Dark Nadir (Sholan Alliance, Book 5)
Lisanne Norman
DAW (paperback, 597 pages, $6.99/$8.99 Can)
Publication date: March 1, 1999

Fifth novel in the adventure series. The cover of this one strongly reminds me of the pulp adventures of the 40s -- not a bad thing at all. "The world of Jalna had revealed many secrets to the Sholan-Human teams sent there on a rescue mission. Yet the planetary conflicts had led to the injured Carrie and Kusac being placed in cryo on a non-Sholan vessel, with Kaid desperately trying to rush them back to Sholan medical facilities. But before they could reach their rendezvous point, the ship they were on was caught in a Valtegan trap, leaving Kaid barely enough time to send Carrie's and Kusac's life-pods into space, in the hope that they'd be found by friendly forces. Kaid was certain he and his people were doomed, until a massive vessel suddenly materialized, scooping up both Kaid's ship and the Valtegan foe. Now all of them were prisoners of a completely unknown people. And only time would tell whether they'd fallen into the clutches of an even more deadly enemy than the Valtegans... "

But when one day father Pod is seen, their comfortable life is suddenly over. Everyone is after the Borrowers -- except for the one person who can help them. And so the desperate Borrowers must trust their fate to that most dreaded of creatures: a young human bean. From the author of Are All the Giants Dead? and the classic Bed-Knob and Broomstick.

Larry Ngitis is a writer with a real gift: precognition, of a sort. When his ability reveals to him the future of his current relationship, he packs up and heads for the sleepy town of Dry Water, New Mexico. There he hopes to get his life and career back on track -- that is, until he encounters a tenacious lightning storm with a personal vendetta against him, the knowing ghost of gunslinger Matt Carlson, a witch, a mage-necromancer, and assorted spirits, all of whom seem to believe Larry is the prophet of local legend -- returned to reveal the source of a mystical, magical spring of dry water. Note the special introductory price of $3.99 (US and Canadian). With a plot summary and a price like that, you can't afford not to try it.
