Omega

Evolution is what moves us forward. But evolution isn't something we get to observe. But what if we could? In the world of Omega, Alphas are the next stage of human evolution. Are they dangerous or misunderstood? There are Alphas, Deltas, Kappas, Sigmas and Taus. Follow the adventures of Jake Mayne, as he discovers his identity, and his journey of danger, friendship and really bad humor.Long, long ago in a land at the edge of a desert that howls against the walls of the village, a poor young boy named Samir is sent to work for a strange old man who stays up all night listening to the stars. In his curiosity to find out why, Samir stumbles upon a secret and is swept up in an epic journey across the ancient world. It is up to him and his brother Hamdan - with a lot of help from Munira, the camel - to deliver a very special treasure to a king and perhaps rescue their land from disaster. Can they overcome thieves and a sandstorm to reach their destination in time?This imaginative reconstruction of the tale of the Magi will appeal to children aged five and over, and draws on real astronomical research into the real Christmas Star. The story is set in the ancient Middle East, in which region the author lived for many years - although at a much later date, of course!
