Famed actor, Holmes Osborne (The Box, ER, Boston Legal, The X Files), wrote: 'With the suspense of a "Da Vinci Code," the spiritual awareness of "The Secret," and the fearsome aspect of Orwell's "1984,"' 2012 The Awakening will make a great film!" A global human awakening shakes the foundations of powers that have ruled the world for eons. The heroes' struggle to envision a new way of being will determine their survival. Can they? Can we? An unlikely bookish heroine, a burnt out Naval Intelligence officer, and a deadly covert operations professional's lives become entwined in this spellbinding thriller - unraveling threads of the ancient beginnings of human consciousness. Their struggle reflects that of every human being on the planet today. Current global issues are woven elegantly into a timeless saga that draws upon ancient texts and human history, aboriginal, Eastern and Western religious scriptures, and cutting edge scientific insights into the mechanism of human consciousness. Blending history, science, socio-politics, and transcendental spirituality, this cutting edge tale of vision and intrigue will leave you breathless, riveted, and reeling.
