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 BuildersDr. 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.

This is another good book from Andrew Saxon. As usual I would put this one in the Young Adult category. It pretty much follows the same (or at least a similar) formula as his Annihilation series which means that the good guys are really good guys and the bad guys are really bad guys and the latter t...
