As part of the book tour for Barbara Underwood's latest book, Rhuna, The Star Child, we have the honor of hosting a quest post from the author today! Enjoy her thoughts on ancient, anti-gravity.
Guest Post by Barbara Underwood
I’m sure you’ve seen them many times, making up the pyramids and temples of Ancient Egypt, the structures of the Mayas and Incas, and countless more. I’m talking about the massive stone block with smooth sides and exact angles and measurements which defy modern-day explanations. How were they made, and how on earth were they moved?!
This is one of the subjects that has fascinated me for most of my life, and for the past 20 years I have been reading anything on the subject, slowly gaining more knowledge and forming my own opinions.
If the Ancients had the technology to cut or form massive blocks (out of granite or other stone) to exact measurements and angles, then they would also have had the advanced technology to move and lift them.
So did they perhaps have knowledge of a branch of science or physics that has been lost in the passing of time? A technology to defy gravity, if only temporarily?
I have used these ideas in my Historical Fantasy book series, and this is one of the posts in my brand new blog: http://barbaraunderwood.
Learn about Rhuna, the Star Child
Quick Summary of Rhuna, the Star Child. Rhuna, the Star Child is set in mystical Ancient Egypt where Black Magic was developed by the followers of the legendary villain, The Dark Master. As strange and frightening curses plague the population, Rhuna discovers the underground organization that performs this uncanny new magic, but she can only combat it with the help of her long-lost father. Having learned from her father amazing new skills to empower her on the Astral Plane, Rhuna once again strives to preserve peace and harmony in the idyllic Atlan civilization. Far more challenging than fighting powerful Dark Forces, however, is Rhuna’s personal anguish when her daughter becomes involved with the leader of the Black Magic movement, and the once-perfect Atlan society based on utopian principles begins to crumble all around her. Shocking events escalate Rhuna’s world to a breathless climax as she and her family undergo a momentous upheaval, and she is forced to make great personal sacrifices for her loved ones.
