Overview

The son of a CIA attorney inadvertently discovers that his father is working with aliens from another planet on a top secret project. When the aliens and CIA discover this serious security breach they insist on Peter Turner's exile to Tarizon.
Meanwhile Tarizon is recovering from a series of super volcanic eruptions that has nearly destroyed all life on the planet. Tarizon is slowly recovering ecologically but the political situation is volatile. The Purist Party, which condones slavery and promises to rid Tarizon of its growing mutant population, has just elected its leader, Videl Lai, Chancellor in a tainted election. Once in power, Chancellor Lai renounces Tarizon's constitution, The Supreme Mandate.

In response to this the Loyalist party is planning a civil war to restore rule under the Supreme Mandate, which guaranteed life, liberty and equality for all life forms on Tarizon. The Loyalist Party, however, is weak and there is little hope it will be able to defeat Videl Lai and his formidable army.

The only hope seems to be a prophecy that foretells of the arrival of a Liberator from Earth who would lead a revolt to rid Tarizon of a ruthless dictator. When the Loyalist learn of Peter's arrival from Earth, some believe he is the one promised in the Prophecy, but many are skeptical. All agree, however, that the appearance of the long anticipated Liberator, at this critical time, would greatly enhance their chances of victory over Videl Lai and the Purists.

When Videl Lai learns of Peter's imminent arrival and the possibility that he might be the Liberator, he vows to have him killed the moment he sets foot on Tarizon.

    Peter Turner has been abducted to Tarizon and declared the Liber

    Peter Turner has been abducted to Tarizon and declared the Liberator. It's a lot to take in for a 17 year old in a short period of time, especially if civil war really does break out as foretold.

    Once I got past the how, why (as Peter also has to do), and who (same family of characters from the attorney mysteries which threw me at first), he was abducted, and just let myself into the story, this reality and environment really took hold.

    Vivid and lush descriptions allow this new world to take shape in the imagination.

    The narrative flows well and is fairly action packed with some underlying mysteries.

    Diverse and realistic characters fill the pages with their actions and authentic dialogue. Even while told primarily through Peter's point of view, it is possible to watch as multiple characters grow and learn about each other and their environment/reality.

    Not all issues are resolved at the end of this book, but that is to be expected as this is part of a saga.

    Overall, a thrilling read!

    Alien abduction, mutants,CIA plot, good science fiction

    The young adult science fiction audience will go for William Manchee¿s Tarizon: The Liberator, is the first book in his new trilogy. <BR/>This book has everything a sci-fi fan could want: an alien world, mutants, conflict and civil war, spaceships, super-technology and chapters full of action! There is even romance for young Peter.<BR/><BR/>The reader is pulled into the story, learning along with Peter the language, customs, food, technology and warfare practices of this alien culture. The vivid descriptions of the planet will feel as if readers are there assisting the earthling as he struggles with doing what he believes is morally right. There is a message here, which is oft repeated, a message of tolerance and hope.<BR/>Storyline is attention-grabbing, engaging and out of the ordinary. Settings are nicely detailed, reader is drawn into the action, and interest is compelling from beginning to end. Plot twists, subterfuge, stratagem, and chicanery abound, heroes are heroic, and villains are down-right vicious.¿

    An exhilarating powerful morality tale

    On the planet Tarizon, several volcanoes erupted simultaneously placing the world in darkness and affecting the ability to survive and even grow crops. Everything is aimed at survival so the people of Tarizon make a deal with the authorities in the United States. The will give America tech in exchange for mating with humans and producing healthy offspring. When teenage earthling Peter Turner discovers there are aliens amongst us, they kidnap him and send him to Tarizon to silence him. Many believe he is the prophesized Liberator who will appear from outside during a super eclipse, which occurs as he arrives.----------- Peter learns his new home, still devastated by e nature, is on the brink of a civil war that neither side can truly win. The Chancellor is incapacitated and Videl of the Purist Party takes his place. He and his followers oppose the Supreme Mandate that grants freedom and equality to sentient non-humans including mutants, the rhutz, the Nanomites and the Seafolken. Peter sides with Vidal¿s opponents the Loyalists who vow to uphold the Supreme Mandate to live free or die. Still he is caught in a civil war between the Purists and the Loyalists as there is no room for compromise only death.----------- TARIZON: THE LIBERATOR targets the young adult science fiction audience, but older readers will enjoy the action-packed exciting thriller with a deep message of at least tolerance for all while preferable consensus. The vivid descriptions of the planet will feel as if fans are there assisting the earthling as he struggles with doing what he believes is morally right and taking part in the action and battles. William Manchee has created a fascinating world in trouble that anchors this exhilarating powerful morality tale.----------- Harriet Klausner
