If you're a fan of Lord of the Rings, Avatar, Star Wars and Robin Hood etc then you'll love Tales of Roumanhi, Homequest: Liberation with over 400 exciting pages of adventure as opposing sides struggle for freedom and supremacy.
T'skya is young, inexperienced and expendable when she is sent to Roumanhi from the Homequest, a vast spaceship that is coming to the end of its functional life; her duty to secure a new home for her people. Heading for a city, she crashes in the desert, only to wake up in an ancient forest on the wrong side of the mountains with a spear in her flesh, surrounded by hostile Roumanhi forest dwellers who think she is an enemy.
She soon learns that the dwellers from Wilderwood enclave have good reason to hate and fear the race now dominating their lives. Their families have been split up, their people brutalised and enslaved, their treasured land ravaged and plundered and their monarchy slaughtered. The natives with spears and arrows are no match for the more advanced enemy with their blasters and laser cannon.
Eventually T'skya formulates a dangerous plan to secure Roumanhi freedom, endangering those closest to her and leading to revelations that change all their lives.
Liberation is a tale of heroic sacrifice, of tragic loss and passionate desire, of ancient races and peculiar creatures, of treasured mythology and warfare. It is the story of a group of diverse people, both friend and foe, who share a goal - Liberation.
1st review: 26 July 2010 'The descriptions of the lands and characters bring the story alive, with interesting twists and turns, leaving me impatient for the next book in the series. Well worth the read and an excellent 'first' for the author.' Rosemary W.
