About the book:
This book got me intrigued with the first few chapters.  The book takes no time in getting the story.  I like that it is fast paced.  We find Ryen in Zhimeya in upheaval.  There are flickers of "governmental Tribunal" hostility and social splits as a result of belief.  They are looking for a savior.  They have scientists, Masters of Technology, developing ways to figure out about a certain "Light" or "savior" exists.  On the watershed of war, Ryen and the team of researchers head to earth to find any kind of evidence of the savior believed to have lived and died on earth.

Ryen is smitten after a few months living on earth, and author Kristin Bryant complicates things as the hostility within Zhimeya comes to a head.  Her book sort of turns into an action packed read.  I like the historical references the researchers talk about, and the ideas that play throughout this book reference the bible from time to time.  Though I have to say, it is not a preachy book, it's more of a science fictional book.   Overall it is a fun easy read.  

From the Back Cover :
A dangerous adventure to save a distant world Ryen is just a normal guy trying to do his job. Unfortunately, that job includes trying to save his distant world on the brink of disaster.

Ryen is on a mission to Earth to find the answers to his distant world's most critical questions. While searching the Yucatan Peninsula for a mythic figure-a savior-who would live a perfect life and ultimately die to save their souls, Ryen meets Savannah, a beautiful woman hiding a painful past. On their dangerous adventures together through the untamed jungles of Mexico, he can't help but fall in love with her. As his time runs out, Ryen must decide if he is willing to give up everything he has ever known and loved to stay on Earth with Savannah.

The Masters, a powerful clan of corrupt leaders, are plotting to take back Earth, the sacred planet, from the humans. Ryen and Savannah are thrust into the middle of The Masters' plot.

Kristin Bryant is a teacher, author and, most importantly, a mom. She teaches anthropology and psychology for a virtual high school and lives in Orange County, California with her husband and two sons. Visit her at kristinbryant.com.
