Graham Hancock has spent decades researching and writing some of the most ambitious and successful nonfiction investigations into ancient civilizations and wisdom. Entangled uses all of Hancock's skills and knowledge to propel a fantasy adventure like nothing else preceding it. This is a time-slip novel, alternating between present-day California, Brazil, and prehistoric Spain, with two teenage female protagonists who must come together to avert an incredibly bloodthirsty takeover of the human race.
Entangled is the first book in a trilogy relating the story of an unrelentingly evil master magician named Sulpa who is on the loose and determined to destroy humanity. Leoni, a troubled teen from modern-day Los Angeles, and Ria, a young woman who lives in Stone Age Spain, meet in a parallel dimension outside the flow of time to stop Sulpa's spectacular, deadly materialization in the modern world. Riding a growing wave of interest in parallel dimensions and imaginary worlds (The Lord of the Rings, The Chronicles of Narnia, and The Golden Compass are recent Hollywood examples), Entangled will have immediate appeal to readers and listeners of Philip Pullman, Stephen King, Neil Gaiman,and Kate Mosse, among others.
But Entangled has the added merit of being grounded in solid anthropological and scientific research. Hancock calls on his years of research into cutting-edge issues, including the "Neanderthal enigma", the nature of consciousness, the many-worlds interpretation of quantum physics, parallel realms, time travel, and near-death and out-of-body experiences.

It's a wild ride unlike any you've ever been on. If you are interested in any theories of alternative history, psychedelic drugs, angels, demons or anything like that you will love this book.
Gripping, Couldn't wait to get back in to the book every time I had to stop. Very unique way to present the possibilities of the past. Way to go Mr. Hancock!
The graphic war scenes.
I enjoy the non-fiction writings of Graham Hancock, and the ideas explored in this work of fiction are similarly interesting: time entanglement, targeted genetic mutation in the distant past giving rise to current humans, and the use of psychedelics to contact extra-dimensional life. Unfortunately, this book contained not one but many extended and detailed rape scenes, as well as graphic descriptions of torture and violence, which made this audiobook more something to be endured than to be enjoyed. Leaves it hanging at the end for a sequel, but I won't be listening.
the verbaige used by the Neanderthal girl..... " F**k this" and "F**K that" added nothing to the story line and was distracting.
Drop the 20th century vulgar terms.
yes, the overall premise was interesting, but quite frankly I did not finish the book.
I have enjoyed Graham's books about Egypt and ancient cultures.
