It is the 23rd Century
Humanity is on the verge of extinction
An adventure 11,000 years in the making
When the Empire of the First Ones fell, they left behind wonders so advanced it made all the spacefaring races look like primitives. Any warring race able to find these advanced technologies exploit it would become galactic rulers. Their lost locations wiped clean from the pages of history and long since forgotten.
Alec Shackleton and his partner Dancer, a cobalt blue android centaur, penetrate a hot war zone, bust through a planetary defense system, and breaks into a museum. In celebration of their discovery they travel to their favorite watering hole. Alec is well known for his willingness to pay for information on the lost Eleven Wonders of the Universe. During negotiations for a treasure map, Alec’s attention is captured by the beautiful slave girl he did not know. He knew most of the human community for there were less than 20,000 and she was not one of them. The extinction level event of 2267 wipes all life from the surface of the earth. Alec left with the treasure map in hand and the slave girl at his side.
This is the first book of Lost Wonder Series. Book two is in the works!
[…] the scenes are very vivid and creatively drawn. You will actually want to be in the ancient library, and be marveled at what the gorgeous land of King Coetus would look life if your eyes could see them. Also, the tense scenes of confrontation and escape are very detailed without coming across as didactic. The writer makes every scene dance across the page in a manner that keeps you entirely absorbed.
If anyone else out there loves a well written sci-fi tale with a unique plot, intriguing characters, and a protagonist that is worthy of applause, I suggest downloading this book. Like me, you may find yourself without much sleep, but you’ll definitely be entertained.
