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.

I stopped in the third chapter when there was descriptive acts of child rape - I cannot abide this crap
Entangled is a great narrative, extremely engaging. I commend Graham on his wonderful story. It opens for the reader another world seen by only a few. I commend Khristine on a powerful reading. It conveyed emotion and suspense superbly. I'm left suspended with a story that has no end. We take the story forward... and backward. Thank You
Everything about this book was great! The narrator did a superb job. I was easily able to distinguish the different characters, her voice was pleasant to listen to and my interest was kept through the entire book. All of the characters were interesting and likable. I plan to seek for other Graham Hancock books.
Right now at this time in my life I am just a really captivated by the idea and stories regarding our alternative origins as human beings. Also the fact that I'm familiar with Hancock and his work, and chose to read this book because it was a novel and he used his life's research in a fiction based story format. The narrator; well – I don't think there's anybody that could have done it any better she was absolutely awesome, spot on. She WAS each individual character... Bravo!!
– Both of the girls I'd say. I like the passion of the girl from the past but I could relate more to the girl from current time
I may have teared up a time or 2 but for the most part the extreme reaction was just constant captivation
Yeah – I was very upset to see that Graham Hancock's newest book, and if I understand correctly is also as a novel, is in pre-order status. I WANT IT RIGHT NOW!!
Hancock does a great job of incorporating his knowledge of ancient history and shamanic cultures with fantasy in this story. At times the story seems a little overworked but all in all it was an engaging listen and when it came to it's abrupt cliffhanger ending I immediately looked up the sequel (which is unfortunately not available on Audible). If and when the sequel is released on Audible I will definitely purchase it and see where the story leads.
