Welcome to Book Lovers Paradise

Welcome to my attempt at blogging. I am a true to heart bibliophile. Here I will discuss and review books as I read them. You are welcome to do the same. The only rules are no profanity, no politics, no religion, and have fun!

about the book:

Leoros doesn't have many friends. The son of a scientist and archeologist, he is constantly on the move. But when his parents make a startling discovery in Egypt, Leoros' world is turned upside down.


Do you wish you could have the power of a god? Would you use it for good…or for evil?

When an archeologist discovers the mythic Emerald Tablet buried beneath Egypt’s desert, her son decodes the ancient text leading 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 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.

My thoughts:
YIKES!  Page one- a father choking the life out of his 6 six old daughter, asking her if she knows hate and rage!!  This book starts with a bang and never stops.  It is a wonderful, gripping tale of good vs evil.  The characters are charismatic and lifelike.  (I think I felt hands on my neck while reading the opening lines!)

This book has it all, sci fi, fantasy, MYTHOLOGY (my favorite) and something to appeal to everyone.

The 'worlds' are somewhat difficult to follow, but once you get an understanding of the bigger picture, it becomes easier to follow.

This is the first of a series.  Hurry up Joshua and write more!!
