The mining colony at Drumwall Fortress on the planet of Cumaro was the ideal assignment: pristine, wild, and beautiful; with but one deadly flaw; Lord Banyon, the local tribal chieftain of the Mautlaut. Two years prior to Father Andrew's arrival, his predecessor, Father Menlo, disappeared under mysterious circumstances. Now, a Mautlaut runner brings a message from Lord Banyon - written in flawless English. Could Father Menlo still be alive? Based on the works of St. John of the Cross' the Dark Night, and St. Teresa of Avila's Interior Castle, Drumwall is a science-fiction free-fall into a barbaric world where a Carmelite priest's faith is pitted against man, the elements, and his own psyche. Echoing the Book of Job and the Psalms, Drumwall is a mix of Carmelite Spirituality and the Old and New Testaments. Drumwall is not just a look into the future, but a monumental recall of the past. Drumwall is a step into the supernatural realm of Christian mysticism, and its ultimate outcome in the life of one man.
