Book One (OSAYKS) closes with Thorlainen in a desperate situation. Time has run out, as Thorlainen takes command of a ship full of starved and PASC-processed deportees. Their choice is simple: flee for their lives or die.
The untested Aquatransporter functions well but who can help him operate it? They escape by forcing the Aquatransporter to speeds beyond its limit. Then tragedy arrives, as they are tracked mercilessly across the Great Sea. And, others, too, are in trouble on the sea.
Thorlainen is pledged to an affluent, but, he finds Chitmaa cool and often hostile, and he takes solace in the company of Sue Ling, but their friendship is restrained by the overbearing Tellurian social code.
If the death and destruction hurled at the Aquatransporter by the merciless tellurian pursuers was not enough, their vessel is severely damage by a strange galactical event.
These experiences subtly change Thorlainen's way of thinking, his approach to life, and his concept of liberty.
Yet, on and on, these survivors flee. They rescue some elite affluents, which put Thorlainen in a strange situation, but before he can understand what has happened, the sea state changes dramatically...and the Aquatransporter sinks...
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Zak B. Tjewels' life has been boats: Grammar School naval cadets, sailing, designing, building... Except for hitchhiking across North Africa and ending up under house arrest in Libya during the revolution, Zak spent his youth sailing the Caribbean and Mediterranean.
One day, and quite unprepared, he found himself in Finland. This country was a complete contrast to those far off sunny islands and, in staying here, Zak met his greatest trails.
Several times, he fled to the sun; back again to Africa, once to visit a missionary in Kenya, and then later, to teach ambulance drivers to drive ambulance boats on Lake Tanganyika for SIDA.
But, Finland is a land of linguists and he stayed there for his children. This decision proved right as, unlike Zak, who has never managed to ever learn Finnish, his children all speak the Finnish official languages and several other languages fluently.
Currently, Zak is a consultant and enjoys writing frequency converter related manuals.
