Alexander is the second book in the Alexander trilogy though it reads well on its own if you choose to start here.
Alec having just earned his master’s degree is about to set out for his doctorate. He is struggling with his abilities to traverse time and space while being a student of physics and knowing that it defies current logic. Suzy (wife and childhood love) begs to differ as she has witnessed the happenings.
Alec earns his doctorate and continues to struggle with letting go of his abilities and Princess Sandra (his childhood guide through the unknown). As Suzy and Alec marry and have a child, Sacha, (who obviously has abilities of his own) they will explore more of this scientifically unexplainable ability.
Love, romance, family, adventure, fantasy and science rule in this fascinating story of a man who strives to reconcile his reality and his knowledge. Author Stan I.S. Law will take you to places you never imagined and help you to explore enchanting thoughts and possibilities. I highly recommend it!

Mystery takes on a different meaning when confronted by past realities, past civilizations, which most of us deny ever existed. Kingdom of Mu, Atlantis, Lemuria all come alive in Alec’s mind. And then there are the echoes of his youth, whence the Princess demands her dues.
An extraordinary novel wherein the past the present and the future seem mixed in a reality that exists only in Alec’s head, yet comes alive on the pages we read.
Can’t wait for the final part of the Trilogy!

It is one thing to fight one’s physical demons, quite another when one suspects that they reside in the depth of one’s own psyche. Alexander, the mysterious amalgam of Alec and Sandra, had to cope with both. His youth had given him a foretaste of things to come, and now, in adulthood, he had to reconcile the evidence of his senses with his boyish fantasies, which he begun to suspect were more real than he ever imagined.
This is a fantastic story in which most of the action takes place within one man’s consciousness. You must decide who and when will emerge victorious.

Anyone who read the Princess wants to know how will Alec turn out when he grows up. It is obvious that the enigma created by his union with Sandra must be resolved in his later years.
Stan Law gives us a fascinating portrayal of a young man struggling with his ‘inner self’. One can but wonder if we are all destined to meet our soul, perhaps in outer realities, perhaps in the silence of our hearts. Alec, now Alexander, did both.
A novel you don’t want to miss.

Having read the Princess, Book I of the Alexander Trilogy, I found that what may seem innocuous to us when young, when adults we must pay the piper for the same thoughts or actions. The level of the payment is proportional to our ability to pay it. Dr. Alec Baldwin presents a fascinating study of the consequences of our actions not at physical but at mental and/or emotional level. It seems that we can do almost anything providing we remain true to our own self. Fascinating!
I look forward to Book III of the Trilogy. I’m sure Stan Law will continue to surprise us with his pen.

A wonderful sequel to the Princess. Alexander grows up to be a man and a scientist who finally arrives at the truth which Sandra imparted to him in his youth. It was a difficult journey, filled with mystery, suspense, even black magic, but a journey well worth while. One can but wonder if his son, Sacha, will inherit his abilities.
A first class novel.

Never have I seen the past brought back to life as vividly as Stan Law does it in this novel. The book challenges our vision of reality—as we know it. Not just our concept of history, but Alec, now Dr. Alexander Baldwin, shows us that the here-and-now has dimensions previously unheard of. He visits the Kingdom of Mu, Lemuria, Atlantis, witnesses the death of Socrates and the struggle of St. Peter, the horror of the Dark Ages… as well as the enigmatic realities of Home Planet and the Far Country…
He pays dearly for his mistakes but, at long last, he finds the true purpose of life, right here, on Earth. An extraordinary book!

Law suggests that when all is said and done, we must “just live”. This would be easier to accept if his hero, the famous scientist Dr. Alexander Baldwin, didn’t enjoy the whirlwind tour of realities of which most readers may not even have dreamed. Until now…
The question is, therefore, what and how much we must pay for venturing into the unknown? Is it the forbidden fruit? Or do we pay by ignoring that aspect of our psyche, which refuses to reach out? In the meantime, I’ll see you on the Home Planet. For most people that will be as close to heaven as anyone can get. Or… perhaps that is Heaven? For now, it's good enough for me.

Alec grows up to become a successful physicist. The more he departs from the Cosmic Merging (The Princess—Alexander Trilogy Book I) the more he pays for this apparent transgression. What follows is a spiritual, intellectual and emotional struggle—an ongoing Armageddon—to regain his rightful place in the universe.
Law spans different realities with the ease of a seasoned traveler. It is hard to believe that his ventures into the unknown are not backed up by personal experience. If so, Stan Law must be among the most fascinating living metaphysicians. Either that, or his imagination draws on realities inaccessible to the rest of us, although he insists that his ventures are well within the reach of human potential. Still, we pay when we venture into the unknown, even as Alexander Baldwin, the hero of the novel, did. Read it and then try… if you dare.
I can’t wait for the final part of the Alexander Trilogy. I’m told Sacha—The Way Back, is in the making. Soon!

They say that leopard never changes his spots. Likewise, Alec, once infected with unbridled imagination, now continues to expand his horizons to continents long lost in hoary antiquity. Yet Alec, now Dr. Alexander Baldwin, Ph.D., brings them to life as though they existed side by side with our times. With Alec at the helm, Mu, Lemuria, and Atlantis are as real as Europe or Asia… though even there he reaches back into the forgotten past.
And then, there is a dark side that Alec dares to uncover. Beware, Alec paid dearly for allowing his mind to take over the dictates of his soul. Beware…
I can’t wait for Alexander Trilogy Book III.

I had the privilege of reading the proof copy of this long awaited sequel to The Princess. Now, in Book II of the Alexander Trilogy, Dr. Alec Baldwin, (Alexander, the mysterious amalgam of Alec & Sandra) comes to life as a brilliant physicist. Though a man completely dedicated to science, he still struggles with emotional and spiritual dilemmas, which appear to be at odds with science. Alec’s ventures into of Lemuria, Atlantis, the Kingdom of Mu, as well as his enigmatic realities of the Home Planet and The Far Country are breathtaking, each in a sublimely different way. He dares to reach far beyond the usual boundaries of imagination.
If you, too, are at times dissatisfied with the evidence of your senses, you’ll love this book. If not, Law will take you for a ride you’ll not easily forget.
