Leoros doesn't have many friends. The son of a scientist and archeologist, he is constantly on the move. But when his parents make a startling discovery in Egypt, Leoros' world is turned upside down. Do you wish you could have the power of a god? Would you use it for good…or for evil? When an archaeologist discovers the mythic Emerald Tablet buried beneath Egypt’s desert, her son decodes the ancient text leading him to a distant world. On that world, a slave girl begins a journey towards a destiny she cannot imagine. But when an ancient foe rises from the ashes, they will be brought together by forces neither understands. Leoros, who dreams of being like the heroes in the comic books, must fight to unlock the secrets of the universe to save a people he never knew existed. Atlantia, whose bloody visions wake her in the night, senses the darkness coming. Together they will face an enemy with the power of dark energy, lose a mentor to the assassin’s blade, and be betrayed by someone they trust. Their fight for the future is just beginning, and before it is over, a final sacrifice must be made. When the darkness comes, will they stand and fight or will they join it? There is darkness in everyone.

Guest Review :
I'm a huge fan of fantasy and Science Fiction. Throw in some History and I am in Heaven. I loved the premise of The Emerald Tablet. Greek Mythology and the future - Brilliant! I know a lot of plotting went into this book and it has a lot of potential. Here is what I loved - It has everything - romance, history, mysticism, traitors, any metaphysics. The story line good and I want to read more. I would have enjoyed it a lot more if - This book really needed a content editor. Someone to help with the whole showing versus telling. I like to feel like I'm really in the story, not just reading about it. The beginning of the book was very heavy but got better as it went on. The main character was 13 but it was NOT a YA book, I wouldn't recommend to anyone under 17 but if you are older I suggest picking it up. Will I read the next in the series? Probably. I think this author is going to get better and better.
