Radomir Lascek, Captain of World Peace! While Captain Lascek implements his grand Master Plan to bring the warring parties together into a coalition and negotiate a new world constitution, someone has to captain his Solar Wind and his motley and damaged crew of survivors to one of the safe bases - Prime Oil. This task falls to Lascek's daughter Rushka, trained and groomed for years in captaining. With her crew of teenagers however the enigmatic young woman has a problem. It is Federi who has to ensure they show her the due respect, and Federi who has to pick up after everyone, finishing every job and keeping it all running - under fire from a hot-headed Ronan who considers himself as temporary First Mate as the gypsy's superior.
But all these petty problems fade when the Solar Wind comes across real disaster - Prime Oil has been attacked and is sinking.
Amidst attacks from an unknown enemy force, sudden extreme terrorism hitting the world capitals, and something decidedly strange lurking deep under the surface of the sea circling them, Federi dances a fandango to keep things from going too far wrong. In the middle of this, young Paean slips out under his control and signs on as Captain's Freedom Fighter. She is out-Tziganing him, outslinking the fox. Federi's fight against his own ego begins... just in time a beautiful villainess in a tasteless leopard-print cat-suit appears on the scene to give the entire leadership of the Solar Wind a run for their money.
About the Author
Writer and musician, Pretoria (South Africa). I'm running a violin studio in Pretoria, raising 3 incredible young people and writing. Oh yes, and running a small publisher on the side, that sort-of takes care of the free time ;-) Pretoria is a very beautiful place. If you stand on a "koppie", a hill (we don't have mountains), you overlook a rolling landscape of what looks like forest. I understand Pretoria is one of the most treed cities in the world. Still as much as I love trees, I love the sea more. The Solar Winds were inspired directly by the sea itself - watching the dolphins and the rainbows in the waves at 4pm when the sea becomes so incredibly dark blue. Yes we are indeed privileged - we humans from Planet Earth!
