The Panca Brotherhood

Humanity is in danger and the Panca intend to save it by reforming the five-link chain or pancatvique by connecting the âmnas. In each book we get toknow the "brother-" or "sister-link" amplified by the âmnas of thepreceding links, and we follow their adventures through countries thatcan be either backward or technologically advanced, at war or at peace,hostile or friendly. The fifth brother at the end of the chain,benefiting from the energy of the other links, will confront the dangercoming from another world. But what criteria does the Brotherhood useto unite the links in a chain? Has it unravelled the mysteries of timeand space?
