Overview

The planet Ellerkan is a very confusing place for Susan and her two children, Michael and Jennifer. One moment they are driving back from McDonalds, and the next moment they are in a forest being shot at with laser rifles while being chased by Knights in armour. Susan is rescued by Cameron and Soo-Kai, but despite their help her two children are lost. Jennifer, like Cameron's daughter, is captured by soldiers of the Dragon Prince and taken to the Dragon's Lair Castle. Michael escapes when he runs into Chen-Soo. A friendship quickly forms that will have an important effect on all their lives. At the house of Rolf L'Epine, Susan learns the history of Ellerkan, a history of war and conquest between the Navak and the Androktones, or 'killers of men.' It is a war that once spanned the galaxy, but ended here on Ellerkan. The Androktones and the descendants of the Navak still exist side by side, keeping apart, but killing one another whenever they meet. But that is all ancient history. Today Ellerkan is rent by a bloody civil war, and events soon overtake Susan and her children as feuding Princes, ancient wars and forgotten technology all add confusion and death. Who are the troopers that sneak about the forest? What is it they want, and why did they sabotage a colony ship and then abandon it and it's passengers and crew? Why is it that Rolf fears his own daughter, Chen-Soo? Will Kai-Tai lead the surviving Androktones against them? And what motivates Vin-Ra, the Androktone that now lives in the castle? And why have all the children been taken there? Only one fact is clear. The only way to escape from Ellerkan is through the portal in the Althon Gerail, one of the last of the Twelve Great Ships. But the wreck of the Althon Gerail lies buried beneath the Dragon's Lair Castle, and to rescue their children and reach it, Susan and Cameron must face the Androktones, the troopers, the army of the Dragon Prince, and the horrors that dwell within the ship itself.

Meet the Author

I was born in Manchester in the North West of England in 1957. Although I have moved around a bit, Manchester is still both my physical and spiritual home. I am a Northerner. I am also married to Rosanna, and have been now for twenty-one years. I have an imagination that began when I was very young and never waned. I also like reading and so it was no surprise I suppose when I started writing. Because I am an unknown who has never been picked up by either an Agent or mainstream Publisher, I am a bit of a one man band. I even do my own covers and have become a bit of a digital artist as a result. I started writing when I was young and very bad. Now I am older and a lot better. My writing has improved too. I write science fiction, fantasy and romance stories. I also like to mix and match with romance in science fiction and so on. Female characters feature very prominently in my stories, many of them in strong and attractive leading roles. The reason for this is that I like women, a lot. In fact I adore everything about them, so it is no surprise that I enjoy reading stories where women feature prominently and that I should also enjoy writing stories where women feature prominently. It gives my stories a female bias, but I think they are better for it. I also like every character, even the monsters and villains, to have a realistic reason for being and doing what they do. Like reality, everything blurs. There is no right or wrong, just different viewpoints that lead to conflict. But I also like my out and out villains to be really bad. If you like science fiction, thrillers and romance stories with particular emphasis on leading female characters that are exciting and adventurous, look no further.
