Summary

While digging through the ruins of a long dead civilization on the planet Mawcett, a team of Terran and Nordakian archeologists find an underground tunnel leading to a door in such extraordinary condition that it could have been fabricated as recently as that morning. They labor throughout the day, using every modern device available to them, but are unable to gain entry.  Then, in the early hours of the new day, seemingly in response to the screams of a frustrated, over-tired scientist, the door slides noiselessly open. Upon passing through the entranceway, the archeologists are stunned to find an elaborate complex in pristine condition. Summoning the courage to venture further, they enter a large circular chamber lined with strange electronic equipment, and immediately become engrossed in examining strange symbols etched into the floor near the center of the room. Suddenly, they're bathed in a strange light that paralyzes them where they stand. They watch in frozen terror as a clear, circular wall rises up around them. When the enclosed area begins to fill with a dense ocher gas smelling of persimmons, the dig site laborers, who had witnessed the activity from the periphery, run screaming for the entrance.  133,900 Words - 417 Pages

    Banished from Asgard, Loki is forced to flee from hideous green aliens who intend to kill him. He falls through a strange portal and ends up on a dystopian version of Earth. Deeply out of his depth in this harsh, post-apocalyptic world, his only hope of finding his way home lies with an outcast. 
    Bianca Caldwell’s short life has been an endless struggle for survival. When a god practically falls into her arms, she embarks on a journey that will take her far away from the cave in Texas that she calls her home. For reasons she doesn’t understand, she feels compelled to help him even though danger follows in his wake. 
    They are strongly drawn to each other during their perilous journey. Both feel as if they have a connection, almost as if they’ve met before. But that is impossible, since they come from different realities as well as dissimilar worlds. Forging an uneasy alliance, they must learn to trust each other in order to survive against the droids, clones and hostile humans who hunt them.
