From the dust cover: “What would it take for you, to stop for a moment and imagine that everything you have ever understood to be true, everything you have learnt about the world you live in, and everything you have been told, could in fact be an elaborate fiction? If one piece of the veil of reality is shattered, what next?
A Skydive goes wrong and the participants share an experience that on the one hand gives them a definitive explanation for a controversial phenomenon, but on the other, sets before them a myriad of questions they decide to investigate. They go their separate ways and back to their normal lives, yet things aren’t quite the same and for some, life seems to have taken a twist towards the surreal.
The group reassembles and discuss their findings. As alarming events are recounted, they are unified by what they hear; fear and shock grips them. What would normally be considered a bizarre suggestion, now appeals, and they set course to that end. As they continue to investigate and events unfold, how will the revelations ahead sit with them and could they turn back, even if they wanted to?”
My Ebook review: honestly I am not really a big fan of serial novels for some reason but I was interested in this one primarily because of its topic and because it came with two parts in one offering which gave it the feeling of a more full story.
Veritas Liberabit Vos is action packed and full of interesting undercurrents and in fact this is a story that gripped me from the beginning. I am a big fan of this sort of ‘what if’ fiction that takes into account some of the fringe aspects of the interpretation of our history.
This work walks a swift pace through a large swathe of paranormal activity and combines it neatly with a broad band of characters and good old fashioned bad guys. In one sense some of the characters are relatively generic but that is not a problem because their approach to understanding a chance joint experience is what really matters. When we have the diversity of characters we are able to see the story from a number of different angles and it helps to bring rapid depth to the story.
This is a book worth reading and even though it is a serial novel it is actually pretty complete. It will appeal to paranormal enthusiasts and conspiracy lovers out there.
Did I enjoy it: yes, I would really like to read the next installments.
