Tory′s twin babies are changelings and she must journey into the fourth dimension to reclaim her own ... Book 2 in The Celestial Triad Trilogy takes Tory and Maelgwn into the realms of the Devachan, the Fourth Dimension. They and their clan have had many peaceful years on the planet of Kila until Tory′s new twin babies, only a few days after their birth, are switched with changelings ... the babies now exhibit all the characteristics of fairy folk and, as with all deva infants, they are neither male nor female. Tory seeks the counsel of the Tablet of Destinies and is told that the changelings are the first of the Devachan to venture into human existence and that her twins are the first humans to choose to experience the world of the Devachan ... and all the babies are psychically linked. To reclaim their children Tory and Maelgwn must journey to the Fourth Dimension. At the same time, other human breeds are on the brink of war and Tory and Maelgwn must divide their energies.

The cup dropped from his hand as Maelgwn willed himself to Tory’s side, and he was gone before the vessel hit the ground and shattered. Maelgwn joined his wife in the nursery. She had ceased her screaming, but was weeping uncontrollably as she backed away from the twins’ crib. ‘What’s the matter?’ He grabbed hold of Tory to pacify her, whereupon she
new quarters under Chaliada was very reminiscent of Noah’s first meeting with him, which had occurred in another underground hideout in Central Australia back on Gaia. Noah entered to find the room thick with dope smoke and the music of Floyd’s youth blasting out from the system speakers at maximum volume. Since landing on Kila, Floyd had steered more towards the engineering side of information technology work, which perfectly complemented his extensive programming and code-breaking
time the computer obliged. ‘It’s Ciamah,’ Floyd informed Noah. ‘A small dead moon that orbits one of the Nefilim’s prime mineral mining planets, Nugia.’ ‘Who oversees the mines on Nugia these days?’ Noah felt uneasy about being sent to a destination in such close proximity to a heavily-populated Pantheon-controlled planet. Floyd winced. ‘Nabu and Tashmet.’ The pair of Nefilim were renowned for being a couple of very tough slave drivers. ‘In the main, they exploit Leonines, and although they
‘Anything to drink on this hunk of junk?’ Crow ignored Seagull’s taunt, as he checked the supply hatches. ‘Sure.’ Seagull produced a flask from his stores. ‘I couldn’t deny a dying man his last request.’ The old cook held his sides, laughing, whereupon Crow snatched the alcohol from him. ‘Try not to give yourself a heart attack there, Pops,’ Crow advised, taking a swig from the flask and quickly spitting it out again. ‘This tastes like piss!’ ‘Oh, sorry.’ Seagull reached into his stores and
