My name is Mary Fallon and I came to Egypt a few weeks ago, fulfilling a lifelong dream. I was also visiting my best friend, Carol, who had magically scored a job photographing tombs in the desert. So many intense things have happened since I arrived, time has flown by and my tourist visa is about to expire.
But I have no intention of leaving Cairo, where I've fallen in love with an archaeologist, and with another man who lived over 2000 years ago, but that doesn't matter, because he also happens to be God.
My new boyfriend is already making plans for me to stay. Meanwhile, he's treating me to a cruise down the Nile, during which I'm discovering that something ancient still walks among us, a seductive enemy who enjoys playing with my most thrilling dreams and desires. But the cost of fantasies becoming reality might be what I truly want from life. The problem is that my body cares only for the present, and possesses a dangerously hungry will of its own.
Author's note: The books in this series are based on real dreams and events. People and circumstances are fictionalized, but the experiences are all true to life. Mary's dreams are actual dreams I have had, and the dreams of other characters in the story were contributed by other lucid dreamers.
I've never had a lucid dream, but I was witness to a shared one. When my kids were small they had a very hard time falling asleep, so I would go in and read to them until they would zone out and close their eyes. Sometimes, this took hours. Occasionally, on a bad night my wife would come in and snuggle up with one of the boys and fall asleep with them. I would, after all parties were in la la land, have to wait a few minutes or the slightest sound would rouse the children back to alertness. I had waited a good ten minutes before I made my way to leave the room when both my wife and son jumped up and shouted, simultaneously, "look out for that fish!" It turned out that they were both dreamng they were fishing together and had caught a large fish and when they pulled it in to get it, it jumped towards their faces from the net, prompting them to yell and wake up. They both could tell me what happened in the dream, and I had seen and heard them both say the same thing at the same time from a dead sleep. So, I know thatLucid dreaming is not only possible, but also real.
That being said, I know that much of these books are based off of actual experiences that the author, Pita, has had. As I said in my first review, her writing is so vivid and real that she had to have been to the places she had written about. Again, her descriptions of places, people, and events leaves no doubt that her own experiences are guiding this writing. I had also said that this type of book is not my preferred reading. I am more of a bang up, explodey, swords & sorcery, weird kind of reader. I really don't do romance, unless the guy is having a love affair with his gun or sword, but I really enjoyed the first book. Enough so that here I am reviewing the second.
The spirituality in this book is palpable, and hopefully you will pick up on the messages Pita is putting out. She narrates this as well as having written it, and so it makes the book all that much more moving, meaningful, and real. You can empathsize with the character, and feel everything she does. When you are done you will feel like you have tken a long spiritual journey, and end up doing some inner reflection. This is a good thing. Also, the book has a great story, lovable characters, and an interesting plot (so that might help motivate you to get this book). Even though I did receive a promo code for this review it in no way influenced my considerations of the material, and in fact, inspired me to be more honest. In fact, getting a code generally makes me harsher as a reviewer as I am more often concerned what someone like Me will decide based on my review.

Once again the story continues, with more insight into Lucid Dreams and it's way of bringing those who experience it closer to our Lord and Savior in this modern world of many deceits and evil. Mary is lucky to have Steve around and help guide her to the right path without being judgemental. This story keeps you entertained and wanting to know what will happen next. A must listen to or read, your choice. You will not be disappointed.
