LISA'S REVIEW: The Re-Awakening (Carter Vance)

Title: The Re-Awakening
Author: Carter Vance


The saga continues. He has returned, but not yet awakened to fulfill His destiny.
 With The Re-Awakening, the second book of the Second Coming Series, author Carter Vance continues the thrilling story of the modern day return of Christ.
 Like the first book, it is full of action and suspense that takes place in a chaotic world reeling towards the prophesied Apocalypse.
 The first book, The Return, re-counted the circumstances of His birth. The Re-Awakening chronicles the events of His growth and the re-acquiring of His Christ Consciousness.
 The first son in the bloodline of Jesus Christ, Lazarus J. Christos, must immerse Himself in the modern day world and prepare to fulfill His mission that has been prophesied for two thousand years.
 With the aide of the order of the Knights Templar, long existing in the shadows, and the even less known organization of The Founders, young Lazarus, on a path of personal discovery, encounters His doubts and faces His fears of His ability to fulfill His mission.
 Meanwhile, His enemies mount their plan for His eradication and their goal of world domination. They believe there is a way for them to prevail beyond the prophecies. These Dark Forces embark upon a worldwide hunt for legendary artifacts of power that might tip the balance of power to their advantage for the forthcoming ultimate battle of good versus evil for the soul of humanity.

I miss the Templars! This is a lot like the first in the descriptiveness of the story and history but, lacks the action and some of the mystery. I did get more of the characters in this book which really helped me get more involved in the story. I still feel like way too much is going on for so few pages. I liked seeing Laz learn and grow in his role. The descriptiveness, though vivid, was almost distracting in parts from the story and the characters. I found that I like this story more than the first but miss certain aspects from the Return. I miss the action and of course the big role of the Knights. I liked that this one had bits of comedy. It gives this story a even lighter air to it. With less action and a little comedy, this book seems a little more realistic in  the plot. Not as much of an action packed adventure. An overall good read in its genre!
