'Tower Of The Stars completes the story begun in A Quest For Orion, which told how western Europe was enslaved by the totalitarian tyranny of the Freaks - the Free Association of Kindred States and Nations. Tiny resistance groups survived: in Northumberland the 'Templar' gang led by Wolf and Alistair,and in Germany Walther's Deutsche Orden. At the beginning of Tower Of The Stars, resistance seems to have collapsed. Tom Jay's treachery has destroyed the 'Templars'; Wolf is dead and most of the survivors are prisoners in the newly-built City in the Sea. But Clanger and the resourceful fourteen-year-old Charlie are still free and trying to rejoin the others. Walther, also a prisoner in the City in the Sea, has half-won the confidence of the formidable First Interrogator, and Alastair's intuitive gift becomes even stronger in captivity. Slowly and painfully the survivors of the resistance are brought together under the protection of Charlemagne's Talisman and grope their way towards a climax which they cannot foresee but for which some highter power seems to be using them. 'Nosh, run, plan,' says Charlie wearily. 'That's all we ever do.' But all the time the pattern is becoming clearer. Together A Quest For Orion and Tower Of The Stars make a brilliantly plotted piece of science fiction, and also a moving story about people with whom the reader becomes closely involved.' 8vo - over 7Â¾" - 9Â¾" tall.
