Overview

DON'T MISS THIS ONE!
Rogue Program is an outgrowth of my popular novel, Savage Survival, which is combined with the sequel to make one giant book, essentially two books for the price of one! Almost from the time Savage Survival was published, fans and readers wrote asking, "What happened next?" This novel not only answers the question but includes a greatly expanded and revised version of the original novel, which then segues directly into the sequel of that book. The two together make up Rogue Program. This is the longest work I've attempted and I've worked hard to make it an interesting and highly satisfying read. Lyda Brightner is a female protagonist anyone can identify with as she grows up with millions of other human captives of an unknown alien species. Conditions are so harsh and change so often that death is a constant companion, winnowing the Survivors inexorably down to only a few thousand out of fifteen million before they are returned to Earth. And then comes the hard part: trying to divine the motives of the aliens who have never been seen. Only their mechanical avatars have been intermittently present during five long years of terrible struggles to live, with each change bringing ever-harsher conditions. What do the aliens want? Why did they push millions of captive humans into environments where survival or death were the only options? What do they intend to do next now that the Survivors are back? Read about Lyda Brightner and how she manages to stay alive by her quick wits, her innate bravery, her compassion for those weaker than herself and a determination never to give in to the tortures of captivity that leave so many older and physically stronger than herself by the wayside. Rogue Program is a coming-of-age novel like no other, and Lyda is a character you'll remember for a long, long time. Follow her life from a privileged 'tween into an unimagined hell where she must constantly fight for her life, and on to an Enclave on the moon left by the aliens, where the biggest puzzle of the galaxy waits to be solved by the few Survivors of alien captivity. Failure to find the answer of this last test may mean oblivion not only for Lyda, her lover, and her fellow survivors, but for the whole human race! Don't miss Rogue Program!

    Rouge Program is an exciting page-turner in two distinct parts,

    Rouge Program is an exciting page-turner in two distinct parts, and the content determines the style of presentation.
    The first part is a very intense personal journey by Lyda Brightner, barely a teenager at the start of the story. Along with 15 million people, she is swept up by alien-controlled machines and taken to one terrible environment after another. Each has great challenges, and many die. Eventually only 5000 are left. Why was this done by the aliens with all their cruelties? You’ll need to read the book to find out.
    The second part is geopolitics, in which the 5000 survivors are pitted against all the dictators, power-mongers and large-scale criminal organizations of Earth -- and against all the inertia, bureaucracy and stupidity we humans are so good at.
    Darrell’s heroine Lyda very quickly becomes a real person. His demonstration of how some exceptional people can develop leadership is both convincing and realistic. Darrell is very good at getting his reader to feel the emotion, to identify with it.
    I cheered Lyda all the way through the book. Put on your seat belt, and be prepared for a wild ride!
