Life as they know it is about to change forever . . .
In the blink of an eye, a colony from Earth finds itself sucked into a wormhole. Plunged on a new planet, they must forge new lives and work together to survive. A tiny ant, Antuna, bravely steps up and becomes a leader. She protects the colony by thwarting harsh elements threatening starvation. She fights against discrimination and leads the resistance to the evil forces corrupting their society. But can she save her friends and herself from impending doom?
Antuna’s Story is a Watership Down meets Empire of the Ants adventure, which reflects humanity’s frailties throughout history. A speculative fiction story where insects evolve and become intelligent enough to understand the chemistry of nature but lack the wisdom to prevent war and genocide. It provides a fresh, eye-opening look at how our world navigates the struggle between altruism and aggression.
“[The author] uses humor and clever puns and wordsmithing to draw us into an unbelievable (at first) tale, but one that we realize quickly parallels our own history. [The novel] stars our six- and eight-legged friends, but really uses them as caricatures for our own most dark and worrisome wrong-turns, our troubled history. [It’s] an adventure that spans evolution, deep-space travel, . . . and geopolitics.” —Prof. C.M. Buddle, Entomologist & Associate Provost, McGill University.
