The Augur's View by Victoria Lehrer is a spellbinding introduction to the New Earth Chronicles, a compelling science fiction tale with post-apocalyptic undertones and a setting in 2034. The Solar Flash has left Earth crippled, an event that had been predicted by ancient manuscripts, laying Earth to waste. But before the devastation, the controllers hid in underground caverns with their minions and military. The few remaining members of the ruling class hunt the human hybrid, Eena. Eena and Gavin have survived the worst on the surface and now the new rulers of Earth want her to work in the lab, cloning infants for a future work force. But there is more conspiracy brewing, initiated by those with secret knowledge about the ancient manuscripts. And how will the discovery of the portal to ancient Mu alter Eena’s destiny and that of humanity?
This novel is a strong opening to a promising series that marks the author apart as one to watch. It begins with a compelling premise, an apocalyptic moment, but then when Earth is devastated, something new emerges, something even more powerful and deadlier. Victoria Lehrer is a great storyteller and she succeeds in creating different levels in the story, with a complex plot that is packed with action and surprising moments. The characters are elaborately developed. The plot is enriched by covert activities and intrigue. There is a powerful sense of mystery — secrets hidden in ancient manuscripts and other worlds to explore. The Augur's View is exciting, featuring an imaginary setting that goes far beyond the world we know.
