— The handsome man wakes and starts a conversation with Sabrina. —
“Anyway, how did you get here? I guess you came from London.” Ome stare at the floor while Sabrina replied: “Barge. I came out of London on the Grand Union Canal. It seemed like a good idea, but I could only get to just after Aylesbury. In my naivety, I thought it went all the way to somewhere like Bristol.” “And you had no map?” “No.” “Clever girl. So were there many barges moving on the canal?” “Don’t call me girl. Do I look like I am still a girl?” “Sorry. Just a figure of speech, a bad habit.” “I saw none. Most had been looted and sunk. In places, it was difficult to get through. In fact, I had to change barges once or twice.” Ome nodded and asked: “Are you going to the shrine?” “No. I just wanted somewhere safe. I thought I would find in an isolated farmhouse. But wherever you find one, you find an army willing to defend it.” “Well, I am leaving today. I just want to clean up and then I’m off. You want to come with me? Back to London?” “No. It’s too dangerous. Sorry.” “It’s alright. I have to go.” “Your English is perfect! For an Irishman.” “Did I say I was born in Ireland now?” Ome replied.
There is a RIP in space and time. Om and Bri are trapped. All humanity; wiped out after seven cycles of destruction, Unless Om and Bri can unite to find the source of the rip.
A curtain of rainbow light shimmers and two people see their lives shift, in this tense, epic thriller. Om and Bri gradually become aware that they have met before – in previous lives. They begin to recall a mission that started with the discovery of Iron in ancient Atlantis. A gravitational rip was triggered by the Ischians, and water became impure, causing the gradual loss of memory and the Cup, a grail to hold the Holy blood of the first tree.
The blind Seer predicts that Earth’s health will never be restored until the Cup, the Holy Grail of legend, has been restored.
It’s their last life, their last chance. Om and Bri must find their way back through the rip to Atlantis, and to the cave where the last Val-yr, vampire priests, wait.
But the Cup needs a Key.
“Tolkien like epic with a touch of sci-fi.”
7 worlds. 7 lives. 7 chances for Om and Bri to save Earth.
