Andrew M. Crusoe

Conceived and written on the Big Island of Hawaii, regarded as the heart chakra of the planet itself, the story has a heart-centered approach, metaphorically and literally. It’s also one of the few novels featuring Ānāpānasati meditation, a technique that stretches back millennia. And most importantly, this novel is based on the Ra Material (aka. The Law of One), woven from truths that transcend space and time, applying anywhere in the universe in any era. Thus, many people describe it as “Transcendental Science Fiction.”

At first glance, this is a fast-paced story about self-forgiveness, healing, and courage, but underneath the surface are strong themes of cosmic mythology, personal growth, and spiritual evolution. What we truly are is indestructible, and this story is built around that truth. Although technically the 2nd book in this series, the characters and conflict are reintroduced. This book does not require you to have read anything else in order to appreciate the story herein.

Beyond the Known Cosmos, on the other side of time…

When Asha and Zahn return to the sapphire forests of Avani after a pivotal victory over the Vakragha, they celebrate their miraculous survival, taking a well-deserved break from the galactic conflict… only to find conflict within themselves.

Bent on consuming every star in the galaxy, the Vakragha will return, and Asha and Zahn consider their options carefully. Yet to everyone’s surprise, a Confederation pilot lands with a new mission: to recover The Kiss of Life. Capable of reviving the dead, the ancient artifact is singular in its power, and if the chthonic Vakragha are allowed to retrieve it, their reign of terror would be unstoppable.

Swept up into an adventure to find the Kiss of Life, Asha crashes on a remote planet and discovers a mysterious island that comes to life with villagers and roaring bonfires every night, only to find that any trace of them vanishes each morning. Add deadly cave creatures into the mix, and Asha is pushed to rely on her intuition, courage, and self-confidence to survive the Island of Forever and return home alive. Finding peace on the island is challenging, but finding peace within herself is the greatest challenge of all.

When Zahn recovers an extraordinary meteorite impacted into the silvery beach near his home, the course of his life is changed forever.
