In this fast-moving thriller, Clay Barton and Shali Faisal are seeking ancient documents hidden since the beginning of recorded time–documents that could forever change the course of human history. By using CIA parapsychology techniques for past life regression, they finally locate this treasure trove of ancient knowledge, but not before a harrowing journey that takes them around the world. Now is the time to reveal the secrets, but a dangerous and unknown force is trying to stop their efforts. This thought-provoking thriller may make you think about the world and events in a new and disturbing way.
I’ve been interested in this book and books like it because I have always been interested in the way the human mind works. I mean seriously the things people can come up with in their brains or actions people take part in always boggle the mind when you break it down to the psychology. Even with my fascination with psychology I know very little about the idea of past life regression, and I find the idea intriguing and really an interesting twist to write a story about. I think one of the main things I appreciated about the book was that I learned a lot about things just throughout the course of reading the book. I think the author spent a lot of time with research, or worked in some kind of field similar to the subject matter in the book in order to be able to so eloquently “talk” to the reader in a way that was both easy to understand as well as easy to pick up and learn. 
I think the premise of the book over all is a fairly interesting one, I mean they are looking for specific documents and the way they go about looking for them is through sessions about people’s past lives. It’s not a common theme in books, so you have to give the author a lot of props for the originality alone. If you think about all the books you have read where people are looking for an object or for something in general it reads more like a cop novel, and to me this did not have this feel. 
I also want to mention the skill in the writing itself. I find books with a lot of dialogue in it often doesn’t give the reader enough information. There is something to be said for being able to read a book that is primarily coming from within a character’s head, it not only gives you insight into the character but as well as the surroundings. Of course dialogue is always important, especially in progressing the plot, but when it’s too dialogue heavy sometimes as a reader you don’t feel like you are getting enough information. This is certainly not the case with this book, and I appreciate the skill level that took on the authors part. 
Although I was not entirely sure what to expect when I started this book it was really a quality book. I was impressed by not only the level of knowledge and research, but also in the skill of the writing. Another thing that impressed me is how I could easily see how this book would appeal to people who like all different kinds of genres. I could see a person who enjoyed thrillers, sci-fi, fantasy, crime books, and a lot of others kinds enjoying this book. So basically if you are someone who visits my site regularly I think this book would be appealing to you based on that fact alone.
