What I love about my fantasy series is the ability to explore various mythologies, such as the Ancient Egyptians, and the theory that they had some connection with aliens. The theory goes that aliens visited thousands of years ago and organised the building of the pyramids, which were lined up with points in space that perhaps showed the way to the alien civilisation. Now, I am not suggesting that any of this is true, but it makes great material for a fantasy narrative. Therefore, in the third book of my series The Nine Worlds of Mirrortac, the book I have titled The Gold Sarcophagus, the ancient god associated with the sun, Ra, is resurrected from his sarcophagus deep in the Mediterranean Sea, and redevelops his plan, as part of a master race of aliens, to take control of a now modern world. His race is comprised of two types of human-like beings — the regular two-eyed people, and those with three eyes.
Ra’s rise coincides with an event on one of two other linked planets and awakens his tresoculi (three-eyed) brethren on his home planet where there is a revolutionary uprising that had been in planned for some time, and kept secret from their duoculi (two-eyed) opposites who had been blissfully unaware of any threat.
This begins a chain of events which involves the alien Uranian (Universal Guardians) races, my erfin characters and their friends, and the people of Nerthule (Earth). Ra uses the power of gem crystals to mesmerise the population of Nerthule as well as uplift a hidden metal pyramid that has the power to transmit his thoughts and electric energy throughout the world. I base the pyramid on a Tesla theory that such a structure can create huge amounts of energy.
A war against Ra and his league of tresoculi hinges on the placement of the last Stone of Destiny, which when brought together with the other two stones, will destroy them and undo the power that Ra has through the triad arrangement of the stones on their respective planets.
Another aspect of mythology also ties in with Ra, and that is of Atlantis, which sunk to the bottom of the Mediterranean Sea thousands of years ago.
This last book of the series is to date (July 2017) in Beta mode for readers to give their feedback. A cover design has already been created by Irish graphic artist Michael Lenehan. Look out for this exciting finale to the series in the months to come.
Mirrortac then experienced memories of three lives as females, each taking them further back into the ancestry of erfins. Strife was ever-present between the clans as they vied against one another, ruled then by powerful maja-taks who reigned through the use of strong spells. The lands were themselves rent with unrest and upheaval; mountains of fire brought terror and the Monsters-of-the-Deep-Earth rampaged and devastated the world. Finally, the moment of confirmation came as Mirrortac looked through the eyes of his second life as an Uzdree maja-tak whose name was Harka. The uzdree had settled in well wooded lands south of Yidrogh where the Great Numbness had divided the world. Harka experimented with new spells as did other maja-taks of the clan-race and there was competition between them. The rivalry, friendly at first, grew more intense as the maja-taks sought more freedom to exercise their newfound spells. The clan elders objected to the use of the new spells and arguments were heated. In a daring show of defiance, the maja-taks overthrew the clan elders and sent them and the clan-master into exile. Arguments broke out between the maja-taks on who should be leader and the Uzdree were split, forming the Urdin and the Madree. Relations between the two clan-races became frayed as the power game continued. The Madree finally gained control and formed into a powerful ruling clan-race which still ruled in Mirrortac’s third life as a female Madree called Loreel.
