Hayley Rae Johnson

Amazing blurb! I am intrigued by the short copy and cover.

William Gosline

The legend of Lemuria is certainly one of the most intriguing of all the lost-civilization legends. Gradner brings this incredible lost world back to life in the 21st century with a dollop of global intrigue and a side of native tribes.

William Brinkman

Great cover and I like the combination of mobsters and hidden civilizations.

Return to Lemuria

Billy Bayer is taken prisoner by the descendants of the Lemurian civilisation after conspiring against his mob-boss. He is taught how to tap into his extra-sensory powers and his life changes forever. This newfound power gives Billy the courage to confront his captors and challenge their age-old ideals.

Together with his crew of loyal companions, he devises a plan to thwart the organisation’s very existence. But how can one man stand up to a 12,000-year old prophecy that predicts adversity for all mankind?
The answer is hidden deep in the Brazilian Amazonia with anthropologist Dr David Steel, who, together with the FUNAI Foundation, is on a mission to save the endangered tribes from persecution. It’s his research that appears to contain the key to the survival of the human race.
