WORLDS AT RISK 2. An EPIC TALE INTO DARKNESS and beyond. Far-flung, far ranging, passionate and uplifting - hitch a ride on this intergalactic journey into the abyss. The idyllic planets Salvation and Liberty Primary lie in the shadow of the evil Hade, hell bent on devastation, cruelty and murder. The galaxy is about to plunge into barbarism. The only hope lies with a group of young friends who, guided by a sublime force for good, form a crew and embark on a perilous mission into the unknown. Visit the most outrageous nightclubs in the Milky Way; a super massive black hole at the centre of a distant galaxy; a developing world called Earth; and the terrifying world of a supreme military race, the Rann.

From the Author:

This is the second novel in my Worlds at Risk series and is close to my heart because it expands the vision of my first novel and explores the conflict between highly developed societies, fascism and dictatorships. In places, it has a strong spiritual element, which I have attempted to blend with action and humour. It also depicts depravity, violence and death-cultism that stands in stark relief to the serenity of the messiah figure Omigali and the synthetic, highly evolved species the Marleeseen. For a while, I published this as two novels, but some people began reading the second novels first and were not able to make sense of it. Some of the concepts are rather far-fetched, but they are symbolic and, after all, it is science fiction. Also, in this novel, I have tried to make some characters a medley of good and bad and a lot in-between. Again, I have introduced a 'lost in translation' element with some of the alien characters who are unable to understand non-verbal communication. My experiences as a teacher have made me an expert in this area!

From the Back Cover:

The back cover of the printed version is the same as my book description for this novel.
