Devin ventures outside of her normal paranormal chick-lit and comedic writing to spin a tale that is spiritual, moving, and very inspirational to all, regardless of faith or religion.
Dark Spirits have also followed Cole back to his small Montana town and home, and they manifest themselves in various forms of hate, violence, and ignorance, wreaking havoc on friends and family.
O'Branagan combines several religious and mystical beliefs together in THRESHOLD, and instead of pitting them against each other, weaves them into a strong, solid system that allows them to work together, taking the best from each and using it to battle against evil. The result is a beautiful arrangement that I think we could all benefit from in our real lives. Instead of automatically assuming a belief system is wrong or untrue simply because it is different from your own is erroneous. If we could have open minds and look deeply into different religions and belief systems, we would see that almost all are based on love, truth, and doing the right thing. O'Branagan shows us what the results of that could be in this wonderfully inspirational book, THRESHOLD.
I would recommend this read to anyone. It may leave you with more questions than answers, especially regarding near-death experiences, what happens to us after we die, and the differences in many of the Native American religious beliefs, Judaism, Christianity, and even Wiccan beliefs. But those can lead to fun and fruitful discussions and research.
I think one of the marks of a good book is that you continue to think about it after reading. You will definitely be doing that after reading THRESHOLD. Please read, and let's have a discussion about it!
