Civilizations come and go; eons pass by with one ever present reality – the propagation of stories.  From the 12 labors of Hercules to the daily exploits of the Kardashians, humanity’s fascination with a tale other than its own continues to be a standard across space and time.  But how far is a tale from historical fact?  This unanswerable question is what prompted me to create The Anuk Chronicles.

It all started as a child believing beyond any doubt, that Perseus and Hercules were real entities who achieved great things.  Then came the story of Noah, which I would later learn had many variations to its narrative.  The final nail in my coffin was driven deep with the introduction to ancient Sumer and their religion of reverence to the Anunnaki: “those who came from above.”  Anuk is simply a shortening of Anunnaki. I am trying to avoid complications with the History Channel (joke...or is it?)

All of a sudden things started to make sense; I could see the connective tissue amongst the Norse, ancient Greece, the ancient Egyptians, the Hindu epics, Mesopotamia, Asia, Native-American culture.  The evidence was overwhelming, existing in the monuments left behind and in the deep oral traditions relegated to the realm of mythology.  I had to know more, and so began my dive into the rabbit hole.

Research was challenging at first, but with the wealth of knowledge shared by authors such as Erich von Daniken, Graham Hancock, and Zacheria Stichin, I was able to piece together a fantasy story with elements of actual archeology.  What if the anti-diluvian world was as modern as ours?  What if the pyramids were not tombs?  What if the gods were real, but only in their humanity which evolved them through stories into divinity?  These questions formed the foundation to my universe.  The framework of history, society, and characters would later fall into the realm of fantasy, which I created from real persons and social upheavals we are familiar with.

The story itself has taken on many versions as I originally wrote it as a series of screenplays for television.  In fact, the visual style in which it is presented may give the reader a sense of traveling through a season of a TV show.  There is a definitive beginning, middle, and end to the series as the remnants of history is what drives this title, albeit with a twist.

The hope I have is that readers take away a sliver of truth from the material, and if nothing else begin to question what the official version of history is.  I humbly offer The Anuk Chronicles as a fictionalization of Alternative History, and hope it stimulates a sense of adventure with readers.

Gods. War. Judgement Day. Novelist Abdur R Mohammed blends ancient myth, religious belief systems, and his deep imagination to create a fantastic new world on the pages of his fiction debut, Rise of Prophecy.
The Age of Virgo ends with an ancient Anuk prophecy looming over the world: 
peace ushers in prosperity; war brings annihilation. 
Prince Timon of Atlantis seeks the power of the Anuk star-people to conquer the world, but is challenged by the mysterious Liviana, who attempts to prevent the prophecy from unfolding. 
She is on a collision course with Alexius, a disgraced noble who inherits a secret from the gods. War is coming. Mortals and gods are in an epic power game in which strength, smarts, and allegiances are tested.
