Synopsis

Revised and expanded second edition.

Is this the second time humankind has evolved on earth? Is there a loop, and where is it leading us?
If you knew that life on earth would end in two years, leaving not a single plant or animal alive, leaving no trace of life at all on the face of the earth, what would you do?
If you knew that life would begin all over again, what would you like to leave the new generation and how?
The story begins 3 million years ago, with Dinkenesh and her daughter. The book ends –though the story does not- 2 million years from now, with Hasnen out in space, conducting an experiment to determine how the universe will end. It also reveals the true nature of Halley's Comet.
Between these two, there is
Peto, who tries to save his wife from the scorching rays of the sun;
Amma, who wants to protect her people from the approaching glacier;
Tarumsis, a woman priest who goes after Moses to save her temple;
Anina, the right hand of Paulus who fights to stop Barnabas;
Katharina Kepler, who sets out to help Young Osman on his mission to change the history of Europe;
Qin Alexia Temirova, who is the first World Leader;
and Kayra, who plays a big part in carrying humankind to a new planet.
Behind all of them is the mysterious priesthood of Ra-Tarhuna.

Ismet Yesil was born in Turkey in 1966. He became in-trigued with the world of astrophysics at an early age, and was especially puzzled by why the speed of light was a constant, and where the photon got its energy. He started creating theories to explain these phenomena, and soon he had come up with a whole set of interconnected theories. It only remained to put them in the context of a story, and The Guardian & The Loop was thus born. Ismet Yesil is married and has a daughter.
