“The past is entombed in the present, the world is its own enduring monument; and that which is true of its physical is likewise true of its mental career. There are mental fossils for psychologists as there are mineral fossils for the geologists—one investigates the earth, while the other explores the human beings who have roamed over its surface in the shadows. Aye, the mental telescope is now discovered which may pierce the depths of the past and bring us in full view of the grand and tragic passages of ancient history.” - Joseph Rodes Buchanan, Manual of Psychometry: The Dawn of a New Civilization
Since the age of 9, Matt Turner's gift of psychometry has remained both blessing and curse. As a living window into the past, he has returned to humankind volumes of knowledge once lost to history, as well as countless, previously unimaginable artifacts.
Unfortunately, a talent like Matt’s can only be kept secret for so long, and those who covet such lost and rare items view him only as a prized tool. It’s these unscrupulous few who eventually cause Matt to withdraw from society, robbing the world of one of its most precious resources, but there are a few things that can draw the reluctant hero from hiding—however, not always by his choosing.
*I was given a copy of this book series in exchange for an honest review*
Maaaaaaan! I got sucked into The Dig in a BIG way! Completely engrossing! Some pre-history, some paranormal, some archaeology, all great fun. The dig gets 5 Platypires from me.
The second book, the Opal, didn’t snag me right away, but I blame myself. I was still hungover from The Dig and wanted to read more about that! But it, too, was really well written, and engaging for the reader, as well. 4.5 Platypires
And then there were three! The Return pulled me back in, and everything was good again. Well, almost. Not so sure Mr. Turner and the gang would quite agree with me; not for the first bit, at any rate! This one is another 5 Platypires
All in all, I give the box set of Books 1-3, 5 Platypire
