Jesus in Kashmir The Lost Tomb

By Suzanne Olsson / Genre: Adventurers & Explorers, Specific Groups, Biographies & Memoirs / Rating: 4.2 out of 5 stars (29 reviews)

Jesus in Kashmir The Lost Tomb

Historians know almost nothing about the two decades following the crucifixion of Jesus. ‘Jesus in Kashmir The Lost Tomb’ presents compelling new evidence about the life of Jesus derived from a variety of sources in the East unknown to most Western scholars, and his unknown life before and after the crucifixion. This new evidence follows the lesser known trail of Jesus. The result of many years of investigative research, Jesus in Kashmir The Lost Tomb’ takes the reader to all the historical sites connected with Jesus in Israel, the Middle East, Afghanistan and India. As well as revealing age-old links between the Israelites and the East, and the magi and kings who came for his birth, the evidence found by Suzanne Olsson verifies the startling conclusions: In his youth Jesus followed the Silk Road to India, where he had ancient family ties. Among a number of well researched and well composed books on the subject of the origins of the historical Jesus, this stands out as the most carefully researched and filled with never before published information. The DNA of God Project is the effort to gather as much DNA as possible from ancient tombs that are rapidly disappearing forever, destroyed by cultural terrorism.

Blindness

It takes a while to know who you really are. And when you lose your way, sometimes it’s hard to find it again.

Charlie Hudson was on the verge of figuring that out when her dad—the only parent and friend she ever had—died suddenly. She was barely 18, and she was alone. So she went for easy—playing life safe, running away from a home that harbored nothing but bad memories and challenges and loving a man who would take her away from it all forever.

It’s funny how chance takes over when you need it most. And that’s exactly what brought Cody Carmichael into her life. A former motocross super star, Cody was now happy to be living the blue collar life, spending his days finishing up school and his nights under the hood of some classic car, just trying to keep everything his father taught him alive. Cody and Charlie were living parallel lives, until they finally collided. And the moment he smiled at her, Charlie knew he was the one who would change everything. But was she willing to take the risk?

Cody saw through it all. He saw her—all of her. But would letting him in be too much to take? And if Charlie let herself love him—really love him—could he love her back?

Too bad the band’s lead singer is doing his best to ruin everything I am.

No one should make me feel this way. One look at her, one smell, and I knew I’d have to have her. She does things to me that scare the shit out of me. Make me want to slam her on a wall and listen to her cries: eager or fearful, it doesn’t matter.

I’m a monster…

Unearthed (The Pactem Orbis Legends)

Gemma Alexandra Pointe is not a fitting name for a warrior, a vigilante, or a mystic. One would never hear the name and assume it belongs to a powerful person, like an influential politician or religious leader. And it certainly doesn’t sound like the name of a “supernatural”—an angel, a mermaid, or a fairy godmother. But that’s what I am: a supernatural. In the first of Karen Seymour’s epic Pactem Orbis Legends, there are no heroes or saviors. There is only Gemma, an introspective college student, and the new reality she’s forced to face when a mysterious, green-eyed stranger shares a secret: She’s an Essen, like him. Descended from elementals, and soon-to-be gifted—on her twenty-first birthday—with superpowers. But Malakai Zonn also believes she’s “the Link,” prophesized to possess a weapon powerful enough to destroy the Essen’s mortal enemies, spirit-beings known as the Dothen. Reluctant to participate in a supernatural war and desperate to preserve the life she knows, Gemma must choose: normal or supernatural, safety or greatness, love or duty. Her choices are as complicated as they are permanent, and in order to thwart evil, the secrets of the past—and Gemma’s true purpose—must be unearthed.
