The Antikythera Mechanism - an ancient Greek artefact found at the turn of the 20th Century near the island of Antikythera - believed to have been made by Archimedes - it is a machine that calculates and displays the movements of many celestial bodies in our night sky, and predicts the precise time of each lunar and solar eclipse.
The idea that time is woven - the second instal of the series is called The Time Weavers.
The challenge that any life form that did actually exist, would be vastly different [and often assumed to be vastly superior] to us.
Black Moon Rising is [as is the whole series] a #LGBT romance-laced science fiction epic, which majors on the core relationships in the story just as much as it encompasses the technology, aliens, origins & nature of Time and Space, and wormholes.
Black Moon Rising - introduction
We are not alone. A fact that few are party to ... until a cataclysm begins to unravel the threads of the lies that have been told for millennia. Caught up in events of which they have little understanding, Meredith and Caleb are catapulted to the bleeding edge of their personal galaxy and come to understand some of its mysteries. While Jonathan - a pawn in the game of Universal domination, and Bakar - a captive off-worlder, learn to trust each other in hopes of fleeing their pursuers and finding a way for Bakar to return to his native world of Mia Via. Meantime, Phaeton and Craig - outcasts - plot to bring the powers that be to their knees, and unleash the power to travel the Universe at will. And in the background, an enemy - as old as the Universe itself - is beginning to rally its allies and wage war against the citizens of the Centum Path - all for the absolute control of a single, rare commodity - gold.
Black Moon Rising thrusts the reader straight into the heart of the lives of three couples, through whom, we learn the nature of Space, Time and the meaning of Life ... and love.
Chapter One can be read here - excerpt
I cannot yet give you an accurate date for the release of Book 2 - I would very much hope that it lands sometime during the summer of 2016.
I really hope that you enjoy the story - and, by the way, the 99 cent price is permanent and not an introductory offer.
