M.J Rose’s Reincarnationist series
The reincarnationist is a thriller novel series written by Melisse Jacqueline Rose. This series is all about supernatural phenomena and reincarnation as suggested by the title. It has so far been adapted to a Fox TV series called ‘Past Life’. Seven episodes of this series were produced but only five were aired.
The Reincarnation series book publications were done in durations of one to two years. The first book of the series named The Reincarnationist was published in 2007, The Memorist in 2008, The Hypnotist in 2009, The Book of Lost Fragrances in 2012, and The Collection of Dying Breaths that was published in 2014.
The reincarnationist is a modern day thriller fiction and historical love story. The book has one step on the present day New York City and Rome, and another foot on Rome 1600 years ago. The book’s story is about two worlds consumed by fire of passion and intrigue.
Josh Ryder who is a photojournalist survives bomb but ends up being haunted by the hallucinatory memories of his pagan life in Rome and his involvement with Sabina, a Vestal Virgins. This love affair troubles him so much as their exposure will lead to their execution. Scents of sandalwood and jasmine together with the images of liaisons descend on poor Josh, pulling him to some ancient but strangely familiar burial chamber of Romans that contains remains of a woman who is crutching a wooden box.
A trail of murderers in the present day takes us into a labyrinth where at the core of it lays a collection of ancient memory stones or gems whose origin trace back to ancient India and Egypt. The stones then promise to help the wearer to reach his incarnation putting the modern and ancient worlds into a collision course.
As you read on, you realize that the question of who we are can never be asked without first asking who we were. This book tries to answer that through the author’s research on reincarnation and through Josh’s predicaments, paving way for her second book on the series.
The memorist is the second book in the series that starts off by one of the series’ characters Meer Logan being haunted by memories of another place and time that is often accompanied by a faint strain of elusive music. Now her dreads are back. The past come to her in form of a very strange letter that makes her very curious to search on who she really is.
The memorist is a page turner that races across and takes you to a Viennese tear-gas-filled house, and dusty museums with hidden passages deeper in the walls of this memorist society with a lot of secrets. It is a difficult journey through centuries as Logan unravels all the mysteries behind her past life.Book Series In Order » Authors » M.J Rose
