Hello there folks, and welcome to another edition of Live from the Otherworld. We’re happy to be back with an awesome quasi-mythological fantasy with some deliciously dark undertones.
In Serpent Priestess of the Annunaki, the first book in the Dragon Court series, the titular Ninkha faces a great many challenges. Author Katrina Sisowath faces what would seem like a batch of her own, juggling elements of mythology, dark fantasy and even sci-fi with ease. All these ingredients are served up as a cohesive treat to readers, who will be happy to know that two sequels have been released following this awesome book.
The Annunaki on Nibiru lack precious metals, stones and minerals, which they desire, food on Nibiru is also running low. Their solution: establish a colony on a distant planet teeming with wildlife and vegetation. When the Annunaki discover they are ill equipped to labor under the harsh conditions found on Earth, they create a workforce called humans, a hybrid manufactured from their DNA and a species known as hominid.
The Serpent Priestess Ninkha and her husband Lord Enki are charged with this task, battling not only the challenges faced adjusting to life on Earth, but Enki’s brother, Enlil, as well. Will the humans live as Enki and Ninkha envisioned–able to learn, create and above all, reason? Or will they subjugate themselves to Enlil and his rule willingly?
At stake is the future of the Priestesses of Damuth, who, along with their serpents, service the Annunaki with their own blood, providing those who partake of the cocktail of blood and venom the ultimate in achieving a higher state of consciousness, along with youth, vigour and longevity. If Enlil, whose disdain of them is well-known, wins, what will happen to them?
To protect themselves and their descendants they form the ‘Dragon Court’, but is it enough?
Serpent Priestesses or Witches, Gods or Demons,
Aliens or Ancestors, Oppressors or Creators?
Perhaps all of the above…
If that blurb doesn’t get your blood pumping, you might want to check your pulse and make sure you’re still alive. People seem to enjoy this fantasy tale, and if those elements that Sisowath juggles so effortlessly appeal to you, you’re sure to enjoy it as well. Check it out on Amazon today.
