New Fiction Heralds Refreshing Plot about Psychic Wisdom

Share Article

Visionary author CB Anslie revisits Jewish symbolisms and brings them to life.

“Children of Light” is an intuitive book that links its readers to certain Biblical connotations about Jewish practices and beliefs during the early Israeli civilization. Today, Masada is the most popular tourist destination in Israel and it’s one of the Jewish people’s greatest symbols. Despite this seemingly-frivolous, modern fact, what is most intriguing about this place is its history – for disturbingly enough it is the eerie setting of 960 accounts of Jewish mass suicide in first century C.E. Author CB Anslie showcases her highly-imaginative talent in personifying her character’s paranormal traits. Gifted with, not only the profound knowledge of Biblical references but also with the eloquent expression of one’s spirituality, she vividly illustrates engaging scenes that may appeal even to the creative minds in the movie industry. Outstanding and well-thought out, this book is synonymous to Dan Brown’s epic series.

“I have this ability to see things; I have visions. Mostly my visions are about things that happened in the past. The women in my father’s family have a long history of this ability which they call the ‘sight’. And, recently, I have started having these visions. My father’s family views these abilities as a gift; something that I should try to explore and use to do some good. My mother calls it all hocus-pocus; she thinks it is evil. She doesn’t want me to use it. She doesn’t really believe I have it.” – CB Anslie

A rabbi with a secret will surrender his life in an incomprehensible battle against evil, while his friend, a priest with a dark past, wrestles personal demons. The priest is called upon to prevent a divorce and comfort grieving widows as he attempts to unravel the mysteries of Masada with its deep connections to a family’s unique prophetic heritage. The priest must confront the truth about his own connections to an ancient race when the responsibility falls onto him to take up the torch as the next keeper of the Light.

“Children of Light” will be featured at the New York Library Association Book Exhibit in Saratoga Springs, NY on November 2-5, 2011.
