Summary

On the threshold of womanhood. . . 
Tharcia in her quest to contact her deceased mother is swept into dark energies of the occult, and from there into a mind-mazing interplay of the Military, the Akashic Record, and Big Data. 
Next History by Lee Baldwin is a grown-up fantasy that arises from a central question: What would tomorrow be like if we knew our creation story as it really was, not verbally handed down over thousands of years? 
In these pages you'll see what happens when the Babylonian creation myth comes into the light, and when Tharcia summons a supernatural being into the world's biggest pentagram: The United States Pentagon. Oh, great, a supernal entity bent on her destruction. 
One girl against the Patriarchy? Those old dudes better watch their butts. A sizzling romantic thriller where a girl finds a guy who really counts. 
A dystopian fantasy epic from the heart of hope. 
Really worth reading. If you can imagine reading Neal Stephenson - before anyone much had heard of him and mix it with Good Omens - this might be that novel. ~ Megan (Ashland, OR USA) 
A unique voice in storytelling. Next History is humorous, a cliff hanger, a marvelous love story, and perfectly executed. ~ Ernie Smitty 
This is no fantasy. Baldwin fashions his story from myth, Biblical prophecy, astronomy, mysticism and human desire… a plausible extension of what we see as our reality today. ~ ArtOf Silence
