Description
PURAMORE is a science fiction novel that presents a utopian view of the future for mankind. The plot setting takes place between the latter part of the 20th century and the middle part of the 21st. The novel posits the offing a new religion, one devoted to a utopian cyberspace religious paradigm rooted in ancient gnosticism.

The main character is a knighted British Army general who is assigned by beings from another universe to bring about apotheosis for mankind after defeating its mortal and immortal enemy.
***
Mankind has only two choices after science and technology renders the species utterly obsolete and incapable of survival in the future.

One choice compels humanity to submit body and soul to a sinister supernatural civilisation, whilst the other impels mankind to submit to a utopian bioengineering paradigm. The first choice results in extinction of the singularity of the human soul, whilst the second choice leaves it infinitely free and self-determined.

British Army Captain George Smythe spills his blood for The Cause before he has a conscious idea as to either its true nature or his role as its leader in the distant future. His mortal and immortal enemy nearly slays him while he’s on holiday in Mexico touring pre-Columbian archeological sites. If not for his rescue from death by a Nagual shaman, who then realized his potential to wield Puramore for the thirteenth and last time, his future role in delivering mankind from the onslaught of a nemesis from another universe would have been effectively terminated.

As a middle-class London teenager, he dreams one night of twelve titans from a parallel universe who lead him on a futuristic tour of Earth and Mars. They transform him into a perfect human being and galvanize his spirit to The Cause during the process. Just before the dream ends they tell him they will assist him if he brings about their existence in his era. He later dismisses the portent of the dream until his fateful encounter with death and his Nagual warrior spirit guide, Juan Aguila.

Juan protects and guides Smythe’s life and warrior spirit from the moment they meet, mostly from afar until the end of his distinguished military career. Though, as charged by a group of beings from another universe with he encountered during the end of the last ice age, he never divulges to him his role as the guardian of Puramore. Juan’s other role since becoming its custodian had been to release the Divine Blade at crucial times in mankind’s history only to humans eminently worthy of wielding it to combat forces inimical to the survival of species, both physically and spiritually.

General Sir George Smythe, Team Alpha, who're reincarnated beings from another universe, Juan and quantum computer battle Wingtip, who’s the avatar of China's first emperor, and spirit forces at his command to turn the tide of mankind's survival dilemma decidedly in their favour. In order to prevail against their mortal and immortal foe, they must marshal all the intellectual resources at their disposal to overcome Wingtip's spiritual advantage. Time is of the essence since their foe is on the brink of delivering the final coup d'état to mankind.

Only a paragon of virtue can wield The Divine Blade in defence against mankind's mortal and immortal enemy and to lead the species to apotheosis.

Failure is not an option for George Smythe, nor for mankind, whether or not he proves himself worthy to wield Puramore.

Your book is reminiscent of the literary Goliaths of the last century, heavy on flowing prose intricately descriptive and intellectual expositions covering abstract, socially relevant ideas. --authonomy.com

This is a well written peice of sci-fi. Its well organised and descriptive enough to allow a good flow to the story without bogging it down. Fair play to ya. --authonomy.com
