Chronicles of the Enchanted Vanguard: Seraphina and the Divine Mandate by Mr. Luminescence Goh takes us on an epic quest to save the world from dark forces. 


Chronicles of the Enchanted Vanguard: Seraphina and the Divine Mandate is an epic adventure penned by Mr. Luminescence Goh. In this book, we follow Seraphina, Finnegan, Lyra, Lieutenant Victor, and their team as they journey through deep forests, high mountains, vast oceans, ancient ruins, and mysterious temples in their quest to save the world from the forces of darkness. 

Finnegan is just an ordinary young man who comes across an extraordinary crystal while on Pulau Ubin Island. From then, his life takes a special turn. He befriends Seraphina, the beautiful yet mysterious girl he had a liking toward for a long time. Seraphina opens a world of magic to him. Soon after, a solar storm plunges the world into darkness. No country on Earth has access to electricity. Dragons, elves, mutants, mages, sirens, and ferocious animals, among other dark creatures, destroy everything in their path. 

Will Finnegan, along with Seraphina and their new friends, be able to defeat the evil forces and bring back normalcy on Earth? 

Luminescence Goh is a master world builder. He seamlessly integrates fantasy with real-world scenarios. His world is full of magical creatures. These creatures are well-developed. It is very evident that Goh did a lot of research while creating them. They are portrayed in such a detailed manner that I could actually visualize them. Also, I love how he draws inspiration from Greek, Roman, and other Old World mythology. Goh also sheds light on the environmental issues that we are experiencing today. From overpopulation to pollution, he touches on all the relevant topics. Mr. Luminescence Goh’s writing style is very vivid. The way he sketched the battle scenes made me feel goosebumps. It is evident that he drew on his experiences from his time in the Navy. 

Chronicles of the Enchanted Vanguard: Seraphina and the Divine Mandate not only tells a captivating tale but also teaches us a lot of life lessons. Through the story of Seraphina, Finnegan, Lyra, and their friends, Goh underlines the importance of unity, perseverance, love, and strength. He also depicts the power of acceptance, redemption, and sacrifice. 

The characters in the novel are quite well-developed as well. It was a treat seeing Finnegan grow from a naive boy to a resilient young man. Seraphina had my heart. She was willing to do anything to help those in need. I was truly astonished when her true identity was revealed. Lyra was a brave girl. Lieutenant Victor and his team were strong individuals who selflessly did everything to save their homeland. I learned a lot from Leonardo’s character arc. The Oakheart elves, Lysandra, and Ezekiel imparted a number of values. 

In the end, the author provides a detailed character guide, chronology, location descriptions, and a thorough explanation of the magical objects and spells. He also includes a number of questions for a thorough discussion of the book. I believe all this makes the book all the more special. 

I have to mention that there are a number of errors and a tad bit of redundancy in the book. I am confident that a round of editing will easily fix this. 

Overall, Mr. Luminescence Goh’s Chronicles of the Enchanted Vanguard: Seraphina and the Divine Mandate is a supremely captivating novel. Consisting of 365 pages and thirteen chapters, the book manages to hold the reader’s attention till the end. I highly recommend it to fans of fantasy novels and adventure stories.

Reading is my passion, and writing is my compulsion. I started reading from a very early age. Since then, I have not stopped. I have garnered this addiction from my father. I have always loved reading his books. As you can see, books are my world. I escape this world to traverse the world of my books. Naturally, I have an affinity to create worlds of my own. There are thoughts constantly swirling in my head. These are the thoughts that I jot down. Sometimes, they become poems while sometimes stories. More often than not, they are just reviews of the plethora of books I read and the things I do.

  1. I really appreciate it when the authors are thorough in providing additional resources, such as the character guide, to better help us understand the world they’ve built. Character guides were super common, for example, in Agatha Christie’s books, and somewhere down the line they disappeared…

  2. Thank you for reviewing my book and highlight what are the thing to be improved. I like the way you explained an easy to understand. good job
