When The Gods Play

If all games imitate life, that then means Life itself is a game.

Action-adventure with light science-fiction/ trans-dimensional crossover

In the darkest days of World War 2, British Prime Minister Winston Churchill tasks special operations (SOE) agent Percival Knight to locate a fabled Lost City deep within Mount Olympus, the Place of the Gods. There a game-changing doomsday device (wunderwaffe), a relic of a war fought between the Ancients of Atlantis and Athens before recorded time, is cached. Knight must beat Adolf Hitler and his Nazis to the draw, to prevent them from unleashing the weapon’s destructive power against the world.

Judging by Hitler’s successes up to this point in the war, it seems he has the luck of the Devil. Some might say he made a pact with the Devil.

In order for the SOE to gain access to the Lost City, female agent Fey Morgan must first infiltrate Hitler’s lair, the Berghof. There she must steal from under his nose an ancient artefact, the Ankh (Key of Life), given to him by kingmaker/ mystic Maria Orsic.

Orsic, the leader of the Vril Society, wears her hair ankle-length because it acts as an antenna, enabling her to pick up signals from the ether. She bears an uncanny resemblance to Napoleon’s wife, Josephine, and other historic women of influence.

Once at the Berghof, agent Fey Morgan ends up having to side-step Eva Braun’s advances (it turns out Eva’s not the clean-cut Aryan girl we thought we knew).

Actually, nothing is as we thought we knew it. NOT EVEN LIFE ITSELF.

Neville Melville is a bestselling non-fiction author and academic writer who has gone across to the dark (and fun) side of writing, with this foray into the world of fiction.

He developed an interest in the history of WW2 from hearing first-hand accounts from his late mother and grandfather, who were both in the thick of it. The more he read on the subject, the more he wondered whether Hitler really had a pact with the Devil.

After reading the likes of Lobsang Rampa’s The Cave of the Ancients and Graham Hancock’s Fingerprints of the Gods, he came to question whether there was not an alternative truth that the historians and archeologists have been concealing from mankind. 

Most of his inspiration for this book came to him while in the shower, which he is now convinced is a portal to the Tree of Knowledge/Akashic Records.
