Sarah’s Landing –II – The Telepaths of Theon  – Synopsis  

Torn by the plight of the people of the planet Theon and his love for one of their daughters, the man from Earth, Joshua has returned to his own planet to re-evaluate his dedication to his first love. As the novel of the second episode opens it is slightly before the time of the birth of his Earth son. After Joshua reluctantly decides to return to Theon, the guilt of leaving Alexandra, his first love, and Andrew his son to be, dulls his senses as he traverses the void between Earth and Theon. His thoughts thus consumed he is unaware of the pull towards the dark planet Crlllion until suddenly an internal alarm alerts him. Trying desperately to gain control, he wonders if the barbarians are actually the cause of the diversion in his transport destination. Joshua’s plight is detected on Theon by the Ruler, Heron, in time to avoid disaster by correcting his trajectory, and bringing him safely through the void. As the weeks and months pass, Joshua and his Theonian wife, the Ruler’s daughter, settle into a normal routine while awaiting the birth of their son Adam. Meanwhile the birth of his Earth-bound son, Andrew, proceeded in near unison with his half-brother.

               Joshua’s decision to return to Theon leaves his first love feeling hopelessly abandoned which drives her into the arms of his best friend.  Although reluctant at first, the feeling of total loss compromises Alexandra’s innermost desires for the sake of her son, Andrew.  Before her marriage can be consummated Alexandra’s husband-to-be “dies” in a mysterious car crash. His body is never recovered, which drives her to the brink of insanity.  She doesn’t realize these events are being orchestrated by the Ruler of Theon and his henchman on Earth.

Theon’s Council and its Ruler, Heron, worry that Joshua’s loyalty to his first love on Earth cannot be completely broken. Believing it to be the only way to keep him on Theon, they plot to destroy all his Earthly ties, which mean the destruction of Alexandra and his first-born son, Andrew. Detecting their plan, Joshua, with extra-ordinary powers gained from discovering their Ancient culture, imprisons Theon’s Council within the depths of the planet where signs of their ill health, manifests itself.

While Joshua’s attention is diverted on Theon, he is unaware that on Earth, his young son, Andrew, desperately wishes to spend this third birthday with his alien brother. Andrew plans to wait until all are asleep before teleporting to Theon to be with Adam. He does not realize the danger he places himself in, or the heartache he causes everyone, both on Earth and on Theon.

               Joshua’s search for Andrew brings him to an offbeat planet where he discovers the answer to a long sought secret. He knows, once he sees to Andrew’s safety, he will have to return to the rescue site in order to ensure no evidence remains that might lead the Theonian nemesis, the barbarians of the dark planet Crlllion, to them.

               With the death of Heron, Theon’s Ruler and Adrianne’s father, the role of Leader is thrust upon Joshua and any thoughts of life on Earth forces a decision he would rather not make. After all, each of the two women is desirable and they are the Mothers of his children. Reluctantly, final decisions must be made for the survival of an entire race, the safety of his two sons, and the home he yearns for where the happiness of his first love still remains.

Review by: Angela Verdenius author of:    
“Soul of the Forgotten” Wings Press Author, Australia

     The Theonians, a civilization far advanced, and with fantastic psychic abilities, are on the brink of disaster.  The need to find another universe with a compatible life form is urgent.

     That life form is found on Earth.  The Theonians easily integrate amongst the people of Sarah’s Landing, New England, unbeknownst to the inhabitants.
Joshua Morgan is a special investigator of the Alien Intelligence Team of the Space Intelligence Command (SICOM).  In love with telepath Alexandria, he mysteriously vanishes leaving her alone and pregnant.

     On Theon, he is chosen as the next leader of the Theons, and joins with Adrianne, the daughter of the leader, Heron.  He also fathers a baby with her, and telepathically, all five are linked ? Alexandria, Adrianne, Joshua and the babies, sons Andrew and Adam.

Joshua’s friend, Lt Harry Jacobsen, loves Alexandria, and hopes to marry her.  At first disbelieving, he eventually comes to realize that she speaks the truth about another species.  This results in his disappearance and ‘believed death’.

     The problems are building at a tremendous rate, for now not only is Joshua caught in a quadrangle with the two women and the two sons he loves, but the possible ‘neutralizing’ of Alexandria and her son Andrew by certain Theon Council members is a very real threat.  Internal conflict breaks out between the Earth men who live on Theon and the Theon council themselves.  Andrew disappears when trying to teleport to Theon. And to top it all off, a growing threat in the form of a cannibalistic race called the Crlllions is looming.

     A story of epic proportions, book 2 of Sarah’s Landing is a whirlwind of happenings and possibilities, and heart-wrenching emotion, as a group of people are caught up in a future of what remains to be seen…horror, love, or despair?  What are the secrets that link Sarah’s Landing to the Theonians?

Elena Bowman is a mistress of her craft!  A recommended read for any lover of the sci-fi genre.

Sarah’s Landing Contact by Elena Dorothy Bowman

Sarah’s Landing – 1 — Contact — Synopsis*

A 111-year-old mystery — people who vanished ten years before the new millennium — the first space-exploration star-ship, Earth Star-I, lost in deep space fifty-one years later — Is there a connection between these unexplained disappearances, and a village situated along the rocky coast of New England, a place out of time, called Sarah’s Landing?

Joshua Morgan, the Astronaut/Biologist scratched from the ill-fated space flight, had the determination to seek out the answers. Working out of the Space Intelligence Command in Houston, Texas, his investigation leads him to long-forgotten secret government archives in Washington, DC, and to a little-known underground chamber in the old uranium storage caverns along the Colorado River in Utah. Slowly, almost magnetically, he is drawn to Sarah’s Landing. Stories told by the local townspeople of the Founders’ House, and of the strange going’s-on within, draw him to the site over the objections of a redheaded telepath, Alexandra McKay, who interests him greatly. Little does he realize his quest will take him to the far reaches of space and to an alien planet no one knew exists.

The story takes place in the year 2055 and weaves around Sarah’s Landing, one of the last vestiges of an earlier era. Unknown to most of its inhabitants, it maintains an unusual bond with an alien city, in an undiscovered galaxy thousands of light years away, on a planet where a race of aliens possess telepathic, telekinetic, psychic abilities more powerful and far-reaching than anyone could have imagined.

In his search for answers Joshua falls deeply in love with Alexandra, who senses danger in his life. Soon after his disappearance, the first inkling of an alien bond manifests itself in her dreams. Trying desperately to find him, Alexandra enlists the aid of Joshua’s friend, Lt. Henry (Harry) Jacobsen, a Navy Lieutenant who is quickly smitten by her.

A quadrangle develops when the main characters, Joshua, Alexandra, Harry, and the alien leader’s daughter, Adrianne, are helplessly caught in the entanglement of an affair that spans two different planets light years apart. Joshua discovers that his love for the two women, results in the birth of two sons— siblings — one from the alien planet Theon, and one from Earth, empowered with mind-linking capabilities. This phenomenon results in detection by an ominous dark force whose threatening presence is overcome by the interconnecting relationships of the people of the Planet Theon and Planet Earth.

Sarah’s Landing is a work of pure imagination. September 10, 2001

This sci-fi tale is a perfect blend of fantasy, mystery, and romance working together in a most seductive way. The peaceful setting of this New England coastal village is anything but what it seems. Dark forces are at work breaking down the barriers of two separate worlds. Its rich characters will draw you in as they struggle to find answers to a century old mystery they believe is a connection between our own planet and one called Theon. Sarah’s Landing is the first in a four part series, and as such leaves the reader begging for more. The characters are real and complex, driven by compassion and loyalty. But where their loyalties lie is another matter. The plot is intriguing and spun in true sci-fi fashion. All the elements of a wondrous tale are here as Elena keeps the reader in suspense from beginning to end. I can’t wait to read book II, The Telepaths of Theon.

The Second Review is by Jackie Young: Correspondent of the Westford Eagle:

*/”Chelmsford author’s tale is out-of-this-world”/*

Even those who are not sure they are science fiction fans may be swept up in Sarah’s Landing-I, a spellbinding tale which takes the reader from the rocky shores of a small New England town to a planet in an undiscovered galaxy thousands of light years away. The wonder of it is that the author has managed to tell the tale of astronaut/biologist Joshua Morgan so convincingly. Her down-to-earth approach, soaring imagination and her expertise in software engineering are a winning combination. The kinds of experiences that her characters encounter have the ring of truth to them.

Set in the year 2055, the book centers around the hero’s attempts to solve the 111-year-old mystery of people who vanished 10 years before the new millennium, and the loss of the first starship, Earth Star-I which vanished 51 years later.

This fast-paced novel, which incidentally, is also a first-rate love story, will undoubtedly pull readers in. Bowman’s powers of description are second to none. Here is a book that is difficult to put down ? a real page turner.
