I read this book a long time ago. I had to buy another copy to write a review. Sacha is one of those rare books that I reread twice, cover to cover. No matter what spin I put on it, it doesn’t seem to do it justice. You’ll just have to read it yourself. I thought it brilliant. A bit scare but brilliant. More than 5 stars.

It seem that one shouldn’t tamper with people like Sacha Baldwin. Rising from a family already endowed with unusual gifts, Sacha takes his particular talents to the extreme. No one is allowed to stand in his way, and those who oppose him pay a dire price. Read it and beware. Sacha is playing for keeps.

It’s been a while since I read Book II of the Alexander Trilogy. I waited much too long for Sacha. Yet, when I did finally pick up a copy, the characters came back like old friends. Yet nothing prepared me for the incredible finale. The book unwound like a coiled spring until exploding in a heavenly fury of Sacha’s final victory. Whatever other books you read by Stan I.S. Law, read this one. It will sweep you off your feet!

Sacha is the astounding last book of the Alexander trilogy.
Suzy discovers her son has amazing abilities when he is 10 years old. She notices that he can move in unearthly ways and that he can disappear as well as his uncanny understanding of things at a young age. While her son Sacha, and his father Alexander (Alec), try to convince her that everything is okay, Suzy (a mother), worries for her family and rightfully so. When Sacha’s true destiny is discovered it is a challenge bigger than anyone could imagine.
Author Stan I.S. Law delivers the thrilling and emotional ending of this fascinating and insightful trilogy. He brings his talent to the forefront creating these complex and lovable characters to transmit the philosophical meaning behind it all. The story is steeped in challenge, science, art, love, romance, family, the esoteric, religion, faith and destiny.
I highly recommend it for a thought-provoking and profound experience!

As the story of Sacha unfolds, I hardly expected the earth-shuttering dénouement that, Stan Law, once again offers us, although, in hindsight, it could hardly be otherwise.
Read it. Read it carefully, and see if you, too, will be as surprised as I was. This is a story about a little boy, later a nice, kind, loving man, who changes the world as we know it—with deadly consequences for those who oppose him. Amazing?
For me, yes. For others it may well be scary. Very, very scary!

According to Sacha, we are all born with a destiny that cannot be reversed. From early childhood, Sacha pursues all avenues to find his. When he does, he pays the ultimate price, or… he’s rewarded beyond our wildest dreams. It depends on your point of view!
The novel is a great read. You’ll enjoy ever page, it will entertain you, yet, at the same time the book will make you think. To paraphrase Franz Kafka: It is an axe for the frozen sea inside you.

Sacha is not an ordinary child. He feels out of place, not belonging, longing for he knows not what, showing signs of peculiar strangeness. As he matures, so does the mystery surrounding his fate. He plays, observes, studies, searches, sacrifices all to learn his true purpose. As he nears the fulfillment of his destiny, he begins to participate in the unfoldment of the mystery. Yet, even after he seemingly finds it, the suspense unfolds still further, until, at long last…
You’ll have to read it yourself. The story is quite incredible yet, strangely convincing. Read it! And don’t be surprised if the book turns out to be prophetic.

A fascinating concept of how would a man “descending from heaven” react to our idea of how to “get to heaven.” According to Sacha we have all strayed from the straight and narrow. Is his solution the only solution? Or is it too late for all of us?
An amazing progression. In The Princess, Alec observes the world. In Alexander, Alec, now adult, visits the world. In Sacha, Alexander’s son becomes the world.
An extraordinary novel. It certainly does Kafka justice.

Even as a boy, Sacha is convinced that he’s in a physical body by mistake. It takes him years to discover his true purpose, including the reason for his embodiment. A fascinating concept. People are hoping to, eventually, go to heaven. Sacha is trying to return there. Only his heaven, his mission, and his purpose are all different from most people.
One can only wonder what demands would a reincarnation of a past savior place on his destiny. Would he act even as Sacha did? Would he be willing to die, again?
There are unspoken echoes of the past in this book. Long past, which casts a shadow of history repeating itself. In Sacha, there is wonderment, long search, studies, uncompromising commitment to the fulfillment of his destiny… Vaguely reminiscent to Stan Law’s Yeshûa. Or is it?

Having read the book at one sitting, I continue to wonder what would the Great Masters think of the way we carried out the teaching they left behind. The teaching we now regard as myths. Did we listen to the prophets, the saviors, the great teachers? Did we fulfill our destiny?
Sacha was determined to find out what was his purpose. Ultimately he did. Shouldn’t we all follow in his footsteps and search for ours? Or should be continue to follow the blind leading the blind… as we did for countless centuries?
The book is a fascinating meditation presented to us as the life of a man who does not give up his boyhood dream. Read it, but be careful. You might discover the truth about yourself!
