‘Searching for Maia’ – Part 2 of ‘The Peaks at the Edge of the World’

Jon and Jael have finally released Jael’s sister from her bondage to the dark forces she fell prey to with the Redlarks, but now they must venture into the unknown Far Wilds of their planet Terres.  As they do this, Jon decides to try a daring experiment involving parallel worlds—by bringing two Twenty-first Century Earth children into their bodies, to experience their journey with them.  And so Danny joins with Jael, while his sister, Ginna, joins Martina.  No one knows what impacts this experiment may have on each of the young people involved.
Thanks to Jon’s ability to Cross the GAP, they find a way to leave Terres, and begin searching for a planet called ‘Maia’—said to be the original planet of mankind—encountering many hazards along the way.  In addition, no one they meet in their travels seems to know where it is—or even if it is a real place, at all—and then they are captured by Rebels, the most feared force in the Galaxy.

Part 1 of "The Peaks" Trilogy - 'Finding the Light'

‘The Peaks at the Edge of the World’Part 1, 'Finding the Light’

On the distant planet of Terres, far in the future, a young boy—Jael—finds his family being torn apart by dark forces of the Galactic System.  Raised by his mother, and older siblings--who believe in a distant ruler called the True King—he soon finds himself alone in a world that is falling apart.  Now he must put his trust in a stranger named Jon, who claims he has the ability to cut across space and time—by Crossing the GAP.  Jael convinces Jon to take him across their planet—toward the mountain peaks at the edge of their world—to help him find his runaway sister, Martina.  But Martina has become possessed by the dark forces of the Redlarks, people who live in the Wilds.  Will Jon and Jael be able to release her, and escape to a better place?

This book asks “What if Christianity were to survive into the distant future--perhaps even another millennium?” Would this ancient religion have any meaning in a complex, future technology?  What would life be like for a tiny remnant who are severely persecuted, and trying to cling to ‘Old Ways?’

Looking for Hope

Boy, some days it is hard to get out of bed with a happy heart.  All the news is so depressing--people talk like the world is going to end soon.  Was the Mayan Calendar right, and the world ends on the Winter Solstice this year - 12/21/2012?  (Does this mean there's no point in Christmas shopping?)

I keep hoping it is 12/21/2112  Doesn't that number have more balance somehow?  Gives us another 100 years to try to get straightened out.

You know I have been watching history/documentaries lately--history can be as depressing as the future, but then it's over and humankind has survived.  The Black Plague in the 12th and 13th centures seemed like the end of the world to the people it affected.  The Dust Bowl of the 1930's here in the Great Plains seemed like the end of the world to the people there.  But here we are--still kicking, and making a mess...

I don't know the answer, but I guess it just goes to show that maybe things aren't always as bad at they seem--when we are in the middle of them.  If we step back, perhaps we can get a better perspective.

And last but not least, the One who is in charge is the only one who really knows the plan.  And to Him, "a thousand years is as a day, and a day is asa thousand years."
