In his quest, Sabienn Feel and his brothers venture to the country of Turrland, a land that his homeland of Hayddland has been at constant war with.
His mission is to seek the occult stone, the Symbol of Military Success and make sure it never falls into the hands of his Father who wants only to push the planet into the abyss of war. In this journey, he needs to seek a book that was once owned by a mysterious monk.
But what of Turrland? Is it to be invaded or not invaded? And how will he react when in his attempt to get answers, there is conflict within his group and a much loved brother dies?
Why The Sister Moons Swallowed Rage is the third of twelve books in the Sabienn Feel Adventures.
Interview with the Author
Q – That's three books down. How's the journey unfolding?
A - The characters are evolving. The more adversity they face the more they grow. There's significant skin taken off Sabienn Feel in this book. His character is gaining wisdom. It was a pleasure to write this third book in the series.
Q – Any news on the next book? The fourth in the series?
A – I'm working with the tentative title, "The Two Men Who Kill to Be Carbon". This is actually explained on the final page of "Why The Sister Moons Swallowed Rage" and also explains why the first book "When The Stone Shepherds Awaken" had to be so long. It is to be a study into the hunter and the hunted. Twins, two men, have been assigned to kill Sabienn and his brothers. One man is Sabienn's best friend. The other has killed the woman he loved. It's a mission of kill or be killed.
Q - What inspired you to write The Sabienn Feel Adventures?
**A – I've always loved the idea of the epic journey. I'm acquainted with the book Journey to the West but was more familiar with the TV series in the 80's based on the book called Monkey. The idea of four souls travelling across a wide expanse of geography to complete a quest appealed to me. So I planned a series of twelve books to go from one place in the south of this space colony that they live on twice removed from Earth, to end up in the north, meeting danger at every turn.
Q – Why does your main character Sabienn Feel grow wings?
A - Good question. I wanted something very drastic to occur to these people physically. Something that would be difficult to hide and offer an immediate prejudice. The idea of growing wings constantly came up for me. There's a Pearl Jam song I found inspiring that says, "And sometimes is seen a strange spot in the sky. A human being that was given to fly". And in my mind's eye, I could see this figure. Almost like the Led Zeppelin Icarus logo but with bat wings. But they couldn't fly otherwise they'd hit the sky and the journey would be over in no time. I made them only able to swim because being submerged in water has elements of dealing with the subconscious. To me it satisfies all elements of those prophecy, fantasy, epic adventure type of stories that involve friendship and brotherhood.
Q - So, why should readers give these books a try?
A – Well I would say they were humour-filled, page-turning, epic, fantasy adventure novels which involve a quest. But then that's what you would expect me to say. Why not try and read one of the books and let me know what you think? Some of the books are free so you've got nothing to lose.
