The tale of TTH is on one level a straightforward road story. The party led by Lionel has left Terran inhabited lands and is marching by a circuitous route cross-country to Taryn’s Hall. The party encounters a steady stream of problems and dangers- things that they successfully deal with as they reach Roaring Gorge, the crossing point over the Yenisey River and where they will begin their final approach. In addition to the plentiful action, the tale provides the reader with a steady stream of character building about all manner of individuals on Sarnia.On a separate level the depth of the tale steadily deepens as the initial tale expands beyond the personal level. As the party progresses the reader will learn a great deal more about life in any number of Terran inhabited locations. The many supporting threads of the tale, particularly information about the various alien races also present on Sarnia, provide multiple opportunities for the reader to compare and contrast. Who are we? What are we like? It will also be possible to begin to answer questions such as: Who are they? What are they like? There are also multiple opportunities to wonder about why it is we humans value courage so much.Nor are the husband and wife team of Rhys and Li Na quite the clear-cut hero’s initially described. There is a great deal to learn about each of them. Information each reader will have to process and evaluate for themselves as the Planet Sarnia series as a whole unfolds.
