Editorial Reviews

Michael Weaver
This page-turner by Robert Simmons is the very epitome of visionary fiction- a remarkably down to earth adventure through a wonderland of metaphysical ideas and practices. A band of engaging characters delves into astral travel, holotropic breathwork, tarot and I-Ching divination, channeling, hands on healing and near death experience, while investigating government conspiracies and alien abductions, myths and memory, and morphogenic fields. At the heart of their quest is the Earthfire- the flame at the center of personal and global transformation. Simmons' tone finds the perfect balance between jocularity and earnestness, skepticism and curiosity; his story, tinged with suspence and routed through a maze of synchronicities, is, above all, an expression of the seeker's pursuit of higher consciousness.

When a New Age book and crystal shop--coincidentally called the Missing Link--becomes the vortex for a global spiritual awakening, one couple stands up for truth and saves humankind from its self-destructive tendencies. Although the plot sounds melodramatic, this visionary work harbors surprises. Like the evangelical novelist Frank Peretti, Simmons sees spiritual warfare everywhere, making for an exciting climactic conflict between good and evil. He does a fine job of explaining New Age thought, demonstrating how its various aspects--crystals, astrology, holotropic breathwork, aliens, I Ching, morphogenic fields, consciousness evolution, spirit guides and channeling among them--fit together. He also provides a compelling story, with the bad guys (dressed in black, naturally) seeking money and power, and the good characters fighting valiantly for spiritual truth. They help the world evolve to its next stage of consciousness--with the assistance of a few good aliens--before the planet destroys itself. Despite its tendency toward wordy preachiness, Simmons's novel is fun to read, and doesn't take itself overly seriously. Readers interested in visionary fiction or New Age thought should enjoy this one. (Aug.) Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
From The Critics
This tale has such heartfelt realism that the reader might confuse it with nonfiction. The book is cleverly written in first person with the prologue immediately focusing on the plight of whether the earth is "renewed or destroyed" by its own population. A murder is introduced and then the narrator eases into the beginnings of his story.

Five friends, Will, Helen, Sebastian, Maddie, and Radha, bring together their knowledge, beliefs, and adventures that keep the story burning right along. It all centers around a small, metaphysical crystal, jewelry, and book shop in coastal New England. The characters may be a bit pat in their reactions, but all are likeable and add intrigue to the story. There is much spiritual seeking that is an education in itself. The consistent theme of fire is rediscovered through inner-awareness methods that they all explore. These include astrology, prophecy, divination, near-death experiences, morphogenic fields, breathwork, tarot, I Ching, and ETs. They are all addressed in an integrated fashion, leaning often on the lectures from guest speakers who come to the shop and add fuel to synchronistically occurring events.

An underlying plot involving mysterious bad guys, who are quintessentially dressed in black and give out black calling cards, lurks through the illuminating truths the characters are pursuing. All is resolved in the end, except for the biggest metaphysical question that is the main thread throughout the book: is the earth now or soon to be at a tumultuous turning point of awareness? As Anon, the spiritual entity channeled through Radha, says: "Thus the holy fire may begin as tiny sparks in a scattered few, but from this it can spread throughout your race and become the Earthfire, the cleansing flame which consumes all that is corrupt and brings humanity to new birth."

Earthfire is a breeze to read, and, at the same time, reaches into the soul and takes a few twists...reminding those who venture into this tale that discovering the link between physical reality and the spirit is the key to inner enlightenment and the only hope for the planet earth.

    Mind-Opening: I couldn't put it down!

    This book masterfully blends an exciting tale of mystery and personal quest with leading-edge information on the inner revolution going on in consciousness. The characters were very real and fun to know. I was fascinated at the way the author put together the pieces of the puzzle from science & spirituality. It was a great read!
