THE AUGUR’S VIEW – Online Description
Forewarned by ancient manuscripts of the coronal mass ejection of 2034, the controllers head to protection in underground caverns with their minions and military. After Solar Flash, they return topside to a destroyed infrastructure, yet hastily resume their long-hidden schemes. Cut off from the web of power governing the Union of the Americas, the remnant of the ruling class tracks down the Anunnaki/human hybrid, Eena.
Eena and Gavin are among those abandoned on the surface that survive aircraft falling from skies, raging winds, and unrelenting electrical storms. Revulsion grips her when the new rulers offer her a rise in status by working in a lab to clone infants—the secret future work force.
ALL THE WHILE, those privy to ancient writings closely guard an even bigger secret—a game-changer. Solar Flash is the greatest boon ever offered weaponless, impoverished humanity, for a secret component of human DNA, dormant for millennia, is switching on thanks to electro-magnetic pulses from the sun.
When Eena discovers at last the portal to ancient Mu, she finds the giant augurs that fly there. Their help may be the last, best chance to achieve human sovereignty.
EVOLVED PUBLISHING PRESENTS a compelling speculative tale to bring the past full circle into the future, in this first book in the “New Earth Chronicles” series. [DRM-Free]

The Augur's View by Victoria Lehrer is a spellbinding introduction to
the New Earth Chronicles, a compelling science fiction tale with
post-apocalyptic undertones and a setting in 2034. The Solar Flash
has left Earth crippled, an event that had been predicted by ancient
manuscripts. Before the devastation, the controllers hid in underground
caverns with their minions and military. Eena and Gavin have survived the
worst on the surface and now the remnant rulers of Earth
invite her to work in a lab, cloning infants for a future work force.
Eena runs and discovers a portal to ancient Mu, land of giant birds, the Augurs.
The Augurs and DNA switched on by Solar Flash propel forward humanity's fight for sovereignty against seemingly insurmountable odds.
This novel is a strong opening to a promising series that marks the
author apart as one to watch. It begins with a compelling premise,
an apocalyptic moment, but then when Earth is devastated,
something new emerges, something even more powerful and
deadlier. Victoria Lehrer is a great storyteller and she succeeds in
creating different levels in the story, with a complex plot that is
packed with action and surprising moments. The characters are
elaborately developed. The plot is enriched by covert activities and
intrigue. There is a powerful sense of mystery — secrets hidden in
ancient manuscripts and other worlds to explore. The Augur's View
is exciting, featuring an imaginary setting that goes far beyond the
world we know.
