I am a forever fan of Ms. Womack.
The way she wound the different lives of these people together is simply amazing. I admit, it gets a little confusing following the past lives of the 2 main characters and how they all came together to be the 2 main characters. at the end.
The book begins in the present and travels as far back as 10,000bc. There are many stops along the way in all different parts of the world. There are some whopping surprises in connecting Bryan and Linz's life. They made my jaw drop because Ms. Womack did a wonderful job making me, the reader, question who is who!
Over the course of the novel, Bryan tries to convince Lyns of their connection, but his most recent memories of he last life point to Lyns' father's involvement in his death, along with Lyns in her previous incarnation. The novel moves at a good clip and we see Bryan in various incarnations and Lyns as she tries to make sense of all the seemingly random connections with Bryan. The individual lives are interesting, eventually bringing the reader to ancient Egypt and the idea that there was once an advanced civilization whose knowledge was lost to later generations. The idea is well executed and based on the nature of the past lives connections, plot incidences that might otherwise feel coincidental or even 'deus ex machina" make sense in the context. The characters were distinct enough and there were enough twists and suspense to keep my engagement high. Then ending worked well, although it left enough open that I wonder if there will be a sequel.
I enjoyed the dips into history and the brushes with the famous. Womack knew her the individuals she based 'past lives' on as well as their settings and the history. Womack used myth well to pull the threads together. While not the literary event of the year, it was an entertaining read that was thought provoking. Over all I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a fast-paced mystery based in science and in history.
