Pearlman by David Russell 💕 Spotlight & EXCLUSIVE eBook Giveaway 💕(Sci-Fi Romance)



A contemporary hero travels through time and space to the legendary times in La Araucana. He meets a woman who turns out to be Auchimalgen, the Araucanian Moon Goddess. She seduces and enlightens him.

This story combines romance with sci-fi and time travel.

***Inspired by a passage in the Spanish epic poem La Araucana, which I have translated.***

About La Araucana

On scraps of paper in the lulls of fighting, [Alonso de] Ercilla jotted down versified octaves about the events of the war and his own part in it. These stanzas he later gathered together and augmented in number to form his epic. In the minds of the Chilean people La Araucana is a kind of Iliad that exalts the heroism, pride, and contempt of pain and death of the legendary Araucanian leaders and makes them national heroes today. Thus we see Ercilla appealing to the concept of the "noble savage," which has its origins in classical authors and took on a new lease of life in the renaissance - c.f. Montaigne's essay "Des Canibales", and was destined to have wide literary currency in European literature two centuries later. He had, in fact, created a historical poem of the war in Chile which immediately inspired many imitations.
