Detailed book overview
The Omega Children
Melaleuca (Mel – la – luke – Ka) is forced to take charge of her stubborn cousins after the brutal killing of all of their parents.
Taken to a mysterious land, they are raised by their indecisive Uncle and wicked Aunt.
Melaleuca’s cousins are however unwilling to follow her lead, given how they have all been brought up with no rules. Even worse is that the land has never developed beyond the Victorian age.
All however begins making sense once a shocking discovery is made, one that allows them to use the gifts that their parents once possessed.
But as the very last of their line, they have no idea what’s on the horizon for them.
Battered both physically and emotionally by the Vahn, the ruthless school of discipline, Melaleuca leads her cousins back to their base in a bid to recover their strength and confidence.
With Lexington saturated, Ari digging into the power of the land, and Quixote relentless with ideas, not to mention the “French Resistance,” insisting that they are the prophesied “Marauders,” Melaleuca has a hard time maintaining the non-violent values that they were raised with.
With too much suffering around them, will she decide to fight back at the risk of compromising their powers?
With Lexington is in a coma, Uncle BearNard and Dunk dead and Aunty Gertrude afflicted in the dungeons, many are convinced that the “Marauders” have returned to rescue them.
This only compounds the pressure on Melaleuca to lead the final assault on the Vahn.
When the Inquisat unleash a ruthless onslaught, Melaleuca learns that the Vahn will never leave them alone, and despite the Etamol’s dreadful warning of losing power, she knows she must begin forging an army.
Melaleuca and her cousin will have a new view of exactly what they have been trained for when they learn the hidden purpose of the Vahn.
Ari and Melaleuca incline towards each other as they oppose Lexington and Quixote.
Melaleuca wants to unleash sheer force and raw power, while Lexington attempts to persuade her to follow the gentle path which they have been trained to follow.
An army has however landed ashore, threatening to destroy New Wakefield.
As much as the Omega Children have thus far fought and triumphed in every battle, do they really have what it takes to defeat an army?
Will victory also come at a cost?
Lexington is convinced that it won’t take long before Melaleuca resorts to using force and all the power of the bracelets to fend off the army, an act that will come at a cost, as the cousins may be forced to stay on earth for 50,000 years, until they get another chance of fulfilling their ultimate destiny.
She is also torn between saving the hundreds of children, teens and adults fully relying on them and abandoning them in an effort to seek the higher path.
Will the cousins play their part in marking the beginning of a new age? Or will their thirst for vengeance allow darkness to take over the next age?
