Synopsis: Tarizon: The Liberator

When a teenager discovers his father is working on a secret government project with aliens from the planet Tarizon, the project is compromised and Peter Turner must accept exile or be killed.

Tarizon is recovering from a series of super volcanic eruptions that nearly destroyed all life on the planet. It is slowly recovering ecologically but the political situation is volatile. The fight is between the Purists who want to rid Tarizon of a growing mutant population and eliminate all non-human intelligent life-forms, and the Loyalists who want to restore the Supreme Mandate that guarantees freedom and basic rights for all humans and other sentient beings.

Videl Lai has become Chancellor in a tainted election. Once in power, he renounces Tarizon's constitution, The Supreme Mandate, and orders the extermination of all non-human life forms.

The Loyalist party anticipating Videl's rise to power, has been planning a civil war to restore rule under the Supreme Mandate and stop the genocide. But the Loyalist Party is weak and there is little hope it will be able to defeat Videl Lai and his formidable army. The only hope seems to be a prophecy that foretells of the arrival of a Liberator from Earth who would lead a revolt to rid Tarizon of a ruthless dictator.

Peter, much to his shock and dismay, soon learns that many on Tarizon believe that he is this Liberator and is expected to lead the revolution against Videl Lai and free the Nanomites, Mutants and Seafolken from bondage.

What The Critics Are Saying

"Steve Anderson, AmericaJr . . . Tarizon: The Liberator is a blistering read . . . There's plenty of action to be had here and several nifty plot points, including the use of provoked downtrodden wildlife. . . It's very clever, and highly engaging. . . . getting a copy of Tarizon: The Liberator is a worthwhile move.

Reeden Wright
Galley Call: So. Independent Bookseller's Assn (SIBA). . . "The young adult science fiction audience will go for William Manchee's Tarizon: The Liberator, the first book in his new trilogy.  It reminds me of the Star Wars series, Among the Hidden (Margaret Peterson Haddix), Dancing With An Alien (Mary Logue), and Ender's Shadow (Orson Scott Card. This book has everything a sci-fi fan could want: an alien world, mutants, conflict and civil war, spaceships, super-technology and chapters full of action! There is even romance for young Peter."

Harriet Klausner, Alternative Worlds" . . . readers will enjoy this action-packed exciting thriller . . . William Manchee has created a fascinating world in trouble that anchors this exhilarating powerful morality tale. "
 
Molly Martin, Midwest Book Reviews. . . Characters are fresh, exciting, filled with vivacity. Dialog is fitting, often gritty, hard hitting potent. Storyline is attention-grabbing, engaging and out of the ordinary. Settings are nicely detailed, reader is drawn into the action, and interest is compelling from beginning to end. Plot twists, subterfuge, stratagem, and chicanery abound, heroes are heroic, and villains are down right vicious."

TOUR APPEARANCES

Since Tarizon's September launch Manchee has appeared all across America. First he attended two regional tradeshows, the Pacific Northwest Bookseller's Association in Portland, Oregon and the Southern Independent Booksellers Assoctiation in Biloxi, Ms. There has been numerous booksignings at Barnes & Noble stores, TV appearances in Chicago, Biloxi, and Tyler, and radio appearances in Ohio, North Dakota and Colorado. Tarizon was also featured in an article in ForeWord Magazine entitled  ForeSight Feature: The Hero's Crossroads: That Fateful Moment of Decision by: Todd Mercer, November/December 2008 Category: Young Adult.

Author's Note

Now just three months after the release of Tarizon: The Liberator,  production has begun on volume two, Tarizon: Civil War, due out next September.  Although it's been a difficult and unfamilar road, I'm pleaed with the reaction to the trilogy so far and believe it will become more and more popular as time goes on. On the positive side I certainly couldn't have asked the critics for better reviews. They have been quite generous. On the negative side, a crashing economy never does much for a book launch.  My strategy now is to focus on getting the word out that the Tarizon Trilogy is an exciting adventure that readers of all ages will truly enjoy. Hope to see you out there on the road.
