“Unfortunately I read this book at a time when I was super occupied with things and I didn’t get a review up right away. So now I’m stuck with a somewhat vague review.
For me this book is unforgettable, but the intense emotions and feelings it gave me were largely because of some of my own experiences and beliefs. This is a fictional book but there’s so much here about history and reincarnation that can really open our minds to some new beliefs, or just further anchor what we already believe. At the same time, it’s something that some won’t be ready for or won’t really understand or connect with.
But you can go into it just for the fun experience. It’s an epic love story and has some incredible history in it as well. There’s no preachy aspect and the characters are fully fleshed out. It’s a long story, and it requires a bit of a time commitment, but in my opinion it’s totally worth it!
I highly encourage checking out the authors website and watching the video about the research they did. It’s fascinating!”
“A bold, unforgettable tale of power, devotion, lust, and the timeless battle between good and evil
Gritty adventure and ancient wisdom collide in this thirteen-thousand-year saga of love and hate. As the world descends from a Golden Age into darkness and suffering, Marcus has been reincarnated an exhausting number of times. Selected to become an Emissary, it is his duty to protect the world’s most sacred, long-standing secrets. When Marcus surreptitiously consumes a serum that allows him to retain his memory from one lifetime to the next, he inadvertently condemns himself to thousands of years of torment, loneliness, and searching. Desperate to always remember his soul mate, Theron, and unsure as to whether or not he was ever truly meant to be an Emissary, Marcus’s struggles span lifetimes through ancient Bolivia, Greece, the Mongol Empire, and Shambhala, ever remaining vigilantly alert to the danger of his cruel and powerful nemesis, Helghul. An epic, thought-provoking tale of reincarnation, the brutality of human existence, and the struggle facing all of humanity.”
“Wow! I picked up the book from you two on Friday at the Body/Soul/Spirit Expo and I just finished it this morning. What a truly amazing book- if I took even just one thing from that expo worthwhile it was the purchase of that book- thank you.”
“An epic tale of the passionate relations of three souls across 26.000 years One Great Year. The story is beautifully written and emotionally engrossing. Whether in exotic locations, historical sites or fantasy worlds, the descriptive language does a great job of building images for the reader, and evoking understanding of the characters. Despite its length, I was eagerly looking for more. I would have enjoyed another 50 pages of ending – it slipped by so quickly, and I didn’t what the story to end. This book is appropriate to a wide audience, and is easy to appreciate whether you believe in re-incarnation or not. I could relate well to many avatars of the main characters.”

“I’m only on page 138 but I had to pause (reluctantly) to tell you how amazing this book is. I am extremely well read. All the classics and a lot of not so classics too. I’ve never encountered such a beautiful description of The Path! Kudos to a job very well done!!! Can’t wait to finish it!”

“This book had a feeling of pure fiction, but the grip of reality. I had to keep reading for as long my mind would allow. The thoughts I held captive for my whole life until the moment I opened this book, were in someone else’s mind as well. It was refreshing to have a book find me once again, only the Celestine prophecy was able to reach me on this level of life. I imagine my journey from here on, to be forever enriched by this book. It is a must read for anyone searching out their own journey.”

“Beyond amazing… and I couldn’t put it down. Since then I have been reflecting on the stories and themes as they are reflected in my own life and relationships. Now a couple of months later I have picked it up again for a second read and I am fascinated once again. I have not been so moved by a novel since the Celestine Prophecy.”

“One Great Year is a brilliant debut novel. The real beauty of this book is how it encourages the reader to think ‘outside the box’. Well written and engaging, the story line combines, history, philosophy, fantasy and romance. The minute I finished, I was ready to read it all over; that is the measure of a great book. One Great Year is one great read. I highly recommend it.”
