Two babies, connected through a dimension of love and light, have come to enable the earth's population to ascend to the next level of consciousness in the intriguing novel, The Alters (We Live in Many Mansions) by Ian Lenathen. Brought into the world at the same moment, Adam and Sarah split into two beings in a burst of light and are born over a thousand miles apart. Born to separate families, both children are recognizably above average from an early age. Adam is a musical genius, creating music by emulating the energy particles and waves he sees to express and elevate the world he observes. Sarah is an empathic and psychic savant who applies her abilities to heal and comfort the emotional wounds of those around her. Always aware of each other on the other realm, Adam and Sarah cultivate their talents to fulfill their destiny as catalysts of change while waiting for the day when they once again unite. Will the world be ready for them?

A profound literary novel, The Alters (We Live in Many Mansions) by Ian Lenathen is a stunning depiction of quantum physics that is informative as well as thought-provoking. Thoroughly describing the nature and behavior of matter and energy on the atomic and subatomic level, the story moves between the viewpoints of the two main characters as they reveal how quantum mechanics work and how everything in the universe is connected. Woven into the fascinating storyline are scientific details concerning theoretical physics and the four classes of phenomena. With several discussions folded within the plot explaining quantum mechanic theories, it is an entertaining way to learn and understand our planet's transcendence from this realm into the next. I recommend it to everyone who enjoys spiritually uplifting stories with the bonus of physics principles. A word of caution, there are explicit sex scenes that render the story more suitable for a more mature reader.
