I did not learn until the very end of reading this book that it is the second trip
Ms. Margaret Fieland takes her readers on into the alien world of Aleyne. Does that mean the reader needs to first read book one
RELOCATED to get up-to-speed before grasping what it is happening, or GOING to happen in this book
Ms. Fieland does a fantastic job of rapidly recapping for the first time adventurers. At no time did I feel lost. At no time did I have to wonder...what is going on? What I DID feel is the same level of frustration I feel today with the ongoing proof of political corruption confronting us almost daily with the news reports pouring out of Washington and downtown Podunk. Political manipulation at its finest, which translates at its most corrupt is alive and well in the distant future and has a stranglehold that we, the readers of today can understand all too well.
However, this is NOT a story limited by the intrigue of the underhanded greed and power plays that form the chessboard upon which the foundation of the story is built. It is, actually, a journey through the many levels of love, trust, fear, and core beliefs shaped by societal norms.
Ms. Fieland weaves her story well, bringing Science FUTURE, to Earth-NOW. Every level is carefully presented the reader understands, accepts, and almost wishes we too were a part of the cohesive units being forged in her future, Aleyne.
Science-Fiction? Yes...but more...so much more...and well deserving of the
FIVE BRIGHT STARS I give it.
I can't wait for the next book in this powerful journey.
