We'd only make the same mistakes over again and who has the time for that? One man has seen the benefit of this and has incorporated it into the saga of the Aethereal. Æthereal's Pride is the product of a fresh beginning and throughout it's pages it has attained each of the aforementioned stages.
Katherine gives birth to her daughter, finding that life among the Ursar clan has given the child many unexpected benefits. The Pride, yet another branch of the Guardian race, experiences rebirth through the one surviving family of Leonids after their home world is devastated by the Grays. They decide to cure the ills of their society beginning with their four cubs. A renewal of Spyder, who was severely injured in the previous installment, takes place that is unexpected by all involved.
The level of excitement in the battle scenes and the depth of the development of the characters and situations included in Æthereal's Pride has brought redemption to my expectations of the creative genius that is Christopher W. Wilcox, Sr. With the imagery and story line threaded throughout the series, it is worthy of branching into out as a mini-series or into the film industry for the large screen. I have believed this from the first novel, Æthereal, and that belief has not wavered. Look out, Star Trek and Star Wars,; here comes
