Review: The Re-Awakening by Carter Vance
The saga continues. He has returned, but not yet awakened to fulfill His destiny.
With The Re-Awakening, the second book of the Second Coming Series, author Carter Vance continues the thrilling story of the modern day return of Christ.
Like the first book, it is full of action and suspense that takes place in a chaotic world reeling towards the prophesied Apocalypse.
The first book, The Return, re-counted the circumstances of His birth. The Re-Awakening chronicles the events of His growth and the re-acquiring of His Christ Consciousness.
The first son in the bloodline of Jesus Christ, Lazarus J. Christos, must immerse Himself in the modern day world and prepare to fulfill His mission that has been prophesied for two thousand years.
With the aide of the order of the Knights Templars, long existing in the shadows, and the even less known organization of The Founders, young Lazarus, on a path of personal discovery, encounters His doubts and faces His fears of His ability to fulfill His mission.Meanwhile, His enemies mount their plan for His eradication and their goal of world domination. They believe there is a way for them to prevail beyond the prophecies. These Dark Forces embark upon a worldwide hunt for legendary artifacts of power that might tip the balance of power to their advantage for the forthcoming ultimate battle of good versus evil for the soul of humanity.
I received an ARC to give an honest review.
Wow there is a lot of details and information within this book not very much action like before. With Re-Awakening we follow Laz and his siblings as they are growing up a learning of the powers that they wield. They know they are to help Laz with this mission to bring peace and end evil but they do not fully know of the extend. We still have Regina who has now taken an apprentice and they are on the hunt for artifacts that hold power that their Sire wants. He is still determined to end Laz. We still do not know who this Sire his he is still a mystery man. Now there was a lot of repeating at times for example when Sire hangs up the phone with Regina he was done talking. Well yes we know this but you don't have to tell us. We also know that Regina never takes off her collar but yet we are told two or three times within the story.
Overall a good book you are going to be filled with a lot of information of places within in the book and it goes in good with the storyline. Evil has embarked on the world and everyone is slowly starting to see possibly the end of the world as it seems to be put. If you have not read book one The Return I suggest you read that first before you read this one. That way you can understand the characters and the storyline of Laz and his background.
The Templars play a role still but it didn't seem as much of a roll as in book one. It is like they are in the background of it all being as this is more of Laz's story.
With the way the ending was I wonder if there would be a book three in the works as I want to know does Sire and Laz ever meet up? Will Sire get all the artifacts that he was looking for. And will Laz bring down evil even though he isn't sure what exactly is evil's full intend.
