IONA: daughter of a brilliant father who changed the Earth's weather and a martyred mother who led rebels against the despotic Gaia Dome theocrats. Reared in secret by a hermit, she crossed the dead zone to seek out the destiny her parents had planned for her years before.

KULL: son of slaves, privileged ward of a Dome ruler, reluctant solo argonaut to cannibal shores, and guerilla tactician. Together, they would gather a ragtag army of cave-dwelling warrior children determined to wrest their freedom from the corrupt Gaia clergy and bring a ravaged planet back to life.

Runes of Iona is book two of the four book THE BLESSINGS OF GAIA series. September Snow, published in 2006, is volume one. (Books three and four are forthcoming). In the world of September Snow global warming and climate change have been rife for decades. Gaia, a new religion, originally devoted to preserving the Earth, has been perverted. A draconian regime controls everything - even the weather. September, a woman of intellect and physical prowess, leads a rebellion. She seeks to save the planet from a corrupt system, so the healing process of Earth can begin. A futuristic, dystopian story where mankind and the physical life of the planet are on a collision course. Runes of Iona continues the story.
