- New Science Fiction Fantasy Adventure Saga Guardians of the Crystals: The Osirion Connection Book On
New book published on Amazon gives a twist on ancient civilizations from our distant past.
Book Two in my Guardians of the Crystals series was published in early 2016. Presently working on book three to be released at the end of 2016.
Following The Osirion Connection, the adventure of the Guardians of the Crystals saga continues when Enkarath leaves for the rogue planet, Herculobus, to head a massive engineering project for the Osirion. He ends up betraying the love of his life, Deanu, in a complicated devious scheme in which he no power to control. Back on Earth, Deanu rekindles her friendship with E’jah which ends up intensifying into a complicated love triangle where once again, the beloved characters are fighting the forces of evil and control for domination of the Earth and all who inhabit it.
Two Osirion warships raced low over the Abzu, their thrusters glowing bright blue in the early hours before the dawn. The lead vessel bore the insignia of a golden serpent on its fuselage, deadly plasma cannons bristling across its metal skin. The second ship broke away, circled back a short distance and slowed down to hover in the low-lying cloud cover of the ancient mountain rising from the rocky plain. The first warship continued its path up the stony slope of the black peak, decelerating until it hovered in mid-air, a ships length above the talus covered ground. The earth split open, bright white light shooting upwards into the sky as the immense metal doors of the subterranean landing bay slid apart to allow the hovering craft to descend.
The warship landed heavily onto the rock floor of the landing bay, its metal struts clanging loudly while its engines powered down. An Osirion soldier sporting a golden serpent emblazoned across his chest armor, walked up to the ship to escort the newcomers. The hatch opened, allowing a metal stairway to slide to the ground with a loud thud. Waves of heat from the ships cooling engines flowed about the ship saturating the air with a distinctive metallic odour. Three heavily armed Osirion soldiers descended from the ship, approaching the lone soldier whom awaited them on the ground. The three men drew their plasma weapons and before the guard could react, the Osirion that had descended from the warship fired upon him simultaneously.
The three soldiers rapidly made their way over to one of the passageways that descended into the heart of the subterranean pyramid complex. Plasma weapons suddenly fired upon them as they entered the tunnel from across the landing area. The three men hugged the rock walls of the passage, firing their weapons in return at the four pursuing serpent faction Osirion soldiers that had followed them into the tunnel from the bay. Within moments, the three invading soldiers were dead. One of the complex’s guards advanced, verifying the armor of the immobile men. His cobalt eyes grew wide as he recognized the emblem of the golden eagle that decorated their metal chest plates.
“Igigi!” The soldier shouted to his men. “Get back to the landing bay!” He followed his men, running back to where they had come from. Bursting into the hanger, they fired upon a warship lifting off from the bay floor, its engines glowing hotly with blue fire. The unmistakable insignia of the golden-headed eagle painted across its fuselage. The vessel’s engines roared to full capacity as it shot into dawn’s first light. The soldiers watched helplessly as their own four warships burned in the hanger, including the ship that had landed earlier with the invaders. The engines destroyed by the plasma cannons of the ship that had just fled.
A young white-robed technician burst into the hanger, shouting at the soldiers, his large blue eyes wild with fear. “They took Jal’ara!”
