Each one is amazingly transparent while at the same time quite mysterious. Individually they have personal struggles with being everything to everyone and to be brave and worthy of power or affection and belonging.
Walters' fascinating perceptions are grounded in research and shared from the heart in his precise control of dialogue. He has developed an amazing insight through his research and creativity. He has taken an appreciable stab at exposing these subconscious struggles that so many of us experience like shame, perfectionism, comparison and fear that can relate to our own vulnerabilities.
I loved how sincere and direct T.C. Walters' writing style is. I can tell he is very knowledgeable and comfortable with his subject and characters. For me, it was the perfect mix of confirmed research and liberated vision.
Walters unpacks perceptions such as the difference between happiness and joy and courage and heroics. The journey to a wholehearted life can be lawless, dedicated or a spiritual process,
This book has a strong plot and is very intriguing. You won't leave the book until the last page because there is always something that is happening and you need to know what is it. These villains and heroes, the helpless and innocent, the champions and conquerors…T.C Walters interweaves how they entangle through love, respect, indebtedness, or control and dominance?
Stirring and encouraging, this book is a game changer and in a category all its own. I am sure that this is one of those books that I will revisit. Excellent writing and significantly caught me by surprise.
“The Ancient Burden of Fear” had an abundance of suspense, mystery, action, romance, revelation and twists and turns that kept me reading.
The locations are also vividly described, But that all is just a set for the thrilling story about honor, true friendship, about love. About doing seemingly impossible things that become possible if you are not afraid to try very hard and not ever give up. In some way the principle of the book's story resembled me Tom Clancy's books, but much more refined, much more realistic much more human and with a real wisdom seasoning the whole package. The empathy of T.C. Walters is striking, you can clearly see, that he loves his characters, even the evil ones.
About the climax of the whole story, I knew what will probably happen. But the way the author did it blew my mind.
If you like thrilling adventurous books, this is the one you should not miss.
Walters has created a page-turner about debt repayment and the personal risks, challenges and fears encountered and faced, in order to move all of us towards a more “enlightened” way of life. There are raw Zen lessons to be learned as we travel with the intrigue.
Walters writes in a straight forward, no nonsense kind of way. He connects us with an intimate and with an almost, “peek through the crack in the door” view, of each of his well-developed characters.
There is wonderful tension and genuine connections between his heroes and villains as Walters unwinds the titillating plot to reveal a stunning climax.
“The Ancient Burden of Fear” is a fantastic opening to what will, hopefully, be a great literary career for Walters. Its fast pace makes for a real page-turner that you will not want to put down until the thrilling climax is finally revealed.
