The Scepter of the Nile: Book 5: The Seeker

by Ross Homer on 2018-10-24

Twenty-five thousand years ago, a ship comes to Earth from across the galaxy. It is occupied by thousands of excited colonists who have come to settle an empty planet. Except they find that it isn’t empty. They discover that humanity is emerging.

Things then go terribly wrong for so many of the Colonists. The survivors remain, alone, disconnected from their home world. Most hope to return someday.

But not all.

A young woman, a physicist, has an idea for a unique way of communication. She runs square into reality outside the hallowed walls of academia.

An international gambler discovers there’s more to life than cards.

A young woman is kidnapped. Another is raped and murdered. How do these events relate to the physicist who finds herself in the middle of it all?

She finds that she is marked for death by two different groups who will do anything to prevent the completion of her project.

And then there’s that golden eagle that seems to be everywhere she is.

This is The Seeker, the fifth book in the Scepter of the Nile adventure.

Hunting for a serial killer, Casta Rodriguez notices a young woman, apparently lost. The woman is walking the streets wearing nothing but a thin silk shirt and cargo shorts...on a cool October evening in San Francisco. Who is this young woman, Casta Rodriguez, detective for the SFPD, wonders when she stumbles across Kai Seven Travelers.

On a whim, Casta offers Kai shelter for the night. This decision will change her life forever in ways and places she can’t possibly imagine. She will be kidnapped, her throat slit. And magic, which she certainly didn’t believe in before, saves her life.
Before Casta can fully accept what’s happened to her, she falls in love, finds herself on a strange planet and abruptly lands with Taagen Davis fighting for their lives in an unsurvivable bog.

Will she survive? Who is the prophesied love of her life? Is Taagen Davis the warrior she’s been told he his? Will they save Aba Nam and the Seven Worlds?

Tori, the Queen of Aba Nam, sits in defeat, staring distantly; not seeing the devastation all around her as storm clouds churn across the sky of her home world. Blocked at every turn, her abilities as a sorceress have failed her ... failed her realm.

Taagen Davis stares at a blank computer screen waiting for inspiration for his next mystery novel. Eyes absently gazing over the San Francisco Bay; he too, is blocked ... his creativity stifled.

In their infinite wisdom, the Fates have decided these two people, from wildly different worlds, will meet on a dark mountain road in California.

Nothing will ever be the same for either of them.

So begins the Witches of Aba Nam adventure.

Two women stand looking at a newly finished burial palace. One of the women is Cleopatra VII. It is to be her tomb for when she needs it many years in the future.

It won’t be all that long.

The woman next to her is her good friend Tomyris of Massagetae. She helped designed the burial palace. Together they created a tomb of magnificence, simplicity and…mystery. There is more here than meets the eye.

Three days after the death of her lover Marcus Antonius, Cleopatra is cruelly murdered by a trusted servant. With great ceremony they are laid to rest. They are never to be disturbed in their slumber until the burial palace itself crumbles to the dust from whence it came.

Fernando de Bolivar, as arrogant as he is wealthy, is an archeologist and explorer with a nose for new discoveries of ancient sites. There is one place though that has continually eluded him. Antony and Cleopatra’s tomb. His lifelong vow is to find it and take what he can.

Standing in his way is Dr. Tomyris Currington who has vowed to protect the secret of the tomb for as long as she can.

Will she fail in all of her attempts to dissuade Fernando de Bolivar from continuing his search? Will she fall for his charms? His money? Or will he, and she, encounter something else entirely?

The answers are in The Tomb, the fourth Scepter of the Nile book.

The Scepter of the Nile: Book: 2 The Ankh

by Ross Homer on 2017-12-29

Five thousand years ago, the goddess Sekhmet issued a terrible threat to the first King of Egypt. The ankh she gave him must be returned to her in the future or people will die.

Now, five thousand years later, an empty wooden box sits in front of Tomyris Currington. When she sealed it there was an ankh inside. It was a beautiful, priceless, jewel encrusted golden Ankh of Egypt.

It is gone.

There were only three people who could open this box. No one else. Now the box sits there, silent and empty. It is obvious that someone removed the ankh. Who? What has happened to the ankh? A better question is, who has the ankh?

Lives will be lost. Relationships will be torn apart and one will stand in judgment.

Will the Ankh be found before Sekhmet acts on her threats? Will lovers be reunited? Who stands in judgment?

The answers are in The Ankh, the second Scepter of the Nile adventure.

Throughout the ages there have been people with exceptional reflexes. We watch them because they are the physical magicians on the playing fields and in the stadiums of our world.

They are the super-gifted athletes whose skills are unimaginable to us mere mortals.

Governments worldwide know about another group of people, those with the excellent reflexes that are a little above the exceptional athletes. They are in a class by themselves.

They are Time Benders.

Ariel Taylor is a Time Bender...and something else.
