Author interview

Estvander pens an epic-scale space adventure about a group of hybrid siblings struggling to protect the future of the human race while coming to terms with their true identity. Inklebrawt Winklehank, a Huply, a hybrid of the biologically engineered immortal Plythi’i race and a human, who possesses both the logic and enhanced psychokinetic abilities of the Plythi’i and the forceful emotions of humanity, has always struggled to balance his Plythi’i powers with his intense human temperament. But in the face of the looming threat from the sinister Shepherd and the mysterious Tsr’Yyd, he must locate his long-separated Plythi’i siblings and form a team to protect humanity from ultimate destruction. The plotting is complex, and the narrative focuses on the Plythi’i siblings struggle to come to terms with their true destiny and their fight with the malevolent Shepherds and the enigmatic Tsr’Yyd. Estvander pits good against evil, with the religions of Huply and those of the other extraterrestrial beings battling for survival. And though the narrative spans lifetimes and crosses galaxies, Estvander never loses momentum or tension. Despite the novels’ epic scale, he has sketched intensely humane characters whom the reader will find it easy to like and root for. An original, strange, and beautifully written space odyssey.
