The Fourth Awakening Chronicles (Book I)
The Fourth Awakening - Rod Pennington
Genre - New Age Spirituality
Rating - Pg13
Price - $.99
Chronicles is a series of short Novellas based on the characters and concepts explored in the full-length novel "The Fourth Awakening." The story picks up where the second novel in The Fourth Awakening series, "The Gathering Darkness", leaves off. While each Chronicle is a stand-alone episode that can be read independently, it is a part of a much larger and continuing story.

Pulitzer Prize winning reporter Penelope Drayton Spence is seeking to interview people who have arrived at the Fourth Awakening either through their own efforts or having it thrust on them unwittingly. With no noticeable outward changes, these people are difficult to identify and even harder to convince to talk about their experiences. The problem for Penelope is that when she can locate a potential candidate they have a nasty habit of simply vanishing. 

The goal of each Chronicle is to present an Enlightened “Archetype,” and explore its characteristics. The archetypes are derived from and based on research conducted by the book’s second-author, Jeffery A. Martin, that involved over a thousand of these individuals worldwide. More about that research project can be found at:

In the first Chronicle we meet a professional gambler in Las Vegas, Daniel Wooten. He is a middle-aged, confirmed bachelor with no religious moorings. Wooten has never meditated, hasn’t been in a church in decades and hadn’t shown the slightest interest in his spiritual side until the moment he found himself enlightened. 

The Fourth Awakening by Rod Pennington & Jeffery A. Martin has been the Amazon Kindle #1 Bestseller in “New Age > Mysticism” in the US for over three consecutive years. It has also been #1 in the UK in “Thought & Practice > Mysticism” for over two years.

Book 1 - BEYOND
Meghan is 16 when she dies.
She wakes up on a flying steamboat on her way to a school run by Angels in a white marble castle.
On the boat she meets Mick who has been dead for more than a hundred years but still looks like a teenager. He helps her past the difficult beginning at the new school in a new world filled with magic.
One day some of Meghan's roommates find a mirror in the cellar of the school and they persuade her to go through it with them - well knowing it is strictly against the rules of the school. Meghan ends up back on earth where she meets Jason. But Jason is in danger and Meghan knows something important. Something that is a matter of life and death. Soon she is forced to choose between the two worlds. The one she belongs to now and the one she left.

- Willow Rose definitely keeps you on the edge of your seat. She balanced fantasy and intense emotion brilliantly. I highly recommend it to anyone that enjoys the paranormal. - Fictitious Musings

- I loved this book! It was really good and just warm with a touch of darkness to it (...) It's good stuff! - That Chick That Reads

- Death & Life meet with a twist. Definitely worth a read - Becky's Barmy Book Blog

It is Meghan's second year at The Academy.

While trying to help and care for Jason on earth she is struggling to keep up in school, where they this year will learn both to ride Pegasus' and fly through severe storms. Meanwhile Mick is becoming more than a friend to her and soon she finds herself facing the unavoidable choice.

But something evil is threatening the students at the Academy and Meghan is no longer safe within the walls of the castle. Something causes several of the students to be caught in the middle of a nightmare, that they can't wake up from.

Soon they realize that they might have a traitor in their midst.

This was a wonderful sequel. Every bit as good as the first book in the series. Now on to the third one - I am really excited to see what happens next. I can recommend this to anyone who enjoys a good paranormal romance. /Goodreads

Meghan's training at the Academy is coming to an end. Everything is going great as she comes closer to graduation. She is engaged to be married and the wedding is near when she hears some disturbing news that makes her rethink her future.

In class the students are learning to catch dreams and fly with the speed of light. Meghan soon discovers her special talents and that she is much stronger than she thought. But unfortunately that doesn't help her as she faces the truth about her own death, which will be revealed to her at the end of the year.

Endurance is the third book in Willow Rose's Afterlife series about a young girl's life after death.

I hope there will be more in this series because I have enjoyed getting to know Meghan and her friends, Mick, Jason, and the teachers at the Academy.

On the seventeenth of May 1982, a baby girl was found in an abandoned stolen car, on the bridge of a dam. 

This is Lotus' story: from the abuse by her adoptive father, several foster homes and care homes. She finds unlikely allies in petty criminals, but her life of crime extends much further than they ever realise.
When death occurs who would ever suspect the shy little girl who nobody wants?

On the seventeenth of May 1982, an infant girl of only a few hours old was found in an abandoned stolen car, on the bridge of a dam. Abandoned for no one, for no one came to claim her as their child, no one came to say that they were responsible for this babe, no one came to love her. This was how it was to be, always. 

The police called her ‘Lotus’ after the Lotus Esprit her life was discovered in. ‘Ogden’ after the dam the car rested over on that day. Lotus Ogden was named and a person.

Lotus tells us the story of her short life, from the abuse at the hands of her adoptive father, to the several foster families, children's homes and detentions. She finds unlikely allies in car thieves and drug dealers but her life of crime extends so much further than any of them ever realise.

So very young, she takes her first life and realises how easy it was, and how no-one would ever suspect the poor, timid, shy little girl who nobody calls their own.
