Fourteen years following the Great Flood that destroyed the continent of Atlantis, the survivors of that mighty civilisation have recreated their flourishing society once again in the beautiful land of Mayach. Deanu, an Atlantean, is the Guardian of the Crystals, a name given to those Atlanteans who carry the genetic marker that allows them to create a symbiotic exchange with the Power Crystal entities. The Power Crystals which power everything in the Atlantean civilisation, are an ancient sentient energy source that originated from the Pleiadian star system, home to the ancestors of the Atlanteans that left their dying planet to colonise Earth over a thousand years ago. The Atlanteans also share the Earth with the Osirion, a highly advanced, war-like race of humanoids from the Orion constellation. The two races are on amicable terms, keeping a distance from each other. The Osirion settled upon the Earth hundreds of thousands of years before the Atlanteans, yet their technology is less sophisticated. An Osirion, named Enkarath, a young engineer from the land of Kemet, visits the Atlanteans to enlist their aid in helping him create a new energy source for his civilisation. With much hesitation from the Atlantean Elders, an agreement is reached for Deanu to help Enkarath establish a new power source for his people. Unfortunately, the technology falls into the hands of a rebel Osirion faction from the red planet, Lahmu, who want to possess the Crystal technology for their own ends including war. Deanu and Enkarath are in a race against time to save their civilisations and the Earth from destruction. Enkarath also discovers his true heritage and link to the Power Crystals and to the beautiful Atlantean woman that steals his heart...

The series of Guardians of the Crystals novels take place in ancient pre-history and has the potential to move forward across time and space. The characters are easy to identify with, going through many of the problems and concerns that happen to everyday people when it comes to decisions, adventure and even romance. Action and adventure, always a villain or threat happening in the works and a possibility that this could have happened in our ancient past that has long been forgotten. The scenes are set in areas of the world where once powerful and highly advanced civilisations ruled the Earth leaving behind only ancient stone ruins today. A glimpse of our world today, mirrored in the ancient past.
