It is my privilege to reblog this post from ETERNAL ATLANTIS by Luciana Cavallaro announcing the release of Search for the Golden Serpent (Servant of the Gods Book 1) — an exciting historical fantasy by Australian author Luciana Cavallaro. In this epic odyssey, Luciana brings to life the pantheon of Ancient Greek gods and goddesses and the legend of Atlantis through the eyes of a 21st Century architect, a time traveler today’s audience can relate to. This tale not only sweeps you away into adventure, but it also richly shows the mystique of ancient civilizations and religions. This novel is a true delight, particularly for those who love mythology and the hero’s adventure.
Below is my 5 of 5 star review:
The Search for the Golden Serpent, by Luciana Cavallaro, is the first novel in the series entitled, “Servant of the Gods.” This is a tale of a modern-day hero who time travels to ancient sites such as Atlantis, Thebes, and Pylos. Evan is a multilingual Australian architect who has reoccurring nightmares of an ancient shipwreck. One day in his office, he receives a telephone call from Zeus and is teleported to Mt. Olympus where he is introduced to the Family, a pantheon of gods and goddesses. The Father of all Gods, Zeus reveals he had transported Evan forward in time to learn the skills necessary for a quest to prevent his Family’s demise in favor of the one god heralded by Moses. Little by little in dreams, Zeus reacquaints Evan to his former life on Atlantis where he is called Evandros. Zeus calls upon Evan to recover the sacred relics of the Mother Goddess and restore them on Atlantis to prevent the destruction of this civilization and the demise of the Family. Zeus gives Evan a writing tool to record his adventures and a mystical sword and shield.
Unwilling to accept these visions are real, Evan consults physicians to determine if there is something physiologically wrong with him. But when Evan is transported back in time to the ship wreck from his dream, he reluctantly begins an odyssey in 1500 BC to recover the first relic of the golden serpent. The story unfolds as an epic hero’s odyssey where Evan (Evanos) must travel to various ancient civilizations and overcome trials in his quest to find the golden serpent. He is accompanied by a Phoenician, a boy oracle, three Atlantean warriors and a high priestess. Ancient civilizations and cultures come alive with rich detail as seen through the eyes of a modern-day architect. Not only is this an action-packed adventure, but a reader will learn more about ancient history and mythology.
I highly recommend reading this novel that not only whisks you away into adventure, but it also vividly shows the mystique of ancient civilizations and religions. This novel is particularly a delight for those who love mythology and the hero’s adventure.
