Lyda: A Quest to Find Her Anunnaki Ancestors. Robert E. Bonson. XLibris. October 2014. 268 pp. paperback and e-book. ASIN #: B00P0LMYK8.
Lyda is a young, 30 year-old woman whose haunting dreams have led her to believe that she is the descendant of the ancient Anunnaki people, a group of extraterrestrial beings who came to Earth with a well-defined mission. They would experiment with DNA and actually be responsible for creating men and women, servants who would be able to provide the mine materials the Anunnaki needed on their home planet. But things go awry in this process and the Anunnaki historically create a flood that destroys most of Earth’s inhabitants at the time. Now Lyda is seeking to discover her background which involves a secret Amulet with supernatural powers from the Anunnaki.
She engages the help of an investigative author, Russell, and his fiancé Carol; a man, Fenton Stonefeather, who has the power to visualize places and objects from far away just by sitting near an envelope with minimal details about the condition in question; a clairvoyant, Clarene Davis; a former detective, Jim Menard; and the couple Alden and Jocelyn, who host this large group who will each contribute something to Lyda’s quest.
Now begins the battle, for there are warring divisions within the Anunnaki. Two in particular want to find the Amulet and keep it from Lyda; these two have different reasons having to do with the Earth’s over-population and depletion of resources. One will bring hope but the other unmitigated disaster!
Lyda… is a detailed read that also includes geography and history of the Mesopotamian area of the Middle East as well as the famous Epic of Gilgamesh. To a large extent it’s based on Sumerian clay tablets that reveal secrets of the Anunnaki. The essence of the story raises the question of whether or not this super-race of beings from another planet left behind a segment of humans specifically created to carry out Anunnaki plans for the planet and what may be the consequences if these plans fail.
Lyda is fascinating reading, especially for those who enjoy paranormal stories! Nicely done, R. Bonson!
