NEVAEH – THE LOST CITY OF NEMEA
OMEGA CHRONICLES – BOOK 2
“If you were to destroy the belief in immortality in mankind, not only love but every living force on which the continuation of all life in the world depends, would dry up at once.” – Fyodor Dostoevsky
Many people believe that being immortal is a bliss, something that is priceless… something that one would do next to anything for. Would it be a bliss to live long enough to see all your loved ones perish? To wander around the world in loneliness, for every friend you ever made have run out of time to spend with you? Personally, I think not! It’s not a bliss. If anything, it’s a downright curse.
This story about the lost city of Nemea is a subgenre of the fantasy or science fiction genres that involves the discovery of an unknown world out of time and place. The second novel in the Omega Chronicles series is also a subgenre of the late Victorian adventure romance. This story has a similar theme to other mythical kingdoms, The Lost City of Altinova in Book 1 and others, such as Atlantis and El Dorado.
Lucas Petersen, a professor at the University of Texas, is resting quietly in his apartment on Guadalupe Street near the main campus. There’s a knock at his door that surprised him. He is visited by Tommy Hansen, a good friend. With him, he brought a steel box, sat it down at his friend’s table, and explained his unusual request, including the fact that he was soon to die. Part of the request was that the contents of the box couldn’t be disclosed for twenty years.
Later that day, Lucas received a message that his good friend did in fact die the same night, after visiting with him. At that time, he adopted his friend’s five-year old son and waited over twenty years to open the steel box.
After twenty years, Lucas and his adopted son read of the quest they must follow into the darkest of jungles in Peru, a place more than one thousand miles northeast of Lima.
As they journeyed, the men encountered a most terrible storm, a river full of crocodiles, never-ending mosquitos, seven-foot-tall savages, huge Anaconda snakes, cannibals, and last but not least, Queen Nevaeh herself.
Just before reaching the end of their quest, the adventurers found a never-ending city, breathtakingly beautiful with old Greek architecture. The patterns of the roadways and the buildings were geometrical to the very last brick. The statues of Gods and Goddesses were perfect. The stone lions appeared ready to spring off their perches at any second. In the center of the Lost City of Nemea was the next to last step for the adventurers before pressing on towards their final destination, the Pillar of Life.
