Theories about Ancient Aliens visiting Earth at the dawn of human history become fact when the lost city of Atlantis is discovered. The ancient colonial starship brought god-like beings to our world and now humanity has formed LARC, the League of Atlantis Reborn Colonies. Its flagship is arrives to a new world only to discover artifacts from the makers of Atlantis. Will Earth's first deep space colony survive on a world filled with the Anki Legacies? An unlikely ally to the human colonists recounts the LARC1 colony's disastrous homecoming. Alex Lipitakis said,” Sumerian mythology was expanded to intergalactic proportions, taking in the origins of Atlantis, and ultimately of the human race. This was coupled to a multitude of diverse alien races, some with very human characteristics, and others very alien in their behaviour and outlook, each with their own special skills. Each of these new alien races is imaginatively described, and one of the highlights for me was meeting each new race and finding out what made them tick. Added into the mix were some epic battles and cool alien tech. I really want a Shugarra of my own! This was a great universe to be immersed in, and the way the alien mythology was slowly revealed, throughout the book kept me interested through. Overall this was an utterly exhilarating ride.”

From the Author:

Thanks for browsing Distant Origins. This is my first novel and the first part of Anki Legacies. I have always been fascinated by ancient alien theories and this novel was my opportunity to explore a universe where mankind begins to catch up with the advanced life that may have sparked our species' civilization.The story is narrated from a  character with telepathic abilities, but it is really about the whole colony and its first encounter with other forms of sentient life. If you are a fan of character development, check out my latest work, A Paleolithic Fable. If you've ever wondered what it would be like to use MMA on an alien, this book is for you!

About the Author:
