A 700 line poem in blank verse on the German invasion of Crete and the Resistance 1941-1945The merchant vessel 'Persephone', fastest of her kind, is on a fairly routine run to the colonial world of Tanvella. En route, however, she encounters a derelict ship and then an unknown object which threatens to destroy her. Captain Duschelle and his crew must save themselves, and thousands of others, and reveal something deplorable, before they can hope to return home.
This is a tale set sixty-five million years ago in what is now Alberta, Canada, during the Age of Dinosaurs. Bladefoot the Troodon must depart from his parent's territory before they turn against him while dodging his long-time rival Cutter. Once he leaves his dwidling sanctuary, he must avoid vicious bloodthirsty predators that thunder across the land, swoop down from the air and lurk beneath apparent still waters. Bladefoot must also confront volatile armoured herbivores and the threats of an angry Earth if he is to succeed his mission of finding his own home range and a female companion to start a family. During his quest, Bladefoot will face many different trials and tribulations. For Bladefoot, failure is not an option if he is to pass on his genes to the next generation.
