Global Dawning – The countdown begins is the first book in a trilogy for young adults on the most serious threat that civilisation has ever faced – global warming.
Global Dawning – The countdown begins is full of drama and mystery, humour and pathos. There is tragedy in Lufianblid, and intrigue in Felacynn. And both worlds struggle with disasters caused by the changing climate. At first, there appears to be nothing anyone can do, but then the world meets Maluk.
Global Dawning – The countdown begins is an upbeat, dramatic and thought-provoking novel. Not only will it entertain you, but together with Books 2 and 3, the Lufianblid trilogy will grab your attention and make you see that you can actually do something – to help yourself and to help the world.
In preparing the story, my research journey took me through the dark dens of climate change deniers and self-centred, shortsighted, decision-makers. Everywhere I went, I saw how human activity was hurting our animals, our forests and oceans, jeopardising the biodiversity of the planet and the lives and cultures particularly of indigenous peoples.
We are made wise not by the recollection of our past, but by the responsibility for our future.
