I found this story to be very compelling. I loved the concept, and the spiritual message within the story. It resinated with me. The three things that kept me from giving this a 5 * were:
1. There were too many grammatical errors that pulled me away from the story. i.e. passed instead of past, commas and apostrophes out of place.
2. The jumping back and forth between characters was a bit confusing.
3. I felt there wasn't a complete ending. I could understand stopping in mid action if this were the first of a trilogy. But as it sits, I feel like the ending could be a lot stronger.
On a positive note, my favorite character was Charles and felt Ms. Michael captured his thoughts and personality perfectly. All in all, I enjoyed the story very much and I will certainly keep my eye out for more books from this author.
Meanwhile Serenity is having her own problems with Jack becoming more distant, her hands constantly burning, and her belief that she is slowly losing her mind because her son is communicating with her telepathically. Her son communicated to her that she needed to find a psychic healer name Sophia to help her. The problem? Sophia is associated with a group that the government considers to be a terrorist organization called the Unity for Oneness movement. Jack works for the Senator who was to eliminate this organization at all cost.
In Serenity's effort to find Sophia she discovers that everything she knows to be true about herself and her family is not what it seems. Serenity realizes that a group within the FBI is looking for her and her son to arrest and or kill them. Why? Because secretly that group are also members of a group called the Brothers of Darkness. Later she discovers that her son is not a normal human being but a Child of Light who mission is the elevate the consciousness of the human race to the next level of evolution.
This story a paranormal fictional tale that encompasses elements of spirituality, psychic phenomena, and ancient Egyptian mythology. I love the plot and the overall story itself. It was in-depth and insightful in teaching spiritual truths. You really get to develop a sincere interest in the characters and the plot itself which is a strong fascinating story.
What I did not like about the story was that it was told in so many points of view. You had Serenity point of view, then Charlie, then Jack, then Sophia, then Richard the senator, then the Shawn Shelton FBI agent, and Nicole Shawn's wife. To me it made it much more difficult to follow the story although I understood using Charlie's point of view because he was autistic.
Serenity and Jack Renkin differ in political beliefs and background, but Charlie, their autistic child, is a welcomed addition. He can make the average person reconsider how he or she evaluates those who may appear different at first glance. When Charlie first telepathically connects with his mother, by thinking what he wants to tell her, their loving bond makes room for his protective strengths. It became easy to find myself devouring each chapter, while waiting to discover how the little boy would hand his family the next set of important clues and warnings, and who the author would introduce next.
JJ Michael kept my imagination engaged through every phase of this intricate chess game. From the first page, her descriptive, crisp writing drove me to root for the Rankin family. I highly recommend this novel that left me wanting more until the end. Bravo, JJ Michael, for offering something refreshing and unique.
