Anomalous Roots One: The Earth, and The Beginning
by Johnny Cross
This is the first in a planned series which incorporates elements of science fiction, fantasy, and philosophy, with a Buddhist subtext. In this book, we are introduced to three main characters: Mitra, a Buddhist monk; and Matt and James, two American teenagers visiting India. We are also introduced to a malevolent conspiracy, to which our characters are unaware, that may have devastating results.
