The Song of Shambhala: The Remnants ebook, a free sneak peak of music infused ebook series written in the spirit of the Alchemist, serves as the story-world spine to an inspiring modern myth, music and an online community.
“When he was young Sheridan believed music could change the world, now he must believe one song can save it.”
Sheridan Clark is an expert in antiquities relating to music, and the former conductor of the Vatican choir; but he has fallen on hard times. Sheridan is recruited by Evan Grant, a shady U.N. operative, to retrieve the Baton of Shambhala, an ancient artifact said to be used by the Archangel Lucifer to direct the chorus of heaven before his fall from grace. Evan wants to gain the baton before it falls into the hands of enemies that may push the world into war. They journey to the Himalayas, where Sheridan is led to the lost city of Shambhala by Kunchen, a young Tibetan monk. Sheridan retrieves the Baton from the top of the King’s Tower and receives a spirit message from an Ageless Sage who reveals Sheridan’s true quest: Sheridan must find the three sacred Chintamani Stones that form the base of the baton, and the Song of Shambhala will be revealed. He has only until the time of The Last Dawn to complete the task, or the world will be plunged into darkness.
I picked this book up cause of the mention of Lucifer in the premise. Although it wasn’t what I expected initially, I enjoyed this short book. The story is full of action and it’s really a page turner. I wish it was longer though.
The e-book is filled with hidden sites that take us to slideshows, videos and other interesting things, which make reading Song of Shambhala: The Remnants even more intriguing. I’ll be looking forward to other books by Phillip R. White!
