When the Solar Flash jolted Earth and spawned storms, most panicked, but a few with jolted genomes spawned their own storms and seized their opportunity.
Readers' Favorite Book Reviews calls this, “...a spellbinding introduction to the ‘New Earth Chronicles,’ a compelling science fiction tale with post-apocalyptic undertones and a setting in 2034.” [See the full endorsement below.]
Forewarned by ancient manuscripts of the coronal mass ejection of 2034, the controllers head to protection in underground caverns with their minions and military. After Solar Flash, they return topside to a destroyed infrastructure, yet hastily resume their long-hidden schemes. Cut off from the web of power governing the Union of the Americas, the remnant of the ruling class tracks down the Anunnaki/human hybrid, Eena.
Eena and Gavin are among those abandoned on the surface that survive aircraft falling from skies, raging winds, and unrelenting electrical storms. Revulsion grips her when the new rulers offer her a rise in status by working in a lab to clone infants—the secret future work force.
ALL THE WHILE, those privy to ancient writings closely guard an even bigger secret—a game-changer. Solar Flash is the greatest boon ever offered weaponless, impoverished humanity, for a secret component of human DNA, dormant for millennia, is switching on thanks to electro-magnetic pulses from the sun.
When Eena discovers at last the portal to ancient Mu, she finds the giant augurs that fly there. Their help may be the last, best chance to achieve human sovereignty.

“The Augur’s View by Victoria Lehrer is a spellbinding introduction to the ‘New Earth Chronicles,’ a compelling science fiction tale with post-apocalyptic undertones and a setting in 2034. ... This novel is a strong opening to a promising series that marks the author apart as one to watch. It begins with a compelling premise, an apocalyptic moment, but then when Earth is devastated, something new emerges, something even more powerful and deadlier. Victoria Lehrer is a great storyteller and she succeeds in creating different levels in the story, with a complex plot that is packed with action and surprising moments. The characters are elaborately developed. The plot is enriched by covert activities and intrigue. There is a powerful sense of mystery—secrets hidden in ancient manuscripts and other worlds to explore. The Augur’s View is exciting, featuring an imaginary setting that goes far beyond the world we know.”
“The Augur’s View by Victoria Lehrer is a thrilling science fiction story, parts of it closer to the truth than we may ever know! The story jumps right into the action on the first page and there is no let up for the entire read. Victoria has created a compelling story, filled with action, suspense and intrigue. Her characters are wonderful, developed fully with enough backstory to give them an air of reality. The story is paced well; no dead spots where nothing happens, just steady thrilling adventure all the way. A reader could probably draw a number of parallels between this story and what might happen in real-life should nuclear war erupt. Great story, you won’t put it down.”
“What makes this novel unique? First, it is the dystopian setting and the dramatic images against the backdrop of a splintering Union of the Americas in 2034. This setting and the phenomenal event of the Solar Flash create the environment where intrigue and the quest for power develops, a conflict that is fueled by secrets associated with an ancient manuscript. The plot has many levels and it is interesting how the author allows the conflict to evolve in the different points of the plot. The Augur’s View features memorable characters, an ingeniously plotted story, a phenomenal conflict, and a world that is exciting to navigate, a blend of a dying Earth and another dimension. The Augur’s View by Victoria Lehrer is a riveting, exceptional story for fans of dystopian and science fiction novels.”
“Victoria Lehrer has written a compelling kickoff to the ‘New Earth Chronicles’ series with The Augur’s View. She presents a dystopian world as it exists post Solar Blast, a coronal mass ejection which fries the electronics of every unshielded device in the world. Victoria Lehrer has tackled a story with a huge number of initial plot elements in play, and done it well. The Augur’s View sets the stage for what will almost certainly be a worthy series. I particularly liked Gavin and his heroic quest struggles to fit into the augur rider community. Dora’s serendipitous introduction was handled adroitly and she will also be an interesting character to follow. I enjoyed this book and look forward to reading the second installment.”
