Rebecca Brynabout this book: An epic adventure set in North Africa during a period of religious and social turmoil. Abe has his own agenda decreed by a long-dead pope, but when Kiya is kidnapped by a rival high priest to fulfil an ancient prophecy, his conscience is torn. Does he save his friends' lives or mankind's eternal soul? Could Kiya's child of rape be the one, or is all prophecy dangerous? Kiya has a life-changing decision to make, Raphel must find his courage to aid her, Alaric must be shown the error of his ways, and Velik must be defeated before he destroys them all, but at what cost and what will Abe's part be in the unfolding struggle?
Where Hope Dares is a thought-provoking tale that explores the origins of religious belief and democracy, the effects of climate change on humanity, and mankind's foolhardy dependence on technology. It went through many changes on its ten year progress towards publication. The research into climate change was terrifying and the book is based on the thinking at the time of writing, some of which has already come to pass. There's also a fascinating postscript about the history of our planet's climate for those who are interested in the science behind the book.
In a time of uncertainty and change, I felt the need to inject a little hope, hence the title, for mankind is nothing if not resilient, courageous, and ingenious.
