Life altering reality, hidden in plain sight.
Ralph has a problem. The Grand Council of Atlantis, the council who rules the twelve hominid tribes, has chosen his apprentice for him. This unusual move has one obstacle. She doesn’t know what it means to be Atlantean.
Cerita Guzman is the oldest child in a struggling, single parent home. She doesn’t have time for world shattering reality to interfere with life. She has work, school, siblings, her mom, the house and now, of all things, Atlantis wants her time too. How is that even possible?
James has lived among the homo-sapiens, on the surface, for most of his life. He’s training though, to serve his people in Atlantis. His heart is torn when his master knight requests him to bring in the young woman selected by the Grand Council to train with him. She’s in a lot of his classes. She’s beautiful. She’s human.
When Atlantis calls, he listens.
As Cerita resists the call to serve Atlantis, James must find a way to help her accept the truth about the world around her, about herself. He does. He forces her to activate her internal nanites. She’s forced to accept whole new hominid species exist. If that’s not enough, she’s also forced to accept she’s one of them, when her nanites come to life, and she opens a wormhole into space.

Have you always been intrigued by Atlantis? Why?
Centuries ago an author with a political motivation, Plato, spoke of a great battle on the ocean between the historic state of Athens and the fabled Atlantis. This mighty nation in his story is said to have been more advanced than the great Athens and to have been blessed by the gods of old. He even comments on the possibility these were actually children of the gods themselves. Such a distinction in Plato’s day would impress upon his readers that Atlantis was truly a mighty force. That kind of might would be something challenging to a city known to be as strong as Athens, and this better identifies why the achievement of sending Atlantis packing was important. But these are the tales of a fantastic author who has captured the imagination of millions for centuries.
Since his time, many have speculated on which city or island nation he could have based the idea on. Based on his account, we know that Plato talks about Atlantis sinking around the year 7490 BCE. That’s more than 9000 years before he was born. In the same series of stories, he speaks of both the Celts and the Amazons attempting to invade the island nation and failing. This added to his explanation of their strength and resilience. It also adds to the timeframe in which the nation that inspired Atlantis may have existed. Over the centuries speculation has referenced civilizations from ancient Egypt to ancient civilizations resembling the Mayans.
Because most authors do base some information on things they know, even if only loosely, it stands to reason there was some form of Atlantis in historical existence. What form did it take? Why didn’t Plato ever reveal this city? Why does it tantalize our imaginations today? Part of that can be based on the fact shs descriptions were very specific, and his location of this continent existed. That alone has sent historians on a hunt for this lost civilization of greatness.
For me, it offered the best protection available to an advanced civilization of humanoid tribes needing to get away from homo-sapien fear and reaction. The historical mystery that surrounds Atlantis has lent itself to many books, imaginations, and opened the door to many unique possibilities. Knights of the Immortals is only the newest series in the quest to answer the mystery that is Atlantis.
