Editorial Reviews


"The young adult . . . audience will go for . . . Tarizon: The Liberator. . . It reminds me of . . . Ender's Shadow . . . This book has everything a sci-fi fan could want: an alien world, mutants, conflict and civil war, spaceships, super-technology and chapters full of action! . . . The reader is pulled into the story, learning along with Peter the language, customs, food, technology and . . . practices of this alien culture."  SIBA (Southern Independent Booksellers Assn)

"... Tarizon: The Liberator is a blistering read (I really can't recall the last time I burned through three hundred pages in just a couple hours' time) and will keep the attention nicely. There's plenty of action to be had here and several nifty plot points, including the use of provoked downtrodden wildlife (the Tarizonian powers-that-be seem to care about as much for their flora and fauna as they do for their people) as a weapon. It's very clever, and highly engaging. ... getting a copy of Tarizon: The Liberator is a worthwhile move." Tom Anderson, AmericaJr.

Lorin Boskie was a nervous young woman as she knocked on the door to her father s office. This was the second urgent summons she had received this week. Her first question was, Where s Jake. Lorin s husband served as a fighter pilot in the Tarizonian global Army, TGA. Lorin had reason to fear for his safety. Councillor Garcia assured Lorin her husband s arrival was eminent. It is a troubling time on Tarizon, The Seafolken, the mutants, about 90% of the population believe in the Prophecy and are awaiting liberation. Vice Chancellor Videl Lai, and his determined rise to power if successful will mean Lai will wield all but invincible power. The Liberator is to arrive from Earth to save the planet from a dictator. And from that beginning the reader begins a breathless rush, in which the fortunes of seventeen-year-old Peter Tuner, Texas dwelling son of Attorney Stan Turner and those of the Tarizon people will become enmeshed. On the pages of Cactus Island, Stan's son Peter was abducted by aliens when he unintentionally learned about their attendance here on Earth. Peter was certain that somehow his father, the CIA, who knows how many were involved. Young Turner was startled to learn his father was missing and set out to locate him, before he was able to do so, Peter found himself caught in a torrential downpour through which an eerie blue light shone, intensified and frightened Peter more than nearly anything he had ever before encountered. Peter s sudden abduction into a space craft, Earth Shuttle 21, brings him face to face with Lok, who is duty bound to be completely honest with Peter. A Treaty, that Peter had no idea existed between the United States and Tarizon; demands such. Peter will sleep out a year before his arrival at Tarizon, dreams, arrival, coming face to face with a fellow traveler, one Peter had thought was long dead back on earth, exiting the ship on a strange planet, assignment to temporary quarters and an assassins attack all serve to move the story forward. Life on Tarizon, growing friendship with Lucinda Dimitri who has been assigned to assist Peter as he becomes oriented to his new surroundings, learning new language, becoming aware of what his role in this strange new land will be, battles, danger and deceit carry the reader toward the closing paragraphs of Volume 1,Tarizon: The Liberator and will leave that reader anxiously awaiting Volume 2. Writer Manchee once again has proven his growing prowess as a writer. From the formidable body of works comprising his Stan Turner series; Manchee has turned in a very different direction with his exciting Tarizon trilogy. Characters are fresh, exciting, filled with vivacity. Dialog is fitting, often gritty, hard hitting potent. Storyline is attention-grabbing, engaging and out of the ordinary. Settings are nicely detailed, reader is drawn into the action, and interest is compelling from beginning to end. Plot twists, subterfuge, stratagem, and chicanery abound, heroes are heroic, and villains are down right vicious. Manchee has shown past proficiency for writing mysteries, he is proving adroit in this fantasy/sci fi genre as well... --Molly Martin Reviews

From the Author

Tarizon is slowly recovering ecologically from the super volcanic event that devastated the planet,  but the political situation is volatile as millions have died and the planet's infrastructure in is shambles.  Freedom and democracy is at stake as the Purists want to rid Tarizon of a growing mutant population and eliminate all non-human intelligent life-forms, but the Loyalists insist on maintaining the Supreme Mandate that guarantees freedom and basic rights for all humans and other sentient beings.

During this period the Purist leader, Videl Lai, becomes Chancellor in a tainted election. Once in power, he renounces Tarizon's constitution, The Supreme Mandate, and orders the extermination of all non-human life forms. The Loyalist party anticipating Videl's power grab, has been planning a civil war to restore rule under the Supreme Mandate and stop the imminent genocide. But the Loyalist Party is weak and there is little  hope it will be able to defeat Videl Lai and his formidable army, the TGA. The only hope seems to be a prophecy that foretells of the arrival of a Liberator from Earth who would lead a revolt to rid Tarizon of a  ruthless dictator.

Peter Turner, a high school student in Texas, much to his shock and dismay, soon learns that many on Tarizon believe he is this Liberator and is expected to lead the revolution against Videl Lai and stop the genocide of the Nanomites, Seafolken and Rhutz.  Tarizon: the Liberator is the story of Peter's abduction from Earth and the unfolding of the Prophecy that an Earthchild will lead the Loyalists in their quest to rid the Planet of  Videl Lai and the Purists.
