When an archaeologist alien invites you on a quest to discover hidden treasure, you don't say no. And the fact that his handsome, blue-skinned assistant will be along for the ride, is an added bonus.

For space and time adventurer, Quality Times, the chance to go exploring in the caves of Azrokaran is too good an opportunity to refuse. But a startling discovery leads to a trip back in time, and loyalties are tested to the limits as those within the group reveal their true colours.

The first book in the Quality Times series.

This carefully crafted ebook: “Treasure Island + The Mysterious Island (2 Unabridged Classics)” is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. Treasure Island is an adventure novel by Scottish author Robert Louis Stevenson, narrating a tale of "buccaneers and buried gold". First published as a book on May 23, 1883, it was originally serialized in the children's magazine Young Folks between 1881–82 under the title Treasure Island or, the mutiny of the Hispaniola with Stevenson adopting the pseudonym Captain George North. Traditionally considered a coming-of-age story, Treasure Island is an adventure tale known for its atmosphere, characters and action, and also as a wry commentary on the ambiguity of morality — as seen in Long John Silver — unusual for children's literature now and then. It is one of the most frequently dramatized of all novels. The influence of Treasure Island on popular perceptions of pirates is enormous, including treasure maps marked with an "X", schooners, the Black Spot, tropical islands, and one-legged seamen carrying parrots on their shoulders. The Mysterious Island (French: L'Île mystérieuse) is a novel by Jules Verne, published in 1874. The novel is a crossover sequel to Verne's famous Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea and In Search of the Castaways, though thematically it is vastly different from those books. An early draft of the novel, initially rejected by Verne's publisher and wholly reconceived before publication, was titled Shipwrecked Family: Marooned With Uncle Robinson, seen as indicating the influence on the novel of Robinson Crusoe and The Swiss Family Robinson." The book tells the adventures of five American prisoners of war on an uncharted island in the South Pacific. Begining in the American Civil War, as famine and death ravage the city of Richmond, Virginia, five northern POWs decide to escape in a rather unusual way – by hijacking a balloon! This is only the beginning of their adventures...
Seeking Sirius, #1 of the Crystal Ceres Time Travel books 

2001 Space Odyssey meets the metaphysics of Interstellar 

240 pages


Alexa Jane Alden is about to claim her happily-ever-after. But before she can complete plans for her wedding on a Bahamas beach, she is hijacked—to a thousand years forward in time and a planet far, far away. 

There is a way back from the future, but only if Alexa can locate a specific mystical Master of Masters. The challenge is finding a master of the universe who keeps his location unknown, and has a habit of vanishing into thin air at will—maybe for forever.

While searching for her way home, Alexa realizes the package entrusted to her care is attracting dangerous attention. The very key for accomplishing her heart’s desire is also one that an ancient murderous computer—with minions desperate to do its bidding—is willing to maim and kill to possess. 

A suspenseful SciFi adventure, woven with metaphysical secrets, Seeking Sirius is all about self-trust, in the midst of chaos.



Interview with the Author: 

Q - Why seeking Sirius? 

A – After consulting with the world-class astronomy department at the University of Texas in Austin (where I studied astronomy as an undergraduate student) I chose the star Sirius because it is 8.6 light years away from Earth and is in the right direction for Alexa to show up on Adalans. Only later did I discover that many cultures through time have considered that star special in metaphysical terms.


Q - How did a certain robot in this story become so advanced?

A - The robot’s creator in the early twenty-first century included instructions for it to continue improving his/its programming and its physical appearance.


Q – In what order should I read the books? 

A – The series does follow a logical thread because the protagonist is on a quest, but each story turns on its own plot. Here’s the sequence: 


Seeking Sirius

Jaguar Transit 

A third novel is in progress, to complete the story


Q - So, why should readers give these books a try? 


A – Seeking Sirius and Jaguar Transit (book #2) are a mix of Science Fiction, Time Travel and Metaphysical genres, with a little romance thrown in. There’s also suspense, as well as action and adventure, to keep you on the edge.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Together in one volume—the first three books in the world’s most beloved science-fiction series!

DRAGONFLIGHT

On a beautiful world called Pern, an ancient way of life is about to come under attack. Lessa is an outcast survivor—her parents murdered, her birthright stolen—a strong young woman who has never stopped dreaming of revenge. But when an ancient threat reemerges, Lessa will rise—upon the back of a great dragon with whom she shares a telepathic bond more intimate than any human connection. Together, dragon and rider will fly, and Pern will be changed forever.

DRAGONQUEST

Since Lessa and Ramoth, her golden queen dragon, traveled into the past to bring forward a small army of dragons and riders to save their world from deadly alien spores, fear and desperation have spread across the land. But while the dragonriders struggle with threats both human and otherworldly, a young rider named F’nor and his brown dragon, Canth, hatch a bold plan to destroy the alien scourge at its source—the baleful Red Star that fills the heavens and promises doom to all. 

THE WHITE DRAGON

Never in the history of Pern has there been a dragon like Ruth. Mocked by other dragons for his small size and pure white color, Ruth is smart, brave, and loyal—qualities that he shares with his rider, the young Lord Jaxom. Unfortunately, Jaxom is also looked down upon by his fellow lords, and by other riders as well. His dreams of joining the dragonriders in defending Pern are dismissed. What else can Jaxom and Ruth do but strike out on their own, pursuing in secret all they are denied? But in doing so, the two friends will find themselves facing a desperate choice—one that will push their bond to the breaking point . . . and threaten the future of Pern itself.
