Thousands aboard Anthea are succumbing to a strange new disease. Will a solution be found in time to save them?
For 17 generations of man, Anthea, the sixth and smallest of the living bioships to leave mother earth in search of new planets, had been travelling through space without incident. However, now thousands of people are succumbing to an unexplainable disease.
As curious mutations in the plant life of the rear part of the bioship are also discovered, a series of severe quakes begin threatening the structure of the ship itself. While officials struggle with the task of finding solutions, a small group of students working on their term project discover a possible link between the disease and the changes occurring to the plants and the bioship. But, will they be able to help find a solution in time to save Anthea and the population?
The first of a three part series, the 60,000 words of CHILDREN OF ANTHEA will appeal to the Young Adult audience through its detailed new world, while touching on subjects such as telekinesis through mental abilities, spiritual growth, coming of age, evolution and environmentalism.
