Product Description

Product Description

From the Number One Best Selling Author Saxon Andrew comes the first book in his third Science Fiction Series, Lens of Time - The Pyramid Builders.

This review is from: Annihilation: Love Conquers All

I was amazed at Saxon's beautiful re-creation of some of the best Golden Age SF. There just wasn't enough of it written. Modern authors usually don't or won’t get into the spirit of a good Space Opera. Saxon has real heroes (smart ones, great space battles, grand alien empires and bad guys you can love).


This review is from: Ashes of the Realm - Juliette's Dream (Ashes of The Realm (Book One)) (Kindle Edition)

Excellent! The most imaginative writing I have ever read. A true universe of its own, that you care deeply about. This continuation of the Annilhation series keeps you engrossed to the end. I can't wait for book two. Do yourself a favor and read both series.

He has it all. The characters are pure types. They are also powerful. What really made this book great was the marvelous style. His pacing and scene cutting remind me of E.R. Burroughs. Sharp! Fast paced and quick, the battle scenes remind me of Drake. A true blast from the past, I cannot wait to read the rest of the series. I only wish more authors had the ability and courage to write like this. E.E Smith would be proud.

Excerpt from The Pyramid Builders

Dr. Christopher Connor has discovered a way to view the past. His invention collects light and focuses it such that events that occurred on Earth years ago can be viewed. All one need do is travel one light year away and one can see what was happening on the planet a year earlier by capturing and focusing the reflected light that left Earth a year ago. There’s only one problem: no ship exists that can travel faster than the speed of light, so his device cannot be conclusively demonstrated to function as advertised. That’s fine with Christopher, who would much rather party and have a good time rather than defend his creation against critics and governmental bureaucrats. Besides, who would pay to view the past anyway?

Jillian Gordon, an Egyptologist with a PhD in Quantum Physics, has discovered that the survival of Earth depends on viewing what happened at the building of the Great Pyramid of Khufu five thousand years in the past. Christopher’s device would allow her to do just that and she intends to draft him into the project. Christopher is about to discover that the organization Jillian works for has engineered a starship with a faster-than-light drive, which will now allow his device to be field tested. The stardrive for that ship was developed from diagrams carved on the back of an ancient stone tablet excavated at the site of the Great Pyramid.

Life for Christopher is about to make a radical departure from his party, happy-go-lucky lifestyle. Getting Christopher to focus on what needs to be done is a problem Jillian hadn’t counted on in her quest to save humanity. The predicted destruction of Earth, which is carved on the front of the tablet, doesn’t leave her much time and Christopher isn’t cooperating.

What neither of them know is that the answer to survival is more than sixty five million light years away in light that left Earth just before the mass extinction of the dinosaurs.

The Pyramid Builders is a full length novel at 93,000 words. It is the first book in the number one Bestselling Author's Lens of Time Series.

3.0 out of 5 stars Sic Fi or love story 5 July 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I think this book struggles with its identity, It can't make up its mind if its a science fiction novel or a love story. The science fiction element is really quite good, it has an interesting and intriguing story line. The technology on the whole is credible albeit the pace at which it gets developed takes some believing, but oh my God the love stories that seem to pop up throughout the book are so corny that it makes me cringe. The author is obsessed with the main characters kissing and dancing at every opportunity which I found unnecessary and boring. It's almost like the book was written by two separate people. But hey if you like a bit of romance with your sci fi then this book's for you. I'm afraid i won't be reading the sequel though, just too slushy for me.

1.0 out of 5 stars Tiresome!!!! 22 Jan 2013
By Redit
Format:Kindle Edition
Seriously? This book is spectacularly wooden and two dimensional. Wish I had paid attention to the review by "theodlite" (see below) because it was absolutely on the mark:

"This book just didn't cut it. The characters were wooden and too perfect, beautiful women with incredible brains, handsome men who could save the world / galaxy without breaking sweat.

The obsession with dancing and falling in love at the drop of a hat was not believable.

The progression of technology at a staggering rate that would have made Einstein give up and live in a mud hut!

It all adds up to a poor read, definitely not recommended."

There are much much better books out there and don't say you weren't warned if you do read this thing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great read. 30 Oct 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you like a good read, but you have enough set backs and failures in your life. Then it's nice to read a story where things pull through. I enjoyed this book. I have the next already to read! It's all about what your looking for, if you want everything going wrong all the time, with a moment of breakthrough, only for it to go pear shaped again. Don't read this one, it's full of problems that are overcome. It makes a nice change to escape into an alternative world, but then again, it's only the first book......

3.0 out of 5 stars Easy read, same old story 28 May 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Having read two other series by this author, I thought I'd give this one a go too.

Firstly, it easy to read. No complicated science or philosophy or anything like that.
Secondly, it is quite fast paced, the story just goes past like a juggernaut.
Thirdly, it is sadly very repetitious in the extreme of the other series.

We have grey ships, blue ships etc. We already had ships of different colours in the other series. Next we have fantastic rates of scientific progress. You though the last 70 years were fast? These books have humanity progressing at thousands of times that rate. And it's all done by one or two brilliant people. Of course. And the brilliant people have to fall in lover, eternal love, never ending, all-enduring, love. And humanity is better in these books than it can ever be in any real world scenario. It has no deceit, criminals are simply mis-understood, abused individuals who just need to be shown some love to change their ways etc etc etc.

After three series of this (Annihilation, Ashes of Realm and now this one) these ideas get stale. You get tempted to skip bit, pages even. And you can, because in these mushy bits nothing important actually happens.

But don't skip the sci-fi bits. The space battles, the descriptions of space, stars, planets, galaxies. These are what makes the books actually readable in the end. Hence 3 stars for this one.

The descriptions of the space battles remind me of when I was a teenager and discovered EE Doc Smith's Lensman series. They convey that same wonderful sense of awe.

I bought the next book in this series and will read it soon. Sadly it may be the last at this rate. I'm fed up of reading about finding life partners now.

4.0 out of 5 stars A shaky start 18 Mar 2013
By bill
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have just finished the final volume in this set of four. Getting past this first in the series was a close run thing.

I found the dialogue in volume 1 to be clumsy and unbelievable. Characters expressed undying love in terms which one might expect to find in a teenage magazine. The story, while not exactly high literature was, however, sufficiently gripping that I wanted to find out what happened and bought the other three books. Four stars on the strength of the improvement from volume 2 onwards.
