The Threshold Bookcast : Chapter 13 : Keys To Ascension



Chapter 13 : Keys To Ascension

Rahu Lüli, the teenage monk from Kõrgus, is once again the central character of the weekly instalment of the Threshold Bookcast.

This time, we find the novice reminiscing as he explores unknown territory uphill, following a hunch that has occurred to him prior to the morning ritual.

« « Gazing up, the apprentice had detected an odd detail. Something was decidedly wrong about the view, and it couldn't but have a meaning. Over the years, the pitch black walls of the cylindrical hole had obviously been darkened by the combustion fumes rising from the cauldrons of scented oil. Yet, the fact that there was no light at all coming from its high end seemed rather singular. The sun had already appeared above the horizon, and so the sky had been bright enough to be visible. And, as the smoke wasn't accumulating under the dome, there couldn't have been some unidentified obstacle blocking its passage. { Something doesn't add up } he ruminated, still feeling compelled to investigate as he advanced upwards. » »



Eventually reaching his intended destination, the young cenobite makes a surprising encounter. The unexpected meeting will provide him the perfect opportunity to elucidate some of the mysteries of the Tähtsaim, and obtain answers to some of his own questions.

Here's « Keys To Ascension, » the thirteenth chapter of The Threshold Series. Wishing you a most pleasant reading !




On a background of environmental and financial crises, and religious influences intertwining with political manoeuvres to determine the fate of an overpopulated planet, The Threshold Series chronicles the saga of the Ovelian civilization, a society very similar to our own, as it heads towards one of the most dramatic chain of events of its history.

The first book, « 2206 : Window Onto A New World, » focuses on the end of the year 2206, which culminates on an important federal election that will be impacted by the discovery of an anomaly in the nearby outer space.

Each episode of The Threshold Bookcast consists in a complete chapter of the series, made available for free online reading.

For more details about the series and the bookcast, please see the introduction.
