The science fiction series Waters of the Moon begins with a traditional theme, the story of a child growing up under unusual circumstances. Like Tarzan of the Apes and Clan of the Cave Bear, the novels seek to probe the most basic elements of the human character. Just as the Neanderthals sought to mold Ayla to their culture, Grey Waters is faced with a group of manipulative computers determined to create a new governor capable of fulfilling their strategic goals. Will he develop into a soulless tool of the computers, or struggle to overcome the most adverse circumstances? Just like C.S. Forester's sea-going tales of Captain Horatio Hornblower, each book in the Waters of the Moon Series is an independent journey. In book five, we find him striving to rebuild the struggling rebel republic following a failed invasion by the Northern Alliance. But Grey soon discovers he has enemies closer to home than planet Earth. Confronted by enormous new challenges, Grey must make the most fateful decisions of his life - with the future of a world at stake.
