LIBRARY BINDING *  ISBN 978-1-935722-96-0 * March 2019

Tarizon’s thirty-one states have been at war for over a hundred years. The cost of these wars has been the loss of millions of soldiers and civilians, the destruction of most of the world’s infrastructure, and a toxic pollution of the air that has made the planet nearly uninhabitable.

Then, miraculously, a young boy named Sandee Brahn and Whisper, a wild beast called a rhutz, come out of the wilderness claiming that the God Pelgrem came to them in a dream and gave them the task of bringing peace to Tarizon. Although many mock Sandee Brahn and Whisper’s claims, thousands flock to his side believing he truly is a holy man and is Tarizon’s last hope.

William Manchee's Tarizon: Supreme Mandate is science fiction about a young boy on the fictional planet Tarizon. At his adolescent age, Sandee receives an epiphany that he has to bring peace to his planet. This is ruined by constant wars dating back 100 years. The world is habitable, but projections indicate dire outcomes for the future. Sandee Brahn, along with a pack of rhutz, strives to achieve success to make his dream and the dream of Pelgrem happen. Will Sandee’s plan be a success before the future of Tarizon's civilians is doomed?

I enjoyed reading this book. The chapters are short and focus on the context they begin with until the end. This gave me the impression that the book was fast-paced, with more thrilling moments and action. The first incident between Sarna and Markis on earth caught me off guard. Such a technique made me keep turning page after page. Chapter titles are captivating as they convey the setting of the chapter. I anticipated some chapters with excitement. "Inspection, Vaceen, Tributon, 9 BU" got my attention. I wondered, "Who will be inspected?" Will they be caught?"

Furthermore, the characters are distinct and well developed. As a result, one can visualize the events of the story. This is revealed by political talks, which use jargon typical of real politics. The opposition, with independent candidates conducting negotiations in secrecy, cruel politicians portraying decency in public, and many other acts pertaining to politics and democracy. The book is also thought-provoking, with examples of incredible technology that could change human lives. How could I forget the author's creativity? It incorporates its dialect, which is taught in a fascinating way throughout the book.

In conclusion, I rate the book 5 out of 5 stars. It is flawlessly edited, and I encountered no grammar mistakes. Although not based on the earth, it advocates for freedom of speech and democracy and raises awareness about how profiteers stir up wars and sit back and enjoy the fruits of their seeds. There was nothing to dislike about the book, and its ending is satisfying. I recommend it to fiction and political fans. Fans of C/T/H/M will also enjoy this book.

In "Tarizon: Supreme Mandate" by William Manchee, readers are whisked away on an exhilarating journey to a distant world filled with political intrigue, alien civilizations, and unexpected twists. As a sci-fi enthusiast, I found this book to be a gripping addition to the genre, offering a unique blend of intricate world-building and engaging characters.

Manchee's storytelling prowess shines as he paints a vivid picture of the planet Tarizon, a complex realm teetering on the brink of turmoil. The meticulous attention to detail in describing the landscapes, societies, and technology of this foreign world is truly commendable. I was captivated by the author's ability to make Tarizon come alive, immersing me in its diverse cultures and political struggles.

The characters in "Supreme Mandate" are multifaceted and relatable, each grappling with their own motivations and moral dilemmas. The protagonist's journey from uncertainty to leadership resonated with me, as did the relationships he cultivated along the way. The intricate web of alliances and betrayals kept me hooked, eagerly turning pages to uncover the next twist in the narrative.

However, while the book is undoubtedly engaging, there were moments when the pacing seemed to lag. Some sections could have been trimmed down to maintain the overall momentum of the story. Additionally, a few character decisions felt slightly forced, requiring a suspension of disbelief that momentarily pulled me out of the otherwise immersive experience.

In terms of themes, "Supreme Mandate" tackles power dynamics, cultural clashes, and the consequences of unchecked authority. These thought-provoking themes added depth to the narrative, encouraging me to reflect on their real-world parallels.

In conclusion, "Tarizon: Supreme Mandate" offers an enthralling escape into a meticulously crafted sci-fi universe. With its intricate world-building, complex characters, and engaging themes, the book is a must-read for fans of the genre. While minor pacing issues and occasional character decisions prevent me from awarding a perfect rating, the book's strengths far outweigh its weaknesses. I give it a solid four out of five stars, eagerly looking forward to exploring more of Manchee's imaginative universe in future installments.

Rating: (4/5)

Tarizon: Supreme Mandate by William Manchee takes readers on a captivating journey through the intriguing world of Tarizon, a planet on the brink of environmental collapse. The narrative unfolds against the backdrop of the Group of Twenty (GOT), a powerful conglomerate overseeing major companies, as they convene to address the imminent crisis.

This sets the stage for a riveting tale of secrecy, strategy, and survival.

At its core, the story revolves around the pursuit of peace in the aftermath of prolonged conflict. Protagonist Sandee Brahn takes on the challenging mission of uniting disparate factions to establish lasting harmony. This narrative thread drives the plot forward in an inspiring manner, providing readers with a compelling emotional anchor.

Beyond the riveting plot, the novel delves into profound political and philosophical concepts. Themes of democracy, human rights, and the complexities of building a stable new world government to prevent future wars are thoughtfully explored. These elements add layers of intellectual engagement to the narrative, elevating it beyond a mere science fiction adventure.
