The burial chamber of a revered Mayan sorceress is uncovered atop a sacrificial pyramid at the Caracol ruins in western Belize. Translation of ancient metallic scrolls and a 1100 year old diary found in the chamber reveal the existence of a secret entrance to the inside of a mountain. The scrolls refer to the interior as Trinium, the Place of Knowledge, and explain its creation by an advanced civilization.
A flash of mysterious blue light brings death to a U.N. official assisting the Belizean government in the search for the secret entrance. John Henry Morgan and Mary Ellen Rollins, two scientists working on a U.N. project in Africa, are chosen to investigate the death and determine the veracity of the mountain story.
As the investigation progresses, the U.N. representatives come into possession of a scepter wielding miraculous powers, and they uncover the source of sudden death from a mysterious ball of blue light.
Hidden controls embedded in the trunk of a giant oak tree materialize the mountain entrance, revealing strange sculpted caverns. Bizarre mental prodding guides the representatives to the Place of Seeing for the most shocking experience of their lives.
Protection of the mountain’s secrets requires cooperation from Belize, the United Nations, NATO and the United States. But leaks of the discoveries cause one nation to determine the mountain poses a threat to world order, and it will take great risks to neutralize the danger.
Marshall Chamberlain gives us a magnificent adventure into plausible reality and carries us into unique realms of danger and suspense, producing new insight for wrestling with age-old questions: who are we? Where did we come from? Is our historic record accurate?
Book I, The Mountain Place of Knowledge, is a spellbinding adventure, scientifically mysterious, and metaphysically familiar. Stalwart characters meet avarice and violence head on as Chamberlain weaves the first installment of the Ancestor Series of adventure-thrillers.
This first book in the Ancestor Series will not only appeal to thriller lovers but also to readers of both science fiction and paranormal. To date, all of my books have a little Indian Jones flavor, and I’ve been told a smidgen of Nelson DeMille’s style might have entered the mix. Similarities with some of the works of Lincoln Child/Douglas Preston and Michael Crichton exist, although my voice is less literary; I’ve branded it “raging-river prose.”
