The 24th of April marks 'Earth Day' of 2022. To me, it is absurd that we need an 'Earth Day', but it is a stepping stone towards a future where the earth is honoured every day for the magnificent, mysterious, hyper-intelligent life-giving force that it is.
This year I am embracing 'Earth Day' and celebrating it with the release of my new book, Maya of the New World - Book #2 in the epic fantasy adventure Maya Rising series - which is an environmental fiction novel that explores the repercussions of climate change and human ignorance on our planet, while simultaneously, a future in which we learn to live in closer harmony with the interconnectivity of the natural world.
"I personally found the New World inspiring. It gave me hope for the future of our planet (in terms of the climate crisis) even though the circumstances of the story were extreme and fantastical. It made me feel less alone in many ways." - Goodreads Review
FROM THE BACK COVER;
Maya, Björn, and the small tribe of humans who survived the Old World’s End in the dimension of Santōṣha return to earth, but it is not the earth they remember...
After climate change and excessive industrialisation resulted in natural disasters wiping the planet of all human civilisation, the land is bare. Nature has only begun to regenerate and the returning humans must learn to survive in harsh, desolate conditions.
When Maya gets separated from her tribe, she is sure she won't survive alone. But her unlikely companionship with a wild bear becomes a source of strength.
The threat of Sky Consciousness hangs more heavily than ever in the air now that the planet is vulnerable. There are many mysteries that Maya must uncover, including metaphysical powers that have been dormant within her. But she alone cannot defeat the Sky Consciousness. And she won't.
There are four others with powers that compliment hers.
Who are they? And how does she find them on a desolate planet?
