*** Special Feature - May 2019 ***

About the Book:
Empyrea, an island in the Andromeda galaxy belonging to planet Vathura is serene. Everywhere your eyes turn, you will feast on the lovely birds singing their heart out in the lush green vegetation. Osiris Mysterio ruled the regions of Empyrea with his brother Tyrant Seth and with their children Pitheceus Babi, Kraity Wadjet, and Horus Mysterio.

5000 years ago, the ancient Egyptians were the only humans to receive the invitation to enter Empyrea. They gladly on-boarded into a Pegasus chariot and took their journey to Empyrea. Their journey is indescribable. Empyrea by itself was like a fairy-tale garden, an ocean of flowers and exotic trees.

As the Egyptians went further inside Empyrea, they saw its netherworld. They had mixed feelings when they saw the triangle shaped tombs and the bizarre headhunting people. Empyrea also had the blood-curdling creatures like the deadly dinosaurs, gigantic snakes, furious apes, ruthless rhino’s, massive mastodons and many other creepy creatures. This showed the power of the Empyrean Army and that no other army could survive their wrath.

The Emperor Osiris and the kings ruled Empyrea with powerful Scepters. With those powers, they were not only considered as kings but also worshipped as Lords. The Lords with the help of their scepter had the crucial power to transform themselves into giant creatures.

Egyptians while departing from Empyrea was gifted with a shortcut portal to earth and also with some people and creatures of Empyrea to build the Empramids in Egypt. Overwhelmed with happiness they took the shortcut door and returned to Egypt.

However, the happiness was short-lived in Empyrea. The Empire of Empyrea was betrayed for ruling earth avariciously. Somehow the Emperor of Empyrea locked the shortcut portal and asked the Egyptians to safeguard it. The Egyptians, on the other hand, failed to safeguard the portal. And some gangsters accidentally opened the shortcut door in 2017 A.D, entered Empyrea, and inadvertently got access to the Lord scepters.

So, now the Earthians were left with no choice but to battle against the merciless predators and headhunting people in their heroic journey. Their ultimate fate lied in an empire beyond imagination. They would take their stand against the powerful lords, who brutally led their people to war against planet Earth.

Did the gangsters protect the earth from danger, or left the other world to accomplish their tyrant rule on Earth? Explore the world of Empyrea to unravel the truth behind this mystery.

Read an Excerpt:

The streets are lit red and green, the trees are decorated with bells and stars. The city is echoing with songs and frolic. Stars are hanging on the porch of every building and glistening with lights. Shops are crowded with people busy buying gifts. An aromatic smell of baked cake pervaded the air. It’s undoubtedly the Week of Christmas. 

It’s a beautiful night to enjoy with friends and family. Everyone happily enjoys their Christmas week with their loved ones. Every kid is delighted shopping with their parents. But the 5year old girl in flat 13b is shivering in fear. She is hiding under the piano in the storeroom to protect herself from the bizarre man who is searching for her upstairs.

The man looked like a giant, 6.2 feet tall and his eyes were a raging red desperate to find the girl. He was muscular with a slight tan and a scary mustache. He was wearing a long dirty coat covered with bloodstains. The blood on his coat seemed fresh. He was calling out the girl’s name… Sylvia.. Sylvia.. Where are you? You can’t escape from me. I am going to get you, Sylvia. It’s not very difficult you know… Come on out now Sylvia…

At this very minute, the girl was shivering in fear more because of the growling sounds coming from the graveyard next door. Sylvia was overwhelmed with foreboding. At one end, a bizarre man was searching for her and on the other, these eerie sounds were coming from the graveyard. And on top of that, she was getting uncomfortable in the storeroom which was infested by rats. The rats were scampering everywhere in the storeroom, each rat was pudgy, and the room looked disgusting.
Sylvia could hear the sound of boots echoing which grew louder and louder every passing second. She knows he is coming to the storeroom for her. She inhaled a deep breath afraid to breathe when the man opened the storeroom door, but he instantly shut it because of the stench and went back towards the living room. She chuckled but suddenly heard the fast playing sound of the piano and that’s where she was hiding under. She flinched and jumped out from the bottom. When she looked at the piano, there was no one there; she felt her heart hammering because she was the only person inside the storeroom. Her own sweat glistened in the streak of light streaming through the window. 
Suddenly a wave crashed against her window, she spun around in fright!! Her eyes were locked onto a silhouette of a strange bird sitting on a nearby tree in the full moon night, without any warning it rotated its head and flew towards her with its dark brown unblinking large eyes, she fell and crawled back in fear, the bird twisted before the window and went eastwards, that's a mature owl. When she got up slowly, she caught sight of her reflection in the old cobwebbed mirror. A growing sense of uneasiness swept across her and when she looked intently her face filled with horror.

She was trying to assess the situation reasonably and for the piano playing assumed it would have to be the rat which could have jumped on the piano and ran on it. 

The man heard the sound of the piano too and ran back two steps at a time towards the storeroom. 

The girl knew the man would return, but she didn’t know where to hide. 

Check out the book to know how the little one escaped from the bizarre man.
