GENRE: FANTASY, MAGIC REALISM
THE GENESIS OF PARADIGM LOST
by R. Roderick Rowe
Cernon's arrival in the Founder's Grove began a new era in human history. For decades he and some of his followers have lived in the Founder's Grove where he protects The Children of Jamari. The Sophia Shaman decides that it's time to find out where he came from and what he's all about.
Sophia steps into the most bold and dangerous shamanic journey she’s ever made in order to learn more about Cernon’s beginning – only to learn that her journey could well have triggered his creation!
Tens of thousands of years in the past, Sophia and Cernon encounter a small tribe on the verge of extinction as an ice age approaches. Sophia immediately sets out to help this people Cernon has led her to.
When she finally stops to think, she wonders, did she start something rolling along the waves of time, or did the waves of time capture her as a tool to shape the world?
“You were never really there,” Cernon told her when they returned. “You were riding my memories of a time so far in the past that even I had forgotten it.”
And then explorers found the cave with depictions carved deeply into the stone. Depictions that defied the whole of human history.
