The Sovereign Movement has been the only hope of stopping humanity — the survivors of Solar Flash — from a totalitarian takeover. But its challenges are increasing by the day. Life is hellish for the workers who have to labor under unacceptable conditions, and they include students who are pulled out of the University to contribute to the labor force. Imperial Governor of Sector 10, Charles Scholtz is a dictator who will stop at nothing to compel the citizens to his nefarious whims. But things get even more complicated when Biate, “The Mad Queen,” gets into the scene with her robot military force. Caellum, the leader of the Sovereign Movement and Dora d’Arc are worried because The Mad Queen is determined to have a royal child and her eyes are set on Dora’s son, Michael d’Arc Nichols. But the governor also has plans for him. Can Dora and Caellum keep their son safe as he becomes the center of a power struggle between two powerful entities? And can Caellum’s efforts ensure freedom and justice for his people?
On Winged Gossamer by Victoria Lehrer is the third book in the New Earth Chronicles, a well-crafted science fiction novel with a strong post-apocalyptic setting. I have read the first book in this series, The Augur’s View, and was fascinated by the author’s imaginative setting and the strong writing, so when I picked up On Winged Gossamer, I wasn’t expecting anything short of excellence. And again, Victoria Lehrer delivers an experience that is far beyond my initial expectations. This is a great story that is beautifully told. The setting is a world that has been pulled asunder and where the strong take advantage of the weak. Science has evolved to a level where an army of robots is a reality and where cloning is a practice that is no longer uncommon. Victoria Lehrer creates an imaginary world that is exciting to navigate. I loved the way the author writes about the revolution in which the poor masses rise against their oppressors. On Winged Gossamer features unforgettable characters, a well-imagined post-apocalyptic setting, and a monumental conflict. The twists will entice any reader and keep them rooting for the characters.
