HIDDEN MOUNTAIN & KING SOLOMON'S JOURNEY by Sammy Sutton



The second book in the Dominguez Adventures, Hidden Mountain, is packed with enough adventure, history, factual, and mythical elements to delight any reader.



So deeply does she take us into the hearts and minds of her characters Antonio Dominguez and Amanda Messenger that you feel like they are dearly loved family and you want to protect and help them. The mixture of the legend of King Solomon, with the political events that we see happening in our world today, brings mysticism and reality together in a spell binding tale.

By sending a special envoy that will briefly inhabit a specific location on the other side of the world, in what would one day become America. King Solomon sets the stage for the tribes of Israel to unite in all the holy centers of the earth, thereby giving them a chance to save the world.

Antonio and Amanda take us on a breathtaking adventure through the political landscape of today, and the divine world of legend. It is so well researched and written, by Sammy Sutton, it totally captures you. Making it all of it not only possible, but probable by the time you are finished.

I held my breath waiting for this book after reading the first in the series, King Solomon's Journey. Hidden Mountain, like its predecessor, left me once again biting at the bit for the next book in the series.

Review by: Author Marta Moran Bishop



If you like books that have realistic characters who can spout knowledge because they have the age, education, attitude and outlook to have believably done those things, then KSJ is the perfect book for you.
Sammy Sutton has taken the bones of King Solomon's Journey and refitted all the muscle and sinew into a fabulous read! The initial meat of the story is the same; yet, the dynamics, the rich text and sensual flow have been rearranged, rewritten and now fully encompass the detailed character lives. King Solomon's Journey is a story of the opposing outlooks of a clinical, scientific anthropologist, Antonio Dominguez and his realistic and beautiful new partner, the mystical and spiritual Amanda Messenger. As they join together to understand the messages left for those of our generation by the magical and wise King Solomon of old, they must overcome thinking within the box, throw the flaps wide and jump whole-heartedly into the world of the other-worldly!
With dialogue that sets the fast pace of discovery, scenes that draw you into the private and often times quite sensual debates on the validity of the Scrolls Message, the entire book leaves you with that sense of completion that only comes with complete satisfaction!
Read it and see, you will find laughter, tears, magic, suspense, drama, sensual interludes, past-present-future chaos, Native American mysticism, male and female interaction that is true to their genders, spiritual healing, faith and hope, and you will find lives that allow you to live and move vicariously through them with ease and pleasure!
