More than 3,200 years ago, a learned dwarf was pricked with the Sleeping Thorn and fell into a deep slumber in a secret cave somewhere on Earth. When he finally awoke, towards the end of 2009 or in the early part of 2010, he started to carry out the task he was charged with by his king: to reveal the truth about a hidden chapter of our past, that misunderstood period of our history when the so-called “gods” held sway over the world. He wrote an amazing book about this subject, a book that throws a completely new light on world history and human existence: Message from a Hidden Past.

According to the author, the gods were neither supernatural beings nor products of the human imagination, let alone extraterrestrials. He describes them as hominids of flesh and blood, belonging to the further evolved species of Homo supersapiens. They were smarter, taller, and much more beautiful than humans. They were the true founders of civilization. The book explains their origins, describes their culture, and pictures the land in which they lived. Most revealing, it relates how the gods became involved with humans and the disastrous consequences of that fateful interaction.

The dwarf recounts the story of a great world war that took place at the end of the Bronze Age and of an epic calamity that finally extinguished the Era of the Gods. Despite their physical destruction, the lore and images of the gods lived on in human poetry, song, and myth. The book’s last chapters deal with what remains of them today, and discuss ancient prophecies that foretell their return at an uncertain date in the future.

{My Thoughts} – I agreed to do this review because I thought the book seemed to be more interesting then it was. However, I was incorrect. It is piled high with a lot of information that mostly went over my head. It seemed like I was reading homework for school and I wasn’t absorbing any of the content. This book is well written, don’t get me wrong but it had so much information clogging up its pages that I couldn’t get into it one bit. The only good thing that came out of completing this book was that I was finally through reading something that lacked the pull books usually offer me that keep me involved and interested in the story within it’s pages. If you like historical facts and want to read a different take on how history had taken place then this is the book for you, however, it was not the book for me. I do appreciate being given the opportunity to read and review it for the author, despite my not enjoying the book to it’s fullest potential.
