The War of Ages - Ceri London, Sci-Fi Author

Ceri London writes a blend of high-powered science fiction and thriller filled with charismatic but believable characters that show the human psyche at its best and worst. Her exciting War of Ages series confronts the military mindset with hard science, metaphysical powers, and political intrigue to uncover an ancient truth that spans a universe of space time.


(formerly published as Shimmer In The Dark ) 

   “a masterful blend of high tech, esoteric knowledge, paranormal phenomena, and government conspiracies along with a generous dose of Erich von Däniken’s “ancient alien” theory.”

Marcha Fox, Author of Star Trails Tetralogy

One man. Two worlds.

The chains of command only stretch so far.

He’s a conduit to alien invasion. A security threat. To the same country he swore to defend from its enemies, both foreign and domestic. Hard to tell the difference when his growing powers unleash an ancient truth. Time to go rogue.


Hunted. Sacrificed.

“This man isn’t the exclusive property of the US any longer. He is answerable to the world.” How far can one man travel to preserve a world that has turned on him?

Niall Kearey is US Air Force. Special Forces. His job to save lives. On Earth. Not on Astereal, a world across the universe. He’s not insane. Except the hazy threads of a childhood dream keep intruding on his life. Creating havoc. The reason he’s alive beyond all reasonable expectations, and these aliens won’t be denied. To the humanoid telepaths of Astereal, Niall’Kearey is legend, a military leader in a war dating back to ancient times. Now dark stars are tearing Astereal apart and prophecy says he can save them. From an apocalypse.

On Earth, Niall’s growing psychic abilities have attracted unwanted attention, exposing his family to danger. A rescue attempt results in catastrophe. His secret is out and his life shattered. Then, with alien invasion a real threat, the US government designates him a security risk as a secret political conspiracy seeks to control both him and this first contact with extra-terrestrials.

Niall is torn, between protecting his loved ones, saving an alien race, and his duty to Earth, but when history opens his eyes to the full potential of his latent powers, he finally confronts the disturbing scale of his dilemma.

It’s time to go rogue. The mission? Human survival.

Major Niall Kearey is the only man capable of bridging space-time to create portals across the known universe. His government and the US military exploit his abilities, a secret society incites global unease in a bid to control him, and the alien refugees he smuggled to Earth revere him as the fulfillment of ancient prophecy.

Under threat of exposure, a potential one-man weapon of mass destruction, Niall and his family are forced back into hiding. Struggling to protect his wife and children, honor his oath to God and country, Kearey discovers he’s attracted the attention of a devourer of worlds – the legendary Balor – an enemy so powerful it enslaves or destroys everyone in its path.

The world needs Niall Kearey and his abilities, but the shady politics and dirty maneuverings of Earth’s power-brokers have tied his hands. Shackled by the unceasing suspicion and assaults on his liberty, Niall desperately seeks a means to protect planet Earth against the ancient predator hunting him down. Whether Balor’s purpose is Apocalypse or invasion, the threat escalates as Niall realizes the answer to the future lies in the past—his past.

"Ceri London has written, in “Shimmer In The Dark: Rogue Genesis” one of the most powerful science fiction novels I have read since “Dune”. "Well, actually, it is better than “Dune”. More creative, with a wider range and depth of reality, that is approachable to all readers." "This is, without doubt, a science fiction novel, but it also has strong ties to military-political intrigue in the present day which grounds the novel in a level of believability even when the "fiction" portion of the science asks you to stretch your mind into new levels of belief."  — L. Cooper (soireadthisbooktoday.com) http://soireadthisbooktoday.com/2013/07/21/review-shimmer-in-the-dark-rogue-genesis-by-ceri-london/
"a complex, highly intelligent and competently written Science Fiction / fantasy thriller." "The concept of time folds, time warps, astral travel or whatever phrase you would like to use for this double existence is highly original, fascinating and certainly unique. It made the story stand out from others in the genre just for that." Christoph Fischer, Author http://www.christophfischerbooks.com/shimmer-in-the-dark-rogue-genesis-by-ceri-london-review-intervi...            

"I tend to separate my science fiction into two categories. In some SFF, the science part is just a story element used as a setting or a device to keep the plot moving forward. Then there are the tales where the science is integral to the story, almost like another main character.

Rogue Genesis is the latter, the kind of science fiction where I found myself googling terms like “geo-magnetic flux” and “ley lines” in my spare time. But lest you be frightened away by the science, fear not, good reader! The story of Major Niall Kearey, USAF, is a great read with lots of well-developed characters and military-political intrigue." — David Bruns, SFF Author http://davidbruns.com/2014/03/rogue-genesis/

"As a science fiction fan and author myself I absolutely love Ceri London’s work. Her characters are convincing, exciting and charismatic which, combined with her ability to create a complex mix of science, technology, government intrigue, the military mindset and esoteric subjects, results in a masterful blend of high-powered science fiction. Her “Shimmer in the Dark” series possesses all the suspense and intrigue of my old-time favorite author, Michael Crighton, clearly the stuff that best sellers are made of."  Marcha Fox, SF Author https://marcha2014.wordpress.com/2015/01/23/a-glimpse-into-the-science-fictiontechno-thriller-world-...
