The sun's rays emanated from the fissure above, a fracture less than a couple of meters wide. The light bore down on them so they had little difficulty in seeing what was ahead, but their peripheral vision was almost nonexistent.

"This place gives me the creeps," Catalina said.

"It's because of the light," Eric countered. "It gives the place an unearthly appearance."

Catalina shivered. Although her clothes were wet, she wasn't thinking so much about her discomfort as the treasure, more specifically the Golden Disk of the Sun. "You're right on that score."

Eric would have much preferred the steamy environment of the jungle than this place. As he followed the light coming from above, a strange foreboding came over him. For a reason he couldn't explain, he sensed they were not alone. He turned toward Catalina. "Have you noticed we're going deeper into the mountain?"

Her voice was barely above a whisper. "No, but it's colder . . . there is also less light."

Chris shined his light away from the fissure into the blackness. "Our flashlights won't do us much good. Not in this place. We better leave well before the sun sets."

They descended farther into the grotto. Suddenly, Catalina's scream filled the chamber; magnified tenfold, her echo could be heard again and again reverberating in the cavernous room.

Everyone froze.

About this Book

Eric Shade, a former South American history professor, is hired by Catalina Rivera, a beautiful archeologist, to help her and her fiancé locate a fabulous treasure once belonging to an Inca queen that has been hidden for centuries in the deep jungles of Brazil. In order to locate the treasure, they must first scale a formidable mountain, a mountain the native Indians won't go near because they claim it's occupied by a group of strange pale-skinned men, which they refer to as the Star Walkers.

The farther the group travels into the rain forest, the more Shade begins to suspect that the Star Walkers are more than just a myth. As they traverse jungle-choked canyons and steep gorges, facing danger at every turn, hatred, treachery and betrayal enter into play. Not only must Shade brave the cloying dangers of an inhospitable terrain, but he must also ward off an insanely jealous man who is hell-bent on killing him.

A Review

Feel free to use all or part of the following, and edit to suit. This content was prepared for your use. We ask no acknowledgement of any kind.

Golden Disk of the Sun, by Michael Cole, is the first novel in a series about Dr. Eric Shade, a former professor of South American history, and his growing interest in the Star Walkers.

Through the eyes of its principal character, Eric Shade, the author provides the reader with a microcosmic view of the Amazon and its mysteries.

Catalina Rivera, a beautiful archeologist, acquires an ancient sealed water jar for Phillip Nash, her rich eccentric benefactor and fiancé, whose passion is to collect South American antiquities. Much to Catalina's surprise, the jar contains a set of directions to a hoard of gold buried deep inside a mountain where the Indians claim the Star Walkers live. According to an ancient myth, the Star Walkers are a group of gods who had come from the sky to impart their ancient knowledge to the Indians living in Mato Grosso, Brazil.

Against his better judgment, Shade agrees to guide Phillip and Catalina to this treasure. On their quest to find a legendary fabled mirror called the Golden Disk of the Sun, not only is Eric stalked by a group of mysterious Indians, but he is also confronted with the dangers of the mountain: quicksand, landslides, brutal killer storms, and vicious animal predators.

Even though Shade's primary objective is to locate a fabulous ancient artifact the Incas hid from the rapacious Spaniards, he becomes drawn to the Star Walkers and the mysteries of the mountain where they supposedly live, particularly when he discovers a gold statue. However, Nash's erratic unpredictable behavior makes it extremely difficult for him to follow up on these leads.

When an unprecedented event takes place, even the formidable mountain they have been climbing and the Star Walkers must take a back seat—for Eric must now reach deep within himself to make one of two choices, neither of which he finds appealing.

While The Star Walkers is a trilogy, each book stands alone with a satisfying conclusion.
