  • "Masterful blend of reality with cutting edge science fiction . . . a spell-binding page turner." - Lee Ashford: Top 1% GoodReads Reviewer

The Mountain Place of Knowledge is a tense, driving action thriller. Marshall Chamberlain gives us a raging adventure into plausible reality.

  • A Place Of Knowledge Inside A Belizean Mountain
  • A Sentinel Guards The Entrance
  • A Scepter Instrument That Heals And Destroys
  • A Jeweled Ball Of Blue Death
  • A Race To Preserve Ancient Technology

The burial chamber of a revered Mayan sorceress is uncovered atop a sacrificial pyramid at the Caracol ruins in western Belize. Translation of ancient metallic scrolls and a 1100-year-old codex found in the chamber reveal the existence of a secret entrance to the inside of a mountain. The scrolls refer to the interior as Trinium, the Place of Knowledge, and explain its creation by an advanced civilization.

A flash of mysterious blue light brings death to a U.N. official, and investigators are sent to Belize to discover the source and locate the secret mountain entrance. What they discover inside is bizarre and unimaginable; mental prodding guides them to the Place of Seeing for the most shocking experience of their lives.

Leaks of the discoveries cause one nation to determine the mountain poses a threat to world order, and it will take great risks to neutralize the danger. Discover ancient technology--the modern-day "Jules Verne" effect.

Action, intrigue, and riveting adventure, The Mountain Place of Knowledge is page-turning excitement that runs like a raging river until the very last page.
