Eena, an Anunnaki/human hybrid, and her friend Gavin are among those abandoned on the surface after a coronal mass ejection. Even after surviving aircraft falling from the skies, raging winds, and unrelenting electrical storms, revulsion grips Eena when the new rulers offer her a rise in “status” by working in a lab to clone infants—the secret future workforce.
When Eena discovers at last the portal to ancient Mu, and finds the giant augurs that fly there, she enlists their help. It may be the last, best chance to achieve human sovereignty.
D. Donovan, Sr. Reviewer at Midwest Book Review, calls it, “...a fast-paced story that embraces all kinds of social, political, moral, and ethical questions while remaining firmly rooted in the dreams, ambitions, and struggles of young people who reach for a better world. It’s a powerful opener to a hero’s journey in which the world beckons with new opportunity and danger, the promise of futuristic science and technology, and the dreams of survivors who both struggle and love on different levels.”

“At first, Victoria Lehrer’s The Auger’s View seems like a standard post-apocalyptic story of survival and power struggle. Adding further sci-fi elements of a quest, an ancient force, and two teens who struggle to find themselves a place in this deadly new world creates further elements of intrigue and fantasy that take the story beyond one of either survival or control. Lehrer creates a full-flavored world that questions not just the efforts to survive, but the choices and consequences of rebuilding humanity in a different light. The result is a fast-paced story that embraces all kinds of social, political, moral, and ethical questions while remaining firmly rooted in the dreams, ambitions, and struggles of young people who reach for a better world. It’s a powerful opener to a hero’s journey in which the world beckons with new opportunity and danger, the promise of futuristic science and technology, and the dreams of survivors who both struggle and love on different levels. Teen and adult readers alike will appreciate the added layers of complexity and adventure that Victoria Lehrer adds into a vivid story of new discoveries and options for change.”
“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.”
