Legends of the Ells 1 Tomorrow's Children
This is the first book in a fantastic new saga. It grips from the first sentence, catapulting the reader into an amazing world of the near future. Vividly told, lit by flashes of beauty, the young hero's adventures open up wide horizons to surprise and challenge the reader. The opening escape scene carries little hint of the astonishing destiny waiting for Yani and his small band of friends. More
This exciting action driven tale is set mainly in Spain in 2436 AD. During the previous four centuries most of humankind`s problems have been solved by the intervention of the Ells, a wise humanoid race. Apart from a handful, these have now left Earth. A few young half Ells remain on Earth to counter any action by power hungry dissidents.
The story is centred on Yani, a young, apparently orphaned, gypsy boy, unaware of his Ell heritage. Character development of the various protagonists drives the plot, which deepens throughout the trilogy. The use of 'magic' has been avoided as a series of new concepts and inventions is woven into the story, many of these being extrapolations from current (21st century) scientific theory.
Aided by the awakening of unusual abilities, Yani, just fourteen, escapes from Polonia, where he has been held for years by smugglers.
Far in the south he finds friends, his heritage and a mission that involves him and his friends in great danger. These dangers escalate towards an exciting climax in the Pyrenees.
Finally, with his 15th birthday approaching, Yani discovers more about the Ells and their world.
A fourth book is nearing completion.
