Shooting stars don’t land. They’re meteors, bits of rock that burn up in the atmosphere. The meteors Lannes saw landed in the Kenned Valley and flew up into the stars. They weren’t meteors at all. They were alien spacecraft. Until he peeked over the edge of the valley, Lannes had never seen a machine that could fly or people without fur.
If the aliens had stayed in the valley, they might have been safe. But they didn’t. They assumed the Cadorie were too primitive to be a problem.
In an all-out war, the Cadorie don’t stand a chance against the invading aliens. They don’t even have aircraft. But there are other ways to fight.
The League of Free Cadorie is a coming-of-age story set in a time of political change. Kefan is groomed from birth to be a famous singer, but his true genius lies elsewhere. Lannes is a farm boy. He didn’t plan to discover aliens, but he wants them off his world and will do anything to make that happen. Lenea joins her boyfriend, Kefan, and brother, Lannes, to stop the invasion, never expecting to become a hero.
