review 1: Really liked the premise of the story, especially the historical background. What history buff doesn't enjoy a good fantastical foray into a legend as fascinating as that of the great Lighthouse at Alexandria? Unfortunately I found the remote viewing basis to be distracting. I normally find no problem in a suspension of belief, especially for something as well grounded in research and history, and I've recently enjoyed a couple of books based on this. But whether in the writing style.or how it was wound into this story, I just couldn't get my head around it this time, and that ultimately detracted from an otherwise interesting novel.
review 2: I'll try most anything related to ancient history, but I was a bit hesitant to give this a try because the plot seemed
... moreoutlandish and there are so many other books vying for attention. But since I'd seen (and enjoyed) George Clooney's The Men Who Stare at Goats, I figured I'd give it a try. I was not disappointed. Sure there's a CIA-driven mind-reading element and mystical/mental time travel stuff, but that didn't hinder me from enjoying a fun read that kept me turning the pages. I'm looking forward to what happens next... less

A good archaeology search book. Looking forward to sequel.
OK but probably wouldn't recomend to anyone.
