SUITABLE FOR AGES 18 AND ABOVE: “Be careful what you wish for,” a saying so appropriate for the Sarast family. They are the only humans on the verdant, primitive and dangerous planet of Cerulea. The third generation has just arrived, turning the once brave adventurer to harried grandma, while Mother Nature rages, children bicker, memories ache and the first signs of wrinkles appear. And then there’s the Sphere - robot or living being? Benign observer, helpful neighbor or silent conspirator?
SUITABLE FOR ALL AGES: She wondered how it could possibly be that something mortal and imperfect could come from the residence of the Gods - the space between the stars. Was it a message? A warning? Retribution for some unstated sin? Or, most shockingly something not mentioned anywhere in the Seven Books? She would not know the true nature of this lone visitor, apparently on a strange one-way quest, until it arrived; an event that proved to generate dangerous disruption for her species as well as for her, after the stranger's nearly fatal landing.
SUITABLE FOR AGES 18 AND ABOVE: This lonely voyage was to be her grand and unique adventure of discovery, perhaps the greatest single step toward understanding the possibilities of life ever taken by human beings. Yet betrayal and human error combined forced her to make a bitter choice between the pain, risk and loss,which would come with survival on the one hand and the relief and certainty of death on the other.
SUITABLE FOR AGES 18 AND ABOVE: It seemed like swimming in a calm, cool lake on a lovely summer afternoon. Oblivious, I hardly noticed them disappear, one at a time, here and there for no common reason I could see until suddenly; the benign water roiled, turned to fire and the evil vision rose in full view, its purpose plain, its plan revealed. The survival of many became my mission.
SUITABLE FOR ALL AGES: A children’s’ adventure novel, yes, but this book is also a puzzle for active, growing minds. 14 drawings in cartouche-like frames written in the pictograph language of the inhabitants visited by 12-year-olds Lisa and Charlie invite your speculations before they are explained in the text. This story explores that delicate age where childhood gives way to adolescence for two lovable misfits within the context of a dangerous adventure.
SUITABLE FOR AGES 18 AND ABOVE: No matter what the feeling - no matter pain, joy or blind indifference, the tangle within will come undone and truth will be revealed as each story delves into a heart's comic and/or tragic labyrinth.
