Overview

A Novella.

Alien "Gods" rule the Earth, but their dominion is an increasingly uneasy one. Rama, a temple-palace enforcer, does his best to maintain order. But when the alien Blue God summons him, and tells him to arrest Rawana, Rama's arch rival, events take a dramatic turn for the worse. Rawana has betrayed the Blue Gods in favor of their enemies, the Cold-Dark Dwellers. Fleeing the temple-palace, he kidnaps Sita, Rama's wife.

Now Rama must not only kill or capture Rawana, but somehow save his wife, as well. And then when the Ape King warns him of war, events take an even worse turn. Somehow, he must save his beloved Sita. Then they must make their way in an uncertain and dangerous world. Faced with the angry "Blue Gods," conspiracies of evil aliens, the dire warnings of the Ape King, and ultimately even nuclear devastation when total war breaks out, they must find their way to sanctuary--but where?

Inspired by the original text of the Indian Mahabharata and Ramayana, this novella is packed with excitement and action. Do legends have a basis in fact? Read The Mahabharata Codex ANCIENT ALIENS, by Rob Shelsky and find out for yourself!

Editorial Reviews

http://www.amazon.com/Mahabharata-Codex-ANCIENT-ALIENS-ebook/dp/B005FD0EN0/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1352991 - Kem Austin
This is a fast-paced sci-fi tale set in ancient India, and the author cleverly weaves information from both the Mahabharata and the Ramayana codices into the plot to give this a real sense of being "real." He uses the idea of the nuclear war that might have occurred to very good effect. Five out of five stars for this one!
