But what they find out will bring their part of the galaxy to the brink of war… and beyond.

5.0 out of 5 stars HAIL Daniel, the Maca of Ishner

Reviewed 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 MAGNIFICENT READ FOR SCI-FI FANS! THALIA AND EARTH BY MARI COLLIER–CHRONICLES OF THE MACA BK 5

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating and well researchedReviewed in Canada on November 12, 2020

Verified Purchase

Fascinating after the initial scene was set! I was rather confused with the unfamiliar names and cultures presented in the first couple of chapters as it had been some time since I’d read the preceding series, but the Earth experiences and the final chapters were enthralling and satisfying to read. Obviously a great deal of research and review went into the writing of “Thalia and Earth”.

As well, the author’s voice shone through in her retelling of her faith and her personal belief in extraterrestrial contact. The story revealed an underlying physical sensuousness in description and innuendo. The accounting of records and books for the Board sounds authentic and very practical, probably in experience. Any questions about the aliens were answered in my mind, as well as the strange Scottish dialect of the Justines. That’s just how they talk, and they occasionally drop the Scots manner of speaking to speak “plainly”. Perhaps MacDonald had Scottish forebears, like my own, or the feisty Highlanders of my own ancestry came from the stars in former times?

A very well written and researched series, this may be the final book in a family science fiction saga that stretches through generations. Our loss, but to Mari Collier, the skillful author, I would say, “Write on!”

Battle for Thalia is imminent. RETURN OF THE MACA 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.”

“This is a story that can captivate generation after generation, filled with well-researched ideas and powerful imagery.” BEFORE WE LEAVE BY MARI COLLIER–CHRONICLES OF THE MACA

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

★★★★★ – “I enjoyed the purely western start, and the aliens and otherworldly part fit seamlessly. An odd combination to be sure, but the author makes it work.” GATHER THE CHILDREN– MARI COLLIER –CHRONICLES OF THE MACA

PRAISE FOR GATHER THE CHILDREN:

★★★★★ – “This story puts you right into Texas in the 1850s. As a fan, and student, of science fiction for 40 years, I can honestly say this is one of the best. Thank you, Mari.”

★★★★★ – “This story of the juxtaposition of western and space aliens is interesting. The clash of cultures is not quite what might be expected, but it leads to an interesting read.”

★★★★★ – “I enjoyed the purely western start, and the aliens and otherworldly part fit seamlessly. An odd combination to be sure, but the author makes it work.”

★★★★★ – “I highly recommend this to everyone that is searching for a sci-fi story that they can actually relate to. Cannot wait for the next novel.”

One hundred years have passed since the Maca of Don returned. Daniel has taken his rightful place as Maca of Ishner. But his territory is broke, and losing money by the day. The sisterhood is battered and broken but not forgotten and some are still willing to murder other Thalians. Mari Collier hits this one out of the park with what may be her best work yet. This fast moving read has suspense, murder and intrigue that keeps you turning the pages. Best read after Rise and Fall of the Maca’s, you must at least read Return of the Maca in order to have the whole picture.
