***** Wow – Spiritual Alignment Review by Rox Burkey
Author Cindy Davis gives readers history, legend, and archeological discoveries in the final book of the Zipacna Trilogy. However, it is the circle of family love and insight which captivated my imagination.
Jade and Luna are often apart due to work demands. Their two-year-old daughter K’inn is beginning her independence in unique ways with surprising manifestations.
Luna’s colleague GB requests Luna come to Peru to inspect one of the artifacts uncovered at the latest dig site. After seeing the item and having so many unanswered questions, Luna asks Jade to join him. Jade is intrigued but torn due to a commitment to host the Festival for Advanced Spiritual Healing at the school inherited from Zipacna. The trip opens her eyes in numerous ways. Here is a sample of how this begins.
“When she had trouble with the pronunciation, Luna said the locals simply called it Ollanta, pronounced o-yan-ta. The town of 10,000 inhabitants was located at a much lower altitude than here in Cusco, which was around 11,000 feet. Ollanta, at 9,000, would produce much less in the way of altitude sickness, an especially good thing because she hated when children were sick; they had no way to tell what was wrong.
If she’d been in a better frame of mind, Jade would have looked forward to this trip. The Inca ruins in Ollanta were nowhere near the enormity of the neighboring Machu Picchu, but physically they resembled the Maya ruins near where she lived in Mexico. It would be fun to compare the architecture to take back to the students at her school. At the same time, the smaller scope of the Inca ruins ensured she’d have time to explore every inch.”
Soon after her arrival, Luna, Jade, GB, and Miguel find themselves peeling back the layers of a mystery hundreds of years in the making. K’iin manifests behaviors suggesting she may be a spiritual prodigy. The continued character development makes this the perfect capstone to the series and a delight to read as a standalone book.
I heartily recommend this book for lovers of history and mysticism. I find the realism that Cindy Davis injects into her books makes me want to explore the possibilities. If you need to read a story to make you wonder, this will fit the bill. The mystery will keep you until you discover all the pieces masterfully woven together.
