But the Loyalist Party is weak and there is little hope it will be able to defeat Videl Lai and his formidable army. 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, much to his shock and dismay, soon learns that many on Tarizon believe that he is this Liberator and is expected to lead the revolution against Videl Lai and free the Nanomites, Mutants and Seafolken from bondage.

This book is the turning point of the war. It did wrapped up everything but there are loose end that tells the readers, the story is far from over. This second book of the trilogy, takes up right where 1 left off. The hunt for his mate keeps you fairly riveted and almost makes you want to rush to get to the rescue. I was actually a bit annoyed, when the rescue occurs and she dies, but by the end of the book, it is resolved won't say what happens.

The only negative I can give was that with the build up of "anger" against the main bad guy, I was a bit surprised how little the main bad guy was actually in the book and when he is defeated in the end of this one, I was at a bit of a loss as I hoped that he would have to face the main hero. It would have been better if the main bad guy would have stuck around, but as I am in book three now, his adopted son is doing ok filling it in.

Tarizon: Civil War
I then came back to it and completed it before the end of the year. I dont recall the date of the first review, but it certainly, I surely dont believe, was in I have no way, as of yet, as on a 'learning-curve' here at goodREads Shelves: romance , fantasy , first-reads , suspense , sci-fi. It was a very good science fiction story. It had all the makings of a good battle between Leek the liberator and Videl the tyrant, to save Tarizon and the ones who inhabit it.
People believe in a prophecy of the one who will save them from slavery, It may just be Leek, but one thing that keeps him from giving up the battle is rescuing his mate Luci being with child and held captive by Videl. The story had many good characters and very good detail, with surprises from beginning to end. I highly r It was a very good science fiction story.

Shelves: firstreads. This is a trilogy consisting of the following: Tarizon: The Liberator Vol.
I enjoyed volume 2 very much and definitely plan to read the other volumes in the future. This series is in the science fiction genre which is one of my favorite types of stories to read. The planet Tarizon has been populated by citizens from Earth looking for a fresh start. As the planet continues with settlement, it is discovered that the original inhabitants include what earthlings call 'mutants', that is to say, beings, more animal or insectoid in nature that are intelligent and also have additional powers which humans do not possess.
As the government's seat of power shifts, an anti-mutant campaign begins to take place and this new world order begins a genocide against any and all mutants and sympathizers. The book was easy to read from the standpoint that the wars and political unrest made sense. It didn't matter that it was another world far away from Earth. What was more important is that there were universal emotions of love, family, loyalty, patriotism and respect for other beings and a desire to defend their new world against the reigning government which had no value for any type of life.
View 1 comment. This book was a pleasant surprise in many ways. I had read another book by this author which was somewhat of a disaster so I didn't expect much from this one. I'm happy to say it was a much better book.
