INCARNATION: A Novel ~Laura Davis Hays
Are you ready for a fascinating read? Do you like to think and figure out what is going on in a story? How is your intuition? How do you feel about the environment and science? Do we have one life or do we come back many times? Do we have a task to complete while we reside here on earth?
The INCARNATION keeps asking those questions and it truly made my brainwork and stop to contemplate and sort. This book is a good mental workout and at the same times an interesting and provocative story that includes science and archeology, nightmares and psychology, abusive behavior and loving kindness. A great many characters and different locations and scenes keep the reader on their toes and alert to what is happening in the story.
TLC Book Tours sent me PDF copy of this book for review. I used a pencil and paper to make notes and form a timeline and compare dream sequences and contemporary story lines. A very interesting read, which would not be hurried.
The characters in the dream sections are from Atlantis, which is just very interesting on its own. Iriel, Gewil, and Jarad take us through this story and introduce us to Muamdi, the Grandmother and “Chrystal – minde “
Kelsey, Sam, and Harrison are the contemporary incarnation of the Atlantis characters. As confusing as the story line began in the “white” world and all the “control” issues it was worth it to sort and assess the interconnection and where the outcome was leading. Kelsey and Harrison are scientists working on an organism which would clean up oil spills and the like in the ocean, hopefully not damaging the sea life. This is about saving the world and keeping the earth moving forward and surviving human flaws and contrary actions – greed.
I liked the adventure in the story and the Metaphysical, supernatural references and the revealing treatment of contemporary women-not much has changes throughout history. “Tested in life-or-death struggle, Kelsey must face an ordeal she can survive only through great courage and deep karmic understanding.” (Cover)
This book is very hard to put down, a compelling read and quite the adventurous thriller. One will want to read every word and then maybe pick it up and read it again.
