Outremer lll: In The Beginning

D. N. Carter
outremer 3: in the beginning
For Alisha and Paul, their lives settle into a new routine of normality… but the world around them is changing rapidly and that calm routine is violently interrupted. Whilst Paul strives to learn as much as he can about the mysteries in Egypt, new people enter their lives that have direct, immediate and profound affects upon them and the direction they will follow. As confusion grows about their own beliefs so does whom they can trust. As mysteries from the past stretch out calling them, they have to make decisions that not only affect their lives, but the lives of countless thousands both then and now. The decisions they made helped shape the course of history.
Confronted by impossible choices and in making those decisions, they experience at first hand the painful realities and repercussions that threaten to destroy them completely as personal tragedies rip through their lives as a direct consequence. As friends become foes, and foes become friends, nothing will ever be the same again as explosive revelations about mankind’s true past and the Church are divulged that once learned can never be unlearned or forgotten… for truth once whispered, is still truth which only grows louder no matter how hard evil forces try to control and suppress it with fear, hate and war; forces Paul will have to confront head on in order to protect and safeguard a greater secret and legacy destined for all of us in or time.

Top Five Books I Absolutely Love

by D. N. Carter

All of my Top Five Books are International best sellers in their own rights nowadays, but the first two were not so when I first read them back in the late 1970’s.
1: ‘The Great Pyramid Decoded’ by Peter Lemesurier.
This is undoubtedly my number one book of the Top Five Books I absolutely love. This book set me upon a path of research and discovery that changed the very direction and course of my life. Peter was a Cambridge-trained modern linguist, teacher and professional translator. I first read this book, whilst living in Cyprus. Having visited the Great Pyramid, I had a deep sense that it was not just simply a single tomb for a Pharaoh, so when I saw this book squeezed between two volumes in the New Age section of the library I thought it had been placed there incorrectly; I simply had to take a closer look. Having a great love of castles, ancient ruins and tombs, I liked the drawings I saw inside…I was not so keen on all the mathematics and geometry I saw but decided I would read it, for I felt it possibly held some truths. And indeed it did as this turned out to be the one most significant book I have ever read. It covered everything and hinted at so much more. To my surprise I also discovered that I actually understood it all…my school friends thinking I had lost the plot when I tried to engage them in discussions about it. Peter was a world authority on Nostradamus, which led me to research him also, which in turn sent me in many directions of research. Many years later I became friends with Peter and his guidance and advice proved incalculable. Book II of Outremer is dedicated to him. He sadly passed away in 2016.
2: ‘The Sirius Mystery’ by Robert Temple.
I read this after reading the Great Pyramid Decoded. It had just been published and I liked the look of the cover artwork. It was academically presented and looked incredibly daunting upon my initial perusal having secured it from the library. I had only just turned thirteen years of age and my brother joked that it was far too difficult to read let alone understand. My initial reaction was that he was probably correct. I faltered and put it aside and read Chariots of the Gods instead which had lots of photographs and drawings. That was easy to read and captured my imagination. Upon completion I was drawn back to The Sirius Mystery, but I have to say with a greater sense of determination to read it…not only that, but understand it. This book made me ask many questions about our origins and also to look again at our myths, which I loved, especially ancient Greek ones, in a totally different light. I did not accept everything as absolutely correct in the book, but it made look deeper and further into various subjects I had never contemplated before. They included astronomy, science, physics and chemistry. It was a life changing read in many ways and acted like a bridge between The Great Pyramid Decoded and Chariots of the Gods. It was the start of a very personal journey that ultimately led to many more specialist areas of research ranging from esoteric mysteries, medieval history to quantum physics…which in turn directly influenced the content of Outremer series of books.
3: ‘Chariots of the Gods’ by Eric von Daniken.
I loved this book because it was so easy to read; not at all complicated or full of long words I had no idea what they meant like the two previous books mentioned above. The basic premise of the book was Eric’s absolute belief that aliens came to Earth many thousands of years ago and left evidence proving so. This fascinated me, and was the reason why I often ended up sitting outside in my garden late at night with my father’s binoculars, telescopes and cameras studying the stars above. Cyprus had perfectly clear skies for this. I secretly hoped I’d see a UFO…but didn’t. As said, I loved this book but something did not ring as totally true…that aliens were responsible. I had a deep sense that a lot of what was covered was in fact down to our very own, but highly advanced, ancestors who had reached a higher level of civilisation than we give them credit for. The evidence is certainly there in physical form, but also encoded within myths and religion. In Outremer I reveal but a part of that information which can all be checked and verified.
4: ‘The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail’ by Michael Baigent, Richard Leigh and Henry Lincoln.
I read this book from start to finish on a military exercise whilst stuck in an old farmhouse in Germany. A lot of the information presented within it has come under severe scrutiny and generated a lot of controversy since the books release but has also inspired other international best sellers, such as Dan Browns ‘The Da Vinci Code’. The basic outline of Dan Browns book is about the survival of a blood line directly from Jesus himself. His children no less and their subsequent lineage up the present day, but the research behind the story was mainly taken from The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail. This book fuelled my deep interest in all matters relating to the Crusades, Holy Grail legends and Knights Templar.
5: ‘Peanuts’ by Charles M Schultz.
What can I say about the iconic Peanuts books with Charlie Brown and Snoopy? I collected nearly all of the books in the series. Still have them at my parent’s home. They gave a genuine and profound insight into real life. Invaluable advice in a humorous format.
