EarthUnder: The Meteorite Chronicles
“Alone, relentlessly, numbingly alone, with nothing to do and nowhere to go…”
Thus begins Bryce Monroe Sterling’s quest for valuable space rocks and a priceless meteorite in the Great Sand Sea. As a seasoned adventurer, Bryce knows his way around this distant corner of the world – he has loyal friends, dependable associates, and great luck! And as anyone with such excellent connections and natural talent for finding what he seeks, Bryce also has an arch nemesis: Claus Laurent – a man intent on getting in the way of Bryce’s deals, and perhaps even seriously harming him in this quest for the Holy Grail of meteorites: one that might prove the existence of life somewhere out there in the vast universe.
Bryce is not only an experienced meteorite hunter, but also a passionate observer of life all around him. He loves traveling the globe for the sake of meeting people, watching the children play, admiring the constant hum of the communities he visits – which makes him the perfect person to help the breath-taking Jasmina save the planet. Bryce’s keen observations and musings on the beautiful parts of everyday life are juxtaposed against the sad remarks of how pollution, greed, and human self-indulgence are ravaging our world. These constant ruminations carry with them the weighty significance of Bryce’s mission: to enlighten humanity through knowledge, persuade them to change their covetous ways, and save the beauty that the Terans have worked for so long to create and protect.
Edwin Thompson’s enthusiasm for meteorites, curiosity, and scientific advancements are evident throughout the narrative of The Meteorite Chronicles: EarthUnder. As an avid meteorite hunter, he is able to draw from personal experience to fill Bryce’s own eyes and innermost thoughts with vivid descriptions of world travels. Yet, the imaginative aspect of this story is also a rich and layered account, willing the reader along for this unearthly ride.
