Book Description:

The threat of rift invasions seem long passed. Plentiful harvests abound. The Murian first-contact Terato Outpost has grown into the sprawling Terato-Murian Terminus Terato with a hub of relay portals reaching across the vast uncharted galactic expanses and connecting with its eon-extinct Lantaraan prehistory. An exploratory Terato-Murian Jupiterr outpost is established on the gas giant seventh planet, and its quantum and gravitational energies are used to power outpost portals for an archeological survey of the fourth planet, Eorthe. The Lantaraan database aboard Terato’s ancient Downday moon shows that one or more planets of the Solaris planets have apparently been lost. Expanded archeological records on other Lantaraan orbital bodies in the Solaris system show the fourth planet from the star—Eorthe—to be a sterile wasteland. Except it is not. Eorthe’s civilization is not to the level of the Murian Empire, but it is far advanced to those of a pastoral Terato. Terato and Eorthe form the confederated United Terran League under the nominal figurehead leader of League High Judikarr Eklam a’Qoc. Jupiterr outpost expands into a major League stronghold, Jupiterr Base, when civil unrest erupts in the League, the unexpected return of rift intrusions threatens, and the Murian Emperor Klarvko Celo is assassinated. As they prepare for confrontations with an unknown ancient enemy, the internal tensions on Myr and Eorthe push Murians and Teratoans to dangerous discords.

Book Description:

From a rocky outcrop a battle-widowed Etkaa, gazed down at the death and upheaval. Rancid green Murian blood stenched the dusklit breezes from the haze-dimmed river marshlands. Nothing has been spared by the Green Dragon forces of Bleikovia. In skirmishes along the Feldon River, Etkaa’s mate is fatally wounded with deadly selvon poison. Through a gruesome mountain trek of icy blizzards, they elude the Green Dragon. The battered starving Feldovats reach the coast at Eedov City only to be confronted by their implacable enemy determined to destroy the remaining Klarvkon rabble. Taking passage on crowded Maalon freighters, the refugees escape toward a new life among their Maalon hosts. Enraged Bleikovats move against the Klarvkons, bringing indiscriminate bloodshed. War once again surfaces, as it did in the muddy filth along the Feldon River of Malfesov, and becomes a different kind of war.

Book Description:
Generations after the great Murian upheaval of the Malfesian War against the Bleikovats, the Accords between planets Terato and Myr are signed. Provisional Outpost Terato is under construction near a farm where Teratoan orphan Eklam a’Qoc lives with his uncle and cousin.

Inquisitive strong-minded Eklam, Ek to everyone in the village, is captivated by the off-worlders technology, and becomes an apprentice to the Outpost Terato’s Murian commander, Grand Duke Korvo. Uncle a’Qoc disapproves; wants nothing to do with these outlanders, wants their shimmering doorway portals-of-travel banned from Terato. As Outpost Terato becomes operational it seems to become a harbinger stirring ageless secrets of The Old Ones and their frightful weapons, of ancient Teratoan ruins, mysterious glowing lights, unexplained killings, a sacred book in a language no Teratoan can read, a moon that doesn’t behave like a moon in its wobbly orbit.

From cosmic reaches beyond space and time the ominous secrets of Terato’s ancient ruins become more threatening. Ek and Korvo realize both their worlds face extinction with any hope buried somewhere in unknown galaxies far beyond a pastoral Terato or the sophisticated star-empire of the Murians; of missing planets in a star system with its single star in a galaxy far-removed unknown to Terato or Myr. They travel across the universe to a place long forgotten to fight this unknown foe with weapons only dreamed of. Together they face the beast that wishes to consume the entire universe.

Delilah Bluette – Guest Post – February 7

The Cairns of Sainctuarie Series

Delilah BLUETTE – Thank you for hosting the three volumes of The Cairns of Sainctuarie Sci-Fi series.

Genres are an interesting concept – tacked-on shelving labels contrived by librarians for what title goes on which stack – part & parcel of publishing-marketing overhead. The reading-writing-publishing communities view them as though they are a reality that isn’t real except for cover designs that entice yet signify very little. Pick a genre – romance, sci-fi, thriller, mystery. Any one is a gemisch of fiction, biography, nonfiction etc. They are chunks & pieces of love, hate, revenge, jealousy, success, or fulfillment racing harum-scarum through the word-and-sentence paint strokes created for the reader of tales being spun. Without the details of backgrounds, kinks, weaknesses & backbone, our characters are throwaways. Characters are cutout stick figures from our font or pencil-&-paper until they are shaped by details that grab & mold reality in the minds of our readers and their experiences. It is then that readers can identify with such trivia and make their favorites believable.

VOLs I-II-III Synopses

Vol I, The Bleikovat Event opens on the approach of a Clan Bleikovat invasion of the rising rivalry of the Feldon River valley clan domains. The all-out Malfesian War ravages homes and villages, splinters families, shattering the ancient customs of Myr’s Feldovat clan bloodlines – ultimately reshaping a destiny few Murians could envision. Generations pass. Most memories of the great Malfesian upheavals become tales of legendary heroes. Not all of the gruesome Malfesian memories faded.

Vol II, The Missing Planets, Myr has become an interstellar empire with a constitutional autocracy under the Clan Klarvkon Dynasty, expanding beyond the Murian home world system into unimaginable intergalactic reaches. On remote agrarian Planet Terato Murians reach a covenant with Judikarr leaders to establish a Murian relay outpost for continued archeological studies. One thought-to-be extinct Lantaraan culture of the single-star system on the far side of known Murian star maps proves to be inhabited, along with a powerful unknown adversary determined to erase all traces of Terato and Myr. Only the massive Lantaraan defenses on Jupiterr manage to stop the onslaught.

Vol III, Inanna Phantom, the threat returns. Urban centers devastated; populations displaced; civil disruption erupts; Eorthe government breakdowns with the ascendency of Teran League.
