BriggenIn the first book of this exciting sci-fi/fantasy trilogy, Briggen, the brawny warrior prince, is plucked from a hostile planet by the powerful wizard, Quinhelm, beginning his desperate plunge into the midst of an interplanetary war. Briggen and Quinhelm rush home as the powerful Xandoth and their allies surge across the galaxy, killing and laying waste to everything they encounter. As Briggen confronts the evil Sorceress of Endih, squabbling nobles and an assassin on his home planet, the great dragon Ephereon abducts the good sorceress, Telana, instructing her in the ways of magic. To her astonishment, Telana learns that she is the Chosen One, the one foretold by the ancients to lead the people of Mantasi to a stunning victory. Telana joins forces with Briggen as they battle the Xandoth for supremacy over the planet. Will magic and courage triumph over the powerful forces of evil?

 

Devils CrescentIn The Devil’s Crescent, hardened bounty hunter Diego Montoya descends upon a small Texas village in the midst of a cloudburst and boldly plunges into the life of beautiful, small time cattle rancher, Maggie MacNaughton. Diego is a man haunted by a past filled with death and disappointment, a nobleman fleeing from the dictates of his demanding father and an arranged marriage. When a U.S. Marshall asks Diego to infiltrate a gun runner’s operation, Diego reluctantly agrees, shadowing the powerful land baron, Morgan Lansing. Morgan’s efforts play into the hands of a group of Mexican nationalists, who quickly claim the land vacated by the terrified settlers until only one parcel stands in the way of their march toward the border — the one occupied by Maggie MacNaughton. Diego and Maggie match wits and wills as the danger mounts. Only their reliance upon each other has the power to save them from a swift and certain death.

CrenellationsCrenellations is a marvelous collection of poetry that will enchant and inspire the reader to the greatest of human emotions. This is a seamless journey from the mist-enshrouded hills of Scotland to the peace of the Cathedral at York, from the mysterious Stonehenge to the sparkling vision of a fairy bower, and from dragons and wizards to the simplest of Earth’s creatures. May this journey be but the first step as we stride the path of greater knowledge, embracing all that we are and all that we may some day become.

Genesis Book 4 Sarah’s Landing Series by Elena Dorothy Bowman

Genesis-SL-IV_54

Synopsis – *Genesis Book 4 – Sarah’s Landing Series***
As the fourth episode unfolds, around the year 2055 AD, two volunteers from the first group returning to Earth from Theon, appear on the outskirts of Waverly, Australia.  They notice that their craft has already disappeared on its mission to drop off the other members of the group at specific destinations around the globe.

The impact of returning to Earth causes havoc with their mental and physical senses.  After arriving at a pre-designated Safe House, the man and woman realize it is just the first step in their indoctrination back into a life they once knew.  Weeks later, they immigrate to North America and become integrated into the population at Genesis and at Ocean-view, as part of their re-entry.
  As the difference in the time rotation span of the two planets, Earth and Theon, begins to take its toll on Martha and John, they realize they tire more easily and no longer wish to teleport anywhere, except for emergencies.  They are content to watch the younger members of the group from Theon adjust to their new environment on the land they now call home—Planet Earth.

* * *

Andrew as commander of the Starship Pleiades has to patrol and protect Earth’s space station network.  Because of the advancement in technology, some of the stations are manned by Humanoids, a cross between an android and a human. The inhabitants at Genesis and Ocean-view are “tuned in” when the first challenge comes from an unknown source in deep space destroying a space platform, as Andrew is patrolling nearby in the Pleiades. Months later, when the second attack materializes, the people of Genesis and Ocean-view again glued to their telepathic visions, watch spellbound as the impending encounters are being played out in space. Mesmerized by the raging battle between the Earth forces, led by the Pleiades, and the Crlllion forces, led by the Barbarian, they are horrified by the visions of the Barbarians bent on destroying the Pleiades.

As the story continues Andrew introduces Adam to his girlfriend’s friend.  The two women become deeply involved with the two men and thoughts of marriage enter the minds of all.  As the Earth girls learn the secrets of their boy-friends lives, their ties to the Planet Theon, and the arrival and departure of people from that planet, the probability of their own travel by teleportation frightens them and they wonder if it is wise to continue their relationship.  How do they explain their feelings or their love for Andrew and Adam to their parents?  What do they do about the little known enclave of Theonians on Earth?  And how do they avoid hurting the people they’ve come to know and love without betraying their own family, their own people, or their own planet?

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.
