M T McGuireabout this book: This is the last part in the K'Barthan Trilogy: a humorous science fiction fantasy adventure story (with a dash of romance - but no squelchy bits). The series is officially aimed at teenagers and new adults, and they are the people who like it best, but the oldest fan who has contacted me is 93 (and no, it wasn't my granny) and the youngest 10, so I'd say the appeal is universal. Truth is, I wrote it for me and I'm 46.
It's often compared to Douglas Adams an author friend summed it up recently as "The Hitch Hiker's Guide meets James Bond". Certainly there is a lot of humour, and there are a lot of my dream cars with added Bond style features: you know, All Purpose Torpedoes behind the headlights, the ability to turn into a submarine and go under water and of course the ability to fly... so they can have exciting dog fights in the skies above London - sorry, no that's book two. I'm getting carried away with myself.
I'd like to think it's deeper than light fluff in a quiet non-intrusive way. It's about facing down the forces of evil, standing up for what you believe is right, finding your heart - not to mention your spine. It's about doing the right thing when it would be easier to run. It's about good versus evil and the eternal hope that freedom and love will triumph and all will be well.
In this book, the final scenes are played out. Our hero had found his purpose and the courage to stand up for what he believes, even if it may be the last thing he does. Meanwhile, our heroine is still unbowed in the evil villain's custody, still refusing to kow tow or give him what he wants.
The future hangs on a single moment in a single day. I hope you enjoy the way it turns out.
