If you are drawn to ancient teachings, the land of Egypt, or just a plain ol' great adventure, this book will draw you in, entertain and provoke a lot of thought along the way. The author obviously draws on her own experiences, study and research to convey a story that is esoterically rich. It is filled with well-drawn characters, sometimes larger than life and sometimes all too human, but always compelling.
Having never been to Egypt, I was particularly impressed with Crater's ability to take me there, from the chaos of the Cairo market to the past life recollection of a Karnak that no longer exists. I could feel it and smell it and hear it, and UNDER THE STONE PAW only makes me want to go there more than ever. This knack of being able to truly transport the reader is a gift for which I have particular admiration.
UNDER THE STONE PAW is an excellent read, and I found myself thinking it would make a terrific movie, to the point that I was actually casting it. Engaging, enjoyable and enlightening, I highly recommend this novel to anybody looking for a good read and an astral journey to amazing places!
