The finish line was moments away.
The Eyes of the Sea
by Alberto Guaita Tello
In the early 1970’s, on the Cameroonian coast in western Africa, young Fanya and her grandmother, a tribal healer known as Mama Simone, find a wounded, unconscious being lying on the beach, tangled in a mass of seaweed. The strange creature is human-like and goes by the name of Sharduk.
Together the two women try to save Sharduk’s life, healing his wounds and hiding him in a mangrove swamp. When he awakens, Sharduk tells them about the distant world he comes from, Telluria, and how he came to ours through a mysterious portal called a crossing point.
Fanya and the convalescent Sharduk soon fall in love, but due to dangerous circumstances he must leave her, promising to return with a safe means for them to travel together back to his world through the underwater crossing point that had brought him here.
Thus begins an epic story full of adventure, romance, African magic, and science fiction, with surprising twists and turns along the way. It’s a tale that takes us to new worlds and new mysteries, as Fanya and Sharduk find themselves confronting prejudice in their respective societies, as well as terrible enemies.Available at Amazon
