The Calling (for those of you just joining the show...) is a science fiction novel written for 8 to 12 year-olds. It will be the first in a series called Beyond The Elder Stars. You can click the link to the right to find out more... but here's a quick snapshot of the story:
The man who saved Valin Derojan's life has been kidnapped by callous raiders from space. To regain his lost honour, Valin must attempt a hopeless rescue.
Merratol, his headstrong younger cousin, is seeking to avenge the murder of her father, and stows away. So he must protect her too! But wait a moment, now who's saving whom?
In the process of the rescue, they are enlisted by an elusive band of freedom fighters and catapulted towards a galaxy-wide war. They are trained to use powerful rings controlled by their own minds. But that means Valin and Merratol must get their raging thoughts and emotions under control. Are they up to the challenge?
