Dr. David Christopher Meenins is a man in search of his past.
Accompanying him on his journey of discovery are the powerful Lady Drasher Elizabeth Tasgneganz, the pedantic Dr. Virgil Augustus Grammario, the mysterious-and possibly alien-Linda Deemer.
Dr. Meenins is haunted by memories of alien places and of a race called the Longists. Together, the group travel to the one place in the world the Longists might reappear: a remote abbey inhabited by an order of nuns known for their wisdom, mystical insight and quality brandy.
Throughout the journey, the specter of David Shanklen looms. Shanklen claimed that he was kept prisoner in an alien zoo maintained by the Longists. Through Shanklen, Dr. Meenins must find the new resting place of the dead.
Meenins’ journey is more like a pilgrimage than a quest. The travelers exchange stories along the way à la The Canterbury Tales, and the discovery of the resting place grows out of their long friendships.
Stella Atrium is author of three fantasy books of the Dolvia saga: SufferStone, HeartStone, StrikeStone.
“Many fantasy stories today are set in Medieval times with castles and horses and magic and princesses needing rescue. Nobody asks, ‘How did these humanoids get here?’ or ‘Why are there so many races of people?’
So I wrote a fantasy series with several races (no elves or dwarfs or vampires), except I placed events in today’s world with helicopters instead of horses, and peace-keeping soldiers instead of warriors, and the internet instead of ravens.
Events take place on another planet discovered by a mining interest from Earth led by the Chinese. Other adventurers are from America, France and Australia. They work for a consortium of inhabited planets where people have government, repression, murder for hire, and all the ills of competition in the marketplace.
If you’re tired of castle stories with endless battlefield scenes, try a planet story that reflects our world and the struggles of women living under the burka. Actions that become legend, leading by example, taking the difficult route – all these may be inspirational to young women today who are allowed few privileges at home or at school.” — Stella Atrium
