Gold Rush - By Danny Mendlow

In the end, it was all about the gold. A short story about religion, history, gold and the meaning of life. Oh, and aliens... lots of aliens too."Scanning the maddening scene around her, Trisha sighed under her breath, 'So it has come to pass... Hell is delivered to Heaven’s heights. Look and see! I am Death, Destruction my lover! Today I set the universe ablaze. Phoenix will burn, and the gods will bow low to the Children of Damnation!'"Phoenix... Across the globe, legends of old tell of a majestic, beautiful bird known from antiquity, its age measured in centuries and beyond...a symbol of peace and justice, dying in flames only to be reborn anew from its charred remains. And so it is with this most ancient of civilizations that existed in what seemed eternal peace, breached by rebellion, its innocence smoldering midst the ashes of destruction of all held dear. Children from two realms band together, knowing that the past must perish like the Phoenix, and they the ones to make it burn as they struggle together against the most evil of foes - the oldest one among all of Lowenah’s children - and his hordes of followers. If they find success, the Phoenix will rise again, stronger and more resolute...determined to destroy all that is evil and build anew an existence where love, freedom and peace reign, not only for them, but for those who rest in the Field of the Minds and those yet to be born."The Chronicles of Heaven’s War” saga continues to unfold with this, Book II, “Burning Phoenix”... Come with Trisha as she leads courageous men and women of the Children's Empire into a 'cauldron of Hell', not knowing the outcome, but all determined to stand to the last person for love, freedom, and all things good...and honor Lowenah, the One whose heart is tied in to their success or failure...along with all that exists. Ride with them as they charge the line, fierce and unyielding, unwavering in their quest to destroy all who are evil and return peace, their hope that Phoenix will rise once more...
