Melaleuca (Mel – la – luke – ka) is left in charge of her wayward cousins (two boys & two girls) when all of their parents disappear, and she and her cousins are whisked away to a strange, hidden land to be cared for by a dithering Uncle and a cruel Aunt.
None of her cousins will follow Melaleuca’s lead, as all of their lives they have been raised with no rules and left to run wild, making it nigh on impossible. What’s more troubling is the land has never progressed past the Victorian age.
When a discovery is made allowing them to use the powers their parents once wielded, she begins to understand. As she tries to guide her cousins using the powers, they are sent to a vicious, cruel, disciplining school where they find children secretly waiting for the Marauders to return. However, the teacher’s seem intent on breaking down Melaleuca’s resolve and crushing the spirits and bodies of her cousins, if necessary.
They are the last of their line. If Melaleuca and her cousins are broken then all they are sent to save will be doomed forever.
"Listed a a young adult book, sorry but I'm 63 years old and have been reading Sci Fi since I was 12. This is an excellent read and keeps you immersed in the story. Can't wait to get books 2 & 3.."
"It's rare I ready a fiction more than once... Harry Potter was the other ones I read again. This book was fun and hard to put down. Can't wait for the next books. I can sense this is just the beginning of a very deep story.
The Omega Children – "The Return of the Marauders" is the 1st book in a semi-fantasy, action-adventure series featuring subterfuges, secret passages, costumes of power, strange beings, and a madman hell bent on revenge.
