Tuesday Teaser for March 4, 2014
I have not completed this book but I like it because it is a page turner. I am eager to read more, yet want it to last longer. Wonderfully creative author. I think he’ll go far.
TolGarda Mark H. Baker Jr. Publication Date: October 3, 2013
Book description from Amazon:
“Our planet has fallen from grace, the evil passion for destruction and despair swept across the world like a whirlwind. The year is 2123. One hundred years earlier the fallout occurred, the day one country suddenly launched a large sized nuclear missile the entire planet would remember, other countries quickly following suit, engulfing our civilizations in fear and hatred, perhaps not realizing the devastating consequences that followed soon thereafter.
Since that blood-filled day, the human race as we knew it was taken to the brink of extinction. The population of North America was a mere five thousand, far from the billions that once lived. The remaining few, built a city within the eastern Canadian Mountains in a large cavern. The inhabitants of this great cavern have named their dark but safe place of dwelling, “TolGarda”.
12% “The committee is ready to see us… I told them it was an urgent issue that needed to be resolved”, Kirk explained to the two as Joshua walked over to a large balloon type tube and touched it, the tubing beginning to glow a bright blue, lighting the room almost instantly. “Kirk… how did you get the appointment so fast… normally it takes at least a few days…?” Linda asked Kirk. “I told the committee that it was a city emergency that we be seen… to explain to them the severity of our studies and the progress that must still be treaded to have success…” Kirk explained to Linda as thoroughly as he possibly could, Linda nodding her head in agreement.”
87% “In a sudden moment, I felt something crawl from around my legs, but as I looked down, it was no bug, no animal, but a bluish cloud that seemed to flow around my body in synchronous motion, almost lifting me from the ground. I felt stronger, enlightened, suddenly given a power to understand its intentions and the abilities in which to battle this winged one of massive proportions. The moment seemed almost priceless in artist nature, the blue glow coupled with the forefront battle with this magnificent evil that stood just in front of me, no more than ten feet away could simply take one’s breath away.”
