Songs of the Osirian

$ 1



Description : It was written ... beings known as Servants of Light appeared as gifts to Man. Their majesty unlike anything seen; their Songs so angelic a single melody turned barren soil fertile. They were worshiped and called Osirian. For years they shared knowledge, bringing peace and prosperity to mankind. But when an ancient evil awoke and corrupted the world, the Osirian swapped books for swords and led Man to war. Victory came at a price. The aftermath created disillusioned men and woman who angrily rejected their teachers, and in grief the Osirian disappeared. Their knowledge and wisdom lost to history. But they were all betrayed. The evil remained … 

Three-thousand years later, archaeologist Mary Wilson unwittingly assists its resurgence. But this time, the Songs of the Osirian are silent. Bonus short story "The Last of Us" by Rob James is included at the end of the book.

Author Details

About : Christopher D. Abbott is a Reader's Favorite award winning author.

He has a background in human behavioural studies and psychology. Having worked in IT, communications, safety and health, and sales, he gained a good understanding of people and their behaviours. Abbott is a self-confessed avid reader of crime fiction, and he took creative writing courses, which fuelled his ambition to publish a character driven crime story. He loves quirky characters such as Rodney David Wingfield's Inspector "Jack" Frost, Agatha Christie's Poirot, and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes. The Idea of Dr Pieter Straay, his Dutch Criminal Psychologist, came about by integrating the qualities he admires best in these characters.

In his Fantasy Osirian series, Abbott developed the characters of the pantheon of the Gods into unique blending of Ancient Egyptian Mythology with humanistic traits.

Steve Catto
About: Steve Catto is an old man, or at least that's what it says on his birth certificate. He was born in Yorkshire, but his parents took him to Australia when he was six years old and he grew up there, sometimes racing cars across the desert.

He was never very good at school, but the one thing he did learn was how to learn, and he started writing programs for the computer at the local university, much to the disdain of his teachers who told him that he would ‘never make a living out of that rubbish'. In his late teens he returned to the UK, and his parents followed him – which wasn't what he wanted because he was hoping to get away from them. His first proper job was in the computer department of an infamous Oxford publishing company, and he subsequently went on to write software for electricity control systems, and simulators for the military. He started to fly gliders and wrote programs to analyse the data from aircraft flight recorders, where he also learned to fly, and crash, lots of other types of aircraft as well – which was the best part of the job. At various times in his career he has also lived and worked in France, Switzerland, and Canada, and he now lives in Scotland. Since appearing in school plays as a child he has performed almost continuously on the amateur stage, and spent a few years scuba diving. These two things have nothing to do with each other. In terms of his pedigree as an author he has written many technical manuals and filled in countless timesheets, so is well versed in the art of conjuring up works of fiction, however he has never written a novel before, especially not one that involves a blonde girl and a man with a bow and arrow, but he did once spend three weeks working in a factory that made handles for buckets.
