The FIve Moons of Tiiana

The Five Moons of Tiiana

Author: Paul T. Harry


Domination and control are what some world orders want no matter what they have to do in order to take control. The Relcor destroyed over 33 planets and now the people of Corin no longer have homes. Those that could were able to go off -world others went to the deepest part of forests or mountains. As our story begins we meet Rez Cantor a lone officer living in Melela waiting to complete his final mission or orders protecting the Emperor and his family. But, a strange message comes to him and he is forced to meet with his immediate superior giving him more than just ordinary pause for thought. The Relcor are everywhere and their spies and traitors might go unnoticed. When Rez steps into the room with General Spires he feels the tension in the air and his demeanor and actions speaks volumes that something odd is about to happen. Left alone to guard the General’s office a voice is heard and this is where our story begins as the Queen enters the room and requests that he alone save her daughter from the fate that she and the Emperor will face. The peace treaty is a ruse and their death sentence is impending. The only hope for their people is her daughter Leanna. But, how is he going to escape even though he knows about the tunnels and the many ways he can do it? How is he going to get Leanna out before anyone is the wiser?  With the help of a memory pin cleverly given to him the answers might unfold. But, first he had to find a safe place to see what was stored on it and then a clever way to execute his plan. Upon securing a room and the necessary materials required he places the memory pin in the comm and what he sees and learns shocks him into action. With the help of a young girl whose services he does not want or need he is able to enlist her in his plan for her freedom. Just how this works out and what he finally does remains to be seen as I review The 5 Moons of Tiana by author Paul Harry.


But, some of the best-laid plans backfire when there are traitors amongst the group. Hoping to safe the life of the Princess and putting his plan into action would cost more lives than Rez expected. First, placing the young girl in harms way by putting her into a medicated state and then hopefully rescuing the Princess did not work out as he wound up beaten and parched on a beach. Trying to communicate with the glowing figures that he met proved futile and the end result of his stay on another planet would prove harmful to him as he was captured, tortured and placed in an underwater community as a slave. Those living on Aquella the Dolla as they wanted to be called would do more than just try to beat the spirit out of Rez but he would not give up. When people, or in this case aliens see someone that is different they fear them. The author brings to light what happens when first impressions and differences come to light and the lack of communication between people or in this case different species instills fear and hate. It seems that our author has brought sci-fi world right into our world with his story and this characters as we continue to learn the fate of those who tried to help him pilot out of danger, the Relcor’s power and where he winds up next hoping to escape Aquella.


As the author allows the reader to take the journey along with Rez he spends two years in captivity being tortured and tormented by the Aquella before making his escape to another place. Each time he thinks he is home free more obstacles are placed in his way, more creatures and more ways to prove that he is a survivor and will not give up on himself. As he winds up on Urlena and finds himself in danger again, the Dolla come to his aid but the Aquella are close behind and what happens next when a large dark nasty surprise would not only allow him time to escape but take care of the Aquella too. Darkness overtook everything the fever that raged within him would ravage his body and the end result would take him to another place. This time he was on Boutal and those he meets there would show him some kindness. Oolat and Ahska would be his saviors even though they were different races. Ahska was thought to be a healer or as he refers to her maybe a witch when things started to change. Throughout the years he meets with cruelty, savages, torture and now he learns more about these people. Hoping to remain there she tells him his next step and what happens next will change everything for him and Oolat. Meeting Wakula he learns that its King wants Ahska on Casita as a royal command but the reason has yet to be revealed. Casita is vividly described as a thriving metropolis more advanced than most of the cities described. But, as they made their way to this place they encountered a vile and savage group called the Brata who showed up. Circling overhead like a black funnel of clouds but what happened to them and their end was quite puzzling to the reader and the Rez. Entering the hall to meet the King there was a great deal of panic and fear. Would they surrender because the Brata ordered them to? They want children to feast on how savage. King Hazadek the king of the Motula would defend and was ready to fight. What followed were the demands of the Brata and the reaction of his people as he and the Queen entered. As Rez or now renamed Roolka comes forward he is considered a seer and his plans revealed. As you find out what happens on this moon of Tiiana called Casita. Threatening him as he states that he can make him even more powerful and stating he would spend his days trying to see the light of Tiiana. One yellow crystal and small leather pouch with white powder holds the answer to ridding the world of the Brata. But how? The plan to rid them of the Brata is graphically and vividly described by the author. As you meet each group of people, creatures or aliens you experience the adventures, the strife, frustrations and the tortures inflicted on Rez as he for the first part of the book experiences his life much like that of Robinson Crusoe on a deserted island alone with only his instincts and what was there to survive.


The battle started and the end result in sight but many lives would be lost before all was said and done. Princess Leanna was forever on his mind and next we will learn her fate. Finding her would bring great joy to him but what she reveals about the King would change everything and cause him great danger. Sometimes too much knowledge can be dangerous and those that are threatened by what you know often try to harm you even though you are just trying to help. As the King offers him and his friend more than just money to rid the world of the Brata but in doing so he was giving this King unlimited power and could he live with that? Communicating with the Princess proves his feelings for her and why he wants to protect her. Receiving note revealing the truth about her confinement and the King’s plans angers him and what is set in motion hopefully will rescue her as he and Oolat leave Casita and hopefully eradicate the Brata from Boutal. Each city would bring new challenges with the hope of returning to Melela. Luskia was next and as Oolat described it was like a dead place. With the help of the Solula they once again had the supplies they needed, the support required and would reach Talith within two weeks. Each step of the way getting closer to Leanna and but first the Brata. When the end result is finally there he finds himself in the company of those he left behind namely a Melelan named Phillip. The next step would be to once again rescue Leanna. Fighting the Zelca would be hard as the Queen’s eggs are bathed in Tiiana’s light and they fear the Princess will be lost. A rescue so daring, so bold that you will have to read it for yourself as you can feel the tension and the fear until the final outcome and they wind up back on Aura. But, at what cost? From Aura to Vashia, the Aristonian Desert and the Valley of Ghosts until they return to Luskia every step of the way overcoming the obstacles and the unknown.


How would they regain for Tiiana what the moons lost in the war with Zecla? Each race and people that he meets have disputes with others that want to take what is there’s. But, when he arrives in the next place and meets with the Holo will the voice believe what he has to say and help him with the necessary arrangements to finally end the war and bring peace? The Aquila are ready for battle and the man requirements and demands spoken. Salokka-Ril must remained unharmed can Rez and Oolat get this done before more lives are lost? What about the Princess? As the beginning of his adventure comes full circle with the present what will be the fate of everyone?


The battles are fought and the next is to see what will happen if he can regain the trust of one in order to save many. Join the battle along with the robots, Rez to find out who wins and who does not? Who will win the battle for Boutal? Will it be the Brutala or the Brata? And ending so explosive, filled with violence, hope, fear, and at stake the five moons of Tiiana and their destiny. Where will Rez and Leanna wind up? That only author Paul T. Harry knows for sure and of course the characters when they come back in the much-awaited sequel. Many worlds collide and many difference overcome but the end you have decide and learn for yourself. Five Moons each with different races fighting for survival. This is a definite must read for Sci-Fi lovers and lovers of intrigue and adventure.
