Videl Lai is dead and Tarizon's cataclysmic civil war is over, or so most people think, until Tarizon's Intergalactic Fleet refuses to surrender. Then Videl Lai's adopted son, Evohn Cystrom, masterminds the escape of Rupra Bruda, recognized to be the father of the Purist movement. As the Fleet defiantly leaves it's moon base on Clarion, Cystrom informs Chancellor Lorin Boskie that they intend to travel to Earth, conquer it, and someday come back and destroy Tarizon. The Chancellor, at great personal political risk, puts together a rag-tag armada of Earth Shuttles to try to beat the Purists to Earth and warn the American government of the impending invasion. The odds of the Loyalist armada reaching earth before the Purists, or even surviving the trip against the powerful Purist fleet, are long but Commander General, Leek Lanzia, is determined to save Earth and destroy the Purists once and for all.

"The young adult science fiction audience will go for William Manchee's Tarizon: The Liberator, the first book in his new trilogy. It reminds me of the Star Wars series, Among the Hidden (Margaret Peterson Haddix), Dancing With An Alien (Mary Logue), and Ender's Shadow (Orson Scott Card) . . . This book has everything a sci-fi fan could want: an alien world, mutants, conflict and civil war, spaceships, super-technology and chapters full of action! There is even romance for young Peter. SIBA Galley Call by Reeden Wright

" . . . readers will enjoy this action-packed, exciting thriller . . . William Manchee has created a fascinating world in trouble that anchors this exhilarating, powerful morality tale. Harriet Klausner, Alternative Worlds

." . . Characters are fresh, exciting, filled with vivacity. The dialog is fitting, often gritty, hard-hitting potent. The storyline is attention-grabbing, engaging and out of the ordinary. Settings are nicely detailed, the reader is drawn into the action, and interest is compelling from beginning to end. Plot twists, subterfuge, stratagem, and chicanery abound, heroes are heroic, and villains are downright vicious." Molly Martin, Midwest Book Reviews

..". Tarizon: The Liberator is a blistering read (I really can't recall the last time I burned through three hundred pages in just a couple hours' time) and will keep the attention nicely. There's plenty of action to be had here and several nifty plot points, including the use of provoked downtrodden wildlife (the Tarizonian powers-that-be seem to care about as much for their flora and fauna as they do for their people) as a weapon. It's very clever and highly engaging. ... getting a copy of Tarizon: The Liberator is a worthwhile move." Steve Anderson, America Jr
