5.0 out of 5 stars The last book of an amazing trilogy!, December 15, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Revelation of the Sands is the last of a trilogy, and it ends as fantastically as it began.
My love for ancient Egypt added to my excitement as I read page after page, trying to savor each event that started in Secrets in the Sands, the first of the trilogy.
Our primary characters, Alexandria Logan and Mitch Carver return, as well as their two friends, Jack and Bob.
They are going for their doctorates and have a horrid prof heading their dig site near Giza.
Alex trips over a box that was well into the sands--ancient and fascinating. Alex and Mitch hide this find from the prof and with the help of Jack and Bob, the forensics part of the group, they discover the box with ancient scrolls, housed in tubes topped with stoppers of an unknown alloy.

They feel the power of the box and its contents. It's power is beyond anything ever imagined by an ancient culture.
Alex and Mitch, through the scrolls, discover the Kierani, an ancient Egyptian culture, about 12,000 yrs ago. They see the object of power is called a Pharum, and there is also a Sun Disk made of the same unknown alloy.
The young people get their doctorates, but their prof tries to stop any way they can dig in Egypt. He is thwarted by a Dr. Kadesh and his son, Khamir. As a matter of fact, they have opened the way with excavation permits!

The story switches from ancient times, with the Kierani and their king and queen, Traeus and Axianna, along with their twins Anjia and Tramen.
Traeus and his scientific groups have created The Pharum, an object that is to be used for the good of mankind; however, misused, is a force of great destruction.
It is amazing how Ms. Aren tells the stories of ancient and present plots seamlessly showing us the big picture of a beautiful, peaceful people, who have people wanting power, but not fully understanding it, and the young people unfolding the story and discovering it's amazing sophistication, and the present as the Egyptologists help unveil this story.

There are setbacks, with people who want to stop Alex and Mitch, but the Egyptologists slowly release the whole picture of the Pharum and the Sun Disc.

It is an exciting book that could be a stand alone book to read, but I went back and reread the two previous books and they were as excellent as this last jewel.

Beautifully written, you feel you are there with the characters, past and present. You care for them and what this device truly means.

Rai Aren brings Ancient Egypt to life and transports us the reader through every amazing part of this book.

The Revelation of the Sands is a book you hate to see end, yet you are excited for the characters and events.

An excellent book (series) from an excellent knowledgeable author, Rai Aren.
A must for fans of Ancient Egypt and mystery and fine story telling.

It's a wow.

5.0 out of 5 stars An magical and exciting story of of a legendary hero, November 24, 2015
Klaus, Defender of Children, by Earl Chessher, is a fantasy for the basis of a legend.
It is exactly what it says: a Fantasy and a Thriller.
Something for everyone. Beautifully written, the cover looks like it is a fantasy of a young man, strong, being through much unhappiness.
But this young man, Klaus, evolves into a champion of good and helping children by doing kindnesses for everyone, without sacrificing his strength.
Sacrifices and kindnesses; heartache and soaring love, this book unfolds a legend that will never die.
Ellen George, author of the children's book, Flutterby; part of a short story anthology, and featured poetry in various anthologies.

5.0 out of 5 stars What can you say about a genius and his latest book?, May 8, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I have often compared Greg Iles to be our generation's Faulkner. And man can this gentleman write!!!
The Bone Tree is the latest of the Penn Cage saga, that started with one on my favorite books, The Quiet Game.
The way Mr. Iles has weaved us the modern South which may or may not have made strides in the progress of equal rights, evil organizations, and the machinations of family is nothing short of brilliant--
The Cage family is local royalty. Dr. Cage and his family have helped many and in his office, he treated black and white alike.
Penn Cage and his daughter come home after his wife's death to start a new life.
You really have to start from The Quiet Game to fully understand the good, bad and the ugly.
The Bone Tree is the latest in the series.
The more Cage books, the longer they get as the information is so amazing.
This is an 800 page book.
I have a Kindle and ordered it, but my router died so I got the hard copy.
Most of the story needs the explanation and pages fly by.
You will come to see there is no black or white but shades of grey.
And oh my, the writing is brilliant.
You will run the gamut of emotions reading The Bone Tree. I reread the latter pages many times to let things sink in.

There is one more in the Penn Cage book series and cannot wait. To cry, to read with my mouth opened in amazement, to let this family and story sink in, in words of prose that read like poetry. The impact sometimes hitting you in the gut, and realizing your family has done both good and bad and created a chain of events even they couldn't have imagine.
Mr. Iles has been through a lot, and for the good is newly married, but how he can write!!!!!
I am ashamed I have been writing my novel for three years but there are reasons for that.. If only my words touch people, I'll do a jig.

If you want brilliance, choose Greg Iles every time. You will not regret any page read.
Mr. Iles, I hope one day to meet you at a signing to shake the hand of one of the best writers of our time.
If you are up to date in the Cage saga, read The Bone Tree. It will change you in many ways.
This is how to write classics that will last forever...
Bravo, Greg Iles.

5.0 out of 5 stars The possibilities are there to make this diet fit you -- but you have to start, January 20, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Maybe works for a man to fast and then go to the gym,but a woman with kids a heavy home,shuttling kids here or there, it didn't click. Until folks who really went through this program gave me the encouragement that you don't need a gym, you can do jumping jacks, etc just to keep moving while doing this unusual diet.
I am in process of changing my review due to Josh's feedback, and the wonderful author's encouragement I change my review to this may be doable and I will reread and plan and do it.
Work in process! Keep Ya posted!
