"This is the novel for which thousands of 'Star People' all over the world have been waiting -- only they will know from their personal experiences with the 'Others' that Lauren Zimmerman's provocative work is fact, not fiction!"

Brad Steiger, author of 'Starborn' and 'UFO Odyssey'

"This is a very important piece of work, coming as it does during a time of great change in our world and our acceleration towards the heavens of other worlds.  Many of us have not overlooked the significance of events occurring on Earth itself, which includes the thousands of UFO reports from all parts of the globe.  We have had to wait until now for the first cracks to appear in our government's secrecy surrounding the subject.  As we move into the 21st century, the French and British governments admit that there are objects in our skies suggesting something or someone has 'Called"."

As I read through this book, it became apparent that there was such resonance to the story that it did more than cement the story into place but registered an eerie kind of message to us.

"Current scientific findings and technological advances bring us to a place where we should be thinking constructively about our wider future in the universe.  Visions cast today will undoubtedly become reality sometime in our tomorrows.  CALLED is a book to be enjoyed, but it shouldn't be taken too lightly either.

"A great read, this book will deeply touch people who have had unexplained experiences and who continue to suffer in silence, rather than chance rejection by friends and colleagues.  All thinking people will feel the timing of the material.  CALLED did not arrive on our bookshelves a day too soon."

Colin Andrews, author of "Circular Evidence"

and President of Circles Phenomenon Research International

"Drama, suspense, humor and wisdom:  CALLED has it all.  Packed with profound spiritual truth, it's a 'must read' for metaphysicians and ET buffs alike."

Tony Stubbs, author of 'An Ascension Handbook'

"CALLED ... appeals to both adults and young adults ... Many will enjoy it as a wonder-filled tale ... for some -- those often called 'wanderers' or 'starpeople' -- it will affirm their sense of identity and purpose here and 'elsewhere.'"

Jody Boyne, Librarian, University of Hawaii and Transhuman Counseling Psychologist'

"CALLED incorporates many themes ... ufology and ufo crash recoveries, ET contact, and expanding human awareness ... Most unique is the fact that the author has articulated her personal interpretations of Truth, Soul, and Existence/Experiences, finding ways to express her knowledge of each by weaving specific insights and awakenings into her unusual, engrossing plotline."

Paul Davids, Executive Producer/Co-Writer, "Roswell"

and Producer/Writer/Director, "Starry Night"

"CALLED is the first in a new fictional series by Lauren Zimmerman entitled "OTHER WORLDS: The Series."  This much anticipated first entry focuses on the 'Star People,' other-worlders living as humans to help bring about universal change and harmony.  According to Zimmerman, there are many humans today who strongly believe they are from another world.  They have no doubt that they are here to serve as emissaries for a new relationship between earth and the worlds beyond our own.  CALLED is the story of one such young man, Paul, who discovers why he has always felt so disconnected in life.  On impulse, he travels to Arizona where he meets his destiny in the form of a cripples space craft.  Paul and his friends struggle to protect their small charges from interference by the military.  The humans and aliens discover a profound kinship beginning an adventure of the heart.  Sometimes, says this story, the calling of the heart is so strong and clear that, even if it seems impossible to others, the feelings must be followed.  CALLED is well written and will capture the imagination.  Presented as fiction, CALLED could very well be more about fact.  Look for this and future books in her series.

CONCEPTS MAGAZINE, Volume 2, Issue 42, May/June 2001

".....CALLED, a fascinating metaphysical novel written by author, Lauren Zimmerman, described as 'mystic, author, artist' and creator of a series of books.....For those who loved 'Bringers of the Dawn,' enjoyed ET (the movie), and entertain the possibilities of other intelligence in the universe, this is for you!  Well written and easy to read, this adventure tale touches upon many metaphysical subjects and spiritual truths."

Ocean Unity Book Club, Newport, Oregon

"CALLED is a spellbinding account of a young man who is a spirit/alien from another world who has taken over a body on this planet and grown up as a human with no recollection of his prior life.  He is, as a young adult, then drawn to complete his mission.  CALLED weaves a provocative story that reviewers are comparing to 'The Celestine Prophecy' in its ability to be spiritually moving and instructive...."

South Lincoln County News, Waldport, Oregon

"This is a tale of intrigue, suspense, and mystery.  A young man, Paul, has recurring dreams that disturb and mystify him of beings and places he can't remember but feels he knows.  On an impulse he takes a trip to the high-mountain area of northern Arizona, and in Flagstaff meets a man who will change his life.

Paul is led to trust this man, Marlen, who takes him on a journey near Payson, Arizona where they are called upon to rescue three alien beings from a spacecraft that has crashed near their campsite.  What appears to be coincidence is, of course, much more than it seems and an adventure of high daring and mystical awakening begin for Paul........

CALLED is in the same category as 'The Celestine Prophecy' in that it imparts valuable spiritual information in a fiction/sci-fi format.  But I found the information in CALLED more advanced than anything I had read before, besides its being an exciting and spellbinding adventure."
