Fun Fact about The Lost Metal Library:
In 1976, astronaut Neil Armstrong was part of a British expedition, led by an explorer & civil engineer from Scotland, Stan Hall, to the Tayos Caves System in Ecuador. Over 100 people, including those from multiple scientific disciplines, members of two militaries, skilled & experienced cavers, as well as a film crew, participated. It was a massive undertaking; one of the most extensive & costliest of its kind in history. They were not only mapping the extensive region, they were in search of hidden passageways, & lost ancient artifacts, including a metal library. They didn't find it. However, Neil Armstrong described the adventure as "right up there with the moon landing."
The Lost Metal Library is a standalone novel and is the second book in the Ancient Quest Mystery Series, by Rai Aren, the co-author of The Secret of the Sands Trilogy, which explores the mysterious Great Sphinx of Giza and so much more!
