Inheritors of the New Kingdom (Paperback)

Despatched in 2 business days.


After he witnesses a dazzling object in the sky, research student Richard Jarman learns that part of the greenbelt around London has been destroyed, ostensibly by fire. Convinced that the UFO was responsible, he tells the police who react with scepticism. When he discovers that similar incidents have been occurring across the globe, Richard becomes obsessed with discovering the cause. He neglects his thesis and in his search for answers, becomes involved with an elderly vagrant and a nun who both witnessed the same phenomenon.

Richard and the nun fall into the clutches of a shadowy religious cult whose terrifying leader believes that the destruction of the world's vegetation heralds the end of the world and the Second Coming of the Messiah. The planet is plunged into even greater crisis when spaceships descend and a host of seemingly indestructible beings invade some of the world's most populous cities. When Richard and his girlfriend Fiona consult a famous medium, they believe they have discovered the motive for the invasion, but is it the right one?

Veronica McGivney spent her childhood in a small seaside resort on the Isle of Wight where her mother ran a guest house for holidaymakers during the summer months. At school, her main claims to fame were producing irreverent caricatures of the teaching staff and persistent truanting. Despite this, after gaining a BA and a PhD at the University of Exeter, she went on to pursue a career in education, working at the Open University and the Universities of Sussex and Nairobi before becoming a principal research officer at The National Institute of Adult and Continuing Education. After years of writing academic books and reports, Veronica now enjoys the freedom of writing fiction - something she has wanted to do since earliest childhood. She is a multi-genre author who writes novels and short stories, some of which have been short-listed in British short story competitions. She lives in a leafy part of Brighton where as well as writing, she tries to find time for painting, reading, gardening and playing tennis.
