Synopsis

Gaia's Children by Paul Kieniewicz

This Scottish novel offers a glimpse of a world ravaged by climate change, where heroes struggle against impossible odds to preserve the land, and those whom they love. In a fast paced narrative, the reader is drawn into the lives of climate refugees. Aberdeenshire 2050 In a world transformed by climate change, Scotland has become a war zone. City gangs battle homesteaders for food supplies. An unstoppable plague kills one in ten. A new race is born, the Lupans: golden-eyed and wild, they reject their mothers and live apart, speaking no recognizable language. Alienated from society, these Lupans are even hunted for sport. For thirty years Linella Sienkiewicz has taken in climate refugees. She has protected Lupans from captivity and death. But the Scottish government, responding to public xenophobia, plans to imprison the refugees and destroy the Lupan colony. The only man who can help her is Scott Maguire, a lawyer on the run. Infected by plague he has taken shelter among the Lupans. He discovers a fascinating and impenetrable society, destined to take up the evolutionary torch from the human race. Even as he is healed and transformed by living with them, he uncovers a secret that could spell salvation for humanity - but at a terrible cost. Against impossible odds, Scott and Linella must stop the approaching army. If the Lupans are destroyed the last hope for the survival of the human race will be gone.

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
