Summary of the Book:
When Dorothy Dizon meets the mysterious Adrian Rosario and his alluring knowledge of Filipino history, her life takes an unchartered detour. Dorothy’s true calling is connected to the hidden history of the Philippines that Adrian must protect to keep her safe from enemies of his beloved secret society.

Enlightenment, Book One of The Bathala Series explores the forgotten history of the Philippines through the first-person perspectives of Filipino characters who walk the precipice between friendship and love.
My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. I have to honestly say that this book confused me from the get go. I did not have any previous knowledge of Filipino history or folk lore. I think that this book was written with the idea that those who would would have some of that information already. It was an okay written story, but it did take me sometime to work my way through this book and re-reading it did little to get read of my confusion.
My Rating of the Book: 3 Stars
