Waking God

( 4 )

Overview

Deep within humanity is a genetic code, the god seed. There are two people--MARA and ANDREW--who each possess an active half of the god seed code. This code was placed in humanity by ADAM who, when created, was to be exalted even above the angels. The angels did not and do not like this situation. They also do not like ADAM's plan to dream himself into physical reality when the two halves of the code come together. When God created ADAM he subsequently put ADAM to sleep--a sleep from which he was never awoken. It...

Overview

Deep within humanity is a genetic code, the god seed. There are two people--MARA and ANDREW--who each possess an active half of the god seed code. This code was placed in humanity by ADAM who, when created, was to be exalted even above the angels. The angels did not and do not like this situation. They also do not like ADAM's plan to dream himself into physical reality when the two halves of the code come together. When God created ADAM he subsequently put ADAM to sleep--a sleep from which he was never awoken. It is in ADAM's dreams that we find the world as we know it today. The angels serve a purpose in the dream world, but they will have little purpose if ADAM comes into the physical. ADAM's ally is a person named MANTRELLA, meaning "Morning Star" (estrella de la maƱana). Here is the eternal struggle: The Archangel MICHAEL vs. MANTRELLA. The question posed is who really represents humanity's best interests? WAKING GOD has been termed a "spiritual thriller." It is a spiritual treatise in the guise of a novel which is part prophetic, part heresy, and totally transformational.

Read an Excerpt

CHAPTER 1

Two floors below the earth's surface, a lab technician waited for DNA results. He had no idea why the blood sample he'd been told to analyze was so important, nor did he completely understand the gravity of the results. He was to look for a sequence; that was all--a particular order that must exactly match the code entered into the computer two hours earlier by a man he hadn't recognized, but who wore the credentials of Dr. L.M. D'Italia that bore the hospital administrator's personal seal. Had it not been Christmas Eve he might have sought clarification on the matter from his direct superior, but he was alone in the lab and his supervisor wasn't answering pager or phone. And since the stranger had been sent, it seemed, from the administrator herself, he thought it was in his best interest to perform the test without contention.

The computer chirped, and the technician turned his attention to the monitor. Cool blue light washed over his face as he studied the left side of the screen, where a three-dimensional image of a double helix twisted in a frame like a barbershop pole. The colored spheres embedded within the strands clearly showed the specific pattern earlier entered into the program by the doctor. In a frame to the right of the image was a continuous stream of data from the blood analysis, as the software struggled to configure a second three-dimensional double helix.

A moment passed and the new double helix appeared in the frame to the right. The technician typed in a command from the keyboard, before double-clicking the new image with his mouse. The computer overlaid the three-dimensional double helix images. The combined framesimmediately flashed red, indicating an exact match.

"Perfect," the technician breathed. He pulled a handheld computer out of the pocket of his lab coat and fingered for the stylus. Tapping the contacts button, he scrolled through a list of names and telephone numbers, searching for the extension Dr. D'Italia had instructed him to call as soon as he obtained the results of the analysis.

At the telephone on the opposite wall the technician entered in the extension number on the keypad and waited for someone on the other end to answer.

"D'Italia," a man's voice answered.

"I've just gotten the results of the blood analysis."

"And?"

"There's a match."

"An exact match?" the doctor's soft voice demanded.

"I would say so."

"For your sake, I hope you're correct."

    Looking at God--from a different angle

    I read this book with a bit of apprehension, as it sounded to me like a mockery of Christianity. However, what a wonderful surprise lay ahead of me! WAKING GOD is a book that takes a contemporary setting, throws in a bit of fantasy in a trip around the world in the future, then flashes all the way back to the Garden of Eden, and does it with such smoothness and grace that you hardly know where you are living when you finally reach the end and set it aside. Authors Doe and Harris, I understand, have a trilogy planned for this book, and I can't wait for the next one. I am one of the few people on the planet who has not read The Da Vinci Code, but from what I've heard about it (and that is a lot), I'd grab another Doe/Harris book over it any day. Well done, and highly recommended! Janet Elaine Smith, author of 14 published novels (OLD HABITS DIE HARD is the latest one) and 2 non-fiction books (PromoPaks: Nearly Free Marketing for Authors the latest).

    Kept me turning those pages -

    A newborn baby girl's DNA holds the key to something important enough to change Humankind's future. Why is this infant, significantly named Mara, kidnapped and her parents assassinated on the day of her birth? Clearly someone has plans for this child, and just as clearly someone else doesn't want to see those plans carried out. Nor does a young professor of comparative religion want his passionate skepticism challenged in ways he can't begin to ignore - but someone also has plans for Andrew. Ancient prophecies coming to fulfillment. The end of days drawing near. Cataclysmic events working themselves out as if scripted. Fantastic beings appearing to Humans, and interacting with them, as one more speculative fiction tale utilizes the classic morality play format...no, wait a minute! That's where this book leaves other works in its apparent genre behind, because this is decidedly not a morality play. Authors Doe and Harris have done an impressive amount of research into ancient myths, manuscripts, and belief systems. They've used this research to spin a tale that kept this lifelong lover of speculative fiction turning pages far into the night. Their characters, even the fantastically non-Human ones, came to life and demanded that I care what happened next. Their plot held together, and the universe they created stayed consistent even as it also became progressively more complicated. I'll want to read the rest of this intriguing speculative fiction trilogy for sure!
