SYNOPSIS:  “Denounced by her own father and charged with crimes against the state, Kali Titian – pilot, soldier, and engineer – is sentenced to Abbandon prison camp, where she must somehow survive among her fellow inmates the Vary, a race she has been raised to consider sub-human; a race facing genocide; a race who until recently she was routinely murdering to order.

In Abbandon she encounters Mohab, the Speaker’s son, and stumbles upon two ancient energy sources which may just bring redemption to an oppressed people.

A story told from the heart, a book released to coincide with the United Nation’s International Day of Tolerance (November 16th 2019);  “Rise” is a potent tale of courage against the odds and the power of hope in the face of racial intolerance.”
