DESTROYER OF WORLDS: 3: GOD'S CHAIN Bk 3: DESTROYER OF WORLDS by Nikolaus Baker
DESTROYER OF WORLDS Man's reign is through. Universal laws are breaking in the cosmos with the coming of the dark lords to the world of man. It is they who intend to complete GOD'S CHAIN and become a God of gods, destroyer of worlds. Professor Mancini expedition leader is top of his game, he has discovered the legendary Vale of MalisIblis where a lost temple exists and already entered the temple after a horrific human sacrifice. He believes it holds a mythical and priceless artefact called "The Key of the Gods of Seven Rays". This is a large golden disk, a legend believed by ancient tribes in South America that will open a portal to the Gods. Harjit Singh is a medical student and is promoted by the professor to lead her team through the upper temple while he explores the lower levels. She soon becomes lost and in critical danger, chased by a hideous monster. This is the time of the prophecy, perfect for the arrival of Lord Smite, first of the dark Lords. Smite with a brutal army from another world has come to take the link of power, conquer and then consume all life on Earth. His forces immediately put siege onto the defending temple garrison. The defenders are shocked at fighting the impossible, then stunned even more at seeing a new super-being as mighty as Smite! GOD'S CHAIN holds the power to all existence. Excerpt: "Help us!" Harjit pleaded loudly. "This is the home of Shiva the Destroyer, an awful and evil place." Harjit's crazy vision turned any doubt of getting away unscathed into grim reality. "He is alive!" Then she gasped in horror. "Chris, look! That's not him, there's something lying ON HIM!" Harjit froze. Instinctively she did not want to get any closer to him. "It must be that thing I saw!" "What is it?" Christopher begged, bleary-eyed and not realising their danger. "Look on top of Cesare! Shiva! Some giant insect is on his back Christopher!" Christopher stared wildly at the sickly-looking creature on top of him. "In the name of God," Christopher stated and uncertain of what he was looking at, blinking hard to clear his eyes from dust. Something silvery-white was on him, providing an excellent camouflage for the creature. They could see its six short scaly legs, each making a clicking noise. Everyone felt sick while gasping in the dust. The thing began slowly crawling over Cesare, fixing itself on top of him. The creature had numerous tiny white albino eyes positioned all over its oval casing. Its hard exoskeleton showed a multitude of small sharp jaggy peaks used for protection. It seemed to be calculating their threat, studying them in fine detail. Moving a little on the man, it stopped. Then its surface began changing colour from white into bright pink. It had stuck itself solidly onto the man's back. Cesare shivered a little, moaning involuntarily and said nothing. Everyone looked desperately at each other then the man lay quiet and very still. All in a state of shock, watching as his body gradually became FOSSILISED.
