The first in a trilogy series, Ammara: The Awakening by Howard L. Braden unravels inside a mysterious cave known as the tunnel of hell in Tongaat, South Africa, where three archaeologists found a mirror smooth imprint on a rock. Years later, this cave will solve some personal and academic questions for Professor Robert Lance, an astrophysicist whose astounding discoveries will usher in the era of the second Space Age in the United States of America. When his wife Jenny Lance dies in a car accident, Robert finds himself without a real purpose in life. That is until he is recruited by the US Air Force and tasked to head a space program in a secret base in Nevada. What follows is an amazing story that will challenge the origins of humankind as we know it.
Ammara: The Awakening is an action filled novel. This is the kind of book that will leave its readers breathless right from the beginning until the very end. Its characters inhabit the intriguing world of science and astrophysics and may sometimes seem to speak in a different language, but the author is able to make them as ordinary as you and me. These are characters that move in a different world and are extremely intelligent, but they feel love, joy, sorrow and sadness, just like any human being so that it is not difficult to empathize with them. Mr. Braden is quite convincing in presenting a theory that will put a big question mark on accepted norms as to where we come from. This novel should make its readers ponder on the future of humankind too. I highly recommend this book!
