Khanan : Daydream & Awakening by Rohan Lockhart Summary
Intégrale Khanan Tome 1, Daydream : À l’âge de quinze ans, Kaeden a mystérieusement sombré dans le coma. Quand il se réveille, ses parents, sa chambre et son confort ont disparu pour laisser place à un territoire inconnu. Egaré dans un monde qui ne semble pas être le sien, il fera alors la rencontre d’un jeune homme nommé Noa. Ce dernier, prêtre du Pays de l’Eau, l’accompagnera tout au long de son voyage afin de l’aider à retrouver sa famille. Mais durant leur périple, un émoi inattendu viendra bouleverser le cœur de Kaeden. (À cheval entre GMO-Project et Le Pavillon des Chimères, Daydream est l'introduction de cette nouvelle saga aux travers des yeux d'un personnage de GMO-Project. L'histoire peut se lire indépendamment des deux sagas.) Tome 2, Awakening : Le jour de ses dix-huit ans, la vie de Kaeden bascule de nouveau, comme l’avait prédit la prophétie des Chimères. De retour sur Khanan, il ne retrouve plus l’univers calme et onirique qu’il avait découvert lors de son premier voyage. Il se réveille au Pays du Feu et constate que le monde est à l’aube d’une guerre. Kaeden devra braver de nombreux dangers afin de retrouver Noa et prendre une décision capitale pour son avenir. (Awakening, suite et fin de "Khanan", marque un tournant dans la duologie. Si le premier volume était doux, poétique et onirique, comme un conte initiatique, le récit d’Awakening dévoile une nouvelle facette de l'univers, plus sombre et réaliste.)

The Awakening by Jodine Turner Summary
The Goddess of the Stars and the Sea is awakened from Her dreamtime with the knowing that a change for humankind approaches. The final days of Atlantis are marked by deceit, lust, and greed. The once vibrant culture, blessed with advanced knowledge bestowed upon it by a race of star beings, now suffers with a corrupt governing body and a degenerate priesthood. The Goddess intervenes to assist humanity and calls upon the young priestess, Geodran, to be Her helper. Geodran struggles to fulfill a destiny larger than her own personal desires, a destiny bestowed upon her by her mother, the High Priestess Jaquine. In a moment of maternal desperation, Jaquine had promised her unborn child, Geodran, to the Goddess, in return for the baby's safe birth, thus sealing her daughter's fate. Geodran's journey is a heroic quest to bring forth the next era of human civilization. The Awakening is the first in the Goddess of the Stars and the Sea trilogy.

Revivals, Awakening and Reform by William G. McLoughlin Summary
In Revivals, Awakenings, and Reform, McLoughlin draws on psychohistory, sociology, and anthropology to examine the relationship between America's five great religious awakenings and their influence on five great movements for social reform in the United States. He finds that awakenings (and the revivals that are part of them) are periods of revitalization born in times of cultural stress and eventuating in drastic social reform. Awakenings are thus the means by which a people or nation creates and sustains its identity in a changing world. "This book is sensitive, thought-provoking and stimulating. It is 'must' reading for those interested in awakenings, and even though some may not revise their views as a result of McLoughlin's suggestive outline, none can remain unmoved by the insights he has provided on the subject."—Christian Century "This is one of the best books I have read all year. Professor McLoughlin has again given us a profound analysis of our culture in the midst of revivalistic trends."—Review and Expositor
