Leoros doesn’t have many friends. The son of a scientist and archeologist, he is constantly on the move. But when his parents make a startling discovery in Egypt, Leoros’ world is turned upside down.
Do you wish you could have the power of a god? Would you use it for good…or for evil?
When an archaeologist discovers the mythic Emerald Tablet buried beneath Egypt’s desert, her son decodes the ancient text leading him to a distant world.
On that world, a slave girl begins a journey towards a destiny she cannot imagine. But when an ancient foe rises from the ashes, they will be brought together by forces neither understands.
Leoros, who dreams of being like the heroes in the comic books, must fight to unlock the secrets of the universe to save a people he never knew existed.
Atlantia, whose bloody visions wake her in the night, senses the darkness coming.
Together they will face an enemy with the power of dark energy, lose a mentor to the assassin’s blade, and be betrayed by someone they trust. Their fight for the future is just beginning, and before it is over, a final sacrifice must be made. When the darkness comes, will they stand and fight or will they join it?
There is darkness in everyone.

The Emerald Tablet Review:
This book started out very slow and had to much detail to get the story started. I continued to give it chance because it involved the Egyptian empire. I love anything to do with Egypt. So I read on and soon was engulfed in the story. It started out slow and hard to catch onto the characters but it didn’t stay that way for long.
The main characters are intriguing once you get to know them. I really enjoyed the character Atlantia. Her spunk to never let her status in society keep her down was amazing! The boy Leoros is also an interesting character. The author is able to really get into a boy his ages mind. He just wants to be a super hero and save people. I also enjoyed that there are little stories going on within the major story. Reading the Emerald Tablet is like reading a book series in one book. The betrayal was such a surprise!
This book is the first in a series. The second book will be releasing soon and I will be ordering it for my kindle. I cannot wait to see where the author takes the next book. I am partial though to a series. I think a series gives me a better chance to get to know the writing style. This author started a little boring but he quickly found his writing niche and pulled off a great action packed book! I would recommend this to a friend that likes sci-fi type books.
I received a copy of this book for my HONEST opinion. The opinion is my own and no one else’s.
