A novel by George Warren
Not your typical fantasy world - At first glance the great water world Nuvelkebek seems the perfect backdrop for an epic fantasy. Certainly all the necessary elements are there: vast armadas that must do battle with sea demons: a land church that traffics in miracles and deals with divinities; strange creatures with incredible powers that lurk in the night... But when onto this stag e strides Oak a young adventurer as strong as his name implies, fantasy becomes reality and all the sacred mysteries profane. Oak may come to regret his success at uncovering the mummery of alien exploiters: for what chance have swords against blasters, or bronze clad armies against atomic weapons? Perhaps humanity would have been better off left to the delusion that it was after all the Dominant Species.
