Leoros doesn't have many friends. As the son of a scientist and archeologist, he is constantly on the move. When his parents discover the mythic Emerald Tablet in an ancient city buried beneath Egypt’s desert sands, his world is suddenly turned upside down. He decodes the ancient text which leads him to a distant world.
On that world, a slave girl begins a journey towards a destiny she cannot imagine. But when an ancient foe rises from the ashes, they will be brought together by forces that neither understands.
Leoros, who dreams of being like the heroes in the comic books, must fight to unlock the secrets of the universe to save a people he never knew existed.
Atlantia, whose bloody visions wake her in the night, senses the darkness coming.
Together, they will face an enemy with the power of dark energy, lose a mentor to the assassin’s blade, and be betrayed by someone they trust. Their fight for the future is just beginning, and before it is over, a final sacrifice must be made. When the darkness comes, will they stand and fight or will they join it?
There is darkness in everyone.
Do you wish you could have the power of a god? Would you use it for good…or for evil?
Freaking cool! That is how all books like this should start. I mean odd names, glowing pillars, emerald tablets, ancient mythology, cult-like cultures- what more could one ask for?
I really enjoyed this book. It was well written. The plot was unique and original. The characters were well developed. I loved the character arcs. I felt like Josh really spent time getting to know his characters before he put his pen to paper.
There were twists and turns and each step of the way you connected with the characters. Josh threw unexpected plot twists at you and made you want to keep reading. I love the beginning and by the end I wanted to get my hands on the next one and read until there was a complete end. Even my husband had to borrow this one... meaning he snuck off with it and hoarded it in the car until he had read it and got caught putting it back. He loved it too.
I highly recommend this book. It's a great read for anyone looking for a new take on myths, adventure, action, alter-realities, and SO MUCH MORE! Pick it up today!!

Josh Silverman was born in Washington, DC. His family moved to Orange County, California when he was four years old and he was raised there. He grew up watching Star Trek, Star Wars, and other science fiction series with his family when he was young. Star Trek; The Next Generation was a ritual in his house. In his spare time, he collected a respectable collection of comic books and Magic: The Gathering cards. When he's not writing (or working in his day job to be able to write at night), he spends his time thinking about how to avoid traffic, what he's going to have for dinner, watching cheesy apocalyptic or King Fu movies, working out or reading.
