From the Author
What if we found a completely accurate history of our beginnings, an unbiased record that was not passed down verbally, not reimagined in every telling?
I looked at creation myths of many cultures, located the first feminine archetype, and found scholarly writings that I used as an energy source for every writer's favorite question: What If?

As it relates to the novel's structure, I found Mr. Baldwin's writing very accomplished, but inconsistent. For example, I disliked his technique of changing writing styles during chapter transitions. One chapter would demonstrate a grammatically skilled writing structure with proper sentence and paragraph format, and another chapter improperly used a style of incomplete sentence structure (i.e. phrases) probably to illustrate random thoughts or experiences. Some chapters inconsistently combined, most likely intentionally, past and present tense, and the author's attempt to render artistic prose, in many cases, simply caused confusion about what was really occurring. In addition, images would abruptly appear in the narrative of the novel for no apparent reason, as if the writer simply determined something weird would be nice to include at this point (i.e. a snake in a tree suddenly appeared). Finally, I didn’t appreciate the writer’s technique of obfuscation (i.e. confusing language) in writing some text messages, acronyms, and phrases that the normal reader would be unable to interpret. Was the purpose to illustrate the author’s intelligence, or to simply mock the reader?
Finally, I hoped this novel would offer a more positive and technological vision of the future rather than ultimately submerging itself into the same metaphysical dreamland offered up by many other "science fiction" writers of today. Personally, I feel that many of the philosophies Mr. Baldwin shared in this novel were ridiculous nonsense, but if they had been expressed more plainly and convincingly, I may have taken them more seriously. Rather, I feel that the author simply wasted his time and mine.
I always thought the Akashic Record was in the Van Allen Belts, but that's not my only notion that was changed by the essence of the story. Intuitively, I understand and believe many of the ideas in the book - we are part of everything around us, we are cared for by a higher intelligence - and because (we find out) our fate is not sealed, we can "achieve all the things you ask" for.
How to describe this book? There are way too many layers! It is set in current times for the most part, at the Pentagon and other US locations. The heroine, Tharcia, reads out a spell that ultimately changes the world. I don't want to say anything more, except that I would definitely recommend it.
Results: A fantastic novel! And it was a freebie. Read it.

Next History: The Girl Who Hacked Tomorrow *did* blow me away.A superb piece of work IMHO.Well-paced, thought-provoking and hard to put down.The characters are well drawn and believable, the plot rivetting.I enjoyed the style of writing and am now looking for other books by the author.
Apologies if the review isn't wordy enough....just download the book and enjoy it.
Ich habe das Buch in einer kostenlosen Aktion erhalten, konnte mich jedoch mit dem Schreibstil nicht anfreunden und auch nicht in die Story eintauchen - es war einfach nur mühsam.
Deswegen habe ich das Buch - und das geschieht wirklich nur sehr sehr selten - nicht zu Ende gelesen und gelöscht.
Ich kann daher den großen Rest des Buches nicht beurteilen und vergebe deswegen 3 Sterne - vielleicht wäre es ja am Ende des Buches besser geworden ? Aber bis dahin konnte und wollte ich mich nicht durchkämpfen.
