Review by Abby L Vandiver (Smashwords) A gripping tale of despair, hope and an unlikely friendship that is forged through transmitted thoughts sent thousands of miles away and bound though faith. It mixes real life facts with fictional characters bringing them to life. A most enjoyable read. You won't want to put it down. Review by Bob Craton (Goodreads) This is a fantasy for adults combining the real world and 'magic' in the form of characters with telepathic ability. It's a marvelous example of the 'magical realism' genre. I highly recommend it. Review by Marianne VonFeldt Oxenhorn (Smashwords) Great book club book. Just reviewed it with my book club and everyone gave it a big thumbs up!

Science fiction and fantasy are not my favorite genres. There are few books that can grab me in either of these styles. Since this book was a mixture of both I was a bit skeptical. Also the mention that it was an interactive book threw me a bit. First I never noticed where I was supposed to interact. Perhaps my kindle isn't updated enough or this was left out of my version.
The research seemed to be very thorough. The characters were believable and very well written. But I just couldn't connect with the book. Perhaps if the subject matter had been different I might have connected better. If you are a science fiction or fantasy fan, or would love to read about the oil industry, or about Nigeria you will probably really enjoy this book. It just wasn't for me.
I received this book free of charge in exchange for my honest review.
I read this 300+ page book in 3 days, while attending numerous wedding related functions out of state. Once I started it I couldn't put it down. Well, I did, to attend said events, but I couldn't wait to get back to it and read at every opportunity. Wow! I was amazed at how real the characters became to me and, although the ending was TOTALLY satisfying, I hated to see it end. I will be purchasing the next book in the series tonight so I can see what else is in store for the family.
The incorporation of web links into the ebook is ingenious and I appreciated the additional information. I found the story to be well researched, incorporating interesting facts into the storyline that helped fill in the arc of the story and fleshed out the characters. By the end, I wanted to be a part of "One"! It was also very gratifying to have the little bits and pieces come together so cohesively. Often, in a book of this length and complexity, the author leaves a piece unaccounted for... Not int this case! Most satisfying!
How wonderful it would be if Lola's vision for humanity could come to pass! Thank you, Sherrie, for a wonderful story!
