We Are the Destroyers tells the story of Captain Bel'Lar, who recognizes that overconsumption is destroying his own planet and synthetic foods are turning his people into mutants under control of the Brotherhood of Syn. He's one of the few to recognize this only because he's also one of the few remaining Organs (those who still live the organic lifestyle) and so he's the one who arranges for an escape from his dying planet to the amazing blue-white planet. For many, this saga would have been enough drama - but the pleasure in We Are the Destroyers lies in the fact that this is just the beginning.  Bel'lar discovers (through visions) that in fact he has not only lived again, but repeated the same patterns of being the one charged with saving his people from their greed. Does past predict future? Are patterns inevitably repeated, and is Bel'lar doomed to make the same mistakes over and over again? Is his vision of environmental and spiritual destruction accurate? The combination of spiritual and ecological reflection, combined with drama and a mission to save mankind, contributes to a powerful story that is first in a projected 'We Are…Are We' series of science fiction stories examining visions, fate, and responsibility. Reader affinity for a certain degree of new age sentiment and reflection is recommended for a better appreciation of Lindler's approach, which is more ethically based than most fantasies.

Reviewed by Karen Pirnot for Readers' Favorite We Are The Destroyers by D.K. Lindler is a page-turning novel about the consequences of over-consumption and ignorance of environmental concerns. The story opens with Captain Bel'lar preparing to leave a planet which is in chaos due to total mismanagement of the earth's resources. He is charged with attempting to find a suitable planet on which to transplant the Organs (people who have chosen to live an organic life). Most of the population lives on synthetic foods and has no comprehension of healthy living. But once Bel'lar and his beautiful companion, Ry Sing, are under way to the white and blue planet of promise, Bel'lar learns he has lived a past life in which he actually destroyed a planet. Unable to accept his past, Bel'lar chooses to live in the present, ignoring his potential power. Lindler has developed strong characters in We Are The Destroyers. Readers get an immediate understanding that the characters and the plot will be an easy transition to the sequel. It will be interesting to see whether humankind has learned from previous mistakes or whether we are bound to repeat the past. I particularly liked the wisdom of the old sages, with a bit of a twist at the end. Ry Sing bounces between being a mystical seer and a practical advisor. I'd like to see Bel'lar's character developed to a more intense level, but he is currently a strong character as he struggles to accept his own unique traits as they relate to his power in the human race. Like all science fiction, the reader cannot help but wonder if there's not a grain of truth in the underlying philosophy.
