  • We, The Hidden (Book 1) The Race Within on Dec. 24, 2011

    A Hidden Gem We The Hidden (Book 1) The Race Within delves into an absorbing world of shamans, psychics, ancient civilizations, astral travel, remote viewing and telepathy – what a fabulous theme for a thriller. LaBarba weaves an intriguing web of adventure and wonder as her characters develop and evolve in their quest to uncover the secrets behind the Lemurian legend. The answers they find are more than they or I could ever have imagined. The characters are well-delineated, bold and inspiring. They are each driven by personal reasons to seek the truth and LaBarba skilfully discloses their secrets, what has happened to them and what is going to happen to them in a completely believable way. They shine through and I found I could easily relate to their idiosyncrasies, frailties and humour. Sometimes they had me laughing and other times teary as they carried me through this stunning adventure to the very last word. I knew little of shamanism and the Lemurian legend before picking up this book but it opened my eyes to a world of knowledge and innate forces that have been lost or hidden over the ages. The theme of love and hate is so beautifully woven between the lines that it left me thinking about the powers of these emotions long after I finished reading. The intertwining of reality and mysticism makes this a very refreshing piece of fiction indeed. This is a must read and I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series.
