SEALED UP shakes to the core UCLA anthropologist Nathan Hill, in a funk since his young wife's death, learns of staggering millennia-old chronicles sealed up somewhere in a Mesoamerica cliff. This bombshell rocks him out of his gloom, and he leads a clandestine expedition to uncover them. What are they? Who put them there? No one knows.

I was really interested in checking this book out. However, when I actually picked up the book and started reading it, something changed. At first, I thought that it was me and my "reading attitude". The one where you are not in the right frame of mind to read a book but when you are in the right mind the book can look and feel like a brand new one.

Sadly, this was not the case. I picked this book up again after a break only to find that no matter how much I tried, I could not find any interest in the story or the characters. It was like I was seeing the words on the pages but they were not sticking in my head. I was just going through the motions. By the half way point something of a slight interest started to get to me but without the interest of the characters, it was lost on me. If the characters had excited me and the action started sooner, I would be saying different things about this book. ( )

Sealed Up: The Course of Fate--Book One by Steve Dunn Hanson is a very interesting book with lots of the elements I love in a book. Adventure, looking for a lost treasure, magic shaman, bad guys looking for the same thing, twists and turns, rich guy funding project that may be a little off, and more. Good plot and characters and great surprises but the book dragged in some areas. I did enjoy the book, don't get me wrong, it is worth reading. Just think it could be condensed about a hundred pages to make it flow faster and smoother. Just my opinion. I received a review copy of this book, a review was not required, all opinions are my own.

Luke, the dynamic evangelist, not only believes in the prophesies of Edgar Cayce but in his own secret personal role in them. Nathan Hill, the anthropologist specializing in Mayan culture Luke has enlisted to help discover the truth has only one chance to uncover artifacts that may change the future world-- if they really exist. In the meantime, the DEA has an ongoing investigation that crosses national borders and places undercover agent Audra Chang in danger in two worlds.

Four stars for the execution, three and a half stars for the content.

This book is well edited. The writing style is tight, mature, and professional. The story is well-written, except for minor pacing issues here and there. The setting is detailed and carefully rendered. The characters are interesting, though a little overplayed now and then. The research is obviously very thorough, and the topic of religious prophesy is one Hanson must know very well. Though the religious aspects are not overwhelming, they do exist in ways fundamental to the plot. I found myself wishing that religious beliefs were not so central to such an interesting story, (Indiana Jones found the Arc of the Covenant, but no one thinks of that as a Christian story) but that is just me. It just felt a little forced.

All in all, I enjoyed the book. Thanks to the author for the copy through Netgalley in exchange for this honest review. This review and more at annevolmering.com. ( )

I love archaeology and mystery so the idea of this book intrigued me very much.
A renowned anthropologist is lured back to a Mesoamerica cliff where he found tragedy because of the lure of a possible ancient manuscript that has the potential to change the world.
I found the lead up to the main action a bit slow and I intensely disliked the character of Brother Luke (no one in their right mind would like him) who funds the expedition. I did enjoy the other characters very much and found the research to be well done and very accurate.
All in all, I enjoyed the book and am curious about book two.
I received a copy of this book from the publishers in exchange for an honest review. ( )
