Resurrection: (The Alterran Legacy Series, Vol. 3)
Regina M Joseph (Author)
DescriptionChaos had been wrought by the short cycles of the Universe's timewave, and those cycles were spiraling toward an ever-quickening ending. Alterra's surface has been reduced to a barren wasteland. Earth has been devastated by a comet. With Alterra no longer a utopian garden, it falls upon Anu to lead. Sinister forces confront him at every turn. Can he defeat his enemies and reinvigorate his people to ensure their survival? Anu's most trusted ally, his son En.Lil, faltered on Earth and must now prove his worthiness to serve as Alterra's future leader. Supreme Leader Ama demands it, and he won't forgive. En.Lil is torn. There must be a deep meaning to his suffering, some vital task left undone. Earth is the key to their survival, and he must discover the entrance to the spirit world and learn its meaning. The lives of his Earthling son and the families who followed him to Khamlok depend on it. Don't betray them. You can take it-advice of the ancient Anunnaki Wise One. Would he?

About the Author
I'm fascinated by how civilization began. Archeologists trace human roots back hundreds of thousands of years, yet we only know much about the last ten thousand years or so. What did those people do and how did they live? Were there flourishing civilization that perished? And what made civilization blossom with agriculture across the ancient world at about 12,000 b.c.e.? Little is known about our ancestors outside of tales labeled as mere mythology. Those tales from around the globe have amazing similarities. And then of course there are those pesky pyramids that defy explanation. One of the oldest documented civilizations is that of Sumeria, located near present day Iraq. Recently translated Sumerian tablets report that each city was nurtured by the "ones who came from the stars." Yes, ancient aliens. With them, civilization flourished in the sophisticated cities. Although the starmen's technology was highly advanced, politically they seem backward--they were ruled by a father and his two sons. En.Lil, the primary son governing Earth, was in appearance an adolescent. If this story has any truth, how could that be? My answer is through rejuvenation. Many of our current social, political, and technological trends might conceivably lead to a global rule by a single family. And humans are always yearning to explore the universe. If we find a planet with primitive hominid life, what will we do? Like a forensic investigator, I interpreted their world from the morality they taught to shape the mesopotamian civilizations. And so, I constructed the world of The Alterran Legacy Series. My first installment, Colony Earth, was released in October 2012, and it won the first place 2012 global eLit Award in science fiction/fantasy. This volume imagines why they were here and decided to stay. The second installment, Khamlok, was released in March 2013, and it describes their first attempt at nurturing civilization, as well as why they changed course in Sumeria. After all, an advanced civilization doesn't go to primitives on another planet and just decide to erect high mud brick walls with a central ziggurat unless they were learning lessons from past experience. The third in the series, Resurrection, deals with the consequences to En.Lil of his decisions on Earth. It also follows one of the most well known Sumerian "myths", or is it historical fact? I am writing the concluding volume, Redemption.
