of her time reading books and observing the world. Lord and Lady Hughes adopted her when she was eight, after her father abandoned her mother who later committed suicide.
In the face of adversity, Cassandra remains aware of her true origin and the mission she must fulfil. Her powers begin to manifest when she is in her twenties, much to the very human dismay of her ego. When her path crosses that of Oscar O’Leary, a spiritual artist and secret initiate into the mysteries of the Earth, her true adventure starts and a new humanity becomes possible.
The Ascended Masters are Cassandra’s powerful allies in her transformation into an eternal being. They live in the ethereal city of Shambhala and co-narrate her story. They know that she was chosen to introduce immortality to humankind. But many are sworn to stop this from happening. Mr Harker and the pharmaceutical giant Three-D are her main enemies. When her powers are almost fully fledged, Oscar falls prey to the Dark Side and deserts her. Cassandra becomes vulnerable to attacks from her opponents. The Masters’ Plan to turn the Earth into the Garden of Eden is in peril. Ultimately, only Oscar can help Cassandra achieve her mission. Will he?
