The Lost: Birth & Death of Legends

The Lost: Birth & Death of Legends
ONGOING
185 pages

This story follows after the events that take place in The Lost and tells the stories of the array of different characters in the interesting worlds of this unnamed Universe we find ourselves in. There is loss the is pain there is death, there is gain there is growth there is rebirth. 

Enjoy. 

Totaly learning as I go along, don't mind criticism but i hope those few that have been following the story from Followers of the Way don't lynch me as I try to take the story in a different direction again.

Throughout human history the most advanced civilizations of their age have been lost. Some we assume through war, stagnation or natural disasters. But others, even with our advanced learning and anthropological skills we just have no idea where some of the most advanced empires, kingdoms or nations or even individuals went. As though one day they left all their worldly possessions and simply disappeared.

The Mayans that were so far a head of their time that they built pyramids before the Egyptian with their vast slave force.

Timbuktu with its scholars known far and wide as the font of civilization and learning.

El Dorado, a city with a people so far removed from wealth and worldly possessions they used gold to fashion their door knobs.

Atlantis, a island kingdom populated by a people so far ahead of the rest of the world they had already mapped the entire earth while everyone else still thought it was flat. A civilization that disappeared so thoroughly that even the island itself is yet to be found even today.

Enoch, a mysterious man that simply disappeared in the unforgiving maw that is history, but said to have walked with God.

Join me in the world where they all ended up, a world of a higher mortal realm.

                                                                          

This story is the third book in the continuation of 'The Followers of The Way' and 'The Fall of The tribes'.

I will be writing this story while simultaneously writing the 'The Fall of The Tribes', which isn't yet finished.

But I want to start this early 'cause of the NaNoWriMo competition.

Before The Lost after the The Fall, this story could be lore, could be law, could just be the acknowledgement of the passage of time between one story told and another. Just because I fail to tell you about the little details that happened in our characters' daily lives it doesn't mean they stop growing.

This is a story of the lives of our heros/villans as they happen outside our usual sight. When we stop being voyeurs in these strange people's lives between the last book and the next this is what happened, just a summary. 

Not to be read without first reading 'The Fall of the Tribes'. 

 

Cover art to be posted wont be mine and if you feel i should take it down let me know. If you wanna draw me something better, great. let me know. That's the picture the Ragnar character is inspired by.

This story is a continuation of the events that took place in Followers of The Way.

Follow the adventures of a few as they impact the lives of the many. The brave deeds of many, affecting the continuing lives of the few.

Follow the birth and death of heroes, villains, legends, myths, deities and worlds seen through the eyes of the few, some even mortal living fleeting futile lives destined for the cold kiss of death.

While everything takes place on Gaia, what happens on Earth? Where is the advancement in human civilization? How much closer to the truth of their exists do the people of the world we call our home come?

Let's find out as the events that take place on Gaia, the cradle of the Earth bring it out of it's time stream and the possibility of taking a space ship to another habitable planet suddenly becomes realistic from Earth.

                                                                         

This is just a concept in my mind, not really for reader consumption anytime soon, especially the readers following the first three installations of my story. If I manage to writing the whole thing out it will probably be mainly a stand alone novel, but it will also definitely be the fourth book in what I hope will be the 'followers of the way' series.

When the worlds were relatively young and the gods still made the mistakes of rebelious youths. When most creatures still knew the legends of their creation, before legends become myths and myths became lost. Follow the stories of a few individuals who lived and died before the laws of the universe were set by the will of God.


My first attempt at a story. Will try to make it interesting but please bear with me. Also not a English home language speaker so expect a lot of typos and gramma errors. Also making all this up day to day. Sometimes I inhale smoke and feel 'genius' revelations fall upon me. (Trying to get all my ideas on paper before my creative years disappear).


Disclaimer: Cover Photo Not Mine. I just thought it looks cool and decided my story is going there.
