Waking God ~ Philip F. Harris and Brian Doe ~ Star Publish LLC~ Spiritual/Religious Thriller

And he agreed, and from Him was taken the Vessel, the Chalice, which was to contain all that was created. With this taking came the knowledge in the form of Wisdom, and from Wisdom they went forth and multiplied. When It saw what had happened, It said “This is good.” And It placed a fiery pillar before this place of rest that none should disturb the slumber. If he awoke, all creation would thus end and Wisdom would be lost. Being the seventh day, it rested.

He closed the journal, not bothering to read the words he’d written. He knew the idea by now, was familiar with the message, though he comprehended none of it beyond an academic capacity. He only needed to find some way to understand why it was happening, and what in God’s name it had to do with him.

When I first began to read this book, I was actually reading 3 other books. Being a reviewer, I tend to do that a lot. I had put the book down and discovered my 18 year old daughter had taken it and had begun to read it. We both LOVE this book. I like that for once, someone has had the kahuna’s for lack of a better term to make people really think about life, their beliefs, where and how we came to be, etc. This book takes you on such a journey…the future, the Garden of Eden and every where in between. I generally get bored of books with great detail but with this one, I soaked up the information as quickly as I could read it. The non-human characters in this book were so vividly explained that I could see them and unlike in other books I have read, I actually connected with the non-human characters in this story. Their appearances aren’t just detailed but their personalities are allowed to come to light. I love that. I think I finally found two authors who won’t hesitate to say out loud what the rest of us are thinking. Kudo’s to them both. Can’t wait for the next two! I was asked to add more to this review and after some time of thinking about and going back and rereading some parts, I agree that this is a Spiritual/Religious thriller. I say this because at times, from one chapter to the next, you are taken to so many places and while that may sound confusing to some, I assure it is not. I think for some, they will get this book right away. I LOVE that someone had taken the steps to delve into the unknown and to bring their thoughts and beliefs on paper. I believe that when this trilogy is complete, it won’t be long before we see a movie(s) coming forth. I know that I sure would love to see it on film. OH! I forgot to add, and not to frighten anyone. Thus far, several people that have read this book have had bizarre events occur to them. None life threatening, but definately bizarres events. Have we been taken closer to the truth then the Universe wants us to? We shall see. Read it for yourself.
