Saardu | The Complete Series
This is a wildly imaginative science fantasy series. The first three stories were written for young readers (age 10-15). The characters and plots evolved and the final two stories were written for young adults. Fall in love with this planet, this universe, these characters, and have a mind-blowing blast! More
1 - The Adventure Begins
This book is not for you. You're probably looking for make believe. This book is different. There's a reality hidden between layers upon layers of complexity and the absurd. But what is the universe after all if not complex and absurd?
Saardu is more than another otherworldly fairy tale. Saardu is our history, our origin, and our destiny. If your mind is tough enough to endure the ramblings of an old soul, you will reach the jackpot.
It won't help you to know that 10-year-old readers have loved it and that it won awards for best screenplay (this is a novel adaptation). It won't help you because ultimately, you have to be willing to be in the gap, the not knowing. You have to be willing to wonder if everything you have been taught is a ruse in which you are a collaborator.
This book was written for young readers. However, since it does involve some death and dying, parents may want to read it with their children and talk about your feelings and thoughts as you go through Ruby's ups and downs on this planet, this sweetly scary planet, Saardu.
2 - New Game New Rules
This volume was also written for young readers. A primary theme of this series is to engage the reader's imagination to resolve life's stickier problems, and to face our universal fear of death with playfulness and possibilities!
In this plot, the reader will experience the great and grave travails of Ruby and a betrayed friend on this sweetly scary planet, Saardu, and its origin, Zenya.
3 - Deja Vu
This story was also written for young readers who have read the first two volumes and would now like to meet the ancestors on Earth. In this wildly inventive plot, you will witness a magical rebirth, and hear the first hummingbird's whispered secrets of the circle of life.
This volume reveals the true nature of what it means to be a conduit between the human present and our higher natures.
4 - The Mars Agenda
This volume is NOT written for young readers. The author decided it was time for Ruby to grow up, and therefore, if your child started reading this series at age 10, it is the author's recommendation that parents read books 4 and 5 to evaluate for yourselves when it would be appropriate for your child to read these stories.
Mars is more than the fourth rock from our star. It is more than sandstorms and unearthly extremes. Mars is kin to Saardu in a way that only its inhabitants can rattle the cage of a higher nature. Mars belongs to a future that, only if your mind is tough enough to endure the ramblings of an old soul, you will reach and be satisfied.
This story was written for young adults. It is dangerous, there are triggers, it touches on subjects that only survivors of human predation understand. This book is not for people seeking an escape from reality. No, no. The Mars Agenda is a political firestorm, upending everything. Everything. You have been warned.
5 - Zenyan Honeymoon
The 5th volume was written for young adults.
Zenya is dangerous. Ideas are dangerous. Love is dangerous. Especially when a Master of the Eclectic Muse, someone you think you know, but don't, someone who knows how to mesmerize, whose persona is hypnotic...and that great mind, that brilliant artist, becomes obsessed with your bride.
Welcome to Zenya, Dylan. You have arrived, dearly beloved. You have arrived, sweet newlywed, eager to find that sweet private bliss with your Ruby bride. Welcome to Zenya, dear human, to the eleventh dimension, where you truly must be careful what you whisper, what you wish for, and the powers of imagination, tempered with the steel of Zenyan ethics, will be tested.
Good luck finding your way back to your soul mate. Sincerely, Dylan, good luck finding your Ruby!
