Publisher's Summary

My name is Mary Fallon, I'm 18 years old, and a few months ago, I came to Egypt to visit my best friend Carol. As it turns out, I never left, because I fell in love with a young archaeologist, and with God, whose immense love I first experienced in a dream when I took a nap in an ancient tomb. 

I can hardly believe I'm an Egyptologist's Admin now, living luxuriously by myself in an apartment on loan to my boss by the mysterious Matthew J. Waters while he's away in Europe. Being in Cairo is thrilling, but I'm also beginning to realize how dangerous it can be. My lucid dreams are intensifying, and they seem to be making me more lucid in my waking life as well because I'm rationally questioning concepts I always took for granted, reincarnation for example. 

Carol is expecting a baby, while I'm expecting and hoping Stephano Guardini will soon be more than just my boyfriend. The only problem is that Owen, a beautiful and sinister lucid dreamer, can't seem to take no for an answer.

Light and Breath/Life and Death

Maria Isabel Pita really suckered me pretty good with this series. I thought her first book, the Spirit of Imhotep, was a "mummy" tale. You know, kid goes to Egypt, heads into a pyramid, wakes up some slumbering monster and all heck breaks lose. That was not the book at all. Nope. But I still listened to it, because, darn her, she writes an interesting story. She writes from her spirit, you really feel that as you listen to the narration that she does. Yes, she is also a double threat, writing and narrating her own book. It was pretty apparent to me that Pita was telling her own story, at least I had suspicions because everything she said had an air of honesty and realness to it.

You may not realize this, but like I said, I expected the first book to be about a mummy, which means that I am a horror junkie. I love action; blood and gore must be in my tales to keep my attention. At the very least I need an elf, a sword, or an alien to keep me happy. FYI, neither of the first two books in this series have any of those. Yep. I got the second one, too. Something about Pita, and her spirituality really struck home for me. Now, you find me with her third book in this journey in my metaphorical hand (it's really on my iphone). So, why would a guy who is an action hound read a spiritual romantic story that has deep religious/spiritual aspects to it? Because Pita's semi-autobiographical story really moves you. Even I, a manly man, was touched deeply by this journey. This is not an action tale, but the story of how one woman discovers who she is and where she fits in this world. It is a story of awakenings, almost like she was sleepwalking through her life until ge was touched by christianity.

The lucid dreaming aspects are relevant to my life, as I have seen one occur right in front of me with my wife and kid, so even as far fetched as sone of you may find this aspect it is real. I find Pita's voice calming and soothing, which is the tone of this book. It is a healing tome.

In spite of the lack of a bad guy needing beaten up, or a natural disaster wiping out most of humanity I have been lucky to have found a series like this. I'd like to think that on some deeper level I have changed a little for the better, and have a stronger faith and that my spirituality has grown more than I realize. There are levels to this book, and the rest of the series that you will have to really focus on to get the pay out on a concious level. I really am sorry to see this story end. I could not ask for more from a book, a series, or a writer.

Except, maybe she could write a mummy story now.

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.

Mary'sspirital adventure in Eygpt continues. She is now engaged to her beloved Steve, her friend Carol is expecting a baby. But life in Eygpt isn't easy, she still worries about her friend who was kidnapped and when Carol's husband Adam is hurt at one of his digs, things seem bleak. But her faith in God brings her through it and in the end, all is right. Maria, once again did a fabulous job telling a story of hope and faith. Each book in this series leaves you wanting for more and am sure the next book will keep you captivated at the adventure of this young girl.
