How would you feel – the you who believed you were the child of earthborn parents – if the stranger who rescued you from the sea told you to “pretend to be human…?”
What would you do if you were entirely alone and he promised to save you from the darkness that was, and is, Anstey – if you would only bind your life to his?
So begins Kat’s and Thomas’s perilous adventure. One born on the far side of the galaxy, one born on sixteenth-century Earth: if the two want to survive they must join forces, but will Kat’s strength be enough for both of them when Anstey strikes at Thomas? Would Thomas willingly sacrifice his own life to save hers? Surviving Anstey is a poignant story of love and danger where speculative sci-fi meets Elizabethan England
He’d imagined himself safe, restored, with her beside him;
instead he’s lost and alone and he can’t reach her anymore.”
Thomas cannot envisage any possible future with the love of his life. In the darkness of his depression he compares his own helplessness with the power only Kat can access. As the desperate pair try to make a new life beyond the confines of the exiled community, Kat battles to save him. But malign fate has much worse in store…
They thought they were safe…
they thought they were together forever…
But fate thought otherwise.
Across the galaxy a dark force is stirring – the shadow of a past that might become a future. Only Kat has the strength to save them…if she is willing…but then who will save her?

The trilogy is complete!
