“Thit an long i dtreo an phláinéid dheirg, í ag luasghéarú i gcónaí. Bhí na cúrsóirí á leanúint agus, mar a shíl A-Hiom, bhí siad ag teacht suas leo, beagán ar bheagán. Líon Na Hasta an radharc ar fad a bhí rompu agus chonaic Sál na sraitheanna de scamaill agus stoirmeacha ina nguairneáin, iad oráiste agus bán, ag casadh leo in atmaisféar meirgeach an phláinéid.”

Escape on a Cargo Space-Ship

Sál and Ríosa are on the run from Roghail, a small moon off Neasg, They escape on a cargo ship — with the human-crocadile Sergeant Rathaid hot on their heels. But out there waiting for them is a greater menace — and, unknown to her, Ríona hides a secret that will bring the forces of destruction upon them.

“Ach ní hé an greann folaigh ná an insint chaolchúiseach is cás linn ach gur píosa léitheoireachta é a thugann siar amach tú, nuair is iomaí sin brí atá le siar amach. Tá cúpla radharc ann a bhainfidh den talamh tú, go háirithe an ceann ina bhfuil ríomhaire atá ceangailte le hintinní agus le coirp daoine. In ainneoin a bhfuil de chineálacha de neachanna anseo, is scéal daonna atá ann ar deireadh, óir mura mbeadh, ar éigean go mbeimis in ann é a thuiscint ná spraoi a bhaint as. Agus scéal é seo a bhfuil spraoi agus tuiscint agus go leor thairis sin ann go gúgallach.” Alan Titley, Tuairisc.ie
