In Annah and the Arrow, Book Four of Clay Gilbert’s science-fiction saga, Children of Evohe, Annah has been gone for three years, and most of the universe has given her up for dead. The Earth government, Homesec, still keeps a watch for any news, but there’s been nothing to report. On Evohe, Annah’s mate, Gary Holder, still keeps watch over the tree near the homeground of Annah’s parents, where he and a small band of her friends and followers lay her to rest. Annah and Holder’s twins, Linnah and Laren, are three years old now and have had to face the possibility they might never see their mother again. Annah told them all that she would return, in time. But that’s a proposition that seems more and more unlikely with the passage of time – or is it? That’s the question Annah’s disciples, and the man she loved, must face when, one morning, Holder wakes to find the trunk of the Mother-Tree split in half, and Annah’s grave lying empty. What will this mean for the universe beyond Annah’s homeworld and the course of galactic history? And what consequences will there be for the Children of Evohe?
