Review: The Emerald tablet by Joshua Silverman

Book Description

 September 15, 2012
Leoros doesn't have many friends. As the son of a scientist and archeologist, he is constantly on the move. When his parents discover the mythic Emerald Tablet in an ancient city buried beneath Egypt’s desert sands, his world is suddenly turned upside down. He decodes the ancient text which leads 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 that 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.

Do you wish you could have the power of a god? Would you use it for good…or for evil?

Silverman combines spiritual alchemy, Greek mythology, Egyptian gods and culture to produce a science fiction fantasy series that, once you start reading, you just can't put down. His knowledge of Egyptian culture and history is meticulously portrayed throughout Legends of Amun Ra - The Emerald Tablet. This is a must read for any sci-fi fantasy reader. You will instantly become a Silverman fan.

My Review:

Do you like history, sci fi and adventure, then this is a book for you!
Read how a boy Leoros is with his mother in Egypt, where she finds a tablet in a buried city. Leoros loves hero's super hero's and dreams to be one. when he decodes the ancient text he finds himself dragged into the a world far in a future.

He meets a old priest of Amun and later on Atlantia a girl who seen him in a vision (when she sleeps) and is seen as a slave in her world, but the priest and Leoros see more in her, she does have a gift like the others.

The gifted children are apprentices of the Priests of Amunapprentices of the Priests of Amun they are suppose to become priest and protect the people.
An Evil King is determine to fight the priests and take over. Will Leoros and his friends succeed in defending the city?

Overall a good book nice mix of Egyptian and Greek Mythology and a dose of science fiction, I enjoyed it and I can not wait to read the other 6 books when they come out.
