Overview

Science fantasy describes this world created by magical technology where men are gods; mutant races abound in a tale of sabotage, prophesy, love and loss.

A millennia past, on a world where magic and technology interact, a sabotaged terra-forming project unleashed forces upon Ryung, which destroyed the planet's surface. It's happening again.

Jabari, whose body served as Ryung's magical conduit for a thousand years, is dying. He and his machine counterpart reside on one of the moons. As he fails, so does his control over Ryung's innate magic.

In this tale where men have become gods and the children of Ryung know little truth about their world's creation, two stories unfold. Ryung's past where a ruined terraform project brought unexpected results. Mutant races arose. The project scientists thought they found immortality. The scientists/gods create a prophecy to bring about a replacement for Jabari, hoping to restore Ryung before things go too far.

But a past traitor has other plans.

Elingor, child of power, is slated for Jabari's destiny. Tulaan, a mutiger priest carrying the prophetic message, accompanies him; a beautiful buccaneer named Katja and a muavian they call Rocky. Together they discover the truth and make their way to the moon. One of them becomes the traitor's pawn, another will die and the last will replace Jabari...if they arrive in time.

    Intriguing Read

    The Death of Jabari surprised me with its intriguing and satisfying blend of fantasy and science fiction woven within the story plot. Within its pages two vastly different worlds engage in a fragile dance, each dependent upon the other for its survival. One is a world where magic flowing through the air is commonplace and faith in the gods is unchallenged. The other, a place where ordinary men and women of science have now become their gods. Into the realities of these two worlds Ms. Bundy asks and skillfully answers the question, 'What do you do when a `god¿ is dying?' I thoroughly enjoyed reading The Death of Jabari. Kim Bundy seamlessly merged two of my favorite genres to produce a story that kept me interested until the end. Highly recommended for a rainy afternoon.
