Format: Paperback
Majesty's surface was covered by jungle. Jungle, in some areas, that was six miles DEEP. Nobody had EVER seen what lay at the bottom, not even the natives, the taflak, knew what was under the Sea of Leaves. So when Lysandra and her father, G. Howell Nahuatl (both characters from Tom Paine Maru) are hired to test out a subfoline they don't know what they will find. A Yeti, a lost civilization and the Hooded Seven. Oh my.

The first few chapters overlap the last few chapters of BrightSuit MacBear. In fact, both Middle C and Goldberry, characters from BrightSuit MacBear, become major characters in this story.

Here is the funny part. When I first red this story years ago I knew nothing about the Confederacy Series or about L. Neil Smith. I enjoyed the story, then years later found The Probability Broach and only now have linked the book to the author. Taflak Lysandra is a adventure story, first and last, set in a different universe. Once again, you could read it as a stand alone, like I did so many years ago, or as part of the greater whole, like I just finished doing.

I've enjoyed all of the Confederacy (not southern confederacy) books written by L. Neil Smith since the first one "The Probability Broach." However, this one was the least enjoyable of the stories.
Similar plot line to most of the others. Free and highly armed individuals whip evil pro-government conspirators.

This is a story in the universe of 'Probability Broach' by the same author. It is the second of a sub-series in a juvenile vein - Brightsuit MacBear was the first - and the third hasn't been written yes as of October 2013.

The Taflak are an alien, tripodal race that lives on a world smothered in greenery gone wild - thousands of kilometers deep at the equator. In this adventure we find clues to what caused the growth, and what the planet was like before.

Science fiction in a libertarian-philosophy vein.
