A Tale of the Young Wizards
(A book in the Young Wizards series)
A novel by

When the renowned saurian Species Archivist to the Powers that Be summons young wizard Kit Rodriguez to participate in an urgent off-planet intervention intended to save many millions of lives, Kit's hardly going to say "no."

He soon discovers that not only he, but his wizardly partner Nita Callahan and her sister Dairine, his friend Ronan Nolan, and thousands of other wizards from Earth have also been drafted in to intervene on the distant world called Tevaral. The planet's single huge moon Thesba has become tectonically unstable and will soon break up, raining its massive fragments down onto the surface of Tevaral and completely destroying it. The wizards' mission: to extract Tevaral's hominid population and "raft" them off-planet to new homeworlds before the apocalyptic disaster begins.

There's only one problem: millions of the people of Tevaral don't want to go.

Kit, Nita and thousands of their fellow Earth wizards must now race against time to find a way to save the Tevaralti despite their near-symbiotic relationship with their beloved world and its unique life forms. As doomsday inexorably draws nearer, hope is fading fast, and it seems like it's going to take a miracle to keep the people of Tevaral from being wiped out. True, wizardry is all about miracles. But will one turn up in time?...

"Young WIzards: Lifeboats" is a 90,000 word canonical work in the Young Wizards universe, and falls between YW book 9, "A Wizard of Mars", and the forthcoming book 10, "Games Wizards Play".
