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

Battle for Thalia is imminent. RETURN OF THE MACA MARI COLLIER

5 STARS FOR RETURN OF THE MACA

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.”

FABULOUS MIX OF SCIENCE FICTION AND THE CLASSIC WESTERN! GATHER THE CHILDREN~~MARI COLLIER

Two aliens are living their lives in 1860’s Texas.

One is filled with rage against the world; the other drawn to return to his homeworld and reclaim his land. Before they learn to navigate a spaceship between the stars, they need to find trust in each other and stay alive in a hostile, dangerous land torn by civil war.

But after two strong-minded Earth women alter their plans, they must make hard choices about their future.

Is revenge more important than love?

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.”

5.0 out of 5 stars Embezzlement, murder and family ties

Reviewed in the United States on May 24, 2020Verified PurchaseOne 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.
