The entire Encounters series is now available in one anthology!
Genetically engineered winged humans —’Angels’ — were hunted almost to extinction, but now live safe and wild on Quarn, untroubled except for the occasional fossicker like Dinun qel Noto.
In On Wings, Rising Dinun’s encounters with one very unusual Angel, Small Moon, sets the scene for more interactions between the races, which might lead to the salvation of both – or their destruction – when the Angels are attacked by offworlders, with tragic consequences.
In Reaching Higher the defeated invaders can never go home. But when Kine Raelne, chooses to work with his captors, he finds his life and his world view turned upside down by the enigmatic and brilliant chimeric human, Suaj qel Gwan. Will enemies become friends? And where will that lead?
In Bound To Fall, Kine Raelne is settling well into his new life, working for Quarn to improve life for its people.
Dinun isn’t faring so well. Life with the Angels can be hard for a weak human, however much in love he is with Moon.
The arrival of visitors from Rael’s former home, throws everything and everyone into confusion. They offer opportunites, hope – and second chances. How can Rael and Dinun refuse?
But there are more terrors to space travel than the risk of an exploding ship, and Rael, Suaj, Dinun and Moon find themselves caught up in political manoeuvrings which threaten them all.
