In an ancient civilization that spans Earth's galaxy, only those with strength of purpose and razor-sharp cunning can survive the wrath of the lustful and the craven. The Time Treasure: Insidious Inheritance is an enthralling, wildly inventive science fiction odyssey by Mark Fulcher and Annet Libeau, which pits the ruthless against the righteous in an epic galactic battle royale that could transform the universe as we know it. It's a riveting, mind-bending read for anyone who relishes a fantastic story of enduring love, courage, selfishness, greed, and corruption.
An advanced civilization once flourished on this old Earth, Mars, and the fifth planet, Shaytan, now known as the asteroid belt. When a rockfall unexpectedly reveals relics left by an older civilization, a greedy observer ignores the dire warnings to leave this find undisturbed, instead exploiting the opportunity for gain. This prompts an organization of powerful individuals from all three planets to attempt to lay their hands on the discovery. It's up to a single Earth-based faction and a few intrepid individuals to stop these unscrupulous masterminds. The Fighting Priest Daiyus leads the charge. Having no memory of who he really is, Daiyus believes he is an orphan who was brought to Karna by the temple cat, Kyr, the uncannily intelligent guardian angel who protects him from the wrath of the pernicious Hedra.
While Daiyus and Kyr investigate swirling rumors of an imminent war over an alleged dangerous legacy left by an ancient race, they are soon diverted to rescue the notorious assassin Tumarok. Along the way, they encounter the extremely beautiful princess Surra; the centaur-like Ekaasi who is an old seer; and Ogath, an explorer sent on an extraordinary journey into a new galaxy. Can they overcome fierce obstacles to keep civilization soundly in the hands of the virtuous? The Time Treasure: Insidious Inheritance offers a wild ride of the imagination that will have you gripping every word.
