Due to a freak auto accident, Jack Carpenter discovers a strange geological formation in the Mojave Desert near Bat Mountain, California. He thinks little about it until he returns out of curiosity and discovers the formation is growing, and doing so at a staggering rate.

Professor Parker has never seen or heard of a geological formation that is growing nearly six inches a day, so he contacts a friend at the U.S. Park Service to get him to take a look. Eventually word of the bizarre discovery gets out and people flock to see this miracle in the desert, which is beginning to look like a cathedral.

Seeing an opportunity to save his failing Church of the Living Desert, Reverend John Little proclaims that the Bat Mountain Formation is, indeed, a cathedral and it is being built by God to herald the second coming of Christ.

But before Reverend Little and his flock can get their movement off the ground, the U.S. Army steps in and declares the formation a potential public hazard and possible threat to national security. A series of mysterious deaths and the inability of scientist to explain the phenomenon gives credence to the Army's concern.

SHROUD OF DOOM

The Tarizon Saga

BY William Manchee

 

In this prequel to the Tarizon Trilogy the lives of three important leaders are chronicled, Rupra Bruda as the father of the Purist Party, Ramel Garcia as the champion of the Supreme Mandate, and Threebeard, the leader of the millions of mutants living outside the domed cities of Tarizon. Interwoven in the story of these influential leaders is the rise of the rhutz, Nanomites and Seafolken as sentient life-forms on Tarizon and the clash between the Purist, who want to enslave them all, and the Loyalist, who believe they are protected by the Supreme Mandate.

 

While all this is happening Tarizon is rocked by a series of super-volcanic eruptions that kill millions and enshroud the planet in a blanket of toxic haze. While most on Tarizon are just struggling for survival, the Purist see this horrific event as an opportunity to seize control of the government, revoke the Supreme Mandate and rid the planet of all inferior life-forms.

An American Teenager who thwarts an assassination attempt on the Prime Minister of Trinadad and Tobago becomes critical to the survival of the government, and the target of the opposition party.

 

Kevin Wells goes to visit his mother at Medical City Hospital in Dallas and has the good fortune of meeting Kiran Shah, the daughter of the Prime Minister of Trinadad and Tobago  who is Dallas for medical treatment.  Kiran and Kevin hit if off and hang out together while each's parent is in surgery.

 

Later that day when Kevin is going to see his mother he notices a suspicious man going into the Prime Minister's room. When he goes to investigate he interrupts and assassination attempt and ends up getting shot.

 

When Kevin wakes up after ten days in a coma, he has become a national hero and his life has changed forever. Although he is enjoying the notoriety and attention he is getting, he thinks a lot about Kiran and wishes he could see her again.

 

Several months later he gets his wish when he is summoned to Trinidad to identify and testify against the assassin and the Prime Minister promises him he can stay at his residence and be entertained by his two daughters.
