9780615659961: Colony Earth: THE ALTERRAN LEGACY SERIES (Volume 1)

Would you abandon your civilization's ancient principles to survive on an alien planet?

Blending mythology, advanced technology and political intrigue, the Alterran Legacy Series is a a high-action adventure tale, based on historical fact or, if you prefer, mythology. In Book 1, Colony, Earth, the Alterran ruling family of Anu, En.Lil and En.Ki are stranded at their Earthly colony in Albion after a solar eruption pierces their home world's atmosphere. With their food supplies dwindling, their lives are imperiled after a comet destroys their rejuvenation chamber, unleashing a deadly virus.

Confronting their new mortality, do they calmly accept their fate and permit their revered civilization to slip into oblivion?

From the Author:

I'm fascinated by how civilization began. Archeologists trace human roots back hundreds of thousands of years, yet we only know much about the last ten thousand years or so. What did those people do and how did they live? Were there flourishing civilization that perished?
And what made civilization blossom with agriculture across the ancient world at about 12,000 b.c.e.?

Little is known about our ancestors outside of tales labeled as mere mythology. Those tales from around the globe have amazing similarities. And then of course there are those pesky pyramids that defy explanation.

One of the oldest documented civilizations is that of Sumeria, located near present day Iraq. Recently translated Sumerian tablets report that each city was nurtured by the "ones who came from the stars." Yes, ancient aliens. With them, civilization flourished in the sophisticated cities. Although the starmen's technology was highly advanced, politically they seem backward--they were ruled by a father and his two sons. En.Lil, the primary son governing Earth, was in appearance an adolescent. If this story has any truth, how could that be? My answer is through rejuvenation.

Many of our current social, political, and technological trends might conceivably lead to a global rule by a single family. And humans are always yearning to explore the universe. If we find a planet with primitive hominid life, what will we do?

Like a forensic investigator, I interpreted their world from the morality they taught to shape the mesopotamian civilizations. And so, I constructed the world of The Alterran Legacy Series. My first installment, Colony Earth, was released in October 2012, and it won the first place 2012 global eLit Award in science fiction/fantasy. This volume imagines why they were here and decided to stay. The second installment, Khamlok, was released in March 2013, and it describes their first attempt at nurturing civilization, as well as why they changed course in Sumeria. After all, an advanced civilization doesn't go to primitives on another planet and just decide to erect high mud brick walls with a central ziggurat unless they were learning lessons from past experience. The third in the series, Resurrection, is nearing publication, and it deals with the consequences to En.Lil of his decisions on Earth. It also follows one of the most well known Sumerian "myths", or is it historical fact? I am writing the concluding volume, Redemption.

From the Back Cover:

Reviewed by Barbara Garcia for Readers' Favorite:

Colony Earth by Regina M. Joseph is an expertly woven tale of the interactions of the inhabitants of the planet Alterra and "primitive" people of Earth. For the Alterrans, Earth has become an attractive alternative for desperately needed resources as their planet's core begins to slowly cool. Traveling through a portal to Earth, they carry on research, experiments, and gold mining. En.Lil, a named successor to the leadership of Alterra when his time comes, finds himself, as well as numerous researchers, support personnel, and guardsmen stranded on Earth after the portal they'd been coming through for ages has to be shut down due to sudden limited power sources after a catastrophic event on their home planet. Realizing the portal may never be activated again, En.Lil must take decisive action to ensure the long term survival of the colony, even though it puts him in direct violation of the Non-Interference Directive. Meeting the beautiful Alana pulls him even further into that violation as he realizes that perhaps Earth people are not as filthy and primitive as he had once believed.

Colony Earth is a fantastic read! Author Regina M. Joseph has painted a fascinating picture of what it could have been like for early Earth people to encounter people from another civilization. Well developed characters and rich world descriptions, as well as great pacing and storytelling make Colony Earth an engrossing read. I smiled quite a bit as the guardsmen slowly recovered from the effects of eating food containing emotion controlling substances and began to experience emotions they hadn't before. And while En.Lil was raised in a strict regimented way as befitting a future leader, he begins to find Earth quite liberating, as well. After the men of Alana's adopted tribe are slaughtered by Danes, it's En.Lil and his guardsmen who help them, despite the directive. He realizes that Alana and the other women may be their only hope in preserving their race. I highly recommend this first book in The Alterran Legacy and am very much looking forward to reading Khamlok, the second book.

Descripción Colony Earth, United States, 2012. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Colony Earth is Book 1 of the Alterran Legacy Series In ancient human history, an explosion of knowledge of agriculture, building, and steel weapons occurred suddenly, without explanation, and the human population prospered and grew into civilization. According to clay tablets found at ancient cities of Sumeria, the cities were founded by those who came from the skies, who dwelt there and gave knowledge to the citizens. The tablets reveal that those who came from the skies had lived on Earth far longer than the age of Sumeria. The principal leaders of those who came from the skies were half-brothers Enlil and Enki, who reported to their father, Anu, who ruled on their home world. The beginning books of this series serve as a prequel to the decision of this race to take an active interest in managing the development of humankind, and imagines why an advanced, technological society could have been governed by a small ruling family, while weaving in ancient mythology and recent geological discoveries.
