Book Description

26 Sep 2011 The Orbiane Trilogy (Book 1)
It's 2029, an asteroid heads for an impact in the Sahara desert following a mysterious change in orbit. Far from being the catastrophic event that had been predicted, an ancient secret is exposed that will re-write the history of mankind. Was an undiscovered branch of our family tree the foundation for our present civilisation? Who did build the pyramids? What are the markings on the Nazca plain in South America? The Torah Cult, a secret organisation, set up hundreds of years before, will stop at nothing to prevent the release of any information. Professor Simon Cartwright and Professor Mary Freeman are thrown together in a fast moving adventure where they travel from Timbuktu to Ayers Rock in Australia via Durham and Bangkok, while they battle to stay alive long enough to reveal the truth.

More About the Author

For more than 30 years, I developed computer systems for major UK and international companies which involved writing long and complex technical documents. In 2005 I took early retirement and in 2010 I started writing my first novel "Homo intellectus". I self-published it in 2011
I was born in 1947 and write under the pseudonym of 'James Anthony'. I didn't think my birth name was very marketable.
I'm currently writing a sequel.
I'm fascinated with ancient cultures and what happened to Homo Sapiens during the time that we have been here, at least the past 200,000 years. Currently, my books explore this theme.

2.0 out of 5 stars Great plot, shame about the characters 29 Mar 2012
By LesO
This novel certainly has a strong plot but, sadly, it is let down by formulaic characters who are one dimensional. It is fast moving but, at times, it left me somewhat incredulous; by the end I no longer cared what happened to Si and Mary. It also suffers from poor editing and basic spelling mistakes. I for one won't be reading the rest of the trilogy.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a good read! 24 Nov 2011

Just finished Homo Intellectus on Kindle and what a good read.

Fast paced, good characters and certainly qualifies as a book you cannot put down once started. Looking forward to the sequel (trilogy, series....hint, hint ?).

5.0 out of 5 stars A Gem 20 Nov 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Just finished reading this on the recomendation of a friend. Really enjoyed as it has a rather unique subject matter as the idea for the plot. Would make a good film I think if the right person picks up on it (please don't cast Nicholas Cage!!)

It has touches of Da Vinci Code, Indiana Jones and Chariots of the Gods about it. James Anthony manages to get a lean, fast paced and intriguing story into around 180 pages, so an ideal size for taking on a trip or holiday (if you're too poor to have a kindle like me!!) and will literally fit in your pocket. Don't let the size fool you, it's a good story well told and the author has resisted the temptation to unnecessararily bulk out the book with excessive detail or diversion.

To anyone thinking of reading this book I'd say, get the kettle on, settle down and go with it! A good bit of escapism. It also makes you want to look further into some ideas, facts and questions that the story has been based on.

Looking forward to the authors next book!
