Journey Overview: Blurb


Empyrea, an island in the Andromeda galaxy belonging to planet Vathura is serene. Everywhere you  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.

My Take

I received the international copy of
” Scepters of Empyrea ” Vignesh Ravichandran in a friendly gesture. I am not much into fantasy fiction but the cover and blurb attracted me to it and I started reading it. Soon ,I became so engrossed in it that I read it in every free minute i could spare and once i finished it I exhaled the breath I didn’t realised I was holding.

The story is of Empyrea, an island in the Andromeda galaxy belonging to planet Vathura. The story starts where we found an archeologist Hannah , accidentally found the pyramid which contains the mortal remains and possessions of king Djoser. Among them she found the key of Andromeda galaxy too which she ignored unintentionally. In process of collecting and preserving and transporting the antiques and valuables she came across one papyrus letter, stating ” We are more thankful to your father for saving out Kemet, for sure we will keep the key of Empyrea safe and help you in finding the “… rest of the part missing. She rummaged scroll after scroll and finally found the one with details of Empyrea. The description of Empyrea was so beautifully described in detail that it made her and me both fall in love with Empyrea.

She was more then intrigued to find more but soon all the possessions was transported to Miami for an exhibition cum fundraiser for autistic children. Here the gangster looted all the treasure and not only found the key of Empyrea,but also solve the puzzle which was necessary for entering Empyrea. while trying to escape from interpol and swat team accidentally they fall in the trap of destiny and entered Empyrea unaware that they are no more on Earth but on another planet.
The villain fought with creatures of Empyrea , struggled for survival and accidentally get the Scepters which hold the power and turned them I to lords of Empyrea . The evil older lords also came in scene and rest was history . The fight between evil and good took place in which the good emerged as winner. The Empyrea after 5000 years get back his lords and Scepters finally get their rightful and brave owners.

All through the story the different incidents keep us hooked . What’s going to happen next kept me glued. The fight scenes ,the descriptions and the different species are portrayed beautifully. The thing I loved most is the beautiful illustration all through the book. The different sketches of species an mostly the beautiful sketches of nature makes the book all the more interesting. This book is a must read for all the fantasy lover and non fantasy lover too because if you want to experience your first ride in a fantasy world,this is just the ride for you guys.
