Dual Visions Book 1 of the Ancient Alien Series
Ancient Alien Theorists believe humans are descended from aliens that visited Earth centuries ago. They intervened to create an intelligent, adaptable and innovate race – people! What if it were true?
Richard Davidson, at seventeen, is leaving the family home. Orphaned at an early age he was raised by his loving aunt and uncle on a farm in central Victoria, Australia. His cousin, Bill, made his life miserable, especially since his uncle’s recent death. Now on a deserted stretch of country road, carrying all his worldly goods in his backpack, he strikes north to a new life. On the crest of a hill, he is taken away in a spaceship to the other end of the universe. There he finds friendship and love with his alien partner, Davrew.
Returning to Earth presents new challenges. Richard and Davrew endure bigotry and prejudice as they start a family but the local farming community do not know they are part of a new branch of the genetically advanced interbred race. How could the community cope knowing the truth?
Rakal, an interplanetary space pirate, crash lands on Earth near the Davidson’s home, threatening the family’s anonymity. He causes turmoil and impacts on the Davidson’s assimilated existence. Now the world is introduced to the Dual family for what it is. Will the world accept them? Will human and dual kind be able to unite to face another threat from space?
Vashla’s World Book 2 of the Ancient Alien Series
Throughout the Universe, Ancient Aliens travel the Grid, a slipstream wormhole-connected portal system. However, the descendants of the creators of the Grid have forgotten their shared heritage and some live by plundering, pillaging and murdering.
Vashla is one such space pirate. She lives on her own planet, VaLinta. Her cousins, Zorn and Rakal, are estranged. Zorn rules over his polluted mining planet called Zamba with malice, cruelty and careless disregard for his expendable workforce. Rakal now lives on Earth after partnering Tam, a dual gender citizen. He’s adopted a peaceful life, although always on guard to protect his human family from the threat of his cousins in space.
Gardt Ness lives on Ghaur, an overpopulated planet where the Government rules every aspect of the citizens’ lives. Gardt, a trained space pilot who has returned from a failed mission, is now an outcast within his world community. As a non-citizen, he has only the right to live in the home he grew up in, tending the needs of his estranged wife, her new husband and their family. Gardt wants to warn the people of Ghaur of the dangers in space. He fears the folly of a colonization program and is frustrated when his warnings are ignored.
Orthama is a dead planet with a scientific outpost space station orbiting it. The scientists are working to develop a breeding program to repopulate the dead world once it becomes habitable. The Elders on the space station research their records of the ancient past as they continue their experiments.
Zorn wants his cousin, Vashla, to be his partner, but when she rejects him in favour of Gardt Ness, he retaliates. Meanwhile, the reunion of Gardt with his former captor, Vashla, sets in place a chain of events that culminates in a battle between all five worlds – Earth, VaLinta, Zamba, Ghaur and Orthama – to survive against a common foe.
