    An epic thriller of secrets, history and murder that will challenge how we think about who we are, and who we were. A bomb in Rome, a flash of bluish-white, and photojournalist Josh Ryder's world explodes. As Josh recovers, thoughts that have the emotion, the intensity, the "intimacy" of memories invade him. But they are not his. They are ancient...and violent with an urgency he cannot ignore--pulling him to save Sabina...and the treasures she protects. "But who is Sabina?" Desperate for answers, Josh turns to the Phoenix ... Show more

Reincarnation

by Raech on Oct 10, 2007

This is a mystery/suspense thriller on the subject of reincarnation and ancient religious practices. Its main character suffers intense flashbacks of memories not his own, from a life he comes to believe his spirit lived over 2,000 years before in ancient Rome. Seeking help from the Phoenix Foundation, an institution which studies and treats "past-life regression" in children, he becomes involved in a search for some ancient jewels rumored to hold a secret that can connect the past to the present. His search quickly becomes tangled with love, murder, secrecy, ancient mysteries and a kidnapping. I found it rather difficult to read this book. The story was told in a very disjointed fashion, with important background events explained at current moments in the plot, instead of being introduced earlier to build up to that point. As a result I felt disconnected from the characters, not really caring about what happened to them, because I didn't get any sense of why things were important to them, other than it was told to me. The book wound to an unsatisfying, abrupt close that left some unanswered questions. It was just a rather boring read for me. I have heard that this book is along similar lines to The Da Vinci Code, so I suppose it may appeal to readers who liked that book as well.

Ancient secrets are uncovered

by Quilldipper on Oct 3, 2007

Ancient secrets are uncovered and little by little the truth is revealed. If you have ever had a moment of wonder about reincarnation, about seeming to instantly know someone you?ve just met, I give you my highest recommendation for M.J. Rose?s book, ?The Reincarnationist.? It will call to you to read its pages until you?ve frantically gotten to the last. Josh Ryder survives a bomb?s explosion only to become haunted by flashes of someone else?s life. These flashes hit him as vividly as memories but seduce him with a desperate need for knowledge, a need to know just who lived these memories. After exhausting every medical approach to his turmoil, Josh discovers the Phoenix Foundation ? a research facility that scientifically documents cases of past life experiences in children. Josh becomes an understudy and soon understands that the flashes he goes through are experiences from his own past lives. Desperate to understand the feelings of despair and urgency he feels regarding those in his previous lives, he ends up in Rome, at the heart of his memories? settings. There he meets Professor Gabriella Chase who has just made a remarkable archaeological discovery ? the tomb of a Vestal Virgin, buried alive in approximately the year 390 A.D. So how does Josh know that the tomb is the resting place of a woman named Sabina, and that she was put to death for breaking her vow of celibacy? His sense of urgency to understand grows stronger and more intense with every clue he uncovers. There is something much greater at risk than his sanity though. In her death, Sabina held tight to a treasure that is said to unlock the mysteries of reincarnation, and it was stolen. Ironically, the cost of the treasure is valued in human lives. ?The Reincarnationist? is superbly written. It is fresh and compelling, creative and intellectual. This novel is a delightful mix of psychological thriller, suspense, and paranormal, and the writing is mesmerizing in its own right. With a plot that flows around the world and through a millennium of time, the excitement doesn?t stop until the book is reluctantly closed and completed. With sophistication and class, M.J. Rose offers a novel to be remembered.

Fascinating, fast paced thriller.

by lindacat on Oct 1, 2007

If you enjoy the DaVinci flavored novels you will love this tale of Josh Ryder's past life experiences as a priest in ancient Rome. Full of ancient secrets, murders and love that spans the centuries this is a winner not to miss.
