For young adults, a science fiction adventure set on an Earth where animals are smarter than humans. The story follows Corr Syl, a young warrior descended from rabbits, as he is drawn into a conflict between the new human species and the rest of the world’s animal species who refer to themselves as Tsaeb.
People from a human city are beginning to prowl around a neighboring Tsaeb district. The district council sends Corr Syl to the city to find out why. Corr has things he would rather do, but he goes, and he learns that the local human army has kidnapped a group of Tsaeb and is planning an invasion. To save the captives and discourage the trespass, Corr must choose between a strategy that might fail, and a more certain one that might cause a wider conflict. He doesn’t know about a larger threat than began forming after an insult a century earlier.
With its intricate plot, artistic landscapes, appealing characters, and rocketing intensity, Corr Syl the Warrior presents an original look at the impact of humanity on the Earth environment. Beautifully written, almost too literary to be genre fiction, the story’s tongue-in-cheek humor, hints of romance, and touches of science will delight a broad spectrum of readers.
