the spellbinding new trilogy from the author of the bestselling Ancient Future. Mia Montrose is a 21st-century Australian woman with a Doctorate in Ancient Languages who has just scored the most promising job of her career. When Mia experiences mysterious happenings and forces beyond her control, she begins to understand that history does not always stay in the past. Ashlee Granville is a 19th-century clairvoyant, forced to suppress her talents as she enters the marriage market of English upper-class society. But Ashlee is not a girl who likes to bow to the inevitable - she has plans of her own. Lillet du Lac is a 13th-century woman, priestess of an ancient order now protected by the Cathar faith, who are making their last stand against the Roman Catholic Franks at the giant hill fort of Montsegur. As the castle falls, Lillet escapes with something more valuable than any of their lives ...Despite the time, distance and cultures that separate them, these women have several things in common. they belong to an ancient bloodline of Grail kings, protected by a Sion knight named Albray, and they are each compelled to visit an ancient mountain in the Sinai. this mountain contains the keys which may unlock a gateway to a dimension of light and the Gene of Isis.

I am hooked and love the 3 tales interwoven through time. Drawing heavily on the grail mythology of the Holy Blood and the Holy Grail ,and the themes of her other trilogies of Druidic and Faery Mysticism. The first book in the new series is captivating.

The 3 women whom hte story centres around are vividly drawn and seem more human and real than Harding's other trilogy heroine Tori. Ashlee is clairvorant that has trust issues, Lillet is a priestess that is caught up ion her own importance and Mia is a sceptic that only believes in some of what is going on. I found myself arguing with these ladies, feeling happy when they are happy and wanting to continue on with their adventure.

Well, it was good, but not that good.

I have always enjoyed Traci Harding's work, particularly her emphasis on the sacred feminine. However, while this book was imaginative and very descriptive, I'm afraid I simply could not connect with her characters. Ashlee, in particular, seemed too good to be true, and I felt rather as though there were not enough humanity in her to counterbalance the spiritual. It is hard to empathize with someone who is virtually perfect, and the "coincidental" love story didnt help!

That being said, however, it is clear that Harding is very knowledgable about her subject and dedicated to the understanding of psychic power and the Grail lore. Her writing was clear and stylish, although a little blunt at times, with a hint too much telling and not enough showing. I enjoyed her depiction of Albray and the mysterious Grail guardians, and her ideas about the "Gene of Isis" were strikingly original.

Overall, an entertaining read. I will certainly look forward to more from the "Mystique" trilogy.
