Casper is living a sad life in a prison located on a desert planet named Karata with a wife that cares nothing for him and shames him daily. He may not be an Adonis and his temper usually finds him trouble, but he wants to be free of his current situation and escape into a beautiful world.
He discovers a crystal haphazardly through a mining accident he was involved in and learns about some of its abilities. The crystal finds its way into his body in an unusual manner that results in making him unwell for a time. He finds the crystal can transport him to another world far from the one he lives in. The life he has is not what he wishes, and that includes making a new start somewhere without his cheating immoral wife.
There are other people with other crystals with unusual properties like the one Casper has. Nadika, a carnival owner’s daughter and Jayani, an Eco preserve warden, among others. The crystals are attached to a world known in legend as Lemuria, and as these people explore their crystals they unsuspectingly unleash forces that contributed to the collapse of civilization in the past.
Perhaps your interests run into ancient myth. Where is the elusive Atlantis? Did it actually exist? These questions play a role in a bigger picture. They lend themselves as a catalyst for some to explore the pages of history. They make discoveries and further embrace the legendary worlds buried beneath the crust of antiquity.
That is how I felt as I read this book. The entire legend and prospect of Lemuria unearths a type of excitement on par with Indiana Jones even though it is fantasy.
Each character introduced through the pages of this novel is well fleshed out for the reader. Every detail about their lives from their religion, dress, habitat and traditions each element contributes to a well-defined and visualized character that is enjoyable to learn more about. When I was done, I felt as if I knew these people.
That is when a book has done its job. The writing of this book leaps from the pages and gets into your mind as surely as if you met the cast of characters in person.
Would I recommend this book? Yes, I would! I shall not reveal more about it here. I say read the book to learn more. You won’t be disappointed.
