An astronaut in exile, Saul Blackwell has discovered the key to eternal life—a salve—while living amongst a primitive people who worship him as a god. In order to refine this life-extending substance and purge it of its negative side-effects, Saul requires the high-tech lab facilities of the New Athens base—the very place from which he is in exile.
First, however, Saul must lead his followers, the Kishna, in a desperate battle against a deadly enemy and hope against hope that he survives. Meanwhile expedition leader Kenji Yashioto must deal with a personal loss, a plague of equipment failures, and a pregnant wife. When a new menace arises to threaten all mankind, Kenji and his crew may be called upon to make the ultimate sacrifice. The Children of Sol Book Three: Golgotha, is the final installment of the Children of Sol trilogy.
After enduring the tribulations of the journey to the Alpha-Centauri star system, Astronaut Saul Blackwell must reluctantly flee the sanctuary of New Athens base.
As he wanders alone through the hostile forests of the planet Pholus, he encounters a primitive tribe of native people who face extinction at the hands of a vastly more powerful enemy.
Witnessing Saul’s physical as well as technological superiority, the cave dwellers believe this “Child of Sol” to be their salvation.
Now Saul Blackwell must decide if he will aid these docile creatures in their desperate struggle for survival or take advantage of their blind innocence and set himself to be worshipped as their Human God.
The Human God is the second book of the Children of Sol series.
