Interesting material. This book describes what is considered old doctrine but really it's what was meant to be that has been lost through time. Some of the wording - the thees and thous - could be updated to modern language which would make it easier to take in what it is trying to convey. I am a christian who has somewhat lost my way but if what this book teaches could help many to understand what is meant to be and would encourage those like me that are turned off by the current church hypocrisy. I would recommend this book to those who want to understand the first teachings and learn.

If you had the chance to live forever, would you take it? It's 2053: An old man, Viktor Erikson, lies on his deathbed. Alone and with no known relatives, he is tended to by Olivia, a nurse. He has only one request: that she reads to him. The request is not unusual, but the battered, leather-bound tome she must read is no ordinary book. Written in 1839, it chronicles the discovery of the fountain of youth by Morgana de la Motte - and Viktor Erikson.

I had to restart this book after the first couple of chapters because I didn't understand what was going on. I'm so glad I did. This is a very different story about the fountain of youth and immortality. The characters are able to start life over again and again but they have all of their memories intact. Very interesting. the narration was excellent. I loved it and I will absolutely read other books by this author. I would absolutely recommend this book.

I didn't realize that this book was basically a historical explanation of how Thoth Hermes Trismegistus was connected to our cultures of today. It kept my attention and was very interesting. The narration was well done. I will now do more research on how Trismegistus is relatable to our culture today. Very interesting history primer.

This is the first book I've read from this author. It was a pleasure to listen to and I would recommend it to anyone who prefers to read Christian related books but also for anyone as it is a historical romance novel as well. The story is well written and all of the narration was great - except the voice for Heathar, which was jarring compared to the rest of the narration - but that did not change my recommendation. This book was easy to listen to and it kept my attention so that I 'read' it in one day.

Another excellent time travel story from John Heldt. Part 2 of Carson Chronicles is written well and the narration was excellent. I have 'read' (listened) to all of Heldt's time travel books and they draw you in and am left wanting the next book to continue the story of the Carson family traveling through time. After the Carson parents get stuck in time their 5 children discover what has happened to their parents and they go through a portal to the past to find them. The family story continues with book 3 and it can’t come soon enough. Absolutely recommended.
