"A wild ride - The pages fly by"
For true entertainment--thrills, chills, and a wild ride--The
Reincarnationist fills the bill and then some.
Since his near-death caused by a suicide bomber,
Ryder's life has become impossible. Gone are his job, his
wife, and all he
knew. Without warning, Josh becomes Julius, a Roman priest a
Roman priest in
391AD, fighting for not only his life but that of his
lover's, as well as
the sacred rites they've held holy for thousands of years.
Just as quickly,
he returns to present day as Josh.
His world is even more confused when an archeologist who's
excavating a tomb
of a Vestal Virgin, is murdered. Josh describes the killer
to Rome's police,
but is held as a suspect. The beautiful archeologist
Gabriella Chase gets
him released from prison, but then he's caught up in a web
of love, both
past and present, murder, extortion, and deceit.
The pages fly by as Josh and Gabriella are tossed from one
another, sometimes fighting for their very lives. I
thoroughly enjoyed The
Reincarnationist from cover to cover and I highly recommend
this book. Take
a comfy seat and let M.J. Rose unravel this mysterious
adventure for you!

A bomb in Rome, a flash of bluish-white light, and photojournalist Josh Ryder's world exploded. From that instant nothing would ever be the same.
As Josh recovers, his mind is increasingly invaded with thoughts that have the emotion, the intensity, the intimacy of memories. But they are not his memories. They are ancient . . . and violent. A battery of medical and psychological tests can't explain Josh's baffling symptoms. And the memories have an urgency he can't ignore—pulling him to save a woman named Sabina . . . and the treasures she is protecting.
But who is Sabina?
Desperate for answers, Josh turns to the world-renowned Phoenix Foundation—a research facility that scientifically documents cases of past life experiences. His findings there lead him to an archaeological dig and to Professor Gabriella Chase, who has discovered an ancient tomb—a tomb with a powerful secret that threatens to merge the past with the present. Here, the dead call out to the living, and murders of the past become murders of the present.
