On the world of Gaea on the island of Atlaua, the human race worshipped the S'hazons as if they were gods instead of beings of energy who left their bodies behind as they climbed up the evolutionary ladder. Now Gaea is in danger because a comet is due to hit the planet in five years and the S'hazons and those with strong khi power have left the planet and traveled to a different Gaea in the multiverse where the comet will not hit.

These energy beings wanted Elinna Serru to come with them, for her khi power is very strong, but she turned down their offer. She hopes to find a way of harnessing her power to save Gaea but with the departure of the S'hazons, the people are divided as two religions compete for the hearts of the people. Elinna realizes after years of study that she must somehow find a way to unite the different factions and work together to stop the comet from destroying their world.

DAYSPRING DESTINY, the sequel to DAYSPRING DAWNING, is a very imaginative, colorful, and inspiring work of speculative fiction starring a heroine who is a cross between the oracle, Cassandra and Wonder Woman. The story line enthralls the reader so that they will want to keep this novel that seems to have classic written all over it. Leanne Berry is a gifted storyteller who creates a world so realistic one would think she lived there.
