Synopses & Reviews
In Nothing Sacred Nebula Award-winning author Elizabeth Ann Scarborough wrote of spiritual hope and healing against a backdrop of nuclear catastrophe. Now a daughter of those who survived that twenty-first-century apocalypse sets out on a mission of salvation into a world gone mad. The valley of Shambala, high in the mountains of Tibet, is a magical oasis where the survivors of the nuclear Armageddon live a peaceful life. The ravages of age and radiation poisoning await any who leave the protection of Shambala - but one young woman, Chime, hears the cries of the lost souls outside the valley, and she knows she must go to them. Chime journeys forth into a blasted landscape that harbors strange creatures and unimaginable dangers, filled with countless souls who cannot be reborn, but are doomed forever to a shadowy existence. As the reincarnation of the legendary Terton, who founded the village in Shambala, Chime must now fulfill her earthly destiny: to bring peace and renewal to a shattered world. In Last Refuge, Elizabeth Ann Scarborough has written a moving novel of spirituality and redemption.
