Tonath is a planet in danger of being torn apart. Only one can inherit the knowledge to one day save the Tonathian people, and her name is Marika.
It’s been seventeen years since her father passed. Coming of age, she inherits a cattle hold, a trust account, and many gifts. One special gift is a chest, which comes with instructions that will guide her to the Bergman Mountains.
With a spaceship and the knowledge of three ancient civilizations, will she have time to access it all.. or will the Star Shifts hide the information, and drive her into the arms of her childhood love?
A work of exceptional talent
The love story of Marika and Dickon will ring in my mind long after the Star Shifts are over and the book comes to an end with the haunting final words.
21st-century science can indeed explain the catastrophes that overwhelm the planet Tonath at irregular intervals when space/time shifts. Although the previous novels in this series must better explain the lineages and genealogy of the aliens with two hearts, Marika stands alone as a work of exceptional talent.
