Book Review – Legends of the Light Bearer
Rating: 3.5 of 5
Author: L.M. Aldrich
Struggling to push her agenda forward, Breanna Shepard, junior senator from Virginia, finds roadblocks at every turn. But when Breanna learns of the federal government’s harassment of citizens in one of the small towns in her state, she decides that enough is enough. Taking matters into her own hands, she begins an investigation and uncovers a chilling truth – one that shakes the very foundation of all she has ever known and believed about the very nature and history of humanity itself.
L.M. Aldrich’s “Legends of the Light Bearer” is a very thought provoking tale which pulls substantially from the Gnostic scriptures as well as other non-mainstream documents which hint at something very different from our current understanding of humanity’s origin. Dan Brown was a master at creating a plausible alternative view of Christianity in his works and occasionally Legends has a few similar moments. However, I found the main character’s whining at the beginning of the book about the US government and Christianity to be too superficial to be convincing. The action and pace start to pick up about twenty percent into the book and kept my attention. This section was the strength of the novel and I found myself repeatedly intrigued by some of the concepts presented. Finally, near the end my suspension of disbelief was stretched a bit too much.
Overall, “Legends” offers some strong, intriguing, and thought provoking concepts for readers to consider.
