Adventure and ESP Create Unique Setting for Visionary Award-winning Novel, Mystic Warrior

Mystic Warrior: A Novel Beyond Time and Space won the 2005 Independent Publisher Book Award for Visionary Fiction at the 9th Annual IPPY Awards Celebration held June 3rd at BookExpo America in New York City. “Awareness of this reality is the first step to mastery,” says the new award-winning Deerfield Beach, Florida author Edwin Harkness Spina.

(PRWEB) June 22, 2005 -- Spina’s provocative novel draws upon his own personal experiences and combines politics, venture capital and mysticism in an insightful and totally unconventional way. Here’s an excerpt:

As Thorn sped west on Palmetto Park Road, he was grateful traffic was light that evening, allowing him to gain quickly on them.
   
Up ahead of him, a set of railroad warning lights began flashing. He could see Sophie’s car, followed not too far behind by the black truck. As she made it across the tracks, he prayed the approaching train would stop Raven; but he sped up just in time to get underneath the gates. Thorn pulled up to the tracks a few seconds later and was forced to sit there helplessly, as the long freight train rumbled by.
   
He banged the steering wheel with his fist, feeling trapped and as though he’d failed to protect his newfound teacher. "I’m the reason she’s in trouble! She was helping me and now she’s in danger! Damn!" he thought to himself. He closed his eyes and pictured her face, innocent of the danger. He prayed out loud, “Please, God let me warn her. Please let her be safe.”
“What is it?”
Thorn opened his eyes to find the source of the voice. It was Sophie, but he couldn’t see her.
“Where are you?” Thorn thought.
“I’m in my car. You saw me leave.”
It was her voice, he was sure of it—but how? “You can hear me?” he silently asked.
“You’re coming in clearly.”
“This is really happening?”
“What do you think?”
Waves of elation washed over him. “This is unbelievable.” In a flash, Thorn remembered why he needed to contact her. “Raven is after you!”

Mystic Warrior takes readers on a roller coaster of adventure as it immerses them in the life of a struggling entrepreneur caught up in political and foreign intrigue. The characters learn and practice the same advanced mystical and supernatural skills taught in legendary secret societies. Mystic Warrior provides meaning, insight and hope for a humanity struggling to find spiritual solutions to today's problems.

Mystic Warrior will broaden your understanding of reality. It takes place in a world where psychic abilities and spiritual powers are used by both ordinary people and those at the highest levels of world leadership.

Can it really happen? Is it really happening right now?

“Look around,” says Spina. “People everywhere are striving to understand what’s going on. Selfless mystics are operating behind the scenes to influence events. Awareness of this reality is the first step to mastery.”
