If anything, Margaret Afseth is a survivor. She spent most of 2014 battling Cancer, a tumor pressing on the optic nerve. Now she counts herself among the rare few who, in her words, conquered the 'Beastie'. Though now, sight impaired, with the aid of her daughter to publish, she continues to write.
From an early age, she was making up stories. While raising her four children alone, she wrote her first novel...in long hand. Unfortunately, she gave the only copy of the manuscript to someone of the opinion, she should not be writing at all. He burned it.
Discouraged, she went underground, not surfacing again until her senior years, when at the age of seventy, 2013, she rewrote and published, as a three part series, the lost novel, calling it The Aopato Chronicles.
Since then, Margaret has gone on to write the Noor Chronicles, published 2014, the last book of which was written while she was undergoing Chemo and Radiation treatment.
Her present set of novels are the Deception series. These books take a good look at survival in our most imperfect world...
Margaret is a widow, with four grown children, five grandchildren, and one great grandchild. Her experience comes not from academic education, but from the great reservoir of knowledge, gained from observing human nature.

What an amazing series! This third book in the Aopato Chronicles did not disappoint. I loved every minute of it! I will miss reading about the wonderful adventures of these unique alien people. I really hope there will be a book four in the series someday!

In this final installment of the trilogy, the Aopota once again find themselves looking to strengthen themselves and surviving the onslaught of the Opposites. Through the character of Ty we begin to see how the Opposites occur. And then we see the hope that Sonya has in dealing with them. We see her empathy in the situation. This installment has humour, irony, romance, and all the necessary elements to make the story come alive for the reader. I encourage all of you to this book! It is a MUST read.
