Book Description
Publication Date: May 25, 2012
Sheltered at the Emerald lake beyond the reach of the dark forces, Aislinn and Dylan transition into their roles as the celestial portal opens.

Besieged by the Eletarii, humanity struggles in its final hour. Legions assemble by the lake where they descend into the basest depravity wait while Aislinn and Dylan prepare to open the gate at midnight, a portal through which only a chosen few will pass.

Reading these books one at a time, about one a week made me think of a weekly TV serial. This week's story compares well to a Buck Rogers' episode with twisted evil aliens and corrupted humans chasing after the robed and beautiful, beings symbolizing good.

Aislinn is brought the final talisman be an eagle and opens the celestial portal. She and Dylan stand and watch the transformation as a rainbow sphere forms a glittering bridge and the mountain opens to a crystal chamber. A shimmering stairway leads up to an arch where Aislinn and Dylan will welcome the chosen ones who will pass through the portal to safety. The masses of people straining to enter are greeted by a majestic, god-like figure, Altithronous.

As the chosen joyously travel the stairs to pass through the arch, the damned flail and trample each other trying desperately to reach the stairs. Some tumble on the burning shores while others fall into the now churning lake, creating a “floating armada of skeletons.”

Aislinn and Dylan are the last to pass through the gates and move into the mystical, beautiful realm of Nirvana.  In the midst of joy, and as they recover their memories of their lives before earth, they learn that Aislinn’s royal parents have been betrayed and kidnapped. Aislinn and Dylan, more than mortals now, will be tasked with the mission to save her parents.

A lot of what is happening, the plan to re-inhabit the earth after the elementals are finally conquered, and the roles they have to play, are explained by narrative. Although this is more “telling” than showing, it is done with enough intensity and creativity that it works all right in the story. The new world they have entered  really has a rather fantastical feel to it.  I am ready for Aislinn and Dylan to face more dangers in the next adventure.
Aislinn just before opening the portal:
"Everything humanity has experienced has led to this moment, to these objects I hold in my hand. Location 222.
Explaining why the goodness of the Nirvana ancestors on earth had been lost to corruption:
“The potential for enlightenment is always there,” Altithronus said. “It is only when one no longer listens to the heart, to the wisdom of the ages, that darkness sets in.” Location 502.
Aislinn commenting on their next mission:
“But our past on this world will become our future. We’ll face all the tasks before us, no matter how daunting.”  Location 772.
