5.0 out of 5 stars HAIL Daniel, the Maca of IshnerReviewed in the United States on September 8, 2016Verified PurchaseThis story is the sixth in the Maca of Don series. It contains the most intrigue of all the books. There are plots by the Sisters to overthrow all the Macas and kill all those who are males. There are those who support the Sisters, in both Ishner, one of the continents of Thalia and of Medicine, another continent. There is a plot to conceal two Sisters who murder the Thalian daughter of Llewellyn, the Maca of Don and his wife (called counselor). And there are questions to be answered about the Book of Gar, the Kenning Woman (does she have real visions) and their marriage. Finally there are questions to be raised about the new Maca of Ishner and how it is that no one knew who he was as he was being raised by the Maca of Don. The intricate details of the machinations of the Sisters and the others of the Council of the Realm are fascinating. After reading six books of this series I finally became convinced I knew what was going on here. The book is well written, is a cross over book but not for young teens or tweens. It is a good read that requires some willingness to do some rereading as you go along. I really enjoyed this one.

A new force has awakened in the galaxy. THALIA AND EARTH BY MARY COLLIER

Meanwhile, the newer members of the MacDonald and Rolfe clans are unaware of their alien heritage and abilities, and General MacDonald is carrying a heavy secret of other alien beings.

Soon after their arrival, The Maca of Don and Lorenz learn that there is a new presence in the galaxy… one bent on conquest and destruction.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hard to Put Down!Reviewed in the United States on August 27, 2018

Verified PurchaseI liked the overall book very much. I’ve already read the first and third books in the series ….. this is the fifth. I knew many of the characters from the other two books, but there were so MANY different characters in this book that I did have trouble remembering how they were related to each other. Several times I had to go back to refresh my memory. Of course, my memory isn’t as good as it was when I was young! I love the main families that these books are about, and look forward to reading more. When I have to force myself to put a book down to go do something else, I consider it a good book! Mari Collier does a bang-up job.

5 STARS FOR RETURN OF THE MACA BY MARI COLLIER

Battle for Thalia is imminent.

The exiled Maca of Don is returning to his homeworld to destroy the Justine and Krepyon conquerors, and break the rule of the House of Sisters.

Things spiral out of control as the Sisterhood attempts to destroy all male Macas, and isolate the House of Don. With escalating conflicts, the Maca and his friends enter a battle to find a new life and free their people from the invaders.

After the battle for Thalia is over, the galaxy will never be the same again.

Praise from readers:

★★★★★ – “Not one who regularly picks up science fiction, I found Collier’s book to be engaging from the very beginning. There is so much room for supposition regarding possible future stories. Well done.”

★★★★★ – “An unusual book with interesting characters and plot. The author’s vast imagination has created an incredible world, but shows that no matter where or in what time we live we all have the same emotions and desires. I recommend Return of the Maca to anyone who enjoys a great story.”

“Fantastic character development… twists, turns and surprises kept me turning the pages. I’m looking forward to the next Mari Collier novel.”

Antoinette is in danger.

After Red O’Neal delivers a beating to his half-brother Daniel for courting his sister Antoinette, she is sent to a convent until agreeing to marry an older, wealthier man.

Can their family survive the dangers of the violent Western frontier?

Praise from readers:

★★★★★ – “Fantastic character development… twists, turns and surprises kept me turning the pages. I’m looking forward to the next Mari Collier novel.”

★★★★★ – “This is a story that can captivate generation after generation, filled with well-researched ideas and powerful imagery.”

“A page-turning, extraordinary excursion that crosses genres.”

5.0 out of 5 stars What a good read!
Reviewed in the United States on November 22, 2018Verified Purchase
Mari Collier is a masterful writer, character creator and story teller. This is my first of Mari’s full-length books (I’ve read all her “Twisted Tales” books and loved them), and it won’t be the last. From her startling beginning to her brilliant ending, I enjoyed the story of an amnesia-stricken man who crash lands on a foreign planet. Yet, some things seem strangely familiar to him, and he seems to know something about surviving in a foreign land. It’s not until the very end that we discover his origins — at the same time that he does. The book is fascinating in its descriptions and I followed with interest what happens. I highly recommend you read this! Mari ROCKS!

Berk Rourke5.0 out of 5 starsWomen are Leaders, mostly more capably than men.

December 31, 2018Format: Kindle EditionVerified PurchaseThe makings of this story lie in the first of Ms. Collier’s books of Tonath which told of the birth of a young girl named Marika. She was a descendant of the Justinians, space travelers who settled Tonath earlier. Her brilliance and ability as an engineer enabled a whole new generation of Tonathians to escape the rigors of “star shifts” causing major catastrophes on Tonath. If you love a good science fiction novel then you should start with the first Mari Collier wrote and read through her entire series of books. They are all excellent, present exceptional characters well drafted, and story lines which keep you reading furiously. I thoroughly enjoyed this tale of a woman coming of age, becoming a leader despite all the machinations of self serving men. Women grace the lives of all who have contact with them. Mari Collier graces us all with her skills as an author.

“For in the true nature of things, if we rightly consider, every green tree is far more glorious than if it were made of gold and silver.” -Martin Luther

There’s a thread of unity amid battles, gunfights and arguments that is woven through this Sci-Fi Western novel from the beginning until the end. These factions are Silver or Green, something the inhabitants of Tonath find disheartening, because the disagreements about the correct star path leads to war and suffering. One character by the name of Brother Amos persists. As a Seeker, he’s rather impartial to war. In his opinion, a good map of the stars will provide clear answers and the best Pathway. Only time will tell which side, is correct about their assumptions. There are so many stars that need to be charted and many things to learn. We find him traveling with a group of Wayfarers, moving as far away from danger as possible. Among the Wayfarers is Venta, a single woman with a dream about building a refuge for divorced women called the Haven–and Jack Donald–a man with two hearts–from Thalia—another planet–who loves her. They need to escape the Green Marauders, Bentz and the Mechs so that Brother Amos can build an institute of his own and say, “We are neither Silver, nor Green. We are the Silver and the Green.”
