The fourth novel in the Ancient Ancestors Series
In 450 AD there is no United Kingdom, the Romans have left Britannia a generation before and the land is ruled in dozens of waring pagan kingdoms. This leaves the way open for different invaders from across the sea. Saxons arrive and violently overrun Glouvia Kingdom in the southwest where nurse Kyla O’Knife is helping survivors of a recent plague, wounded warriors and civilians in distress.
However, fate is about to deal Kyla a hand. Whether it is good or bad is still to be determined when Kyla is summoned to the dying king’s bed and informed that she is his daughter by one of his mistresses. The entire royal family has been assassinated so after the king’s death she becomes Crown Princess Kyla and ruler of Glouvia.
This is a pyrrhic position for the Saxons now rule the kingdom. They want her dead to discontinue the royal family line and she becomes a refugee. After rescuing enslaved women Kyla, who is helped by independent forest people, heads towards the hill country and sanctuary at a Christian monastery.
Her troubles are not over for Llandover Monastery had been hit by the plague and only one monk has survived. He is Brother Anthony who declares that the sacred building is for males only and women are not permitted.
How does Kyla persuade Brother Anthony to let the women and herself in? What problems are there with a clash of beliefs and personalities? And what of the land left behind?
Kyla is determined to help and sets about to do just that.

Solar Search by Ross Richdale
In the last days of an interspecies war, Captain Tara Fye is given control of Yolk 3, a secret spaceship hidden on an asteroid orbiting Earth. She ordered to activate the Earth’s final defence system against the enemy of hexapods, six legged insect species and their allies, electronic entities. The planet is sealed both physically and electronically from the enemy by an artificial bubble. No spaceships, including their one can land or leave Earth. As well, no audio or visual transmissions can penetrate the bubble from either direction.
Yolk 3 is designed to maintain human life until another world is found to save humans from extinction as an intelligent life force or, if possible to return in the future to reunite with those sealed on the planet.
Tara also finds several somewhat sinister facts about her superiors, including having a computer implant installed unknowingly in her mind and that outer pods encircling Yolk 3 contain hundreds of humans in deep frozen hibernation. They include, not only scientists, engineers and medical doctors but also many young women who have been impregnated without their knowledge in the hope that future generations would survive, even if the humans on Earth become extinct.
Tara and her crew are alone but the enemy still lurks out there ready to annihilate them without mercy if they are found. Read Solar Search to discover how Tara and those aboard Yolk 3 survive a journey to unknown galaxies.
