Alastair Ramsden, a youth in medieval Scotland, abruptly meets his Spirit Guide David to view his early life unfold from the Akashic Records. There, he processes the incredible journey he took from child to young adult, reliving hardships during a time of war and incessant tribulation that conditioned him and led to this ultimate crossing.
From the brutal death of his father, his own survival in the face of adversity, plus the many extraordinary events that occurred before entering the 4th-dimensional kingdom of Akasha, all of them combine to deliver an extraordinary tale of against-the-odds, self-discovery and spiritual awakening.
In Longevity: The Awakening, award-winning author Caleb Smith, enthralls with a stunning, coming of age, YA novel that is sure to linger in the imagination well after the last page is turned.

I requested this ARC because of the author being local to me. I was intrigued by the premise of the story, but was hesitant that it might be too young of a read for me. With that being said, I thought this novel was wonderfully written. The story played out well and left me excited to real more from this author and this world. I rated it a 3.5 to 4 star rating.
