Where to buy it


Returning to Cholar for an extended stay, the planet-hopping kids who helped put Supreme Ruler Taziol IV on the throne aren’t expecting to find themselves taking another perilous side trip. But that’s before intergalactic villains make off with the monarch’s two small children. The kidnappers want a royal ransom and aren’t picky about where it comes from. They’ll turn the tots over to whoever meets their demands, be it the distraught parents or some other interested party. Such as the vengeful, power-hungry, Drazok. And Taz’s intrepid young friends aren’t about to sit back and let that happen!

About the author

Renee Duke grew up in Ontario/B.C., Canada and Berkshire, England. Due to a treacherous re-drawing of county lines while she was out of the country, her little English market town is now in Oxfordshire, but she’s still a Berkshire girl at heart. After qualifying as an Early Childhood Educator, she went on to work with children of all ages in a number of capacities, including a stint in Belize, Central America with World Peace and Development. These days she still does occasional interactive history units with 6- to12-year-olds at an after-school care centre but is otherwise retired and able to concentrate on writing. Mother of one son, and servant to two cats, she resides in Kelowna B.C. with her widowed mother.
