Muur Chronicles – A Novel

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF MUUR CHRONICLES

The untold story of the ancient Muur race that lived in Sub-saharan Africa.

SYNOPSIS OF “MUUR CHRONICLES”

After his failed attempt at using his position as the Muurian King to subvert order, and gain access to the Elder Chamber of the Odena, Bonadi was banished and expelled from Muurland. In his stead, the wife became the Queen of the Muurs, a highly advanced empire.

Disgraced, he retired to a secluded life where he dedicated his time to his ultra-advanced technological designs and scientific experiments, also selling some to earn money in the process. He also made an alliance with an enemy of the Muurians, an alliance that will end up almost causing the destruction of his people.

Things took a different turn when his children with the Queen successfully completed a powerful dark forbidden magic from the Muuragi on one of the inhabitants of Duria(earth). Unknown to the children, the father has been secretly attempting same dark ritual for years, but all proved unsuccessful despite his advanced knowledge on the subject matter. Things took a dark turn when he got knowledge of this information after returning from a place called Ramod where his last experiment unintentionally took him to.

His machinations with his old friend, Varodi, a former spy operative, helped him trace the Durian whom the dark forbidden magic was performed on. Their plan to capture, contain and control the Durian (who doesn’t really know the full extent of what was done to him) was met with stiff opposition from Amarandubi, the top universal spy agency of the Muurs. The agency had gotten knowledge of the said ritual after the Durian unknowingly destroyed a big neighborhood in a town called Owerri.

Whilst the Amarandubi canvassed through the country and accross planets looking for the Durian (who is deemed unsafe but is being shielded by his creators, the Queen’s children), a disgruntled nation (Nolnad) who felt cheated out of a powerful source of energy deal, was planning an assault on the capital city of the Muurians called Marrialu.

The main target was to obtain one of the powerful energy orbs (unerg) for themselves. Since they couldn’t attack the Muurs through any conventional means, they utilised an invitation from the Queen to watch a famous daring game held cyclically in the empire’s capital.

The Nolnadian’s succeeded in getting one of the orbs on the games day when they assaulted the capital city of the empire. Their Kings plan succeeded but was thwarted by Bonadi (our central character). He had succeeded in capturing the Durian the dark ritual was performed on, and used his extended influence to gain access to the capital city because of the games only to see that the capital city is under seige. Knowing exactly what was going on, having gotten prior knowledge of the assault from being captured by the Nolnadian king, he headed straight for the Odena which housed the unerg and which is what the Nolnadians were really fighting for.

After defeating the Nolnadian king in a fierce battle at the Elder Chamber of the Odena, he escaped with the encased translucent energy orb called unerg while the Nolnadian king was arrested by an angry Muurian Security Forces who encircled the place. With two of the most powerful energy sources in the universe in his hands (the Durian and the orb called unerg), Bonadi and his men set out to explore and further his machinations with a gift.

But, not before he lured the Muurians into an intergalactic battle with a warring race called Ramod, just to spite them both for the wrong way he perceives they both treated him personally.

MORE INSIGHT ABOUT THE NOVEL

MUUR CHRONICLES is a science fiction adventure and fantasy thriller set on earth, Uriag, Nol and Ramod.

The Muur Chronicles centres around the following:

1) A Muurian King who was banished and exiled for misusing his powers.

2) The Muurian Empire.

3) A Durian( or person from earth) on whom a powerful dark forbidden magic from a mystical book called Muuragi was performed on, giving him enormous powers.

4) A kingdom called Nolnad with an axe to grind with the Muurian empire after they were allegedly cheated out of a powerful source of energy in a bad business deal.

5) A warring Intergalactic empire called Ramod.

Bonadi, the central character of the story who was the king of a glorious intergalactic empire called Muur, found himself teleported out to an unknown land after his experiment on a forbidden ritual went wrong. He was previously banished and exiled from the Muurdom when his attempt to illegally gain access to the Elder Chamber of the Odena almost caused the destruction of the whole Muurland.

The Odena housed the Unerg, one of the most powerful convertible source of energy in the universe. It was well noted that it is to further some of his experiments in secret (so that no-one can question him) that he sought access to the Elder Chambers of the Odena.

His plot was leaked by Zanak, his Chief Security Adviser, Head of Muur Security and a former military man. This was mostly because Zanak secretly loved the king’s wife, and allowing the king to complete the process of accessing the Odena in full will lead to the king killing the Queen, her wife (who was pregnant with their twin children) and Keeper of the Odena.

The Muur Council had banned the ritual after it was ascertained that the process is too complicated, dangerous and the level of energy it bestows cannot be guaranteed not to create chaos and destruction.

Since Muurians were not allowed to perform the mystic magic anymore, the Queen’s children (whom she bore with the banished and exiled king) performed the act on someone from Duria (earth). The successful completion of the ritual was however short lived because the Durian the process was performed on unintentionally destroyed a neighborhood in Owerri after he lost control of himself in a fight. The energy release from the destruction alerted the Intergalactic Muurian Agency called Amarandubi who arrived Nigeria to investigate the cause.

However, the Amarandubi wasn’t the only ones who got whiff of the incident. After escaping from Ramod (with a blood poisoning chip in his bloodstream) where he mistakenly got teleported to, the exiled king landed in a place called Kontagora in Northern Nigeria. He made the place home together with his friend Varodi, and co-opted some big shot miners who mined niobium and columbite in the region.

Using his superior ultra-advanced technological designs and equipment, he took a huge percentage from the mined minerals to support his secret works. Everything changed though when his estranged children brought the Amarandubi to Nigeria after they successfully performed the forbidden process on a Durian.

The Amarandubi discovered Bonadi’s trails while trailing the Durian’s energy signature, and everything went south from that moment. Bonadi also managed to  survive one of the best coordinated attacks in the Agency’s history when the Justice Protocol was declared and top JP operatives were deployed to enforce it.

Please Note: I have captured the major plot points of the story in the synopsis below which explains the full events further.

He also made an alliance with an enemy of the Muurians, an alliance that will end up almost causing the destruction of an entire race.

Things took a different turn when his children with the Queen successfully completed a powerful forbidden magic from the Muuragi on one of the inhabitants of Duria(earth). Unknown to the children, the father has been secretly attempting same dark ritual for years, but all proved unsuccessful ( Bonadi is one of the best scientist’s in Muurian history).

Things took a dark turn when he got knowledge of this information after escaping from a place called Ramod where his last experiment unintentionally took him to.

His machinations with his old friend and a former spy operative, helped him trace the Durian whom the dark forbidden magic was performed on. Their plan to capture, contain and control the Durian (who doesn’t really know the full extent of what was done to him) was met with stiff opposition from the Amarandubi, the top spy agency of the Muurs. The agency had gotten knowledge of the said ritual after the Durian unknowingly destroyed a big neighborhood in a town called Owerri, thereby releasing a traceable energy signature.

Whilst the Amarandubi canvassed through the country and accross planets looking for the Durian, a disgruntled nation (Nolnad) who felt cheated out of a powerful source of energy deal, unleashed an assault on the capital city of the Muurians called Marrialu. The main target was to obtain one of the powerful energy Orbs from the Elder Chambers for themselves. Since they couldn’t attack the Muurs through any conventional means, they utilised an invitation from the Queen to watch a famous Daring Game held cyclically in the empire’s capital.

The Nolnadian’s almost succeeded in getting one of the Unerg Orbs on when they unleashed mayhem in the capital city of the empire, Marrialu. The Nolnadian King’s plan succeeded but was thwarted by Bonadi who succeeded in capturing the Durian. He had used his influence to gain access to the capital city because of the Games only to see that the capital city is under siege.

Knowing exactly what was going on, having gotten prior knowledge of the assault from being captured by the Nolnadian king himself, he headed straight for the Odena which housed the Unerg and which is what the Nolnadians were really fighting for.

After defeating the Nolnadian king in a fierce battle at the Elder Chamber of the Odena, he escaped with the encased translucent energy orb (Unerg) while the Nolnadian king was arrested by an angry Muurian Security Force called “Muur Guardian” who encircled the place.

With two of the most powerful energy sources in the universe in his hands (the Durian and the energy Orb called Unerg), Bonadi
set out to explore and further his experiments. But, not before he lured the Muurians into an intergalactic battle with Ramod, the unknown Intergalactic empire hidden by a cosmic veil.
