Product Description

Product Description

Aneka Jansen, born on Earth in the twentieth century seems to have been revived after a thousand years of relative peace only to find herself in the middle of a war. As the Herosians manoeuver themselves into a better position for victory, their actions hidden behind subterfuge and high technology, there seems to be little anyone can do to stop the coming war.

But a sudden revelation will plunge Aneka and Ella deep into the conflict while their friends fight for their lives amid a war of giant starships and planet-smashing weapons.

More About the Author

I was born in the vicinity of Hadrian's Wall so perhaps a bit of history rubbed off. Ancient history obviously, and border history, right on the edge of the Empire. I always preferred the Dark Ages anyway; there's so much more room for imagination when people aren't writing down every last detail. So my idea of a good fantasy novel involved dirt and leather, not shining plate armour and Hollywood-medieval manners. The same applies to my sci-fi, really; I prefer gritty over shiny.


Oddly, then, one of the first fantasy novels I remember reading was The Dark Is Rising, by Susan Cooper (later made into a terrible juvenile movie). These days we would call Cooper's series Young Adult Contemporary Fantasy and looking back on it, it influenced me a lot. It has that mix of modern day life, hidden history, and magic which failed to hit popular culture until the early days of Buffy and Anne Rice. Of course, Cooper's characters spend their time around places I could actually visit in Cornwall, and South East England, and mid-Wales. In fact, when I went to university in Aberystwyth, it was partially because some of Cooper's books were set a few miles to the north around Tywyn.


I got into writing through roleplaying, however, so my early work was related to the kind of roleplaying game I was interested in. I wrote "high fantasy" when I was playing Dungeons & Dragons. I wrote a lot of superhero fiction when I was playing City of Heroes. I still loved the idea of a modern world with magic in it and I've been trying to write a novel based on this for a long time. As with any form of expression, practice is the key and I can look back on all the aborted attempts at books, and the more successful short stories, as steps along the path to the Thaumatology Series.


Writing, sadly, is not my main source of income. By day, I'm a computer programmer. I work for a telecommunications company in Manchester, England. My favourite authors are Terry Pratchett, Susan Cooper, and (recently) Kim Harrison. Kim's Hollows books were what finally spurred me to publish something, even if the trail to here came by way of Susan, back in school, several decades ago.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth a read - as ever 14 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The Aneka Jansen books are not the greatest science fiction ever written, but they are entertaining. At the price, I think they are a bargain. As with any series of books, there are elements that are pretty much predicable, but Niall Teasdale does manage some twists that surprise. I think there are several unresolved strands still going, so hopefully some scope for at least a couple of additional titles. I do wish Teasdale would cut down on the sex, however. It has become tedious and repetitive (perhaps that's the point - Jenlay society is just as dysfunctional in its way as early 21st century Earth).

4.0 out of 5 stars Breasts In Spaaaaaace! 19 Jun 2014

Yet another novel in the 'big bouncy boobs in space' series by breast-obsessed Niall!

Apart from the stupid tits stuff and amateur porn writing, this is a great story. I really enjoyed reading more about the characters from Niall's universe; he's made a good job of creating a well-paced plot and fascinating characters. The protagonists are a bit 2-d and the plot at times is somewhat tenuous and unbelievable but overall it was enjoyable. My swelling nipples are thrusting against my transparent shirt in lustful anticipation of the next installment....

(A shame the covers are so awful!)

Niall Teasdle's current series gets better and better. The story lines are stronger and more vivid. Looking forward to the next one.
