"Seriously one of the greatest things I've ever read." - Wil Wheaton, actor and author, via Twitter
"A keeper! I read four or more books a week and only occasionally will I get pulled into the rest of the series but this one has done it. Really good writing and a great story with real characters. Can't wait to see what happens." - John H. Scarbrough, Amazon reviewer
"I couldn't put it down! I bought the sequel within minutes of finishing this one. Lucian supports his fictional adventure with cutting-edge science in a manner that entertains as it educates his audience." Robert Briggs, Amazon reviewer
In 50 hours, the world as we know it will end... Like a celestial alarm clock, the sun is about to enter a cycle of giant storms that will decimate life on Earth and destroy our modern civilization. It's happened before, but it was long before humans even had writing. Now it will occur again in 50 hours. Amid this imminent catastrophe is the God in the Clear Rock, a mysterious presence influential throughout the history of ancient man on the American continents. And she has a secret.
Following stories from history, fast-paced scenes jump across centuries and millennia of time as the mystery of the God in the Clear Rock deepens. Coming together over years, unforgettable characters and epic events throughout the history of man unknowingly countdown in a race against the sun.
THE GOD IN THE CLEAR ROCK has everything you could want in an epic sci-fi story; ancient civilizations, giant humans, advanced technology, military secrets, artificial intelligence, and a timeline that covers 78 millennia. Engaging, imaginative, and believable writing will drag you into the intrigue and drama as it begins to unfold across the planet.
First in a six-book series covering the 50 hour countdown, THE GOD IN THE CLEAR ROCK presents the initial eight-and-a-half hours. But 78,000 years of brutal history and adventure lead up to this first exciting book. The story blends the hour-by-hour style of the TV drama 24 and the intelligent storytelling of Asimov with the twisted plots of George R.R. Martin; the result is a page turner you can't put down.
It's filled with science, technology, history and adventure, plus a sci-fi twist on a cliff-hanger ending that will have fans jumping into the second book in the series, THE HOLE IN THE MAGIC SHIELD (available now).
Note: This story is a serial. Each of the six books is an installment in the 50-hour story.
Newly revised second edition.
