BELTERRA by Carol Ann Kauffman
The Time After Time Series follows a pair of unlikely lovers on their adventures through life and love, this time on an alien planet divided into four tribes. When Neeka, daughter of the Lord of the Warrior Clan, was out picking lavender in their vast fields of the West, she felt him coming for her, and she was ready. When Braedon, Lord of the Soldier Clan of the East, rode into those lavender fields, searching for the woman of his dreams, he had no idea if she were even real. But there she was, standing there looking up at him, smiling. He reached his hand down to her and waited. She accepted his hand, beginning their adventures together, changing not only their lives, but the course of life and unity on their planet forever. An alien planet. Or is it?
Dear Gentle Readers,
The sequel to this book is called Dark Return, where the indigenous race resurfaces from being pushed into the ocean and wants their planet back.
Of course, Braedon and the Soldier clan think all out war is the only viable solution to the problem by eliminating the bat-like creatures, the Batrachs, once and for all.
And, of course, Neeka and her people think a peaceful settlement is the answer. However, there is more at work in the deep underworld of the Batrach caves.
Look for Dark Return in the fall.
